I really try to keep away from politics, it rarely ends well. Sweet igloo, there’s a dumpster fire going on with our neighbours down south.
185,000 people are dead, which is the equivalent of having a 9/11 event every 3 days. 9/11 being the most defining US moment in the past 50 years, where everyone came together. Not saying the counterpunch was relevant, or on target, but the country at least was unified. And the whole world is impacted, the US decides to go it alone.
There have been escalating protests, with everything being put under a lens. Things people did 20+ years ago are being measured against today’s standards. And no one is actually doing anything about it, just posting blogs/tweets. People are still being shot for no reason other than the colour of their skin, and there’s no consequences.
This seems more like Lord of the Flies, where the adults have simply left the room. It’s us vs them, which is exactly how fascist states run. But it’s cool, cause the stock market went up a couple points.
It’s not like we don’t have challenges here in Canada, we most certainly do. Big ones. But they are such small potatoes to the insanity south of the border. It would be sad if it wasn’t so god darn scary. To witness the fall of a modern empire in such a small time frame is beyond comprehension.
I am reminded of two pertinent quotes.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Tomorrow I want to post something good. I need to.
