Today I want to talk to people who have a big blue vein on their forehead.
Men and women who are always at the end of their chain will be bashing politicians.
Can you stop screaming for two minutes and look around?
We are here in Canada.
Not in Syria. In North Korea. In China. In Belarus. In Somalia. Or in Turkmenistan.
Do you know how many people want to relocate with you?
We are in heaven. One of the best places to live in the world.
Based on GDP per capita, life expectancy, social safety net, absence of corruption, health, security.
And, yes, freedom.
Your sacred freedom.
Can you shut up for a second and wipe the foam off your mouth?
Your big bottom
Is all right in Quebec?
Of course not.
Personally, I want our language to be better protected and Quebec to become a country.
But there is nothing that cannot be resolved democratically.
The problem is democracy, you don’t care. When it’s time to vote, I’d rather go buy another bag of Doritos than go to the polls.
“It won’t work, they’re all intersections…”
What a great excuse to sit on your ass.
Come on, presto, another insulting email. And another sip of beer.
If everyone was as tough as you, we wouldn’t have had Employment Insurance in 1940, the Labor Code in 1964, Health Insurance in 1969, and Medicaid for Dying in 2020.
Long live democracy
Here’s a great novel I just read: Desire teacher (Professor of Desire) Philip Roth.
A book about male-female relationships.
What does this have to do with politics?
It’s the story of a guy who is always attracted to crazy, complicated women, and always finds himself in intense, feverish, painful romantic relationships.
Then, one day, he meets an “extraordinarily normal” girl, as he puts it.
A stumbling woman. Funny. Soft. symmetry.
At first, he finds her flat. He misses his previous life which felt like a roller coaster ride.
Later, he realizes that this is happiness. It’s quiet. It is very clear. Neither too high nor too low.
Why am I telling you this?
Because you remind me of the hero of Roth’s book.
Democracy is the most beautiful of systems, but you cannot feel it.
You find it boring. Regular. In a democracy, changing things takes time, it’s a long-term job, you have to show self-sacrifice, patience.
You love revolutions, crises, riots. Play as heroes.
It’s too much!
In that way, you’re like Roth’s character.
Immature. infant And condemned to go round in circles without accomplishing anything.
