RE: First Amendment No Big Deal, Students Say
Not sure how it works in your parts, but here the Provincial gov't sets the cirriculum. Over the years they have run with the moronic neo-con "back to basics" garbage that has eliminated "frills" like social action, creative thinking, music, phys ed, and so on. Instead of pulling history apart, back-to-basics is about dates and names. Social Action is replaced with Citizenship, meaning you learn not to complain. The barely-elected dictator is always right. And they're shown the result. Dare to protest and we'll gas and beat you right before arresting you and holding you without cause.
It's called a "return to traditional values" and other things to make you think we're returning to the loving 1950's.
I'm really trying to see things from your perspective, but I'm having trouble getting my head up my ass
