From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

Ignorance is bliss

For Stephen Harper that is.

From cutting off funding for Sisters in Spirit, KAIROS, experimental lakes area etc.

His muzzling of scientists and bureaucrats and the refusal to answer questions from the media

His refusal to produce documents on the Afghan detainees or the costs of the F-35.

The stymieing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission looking into the residential schools issue even though these crimes were not committed on his watch.

His outright refusal to even consider an inquiry into the hundreds of murdered and missing indigenous women.

The killing off of the long form census, the burning of books. Hell I could go on forever.

This list betrays Harper's greatest fear, an informed, knowledgeable citizenry.

 He does not want us to know who we are for the simple reason that we are not who he says we are.
