JMB BS: how can you be other than an extremist? (135* d) RE: BS: how can you be other than an extremist? 11 Jan 18


I once stated on my opinion on a politics page in which I indicated that I think Canada should be a republic rather than a constitutional monarchy. There was someone who was a generation ahead of me who was an extremist for the monarchy. They totally disregarded everything I said and didn't reply appropriately, stating that it wasn't worth commenting on and that my opinion didn't matter. They said that I am against authority, law and order and that I was irrational and supported everything that was evil in the world. I thought that Canada was supposed to be a democracy and supported equality and social justice, as well as
support for separation of church and state; and a monarchy even though it's a figurehead doesn't really represent these values to me. There is also the amount of money and publicity that goes into the royals when there are countless people who are homeless or in deep levels of poverty and there isn't enough money nor media coverage going towards them in my opinion. In fact, this upcoming royal wedding has them wanting to clear out the homeless people from the streets, because it is an eyesore and makes the royals look bad.
