The Scandal of the Century:
Thank you again Richard Klassen and Fifth Estate!

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."--Benito Mussolini, Fascist Dictator of Italy




"There are two types of laws: just and unjust... One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."--Martin Luther King, Jr.




In these pages of Ensign we have been expressing our truths as a reflection of our own experiences, and this continual reflection of our experiences has naturally evolved in our deeper understanding of ourselves as individuals and as part of society. The picture of our society is a depraving one as we have realized that under the unrestrained doctrine of the Free Market we have created a corporatist society where society is guided by the competing interests of groups, that is governmental agencies, businesses, non governmental organizations, professional bodies, charities, and so forth. Our individual rights have been suffocated for the selfish interest of the competing groups and as a consequence we have created what Canadian philosopher John Ralston Saul calls a "corporatist society."




A corporatist society is nothing else but a tyrannical society which reminds us of Fascism in Italy. In a corporatist society you don't go against the group (vulgarly called "loop") you belong to, you subordinate your individual freedom to the loyalty of the group, and if you prize your individual freedom then you are marginalized by every group and therefore you are what people say "out of the loop." In few words, the result of belonging to a group is that we trade our individual freedom for the competing interest of the groups, and therefore we trade our free expression with the selfish interest of the group, and therefore we trade our individual rights with the corrupt behaviour of the groups, and therefore we undermine democracy as we conceal the corrupt behaviour of the groups.


We live in a corporatist society and this fact is no more than certain in Saskatchewan, where police, the justice system, governmental agencies, and politicians all conjured for their ever greater self interest at the expense of the democracy and of the TRUTH. I am alluding at the "Scandal of the Century" which was aired last night-January 23, 2002-on the CBC program The Fifth Estate. We must be thankful to the people of the CBC Fifth Estate! We must also be thankful to Richard Klassen for not giving up his search for the truth, for himself and for ourselves, and for enduring the painful backlash for going against the corrupt self interests of Saskatchewan Corporatist system.

4 years
in jail

The Scandal of the Century originated in the late 80ies and early 90ies with the wrongful prosecution of Richard Klassen and of his family and friends for the sexual assaults against the three foster children Michael, Kathy and Michelle Ross. This wrongful prosecution was spearheaded by then malicious Saskatoon Corporal Brian Dueck, and this prosecution has destroyed the lives of the Klassen's family, the lives of the Ross' children, people were put in jail, Richard's dad Peter Klassen spent four years in jail for awful sexual crimes he never committed and his wife Marie died while he was in jail.


Today we learn that Richard Klassen's own lawyer Ed Holgate withheld documents from Richard Klassen in a concerted and tacit effort to derail the course of justice. Today we also learn the extent of our corrupt social system as prosecutor Terry Hinz has stated that he firstly advised then Corporal Brian Dueck that he had no case against the Klassen's family and that later he was specifically ordered not to talk to Richard Klassen. We are happy to learn that Terry Hinz could be willing to commit "career suicide" and tell the truth when called upon to do so.

law suit

We have a corrupt justice system and therefore we have a corrupt Minister of Justice Chris Axworthy. We have an alleged criminal in police superintendent Brian Dueck and therefore we have a corrupt Saskatoon police. We must be all thankful to Richard Klassen and the Fifth Estate for their courageous work, for Richard Klassen for never giving up his individual right to the Truth, and for the Fifth Estate to go ahead with their TV production of "The Scandal of the Century" as they were threatened of being sued by Saskatchewan Justice.
  Thank you again Richard Klassen and Fifth Estate!
