On Nations Within Nations Within North America, and Needing a Vaccine Against Not Being Able to Feel Smugly Superior.

Recently I came across an article that sums up some Canadian attitudes so perfectly that I have decided it is time to peck the keyboard about my own view of it. It was written by someone with this “progressive’ mindset but who works in Alberta. Find this article at https://albertapolitics.ca/2020/04/canadas-universal-single-payer-health-care-system-is-our-best-vaccination-against-the-neoliberal-virus/ I made a comment about …

Welcome to the 2020s

The Covid-19 pandemic is the perfect start into what I will call ‘The Turbulent Twenties’. Already it is catalyzing some of the disintegration and collapse which will mark this decade.

So, is everybody ready for the third world war?

Now something has happened worth writing about; US takes out Iranian brass hat as part of ongoing provocations. I should frame this in part as a belated reply to the reply I got from Caitoz when I speculated about the true motives of Trump. She said it did not matter if Trump really supports the …
