Mislav Kolakusic, a Member of the European Parliament, just humiliated Trudeau in front of the entire EU. His ruthless scolding of Mr. Trudeau’s contemptible actions has been viewed millions of times across the world. I don’t know enough about Mr. Kolakusic to comment on his political ideology or leanings, but from this video alone, I am thrilled he introduced the world to his thrashing thoughts about our Prime Minister. Watch his satisfying address below.
In this, Kolakusic exposes a critical truth about Justin Trudeau. Suppose you and I are chatting in a cafe over cups of cappuccino and coffee. Waiters and baristas are lazily relaxing, and people are enjoying the warmth of a Sunday afternoon on the patio at the shop. Suddenly, imagine a lumbering grizzly bear waltzing right through the front door and into the cafe. Smelling the invitation of freshly baked pastries, he absent-mindedly crashes through the counter, waddles over to the cooling rack, and devours the snacks.
No one doubts that the grizzly bear has incredible power in this outrageous scenario. He is able to smash through barriers and impose his will with ease. No one dares challenge him. However, the grizzly bear does not possess any authority. I would not follow him into battle; I would not pledge my allegiance to his “leadership” precisely because he has none.
Justin Trudeau is the same.
No one doubts he is a man of power, or, rather, that his office is a vessel of power. He is surrounded by armed guards, is the figurehead for one of the largest countries in the world, possesses (again, by nature of his office) an ocean of oil, and represents Canada on the world stage.
Justin Trudeau is not, however, a man of authority.
Max Weber thought power had a coercive element and authority as had a non-coercive one.* It’s evident Mr. Trudeau operates purely on the former. The peoples of Canada do what he says, not because Canadians want to obey him, but because if they don’t, he seizes their bank accounts and freezes their financial assets. No one, not even other leaders around the world, respects him. Compare our Prime Minster with the prodigious leaders of the past: Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Hannibal of Carthage, Gaius Popillius Laenas, Moses, and immediately we see that he is found wanting.
In reality, Mislav Kolakusic spoke what we already recognize and understand. Mr. Trudeau is not a leader; he wants to be a despot. He is not a man of honour; he is a servant of Moloch. He is the embodiment of the man Tolkien warned us about when he said, “the most improper job of any man, even saints (who at any rate were at least unwilling to take it on), is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.”**
