Every Canadian politician is an ignorant bigot.
Every Canadian politician supported the illegal abduction of Meng Wanzhou.
Every Canadian politician supported the anti-China propaganda nonsense about Uyghur genocide, Uyghur forced labour, and Uyghur concentration camps.
By these actions, Canada destroyed our long-standing good relationship with China for no reason at…
I recently read a couple of articles reviewing why Smalltalk “died”:
This got me thinking. Why can’t Smalltalk be revived? For the most part, Smalltalk’s weaknesses have been addressed today.
Last night, I had a premonition in my sleep that I was going to get brain cancer. It literally scared me awake.
And do you know what was the first thought on my mind? Not that I was going to leave my friends and family behind. Not that I wouldn’t survive to the average Canadian life expectancy of 80 years (for men). Not that I would miss the upcoming Star Trek series with Michelle Yeoh (“Section 31”).
No, my first thought was whether I would live long enough to shepherd next summer’s Camp Smalltalk Supreme event to success. If I die without seeing this through, I’ll never be able to live with myself.
So, pray to whatever god you believe in that I don’t get brain cancer, please.
I have the green light to proceed with Camp Smalltalk Supreme, the 2022 50th anniversary edition of Camp Smalltalk.
It’s scheduled for June 10–12, 2022 at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.
I’ve confirmed Adele Goldberg, Dan Ingalls, and Kent Beck as keynote speakers for this very special event.
Here is the official website: https://campsmalltalksupreme.wordpress.com/.
Here is the promo video:
Here is the GoFundMe campaign: https://gofund.me/225341e3. I’m also seeking corporate sponsorship.
I hope many people will attend this event. It should be a blast.
I am totally ashamed to be Canadian. Our government is comprised of ignorant fools.
There is no Uighur genocide. If these idiot politicians bothered to visit Xinjiang, they could see the truth for themselves.
They could see Uighur culture flourishing. They could see mosques everywhere and Uighur street signs everywhere…
Insightful documentary. However, I worry that it may exacerbate anti-China sentiments and encourage scapegoating for the pandemic.
Did China make mistakes? Undoubtedly. Did Western countries make mistakes? Unquestionably. Everybody made mistakes during this crisis.
However, the mistakes made by the West were far more costly. By the end of…
Rachel Chiu of the Cato Institute published the following opinion piece at USA Today: My grandmother stood up to the Chinese Communist Party. President Joe Biden should too.
I felt compelled to dispel the many misleading ideas in the piece, which seems rather detached from current reality.
First, Ms. Chiu…
Everybody must be wondering why Asian countries did so much better than Western countries in managing the COVID crisis. Is the explanation rooted in politics or culture or race or bad luck or something else altogether? This is what we’re going to find out.
