Dr. Francis Christian's speech delivered at the "Free Speech in Medicine" Conference 2022, Baddeck, Nova Scotia
What a beautiful piece you have written Dr. Christian - marrying arts and science and using your love of poetry to convey the deeper meaning to what has and is happening. Much love for all you do. Blessings.
With moonlight pouring through my bedroom window and me therefore unable to sleep further I was delighted to find this essay in my feed from Dr. Alexander. Thank you!
Truly beautiful words. Will gladly share this post far & wide. Blessings in Christ.
I’m so grateful to have been present at the Free Speech in Medicine conference this weekend. Your presentation brought tears to my eyes Dr. Christian, and it gives me hope for the future as we shine much needed light on the institutions and structures that have been designed to maintain power and control over the populace. Thank you for your service.
Wow. What a powerful and moving essay. One of the best I've read in a long while. I hope you are writing poetry. I had not thought of the difference between bearing and using suffering. True. You give me hope that all is not in vain. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Exquisite. Thank you.
It is wrong to claim that Nazism is a RIGHT-wing position. It was the National Socialist Workers' Party that legislated racism. Both forms of totalitarianism are LEFT-wing ideas. The other end of the spectrum is in fact Anarchy. So-called "right-wing" conservatives and Libertarians favour small governments that do NOT interfere in the lives of the citizens beyond what is absolutely necessary and as little taxation as possible. The reframing of NAZI totalitarianism as "extreme right" was a deception on the part of Soviet communists who were embarrassed to be linked to the naked racism of 1930s German Nazis which used to be correctly understood to be a LEFT-wing (socialist) political party. It is the so-called "progressive", "liberal" LEFT that is driving the postmodern drift away from Science and reason and promoting Totalitarianism as the means of forcing their bizarre beliefs on the rest of us.
Some think they are living their best life now but we believers know that the best is yet to come...our Blessed Hope!....1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 & ending with verse 18 "Therefore, comfort one another with these words".
Thank you for your wonderful words of wisdom & comfort you have spoken at the conference. Blessings
Absolutely wonderful article - the ideas presented and developed are so important for citizens in a democracy to understand - particularly in these times we live in!!
I was sent here by the indefatigable Paul Alexander. By some odd quirk of fate, I had a minor revelation yesterday evening that all pain and problems, all obstacles, yea, even the traps set by The Enemy himself, are there to teach us, if we would only see them as such. And here I am, today, my insight (surely a divine gift) confirmed and rewarded in such eloquent terms by your beautiful essay. Synchronicity happens all the time if we could only pause and notice it. Many thanks: I share your optimism, though in the spirit of Admiral Stockdale, I expect many trials and challenges to overcome in the future.
This is incredibly written and has expressed perfectly the events and changes in society of the last three years, and over the last several decades. Thank your for this.
Articulated so well. Professionalism in science was always about seeking reality not ego, not propaganda for me. I have always been dismayed by those who did not uphold that uncorruptible ethic. For history does not remember or care. The reality is what counts in the end.
You too are a hero for humanity. Wonderful!
