Saskatoon Regressives would be pooping their pants if the order came down for a name change on Tommy Douglas Collegiate though.

Evangelical Christian, even if he was politically leftist, and he was fairly devout to the entire program. He didn't go as far as the "lake of fire" shitheads in the Wildrose or Reform parties did from the pulpit but as a minister of his time he didn't approve of the gays and said so publicly in church.

He also was essentially the father of our single payer health care system here in Canada.

This topic is yet another that almost tricks me into defending something when in totality I oppose the base concept. I'm so tired.

I don't think my heroes,or even people I vaguely look up to, need statues. They're pretty but fuck me if I really have to time to care.

I don't really care about the Confederate statues being removed or John A's or Tommy's. I care about racists and Nazis being removed. I don't think what happens to the statues whether they stay or fall will really change that situation. With that, whether a statue stays up or not, I couldn't give less of a damn.

John A isn't leaving the history books; just more appropriately objective information is being added, instead of the ol' one-sided bureaucratuc nationalist fairy tales. Keep such awful unquestioned non-critical reverement to dead folk and we'll get a nasty cult-like behaviour like the Americans and their "Founding Fathers".

Everybody's human and therefore everybody's flawed. All that can be done is hopefully the ones worth following and believing in have more good in them than the bad.

I've become a stickler for good intentions that benefit the most people, especially that of those getting fucked over.

Better than bad intentions, am I right?

Of course good and bad are empty words, but the way Bart, martin, etc talk there's literally no real plan for humanity. Their idealism is in the comfort they mythically felt yesterday. Where's the good intentions?

Where's the good intentions anywhere? Companies donating procedes to charities? All to make... a buck? Nausiatingly bizarre mechanism where these neoliberal freaks think they've harnessed bad intentions like greed for good. But instead, surprise, they fucked it up and the reality is actually psychotic. Talk to me about "finite resources" while living in a system that literally encourages hoarding and waste? They throw a couple bucks at the poors and think capitalism is absolved.

Literally why the fuck is an ideology with clear well-versed damn good intentions considered fucked up? Like my moments of defeatism really lie in the overbearing defeatist rheteric of, well, moderate politics. That repetitive nonsense sounds depressing as hell.

Humans may or may not be pieces of shit, but nurture is a god damn reality and even shitty people raised under good intentions chance better than shitty people raised under bad ones.

Just gotta regularily cull the tyrants, and encourage critical thought of your allies. Preferably we could get to something where there's no tyrants to kill, or at least a lot less.

That wasn't the reason the article gave for why there could conceivably be a move to remove Tommy's name from 'Tommy Douglas collegiate' in the future.

It was because of his support for Eugenics.

My plan for humanity is that everyone should be free to make a living, raise a family, and live their lives with as little interference from others as is humanly possible.

And if you want to live in a communist commune and work your ass off so someone else doesn't have to then I'll respect your freedom to do that.

All I ask in return is that you leave me the fuck alone.

So, to the batshit crazy segment of virtue signalers, Tommy Douglas is okay because he's the father of our health care system but, John A.Macdonald who was the architect of our country isn't?

Go figure. ROTFL
