Bill and BC Mary. Obviously you two have been standing up for the vuelas (freedom, democracy, integrity etc) that most commenters hold dear and that we as a country have fought for in the past. You are deeply appreciated for all the light you share in standing up and doing so. You have kept us informed over a long period of time, and all for little reward.I see what happened in Germany pre WW2 (not that I claim to be any kind of expert) as a progression that took an apparently unusually progressive and open minded country and slowly turned it into a hell that expanded far beyond their own country. Most German citizens weren't paying much attention at first. Brings to mind an old anonymous Chinese quote - something like 'What care I who rules the land, as long as I am kept in peace.' That quote has certainly applied here in BC for the past 9 years.The much quoted true warning that all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men (and women) to do nothing is a reason to always keep ones eyes and ears open to the beginnings of progressions that have the potential to lead to hell - which has been arrived at on many occasions in many different places throughout human history, with inevitable differences (we humans are kind of complex creatures) but with similarities as well. (i.e. China during the Cultural Revolution, Rwanda more recently). I think it is fair to note developing similarities as they unfold in any human system, given that nothing is ever repeated exactly in history but that certain lessenings of freedom, information, justice, and integrity are usually involved. It is much better to notice and intervene early. If ever I was to compare anything going on in Canada today to the Nazi period in Germany I would deeply hope to be proven wrong - because of early intervention. I haven't read the Nazi referencing comments, but perhaps people are commenting in that way because they see the beginnings of a potential path to hell and they want to do their duty as good men and women and intervene early.
