Does Saskatchewan’s Economy Shield It From Cultural Marxist Insanity?

Saskatchewan is the opposite of Ontario in so many ways. Ontario is over-populated whereas Saskatchewan is sparsely populated. Ontario’s biggest city (Toronto) is racially segregated (ironically) whereas Saskatchewan’s largest city (Saskatoon) is concerned only with segregating cyclists from motorists. Ontario is the liberal toilet of Canada while Saskatchewan is part of Canada’s Bible belt. Ontario is multicultural – meaning it has several cultures and no culture – while Saskatchewan remains predominantly white and Protestant; authentically Canadian.

Perhaps the greatest contrast between the two provinces is in the structure of their economies. Let’s look at some of the data from 2014 and apply some basic Math.

2014 Distribution of employed people, by industry, by province
Sask. Ont.
thousands
All industries 570.9 6877.9
Goods-producing sector 164.4 1382
Agriculture 44.2 81.8
Forestry, fishing, mining, quarrying, oil and gas1 28 33.2
Utilities 6.1 51.1
Construction 57.2 467.3
Manufacturing 28.9 748.6
Service-producing sector 406.5 5495.9
Trade 83.8 1047
Transportation and warehousing 29.2 329
Finance, insurance, real estate and leasing 30 512.1
Professional, scientific and technical services 26.4 559.9
Business, building and other support services2 12.8 334.7
Educational services 43.5 494.6
Health care and social assistance 73.5 798.2
Information, culture and recreation 16.5 316.5
Accommodation and food services 36.1 450.3
Other services 24.8 286.8
Public administration 30.1 366.8

 

The data for the Saskatchewan column was obtained here and the data for the Ontario column was obtained here.

Here are some of my observations (figures rounded down):

  1. The goods producing sector employs 28% of Saskatchewan’s labour force (164.4/570.9) whereas Ontario’s employs 20%. Saskatchewan leads by 8% and that is not insignificant given that Ontario’s population is about 13 times greater than Saskatchewan’s.
  2. Construction employs 10% of Saskatchewan’s workforce (57.2/570.9) compared to 6% of Ontario’s (467.3/6877.9).
  3. Healthcare employs 18% (73.5/406.5) of the Service sector’s workforce compared to Ontario’s 14% (798.2/5495.9)
  4. The ratio between the labour force employed by the Goods producing sector compared to the services sector is more even in Saskatchewan compared to Ontario: 164.4/406.5 = 40 (Sask) versus the overwhelmingly service dominated economy of Ontario which is 1382/5495.9 = 25

What should we make of this data?

First world economies are generally services based with manufacturing being outsourced. The two regional economies outlined above fit this general paradigm but Saskatchewan gravitates more towards goods producing sectors compared to Ontario. The former leads Ontario in Health Care as well. Primary industries (mining/fishing ect), Health Care, and Construction (and all the trades included in this category) are sectors comprised of some highly technical blue and white collar jobs. Technical knowledge is more effectively acquired from technical colleges/institutes and Saskatchewan has plenty of them around.

The point I’m getting at should be fairly obvious by now. Universities are the hotbeds of cultural Marxism and marginalizing these dens of leftist social engineering can go a long way in preserving the health of a functioning society. An economy that demands construction workers, miners, farmers, and nurses will necessarily produce fewer parasitic majors like Women’s Studies. If you remain unconvinced, just look at the 2013-2014 undergrad enrollment data from the University of Saskatchewan:

Accounting                                              370
Agronomy 175

Computer science:  312

Civil Engineering: 237

Nursing: 1077

Physiology and Pharmacology: 414

Pharmacy: 349

Religion and Culture: 14

Womens and Gender studies: 19

(Data sorted by Level, Major, and Academic year)

The data indicates that even in the University technical majors are far more popular than leftist majors.

Defeating Cultural Marxism

The most straightforward method to defeat Cultural Marxism is to simply stop giving elites our hard earned cash; we need to starve the beast. Boycotting universities in favour of technical institutes would strike a decisive blow against our elites. It is difficult to indoctrinate impressionable children with critical race theory and feminism in an institute dedicated to teaching JavaScript and aircraft engine repair. Technical institutes do not waste time on pointless (and subversive) humanities and social science electives. The programs offered at these institutions are short, focused, and provide their graduates with solid marketable skills. Programmers and mechanics do not require the government to create make-work positions for them on the taxpayer’s dime, unlike unemployable feminists, the perennial parasites.

Boycotting Hollywood is another effective method. Commenter Todd Lewis brought to my attention the “Production Code” which was an attempt made by America’s Catholics to police Hollywood immorality:

The most memorable and most effective boycott was organized by Cardinal Dougherty of Philadelphia, who forbade that city’s Catholics from watching movies in the city’s movie houses, which at the time were largely owned by Warner Brothers. His efforts created a situation in which Warner Brothers was losing $175,000 a week at the height of the depression.

Boycotting the mass media is crucial and is easily accomplished by throwing away your TV. I haven’t watched TV in years and I’m much better off without it. I do not even have one in my apartment. Cultural Marxism is a slow killing poison that destroys cultures imperceptibly over time. However, we have the power to resist this poison by refusing to give our elites the means to enslave us. Cultural Marxism is not invincible and even a humble “have not” province like Saskatchewan can halt this behemoth in its tracks.
