  1. Identity: Me, Them – Us

    We all have an identity, it forms who we present ourselves as and informs who we align with. It is something we do not really talk about outside of an Us versus Them narrative though. I think that should change, because I believe that is where most of our societal conflicts stem from.

    A lot of people never have that option and do not expect to because it is not and will not be in reach no matter how hard and long they work or save. Having a cottage is not as common or normal an experience as it appears to be expected – it is a reflection of wealth status. So a 2nd home should not be treated as equal as an only home – it is not a necessity, it is a luxury.

    The Milk Industry is making a splash lately with how Millennials have ended up bring back Milk Couriers. Great news for those who love sustainability. Unfortunately many members of the public have taken this news and decided to damn the milk industry all together, citing many things that are indeed harmful practices.

    The problem is that there is a conflation between ‘alternative medicine’ and ‘medicine’, and along with that, that ‘alternative medicine’ is even an acknowledged term to begin with.

    When viewing these I frequently internally laugh with the thought of “so long” because these industries that are crying havoc are really just being revealed as the unnecessary things that they are and will not be missed.

    The claims of demise I did find odd were,

    It needs to be remembered that while rapists should not be excused from their actions – they should also not be treated as forever damaged or purely evil, but as someone who needs help to get on a better track of mind with regards to consent.

    Funny thing, I may agree with the vast majority of Progressive, Liberal, ‘Leftist’, Socialist, ideas. But damn it, I am a pragmatist. Waving Banners and Yelling your ideas and expecting instant results is no way to get what you want…

    So far I have been very please with Justin Trudeau, until the back peddling with fixing the Election system. In that I agree we Canadians need to put his feet to the fire – and I am not going to be whining about a pet system being the only good system – any of the proportional systems, and Alternative Vote systems are a vast improvement to the First Past the Post system.

    Now that traditionally minority groups in the USA are becoming equal in population and probably will become the new majority, the racist propaganda has increased and has gone to the point of being politically acceptable rhetoric. Leading to an openly racist nominee to be elected President.

  18. American may face charges for spearing Canadian bear

    ‘American may face charges for spearing Canadian bear’ is the headline of a BBC article about an American who legally spear hunted a bear, filmed it, put it on youtube (which has a lot of hunting videos of that nature), got a lot of flak online, which resulted in the Alberta officials planning to ban spear hunting of bears. The American in question had since taken the video down because of death threats – yes, people are so upset of someone legally killing a bear that they threaten to kill the hunter. Sound hypocritical much?
