The Peachland Advocate is simply a small online presence for local lateral thinkers.  You'll read opinions here that often run counter to the standard progressive and globalist dogma or narrative. If you are a liberal or progressive, it's more likely that this site will annoy you.  It will nearly always run counter to the dogma of your 4 am talking points.  And because you are a liberal, it won't be good enough to just move on and read a blog that agrees with your opinion. You'll want to stamp out the site's presence.  Progressives often hate things they can't control.

Democracies are difficult mechanisms to manage. In a democracy, the majority rules.  The downside is that intelligence demographics tell us that the average IQ is about 100.  This number, sadly, is not sufficient for most people to be able to understand the greater game that is being foisted upon them.  This is especially true when those kind folks have busy lives with spouses, children, hobbies, and other activities.  In a liberal democracy, the system is turned on its head. The majority is automatically deemed to be unfair to special interest groups, minorities, and those too timid to come out of the shadows, and so what we end up with is a socialist dictatorship with democratic overtones.

This situation presents a governance problem.  The trick is to find the right balance that allows democracy to thrive and at the same time protect the interests of the aforementioned groups.  This is a very difficult task and one that all politicians are very aware of. Its why we view so many politicians as “fence-sitters”.

[soc_panel color=”green”]The only way we all win is if we can have a reasoned dialog at every step of the decision-making process.  And having said that, the next problem is introduced with the emergence, in the past few years, of the new progressive-liberal base.  They won't discuss facts. They won't enter any kind of dialog. If you say anything that these folks don't like, they call it “hate speech.”  These folks will aggressively vilify anyone who challenges their narrative. As time goes on, this is going to become a huge problem for them. [/soc_panel]
