I don’t even want to watch the news anymore. It is deeply concerning locally, nationally, and internationally.
I don’t agree with Hamas, but I don’t agree with Israel either, and these issues are nuanced and complicated and have begun to spread to other neighboring countries. I feel for Palestinians, Israelis and others in the region.
I don’t agree with the fascists, neo-nazis terrorists in Ukraine, and I’m not convinced Putin isn’t involved with encouraging this behaviour, and he is obviously causing further issues with his own extremist groups and therefore I don’t agree or trust his intentions.
I don’t agree with Canada’s stance on these issues, but I sort of get the logic from a UN stance and with regards to terrorism. I also am deeply concerned with other national issues related to Harper.
Locally it seems to me a living breathing Walter White type character was living outside Airdrie on his parents’ acreage and has killed his sister’s Father-in-law, Mother-in-law, as well as their grandson over some sort of business dispute. Given his history as a fraud, chemist, and drug cook, I suspect we’ll never find the bodies and it may be difficult to release him, though I suspect he’ll be killed regardless.
Which makes me concerned about other parts of my life, and a little too close to home.
Overall it is concerning that as a civilization we are struggling to move forward and move beyond terrorism, land disputes, and a desire for revenge and power.
