Some semi-political thoughts

I’m glad I’m heading into the alpine again tomorrow. I don’t think I can bear another day of “politics.”

I know that I “should” not engage in FB conversations that are political or religious. And yet there are times when it feels like we have to stand up and be counted. Not remain silent.

Two issues: Children being separated from their parents and the dwindling caribou herds. One issue on each side of the border.

I am aghast that city councils like Revelstoke have no intention of curbing sledders, ATVers and other back country activities. Nope – money first. Shoot the predators. That is not the issue. The problem is loss of habitat.

That’s rant number one. The other is much bigger and more frightening. Today I am seeing where the mindset if of people in America who say yes, keep children in cages. It’s the law. And besides, it’s the parent’s fault.

Right wing governments are proliferating.

We have learned nothing from the lessons of WW2 and the rise of Fascism. Here it comes again.

The last defence of the “righteous” is still the same: I was only following orders.

It breaks my heart.

And I need the alpine.
