Looking back on my education in socialism by my activist teachers in Ontario, I recall receiving many gems of progressive thought. Math, Science, and English grammar, not much; after all, what purpose is an education but an indoctrination in the Global Warming science of Socialism? Anyway, Comrade Canadians (voters all, citizens some …) one of the treasured books that were the pillar of mathematics and science was The Guns of August by what’s her name, the broad who wrote that book. I am rereading the book. One of the sentiments (of doom, of the tragedy of imperialism [the highest form of capitalism, comrades!], of the evils of allowing white men to have guns … ) is that the First World War set the stage for world history for a hundred years. Well, my fellow Unhyphenated-Canadians, if you count on your fingers, you will see that the hundred year mark is coming up soon, in a year. (For Hyphenated-Canadians, teacher will tell you the answer[s] so that you will be equal to the inbred cracker rednecks).
So, what is being undone from the hundred year shadow of the First World War?
Germany is no longer a big meanie. Certainly German war guilt is fading. Obviously the perfidious Israelites are taking their place. I can find people who will tell me that the horrors found in Israel today are worse than the horrors found in the Nazi state. Being stripped naked for roll call (twice a day) at Auschwitz, eating rotten cabbage soup, and being made into soap is but a walk in the park compared to the present day horrors found in Apartheid Israel. After all, our present day victims are denied choice in their banquets and buffets.
I could go on and on, but in a country without freedom of speech, it is best to keep your mouth shut. None the less, faithful readers of Mitchieville, you have a year to contemplate the New Age to come, the truly post world war one period.
