Support Free Dominion Against Richard Warman and Government Censors

(1) Comments | Posted February 5, 2014 | 12:25 PM

If there's one thing I can say about Richard Warman without getting sued, it's that he knows his way around the system. As a human rights advocate, he's brought more suits before this country's various "quasi-judicial" Human Rights Tribunals than any other lawyer or group -- though that's a bit...

Banning Child Porn Won't Hide it From Pedophiles

(22) Comments | Posted July 31, 2013 | 9:43 AM

It's not a coincidence that David Cameron has been forced to turn to Chinese corporations in trying to implement his ridiculous ban on porn -- this is a relationship between government and citizen that has already been perfected by the world's premiere communist regime. MP Joy Smith's...

How Rex Murphy Went from Critic to Crackpot

(173) Comments | Posted July 28, 2013 | 8:29 AM

Rex Murphy is among the people most influential in shaping the way I think. Not what I think, mind you, but how I translate my feelings to thoughts, and my thoughts to spoken arguments. I can remember watching his segments as a child, this owlish rhetorical warrior who somehow seemed...

When I was in elementary school, I remember telling a classmate that I didn't understand being afraid of dying -- how can you be afraid of a nothingness of which you won't even be aware? I had no idea that the kid I was addressing was The Religious Kid. A...

(92) Comments | Posted July 12, 2013 | 8:16 AM

The Ludicrous Defence of Canada Day Terror Suspects

(5) Comments | Posted July 10, 2013 | 12:11 PM

I don't begrudge Tom Morino his duty to provide a full and robust defense for his client, home-grown terror suspect John Nuttall. However, a recent claim that Nuttall and his co-conspirator Amanda Korody may have been entrapped into a plot of mass murder, the existence of which they...

New Rage Over Old Forum Posts Make Politicians Look Irrelevant

(0) Comments | Posted May 11, 2013 | 1:29 AM

I don't want to overstate the extent to which B.C. provincial politics, an insane collection of unsuitable weirdos like a political Japan World Cup, are representative of larger social trends, but there's something interesting happening in the lead-up to the election. Already there have been several high-profile firings and...

Nakoula Is An Artist, Because He Offends

(39) Comments | Posted September 20, 2012 | 4:31 PM

What a mess; the Middle East is one again aflame with religious indignation, the French continue to take rioting to the level of a national sport, and here in North America we've forgotten our most basic constitutional principles.

Theodore Adorno said it first, more than...
