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

A Clarion Call: What Min Said

I read a lot of blogs each day, much preferring them to the corporate media. They run the gamut from pedestrian to brilliant, with everything in between. Today I had the pleasure to read a brilliant post by the irrepressible Min Reyes titled Letter To All Canadians and I urge you to take the time to read it yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Here is a snippet

Don’t look up at politicians. Look at me, look at your neighbours, look at your parents, your fellow tweeps. Look at your fellow Canadians. The government is only a tool for governing. We, together are the government. Our politicians are nothing more than our representatives that unfortunately, due to the nature of the power structure, become the governing individuals. When did we lose sight that we, as people, form a government with rights above that of politicians’ greed, interests, and perspectives.
