#TMXpipeline For yrs I've railed & laughed at regressive binary thinkers. Progressives like me believe every decision that's made in life has multiple outcomes & endings. Nothing is B & W, on or off. Today many progressives are angry & have decided binary thinking is OK now. /1
Twitter Can is being swamped by a binary mantra "One day it's a climate emergency, the next it's a pipeline." This is posted as if there is nothing on either side of that statement, there is no middle, no grey areas, no nuance, no variations, no other concerns except that one. /2
This is usually followed with how their party or organization would have made a different decision and how they're going to fight the evil Trudeau and stop the pipeline. Personally, I can't tell the difference between the tweets from #CPC, NDP, Greens, independent /3
environmentalists and other outside foreign actors who see an opportunity to disrupt Canada and who wish to do us harm. But, there they are, hundreds of binary demands and comments. To hell with reality. To hell with the 7 billion people in the world who have not yet found a /4
way to move away from fossil fuels and plastics. They all must, to a binary mind, stop all use -right now! As you tear and rend Trudeau for a decision you don't like remember the alternatives: Andrew Scheer and @CPC_HQ with the support of Hamish fucking Marshall manipulating. /5
Maybe we can hook up with the perpetually angry NDP who's binary world lives in proportional voting or unjust gov. Maybe the Greens will be able to convince the world to step back from the edge and save us all when you already know that will not happen. /6
Yell and fight the good fight but, remember, life is complex, it is not off or on. /end

P.S. Yell at me = block.
P.P.S. If your anger is so intense you are willing to elect Scheer, you are no friend of our planet.
