How do you destroy a nation? you do it from within
this is what is happening, its domestic terrorism in its simplest form
we need to stand together, protest, more lobbying etc
we are the frog up to our necks in the pot of boiling pot of water

Let_Freedom_Ring, while I agree with much of what you're saying, some of the most entitled people I've spoken with are those in their 60s and older: Baby Boomers and members of the Silent Generation. I'm almost 40, so that puts me at the tail end of Generation x. Social security, lavish public sector pensions, a myriad of social programs, a real estate bubble. The offshoring of millions of jobs to Asia. The baby boomers voted for much of this crap. As far as the youth of today are concerned, yes, many of them are complete sheep who want the State to do everything for them. However, a high number of Millenials are either libertarian, conservative or especially nationalist. If you look at the recent election in Italy, the vast majority of those under the age of 30 voted for the rightwing populist parties. Yes, I agree. It's going to come to a head in the near future. Canada and the U.S. are both divided along political and cultural lines, and that divide seems to grow wider each year.
