“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FELDSTED: Tossing the core principles religious teachings, such as the commandments and deadly sins, in the trash bin was unwise

Why incels are a 'real and present threat' for Canadians
The Fifth Estate / CBC News ~~ Jan 27, 2019

(On Jan 19th, 2019) a Colorado man named Christopher Cleary took to social media and laid out the plan for an attack that was coming together in his mind ... police tracked him down – en route to a women's march in Utah — before he was able to carry out his plan.

But it doesn't always work out that way when men who identify themselves as incels ... incels are an online brotherhood of men who say they are unsuccessful in their romantic attempts with women.

A recent count by The Fifth Estate shows at least 60,000 people are active in the three main public incel forums online.

The Fifth Estate has nosedived into tabloid sensationalism.

The principle architects of our brave new world, primarily college and university professors, are distraught at the results of their experiments and screaming for protection.

Unfortunately however, the victims of incel revenge will be innocents. We are the reaping undesirable results.

Tossing the core principles religious teachings, such as the commandments and deadly sins, in the trash bin was unwise – teachings whose principles are not exclusively Judeo / Christian. They appear in several different religions without fundamental differences. Sex education for prepubescent school students is unwise. It creates expectations that children are emotionally and mentally unequipped to handle.

We stopped teaching the fundamentals of compassion, decorum, ethics, etiquette, honesty, honour and personal responsibility ... and now wonder why we have a more brutish and uncaring society.

The lack of underlying personal principles is responsible for the domestic violence in our society.

Our focus on popularity, as the key to happiness and success, is inane. The result is that people who don’t achieve popularity feel abused and resentful. From there it is not a complex journey from resentment -- to rage -- to revenge.

The Fifth Estate / CBC article provides no insights into why some people are shut out of the mainstream.

They are victims of social standards and values they don’t understand; the key is education. We have a growing disconnect between what our education system is producing and real-world consequences. Incels is only one tiny aspect. Counting up 60,000 participants on incel web sites sounds ominous until you find out that is less then one-fifth of one percent of the males in North America.     

Not one contributor to this piece attempts to tackle the issue of how we can bridge the gap and bring incels into the mainstream, or how we can adjust social standards to prevent the creation and isolation of people in the future. Instead, they label incels as ‘right-wing’ or ‘extremists’ as if the issue is political - or that the labeling absolves them of responsibility.

Neither is true.

The architects of our brave new society created a problem and are now trying to avoid responsibility, by presenting it as a new problem to solve.

It is not new, and it is their responsibility.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
