So we're just about done this I got thoughts about this last paragraph here: Molly Grace and her staff had anticipated a violent reaction from les Quebecois once trouble started, and as soon as it did, their agents contacted various native leaders, most of whom were as shocked and opposed tot he uprising as any … Continue reading 59-The Fighting Begins (4) – Beneath the surface
[Deep Breath] Okay. Time to kick things off in down town Montreal. [Second Deep Breath] Here we go: Then came a sudden screeching of tires and gunshots in the air, as a disordered convoy of pickup trucks and cars roared onto the streets. Men, mostly, waving rifles and shotguns. In what seemed only a moment, … Continue reading 59-The fighting begins(3) – Stampede!
Our Featured Image is a coffee mug that I've had for years. I took the picture myself out on my balcony. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but my father worked Indigenous Affairs back when it was called DIAND (Department of Indian Affairs & Northern Development).

***Note before we begin: This post deals with things such as terrorism and bombing attacks from a technical perspective, and analyses a scenario in which these occur in a Canadian city.

This is out of concern for misinformation that is currently flooding the internet. In times of crisis, some people rise to the occasion while others make … Continue reading The idea of symbols
NOTE: As I mentioned before, I don't want to turn this blog into a place where I speculate about destroying Canada, or any other country for that matter. I also don't want deep into the weeds about technical matters, both because it can get boring and because some of it might push into classified territory. … Continue reading Sginal to Noise

"There is no struggle for life but, rather, life is lived for struggle." (See link above, pg 7 para 9) A fascist movement is one that defines itself largely by its enemies, and the … Continue reading 58-A Nation moving forward…
So I was looking for a neat way to roll this next post into the deconstruction, but I never could find an opportunity so I'm just going to present it here. It's basically an idea (or the faint outlines of an idea) that's been percolating in the back of my mind for a while now, … Continue reading Uniform Thinking
A note before I begin. A lot of the ideas I'm building on here were first raised by Canadian YouTuber Dan Olson, at Folding Ideas. Early on in the pandemic he posted this video, which planted the seeds of time frames and human perception. If you find this article interesting, give his video a watch: … Continue reading Eyes Front! – Some further thoughts about this pandemic
