(thread) #cdnpoli " What is the #NewNormal" ?

"... hasta donde debemos
practicar las verdades?
hasta donde sabemos..."

True. We don't know everyone else's stories.
I don't hate people who support #communism .
I guess many of them "have a dream".

Capitalism has allowed me to prosper, with relative #freedom . Maybe not as much as I would've liked to. I don't live in the Bridle Path, never will. But knowing ppl who are called #NIMBY , both here and there, I can assure you no one refuses to give a hand for those in need.
The problem is human nature.
Who's in need, and of what?
We all are, always will...

I was raised in #LatinAmerica. I was once on the side of the "opressed", now I am in the side of the "oppressor". I know what it's like to grow up against American #imperialism .

1. They keep denying it, but now Masschusetts, France, and Canada have seen #COVID19 medical equipment diverted to the USA.

45 is letting other countries/states do the hard work of sourcing materials, then swooping in to outbid in order to hijack them.

2. Les gouvernments de l'état du Massachusets, de la France, et du Canada remarquent que de l'équipement vitale pour lutter au #COVID19 a été détourné et redirigé aux États-Unis

Reading Adam King’s piece yesterday in The Conversation made be think about @BernieSanders’s workplace democracy plan and what a similar plan might look like in #cdnpoli berniesanders.com/en/issues/work…
@BernieSanders First, many of Bernie’s plans are uniquely American. #canlab does not have to worry about public medicare (already exists!) or right-to-work laws (don’t exist in #cdnpoli). Bernie’s plan is so radical in part because the situation for workers in the US is so bad.
@BernieSanders And some of Bernie's plan has been in place in #cdnpoli provs for decades: first contract arbitration; right of public workers to strike (#skpoli since 1944); banning replacement workers (#bcpoli & #qcpoli since 1990s); stopping companies from shifting ownership to avoid a union

Well, la Journée internationale des Patriotes (Quebec’s Patriots’ Day) is almost upon us and, as in years prior, there seems to be little consensus as to its significance, as to what it means. #cdnhist #qcpoli 1/8
Historians and political commentators have described the Lower Canadian Patriots who rebelled in 1837 (and for several days in 1838) as deeply egalitarian – but also as a predominantly middle-class group seeking to extend its influence and jealously guarding its privileges. 2/8
Sometimes democrats, sometimes decolonizers, the Patriots have been made into French-Canadian nationalists, but also into representatives of a Canada-wide push for colonial autonomy (regardless of ethnicity), and into Americanizers and annexationists. 3/8

I am adopting "The Wictor Block" Rule:

Be smart/playful/sincere....Feels Good Man

You come at me too hard and aggressively....looking for a response:
I will Block and Move On.

1 of 80) Please bear with me, because the following is filled with plenty of foul language & I'm taking off the professional mask to speak with you as a human being. I've had enough & I've hit my limit, putting up with all the #MeToo bullshit in #CDNpoli, #ONpoli, & #CDNmedia
2) For the past 2 years, you've been ruining my #FamilyDay because the lot of you picked this holiday to shove an alleged child molester down my throat. It's the ultimate in sick behaviour & your choice of holiday is astounding, to champion the cause of #ChildPorn in #CDNpoli
3) What's worse is that forcing me to say those words actually makes me appear like I'm out-to-lunch. Your outrageous acts of gaslighting, censorship, & obstruction, have made it impossible for anyone to tell the most important #MeToo story in #CDNpoli currently
