Three strikes Trudeau made just in time for the Mulcair Orange Crush
Technically Justin Trudeau had been quite careful with his personal image before he captured the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada mid April 2013, however something has indeed happened since then which has sullied that perfect image of a golden boy born of a Platonically platinum philosopher king father and former Prime Minister of Canada having 4 mandates, 3 majorities, 1 minority, 15 years, 5 months, and 14 days of power under his belt, that something is more rotten than anything in the state of Denmark. After pledging democratically to allow open nominations for all Team L'équipe Trudeau Liberal candidates in every single riding for this election, accusations of favouritism, tampering, and undemocratic vetted approval by a green light committee within the party executive here in Trinity-Spadina, Ottawa-Orleans, and Eglinton-Lawrence, plus another heated nomination battle starting to brew over there in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, not to mention local executive resignations here in Brantford-Brant, Don Valley North, and Hamilton-West-Ancaster-Dundas, plus more across the border in Ville-Marie has Justin and his team being called out as party wide toxicity by former nominees and supporters. On the lack of freedom of conscience, Trudeau has ended the long standing Liberal tradition of allowing pro life nominees and supporters by creating a party edict where all Grit members have no choice but to be pro choice and thus leaving only a couple old guard Liberals for Life Members of Parliament grandfathered in to remain so, but more damaging is how Justin has broken with another long standing Liberal tradition of civil liberty by supporting antiterrorism Bill C-51 against every single proof of political strategy for more support or even maintaining the base he once had.
Slowly but surely just sapping away support and melting the Liberal core of voters Justin needs, these are the key three strikes Trudeau made just in time for the Mulcair Orange Crush, allowing an Angry Tom to transform into a Happy Tom as the federal New Democrats roll tide from the Pacific and Prairies to Alberta and Québec which should traditionally be safe territory for the Liberals.
From the sixth book of The Republic by Plato, the younger Trudeau must have been told a valuable quote by the elder papa Pierre during his youth, that for the ideal Utopian city state Kallipolis and its harmonious just society to come true all educated philosophers must become real kings or at least those now called kings must genuinely philosophize while living simple lives and be the ideal philosopher king for all citizens to cooperate towards the greater commonwealth and good of all. Being a teacher who dramatically speaks first and then acts is one thing, but a philosopher is one who thinks first and then speaks, which is fundamentally different and diametrically opposed in the archetypal paradigm that is the human condition and its nature. Basically put out there for those wanting the cliffs or coles notes version, Justin needs to not only understand and positively learn from the legacy his father created for Canada and the party he leads but also that of the party, its storied traditions, and history itself for the betterment of it and his own leadership chances, or he risks going down for the count with lights out from a massive knockout before he even gets in one punch.
