Magna Carta: How you can join the quest to bring the story of liberty to life

Brian LilleyArchive

This year marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the most important document in the history of liberty.

John Robson has reached the halfway point in his Kickstarter campaign to fund a film about its influence throughout the English-speaking world.

Today, we're often take our rights for granted -- or worse, we've let them slip away.

Governments everywhere are always chipping away at the rights enshrined in Magna Carta. We've seen this here in Canada. Just look at the RCMP's High River gun grab, or the bizarre goings-on in our Human Rights Commissions.

Robson's documentary about Magna Carta will inspire ordinary citizens to stand up for their God-given rights. That's why it's being funded entirely through donations from average folks. (No government grants will be used in the making of this film!)

Thanks John, another fighter for freedom in the face of the forces in Canada that are trying to diminish our freedom as citizens of a once very free country, now much less so, to the point at which people with traditional Judeo-Christian values are unable to speak out on certain issues that are dear to the left, such as gay marriage and gender identity, without fear of prosecution by kangaroo court ‘human rights’ commisions and tribunals that the left has brought into being to intimidate conservatives into silence and to punish us if we do not remain silent on issues of gender identity, gay marriage, etc. that they do not want to be open to discussion or (Lenin forbid!) free debate by us. Brian, please keep us updated on this project, and thank you also for courageously carrying on the fight to restore freedom of speech as well as the rights of private property owners in Canada, and for standing up against state-sponsored persecution of Canadians with traditional Judeo-Christian values and who treasure the principles of freedom outlined in the Magna Carta.

I really like Robson’s work and I will try again to donate. There is no button at the bottom of my screen, Brian, and the last time I tried to donate, from Brigitte’s piece, I got nowhere. I hit what I thought were the right bottons but was not taken to any screen where I could pay. So I guess I have to go directly to kickstarter but what do I type in there? Magna Carta? John Robson? I’ll try that.

Listen, you two. Keep up the good work. It’s important to break from the corrupt oppressors in big, organized government and its agents including in media.

I have to laugh when you say government “can’t” enter my abode and steal my property because police have, more than once, broken into my home without my permission and for no good reason, except their directors didn’t like the cut of my conscience and wanted to intimidate me into abandoning my protests about crime and corruption both in the government and in the corporate world. And they turned a blind eye to organized crime that stole all my assets. Other agents noted what was happening, the IPC, some individual cops with no power, some MPs and ministers but they had no power to stop it. When I complained to police, they literally laughed at and mocked me. The Crown then wrongly prosecuted me after I turned down a bribe offered by an agent for the MAG (ON) for a “lot of money” and a CEO job in exchange for agreeing to criminally exploit vulnerable victims of crime. Like trying to turn a sex trade slave into a pimp. And when I said no, I learned just how big the corruption of government agency has become. So good for you for turning away and appealing directly to us, the people who suffer the injustice. I can’t donate much but I’ll buy one of those DVDs and try to guilt some agent of the city where I live (Kawartha Lakes) into showing it publicly.

What I have viewed originally when thekickstarter campaign first got underway does not appeal to me as a viewer and lover of history. Meanwhile, Brian,this interview is well done, easily endorsed.
