Gamespot: Storm the gates.
O'er the Ramparts?
Not so's you'd notice.
It's all done indoors nowadays. Fighting computer-simulated epic battles:
Exciting, or what?!!!! Is it in our future for real? Will there be "a born-again world"?
I beg to differ with the following Guardian rabble-rouser. Covid-19 did not change everything -- the governments changed everything and merely used the virus as a cover for economic warfare, with a side-benefit of gaining more control over populations. Fifty or so years from now that's how this insane period will be recorded -- when the perps are conveniently dead and gone and don't have to say "sorry".
The Guardian: Covid-19 has changed everything. Now we need a revolution for a born-again world
Quite the rabble-rouser, eh? But whose agenda?
Take a look around. Is this a "born-again" world? Looks more like Dead Again to me. A lot of young, able-bodied zombies shuffling uneasily down the streets, staring straight ahead, hiding behind masks; showing the world what scaredy-cats look like. Meanwhile their elders go barefaced on the streets and smile and wave as they pass others of their own era, leaving the appropiate distance between them. As if they were in their right minds.
It's touching how it's reported that so many of our military finest, who bravely fought as missionaries against the evil Covid-19 in nursing jails - er - homes, have reportedly tested positive for the dread disease. Thing is, nobody's telling us whether or not they entered the nursing homes in that condition. Even the base commander, the guy one would expect to know the details, was irritatingly fuzzy on who was or was not tested in advance of that glorious mission: CBC (Scroll down the page to see video interview).
And nobody has bothered to elucidate this conundrum: that there were plenty of nurses set to pitch in to fill nursing home shortages, but Doug Ford chose the military instead. (See: Scamdemic on YYC)
Problem with the recent reports is that they don't tell us how many of the tested soldiers have or have not exhibited symptoms. The very fact that some tested positive seems designed to make us see them as braver than ever we knew.
But if the Guardian columnist (above) is correct about a coming backlash against the grave effects of the lockdown, guess who will bravely assist in stamping it out.
I wonder if they're already training for that.
Take a look at Parliament Hill. Is it a coincidence that it's been heavily walled off just in time for any seriously angry revolt that might occur as a result of the lock-down?
Come on, now's the time to do it -- when there's permission, indeed a somewhat vague encouragement, to wear masks -- because, when the cops photograph you (as they always did back when I was out on the protest beat) you won't be readily recognizable.
And that's about all the good that masks can do for anyone. In fact, if you're not very careful, apparently, they can induce in you a serious bacterial lung infection:
CBC: Masks: Everything you need to know but might be too afraid to ask
Of course not. They're designed for revolution: such as stretching out en masse on a beach blanket in the sun like normal, sane human beings:
CBC: Thousands packed into Trinity Bellwoods on Saturday as temperatures increased.

What a relief: it seems there are plenty of millennials who aren't afraid of death -- probably because they know it's mostly only happening to "boomers" (Like, like, worst generation ever, like: YYC), and that's as it should be.
I can see their point. I'd rather die, myself, than see it happen to somebody just getting started in life. Can't help wondering, though, what they would have done had the cops waded in. Surely they had considered that might happen.
It appears they were not the least bit concerned about the possibility of being collared and/or fined. So good on them for that! They should beware, however, that this is the very kind of thing that the military might eventually be called in to help out with -- and they carry bigger guns than the police.
Still, and despite them not giving a fig about what I think, I say more power to them; they might end up testing positive and develop antibodies and therefore not require the much anticipated vaccine, and they almost certainly will not die. If they include Bill Gates in their anti-boomer hate-on, and are smart enough to approve of the benefits of natural "herd" immunity, then this would turn out to be one of the finest rebellions ever.
It's cute how vague the experts-in-charge are capable of being. Toronto's chief medical officer says their behaviour is selfish and she reminds them that the "cases of COVID-19 in Toronto are still on the rise" without bothering to say whether any of those "cases" were actually ill or merely tested positive.
#1: Toronto's Trinity Bellwoods beach on Sat. May 23/20.
"Images today of thousands of people gathered in Trinity Bellwoods Park were unacceptable," the city said in a statement issued late Saturday evening.
#2: City to deploy more bylaw officers to Trinity Bellwoods Park following 'dangerous' behaviour ...
Dr. Eileen de Villa, the city's chief medical officer of health, condemned crowding in a popular downtown park on Saturday, calling the behaviour 'selfish' and noting that cases of COVID-19 in Toronto are still on the rise. (Dr. Eileen de Villa/Twitter )
