I have always bragged CANADA is a tolerant country.
Someone, cannot remember who, said Jack – tolerant – is to tolerate a segment of the public.
If we respect the rights or ALL people – we should not tolerate anyone.
So I have a quote from a friend – ‘the in-tolerant left’ – there are two messages there ED
left – good or bad
right – bad or good
tolerant or in-tolerant
Think about it. Is a dark skinned lady from the Azores different than a person with a Norwegian background.
I am British – with a name that is French in origin. Benes became Bennes and then a T – bunch a pirates on the Isle of Jersey 3 to 5 hundred years ago.
Hard to find info on the pirates but my/our British history probably includes a slave owner or a coal mine operator with kids in the mines.
History is History – we really can/should expose the past but it is unfair to condemn people who made decisions many years ago.
Back to the real message – labels are NOT good.
Argue a point without diminishing the value of any person or point of view?
