The Fraser Institute and the Subversion of Canadian Society

How American right-wing foundations, Big Oil and the CIA collaborate to undermine the social democratic systems of Canada and other countries around the world

Since the early 1970s, there has been a broad international agenda led by right-wing American foundations to sway public opinion towards greater acceptance of an economic philosophy called Neoliberalism, of which Canada’s Fraser Institute has been a pivotal part. 

Mithraism: Zoroastrian Gnosticism

The theory, originally proposed by Franz Cumont, that Mithraism evolved from Persian Zoroastrianism, is now generally dismissed. However, the theory has not been carefully examined. A primitive version of the Mithraic mysteries certainly existed among them, as can be determined from circumstantial evidence, where they contributed heavily to the Greek traditions of Orphism, which not only later emerged as prominent themes in Mithraism, but of Hellenistic mysticism in general.

Mithraism and Alchemy

The alchemical process, according to Zosimus of Panopolis, the foremost of the Hellenistic alchemists, and who lived at the end of the third and beginning of the fourth century AD, “is the Mithraic Mystery, the incommunicable Mystery.”i  However, alchemical teachings could have no known association with Persian Zoroastrianism. Therefore, what does this quote tell us about the nature of Mithraism, and its connection to alchemy?

Plato the Kabbalist

There is little that should impress you in the writings of Plato, who is supposedly the greatest philosopher in history. On the contrary, there is much that should concern you, as Plato has been the founder of many of the totalitarian doctrines that have plagued the twentieth century.

Love in the Western World

Ideal “love” has become an obsession in the Western world. In almost all modern popular music, the theme is that of this love. With this lust created in the male psyche, advertisers have made use of the frailty by exploiting the female form to sell nearly every product targeting them as a market. Then, trying to live up to this ideal, women then become victims of the diet and fashion industry, who rake in billions from women who have become obsessed with “body consciousness” and “looking young”.
