Truth and Capitulation; A Canadian Colonizer’s prayer for the next 150 years

“We can, if we have the wisdom, light a fire in this place and time, so bright and clear that it will be seen by all the children of man. Many of whom still huddle in darkness and misery in every corner of the earth. Let our actions be a blazing beacon of hope in a world of Donald Trump and YouTube beheading videos. Let us be the example to our children of what is possible for humanity when people of reason and good will work together in good faith.”

A letter to my American cousins

You seem to be afraid that Donald Trump will make America more violent and less tolerant. Yet you presently live in a country where in large parts any basement-dwelling, mad-at -the-world teenager can open-carry a loaded assault rifle into a family restaurant. The only way the management of the restaurant could refuse this individual service is if he were gay and it conflicted with their religious beliefs.

Why Canada should consider retiring its Armed Forces, forever.

“The definition of insanity is repeating the same action again and again and expecting a different outcome.
So perhaps it is time for our society to re-examine its relationship with institutionalized state violence. “Et decorum est pro patria mori ” is the fundamentally flawed holdover of more primal times and neither this nation , nor the rest of our race can continue to accept the morality, legality, or indeed utility of allowing organized slaughter on a mass scale. Pretending its not an insane, primal rending of flesh because the participants wear matching outfits is increasingly not the path to the future.”
