To desire the end is to desire the means: if you are not prepared to do what is necessary to achieve it, you never wanted it at all.

Next year, Canadian schools will be implimenting a new oath based on the Pledge of Allegiance in the United States of America. Children will be required to sing the national anthem (as opposed to what we do now - stand up, and wobble back and forth, half-asleep, trying hard not to slump back down in our chairs), and before (or after, I can't remember) the anthem, they will all raise their hands and give a Pledge of Allegiance to the Queen of England. This is wrong on so many levels, one of them being that Canyda is supposed to be a DIVERSE country of many nationalities, religions, and so forth. Now it's patriotic assimilation. And since I'm going back to high school next year, I'll probably have to do this too. Then again, I'll probably refuse and suffer the consequences (suspension and possible expulsion, they said).

Back to your point, though: I kinda have to agree with both you and Tridus that if they had this in the United States (which they probably do), it would be more suspicious than in Canada, because the U.S. government is already under suspision for conspiracy after conspiracy after conspiracy, and most people don't really trust them. Not that everyone trusts the Canadian goverment, but still...

Even drones can fly away
The queen is their slave

-----No! Away with the comment! There's no Queen in Canada either, which is why this is so lame! - SM_007 - 2000-05-17 00:00:00
