No worries, some further thoughts... |
'I've been wondering why a UK journalist would make a 'documentary' like this about Canadian policies. It indicates that these 'anti-woke' warriors are uniting and attempting to impose their beliefs across national boundaries.
Well, they would view themselves as the embattled minority fighting against the imposition of woke beliefs on them, ie: an attack on their values, and I think they have a point, esp on free speech and medical coercion as you noted. So I'm not surprised they would seek to make allies in other countries, or learn lessons from what they've been through. Internationalism - a very leftist value, so I thought
'I wonder if it is based on an ill advised remark by her social worker.' - I wondered if that might be the 'innocent' explanation, but if that's something that was being read off a list of things to mention to struggling people - which is what it sounded like to me - then I still find it chilling that care workers can push that option possibly before addressing other quality of life issues. On the other hand I also think it's inhumane for assisted dying to never be an option, and the practice of keeping people alive through untold suffering, sometimes for years and years is also horrendous. Honestly, I'm uncomfortable with the state having any say in the matter, either way.
Thanks for the further info on residential schools. One of the interviewees suggested the children may have died of disease, as if that too wasn't the responsibility of the institutions.
