Epsilon-Minus Semi-Morons

Aldous Huxley:

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored".

Which seems an awfully good thing when you consider the apparent inability of WhoIsRunningTheJoint to grasp them.

Ezra reports on the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal's ruling that some guy whose condo board won't let him keep a dog deserves twelve thousand dollars in damages. Why? Because he might go blind and he wants to keep his dog.

His is dog is not a seeing eye dog. People with working eyes don't get to keep ordinary dogs there either.

But he might go blind.

And maybe he might train his dog first.

Or something. It doesn't even matter to these people.

As Canada swirls around the drain, Right Thinking people are apt to compare our situation to Huxley's Brave New World.

That's wrong.

The Brave New World had Alpha-Plus World Controllers. Here, we have the Epsilon-Minus Semi-Morons in control.

Be concerned.
