New Rules

The Game has new rules.

When the police and their government backers decide that our rights do not exist, no law in the land is worth its salt, because when our rights go, so too does the very foundation of our system of laws and justice. The Charter, under the Queen's signature, ceases to be worth the parchment it's written on.

But this works both ways. When our rights go, so too does the social contract that morally binds us to our system of laws and our deference toward the upholders and enforcers of those laws.

Left and right, across the spectrum, the police in Toronto have fucked themselves across a line.

Of course, we might have to take a Tasering or two or worse along the way - this is a very serious business - but on a moral level we've never been freer.
