In Reaction to Marc Emery’s Extradition

Civilizations are remembered based on how they treat the most vulnerable in their society, and based on our performance so far, history will not have a favorable record of us, if any.

We have allowed greed, ignorance and apathy to victimize our children, to discard our elders, to brutalize our delinquents, and to dehumanize our invalid. Fear has consumed our collective. Its toxicity has rotted our humanity, which is why compassion seems to have vanished from our vocabulary.
