Civilized world

Resident provides his thoughts on the state of global affairs

As a regular reader of your publication, I was very pleased to see the editorial courage displayed by printing the submitted comments in article “Civilized World?”

In today’s often politically obsessed world, it is a rarity to encounter the blunt honesty which the writer of that submission offered, and it very much is the truth about what has been going on.

Conversely, it is also not an every day event that such honesty is given the attention it very much deserves as that is not taught in any school.

As you can surmise from my surname, I too am a new Canadian, even if only by 60 years of residence, and as such, I value the absence of the attempts to present the record of the past in anything but the very reliable truth.

As such, I very much appreciate the point blank honesty which illuminates this issue as well as it was presented and then made available to those who care to expand their horizons of understanding and comprehension.

Even Russia is more recently trying to reinvent its past history by softening the descriptions of past events, so the coming generations will not be left to wonder, what sort of mad men ran their past?

If any nation is to ever rise above its former mistakes, that degree of honesty “must survive” and live to separate the hogwash, from the verifiable truth.

Thank you for deciding to be a part of that hopefully ongoing process.
