Yes, sanity. Thank you. I seriously thought the Haida earthquake took us down a dimension or two because no one is getting it.
This text is so disappointing, to see the Canadian Government giving into the demands of the UN and pushing a propaganda type of text. The whole
outline, could have been so much more than it was. Upon looking over the entire text and reading large portions of it, I kept thinking this has
potential. Introducing lands and people and poetry, a touch of historical sociology versus our typical focus on wars and domination, empires, as
most of history seemed to be, this has the human touch. It could be dusted off and rewritten and be a really good text but it would require a whole
They used layout, and boxes to draw the eye and put some Sharia teachings or misogyny in history as a brainwashing technique. Slipping in words to
transform their message. The west imperialism and inquisitions were horrendous, of course they were, but in this text only the west was terrible.
The Islam wars were all about strategy and good planning, and their empires were fair, giving more to the farmers than the poor wretched struggles
they had before.
But in other portions, womens rights and Canadian values were upheld. I almost thought of it as a generic, adaptable text, if your class was
predominantly western you could focus on certain parts but if you had alot of immigrants and various other groups, you could focus on other parts.
But chapter 13 headed by the title, China the World Power, really showed its stripes.
No child should be subjected to propaganda as an education.
And our consitutions and laws should be the safeguards we need to stop this.
Instead our laws are set up that Government officials and ministry can pretty do as they please, and create portals to allow anything they want in,
and they can create unlawful, unconstitutional legislations at will as well, and no one is willing to stand up en masse to say, NO WAY. And have them
all systematically overturned, by non partisan people judges (because corrupt judges are another problem).
I keep thinking our battles should be legal, and people need to be made aware with unity and responsiveness to all tactics to overturn our sovereign
freedoms and human rights.
