It is now 70 years since the end of the Second World War (1939—1945). It is often referred to as the “Good War” or even the “Last Good War.” The U.S. soldiers who fought it have been called the “Greatest Generation.” Since wars are best seen as evils unless proven otherwise, it is worth asking why World War II has such a good reputation, and whether it deserves it.

July 1 is the day that people across Kanada get together to rally around a common theme-Kanada. But what does it really mean to celebrate this day?
Kanada is a country founded on the expansion of capitalism and domination.
It is based on genocide and the theft of this continent.
It is based on years of violence towards native peoples, but relies on imperialism to exist.

Solidarity and greetings to you all! Thank you for coming together to celebrate our respected comrade’s regained freedom, as well as the many transitions that have taken place this past year. First and foremost, I’d like to wish both Eric and Jenny every possible happiness, and to express how grateful I am to their dedicated and capable legal team. This kind of victory should be savored and taken to heart as a lesson in solidarity and perseverance.
