“Re-Enlightening Canada” provides a concrete legislative program for re-establishing in Canada the best in the Enlightenment political tradition.These values include freedom of expression, respect for diversity of opinion, scientific rationality and respect for the equality of all individuals, rather than acting on the basis of group identity and stereotypes.
The program is intended to appeal to reasonable people across the political spectrum. It is a proposal on how people of good faith in democracies can “reason together”. It is intended to be a moderate and practical response to the ideological excesses of our time.
Readers of books such a David Bernstein’s “Woke Antisemitism” and John McWorter’s “Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America” will find in “ReEnlightening Canada” a measured and practical program for reform. Its aim is to not only recognize the profound political challenges of our time, but to set out an achievable way forward.
