Canada’s Secret History: Chapter One

Everyone talks about how Canada is such a “chill” or “cool” country.

We are laid back. We don’t make a fuss about anything. We aren’t wound tight like our neighbors in the States. The United States of America, the trigger happy freedom fighters of the world, think that they have a handle on what is happening in the world. They assume that they are in control or have a handle on the issues with their different government institutions. They have the FBI, the CIA, the NSA and another dozen letter groups doing everything that they can to protect and fight whatever enemy they chose.

The problem is they aren’t effective. These agencies don’t get the job done. Everyone knows about them. Everyone knows what to look for, or who to look for. This is largely because of Hollywood and the, unfortunately, accurate portrayal of its inner workings. And with these portrayals come the reality of how inept and ill-suited to the world issues these agencies are. The FBI, CIA, or NSA aren’t actually doing anything productive. They aren’t policing a single thing.

The people that actually are policing the world are the “chill” and “cool” ones. Continue reading “Canada’s Secret History: Chapter One”

A Historic Class Drop

School

“The less you know about this, the better. Just drop the subject…”

Wilhelm slumped in his seat. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing.

“…and pick a different class.”

All Wilhelm had wanted was to take the intro to political sciences class in his senior year of high school, and now had to listen to his guidance counselor shut him down. It was a critical part of his 5 year plan. Take this class, graduate with honors, get an internship at the governor’s office, work his way up through the ranks until he got a paid job working with one of the most powerful men in the country. In the 15 to 20 year plan, there was a transition from governor’s aid to governor himself, but that wasn’t going to be possible now.

“So, what class do you want? Woodworking, Native American History, Cosmetology, or Advanced Arch welding?”

Why couldn’t he take Intro to Political Science?

“Wilhelm?”

“Uhh, sorry Ms. Cranthorn. Why can’t I take the class? Is it full?”

“No, it’s not, but I can’t let you take it.”

“But why? I need…”

Mr. Cranthorn barked, “It’s because I know something you don’t know. You can’t take that class.”

The One-Eyed King

Castle

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

I thought it was a saying. A clever way of saying that a little knowledge or power, a small advantage over everyone else, would make the world of difference. It could be the game changer, between a serf or a king.

I never thought it was part of a country’s history. Continue reading “The One-Eyed King”

A Time of Cleansing..Extended Version

“Let me get this straight. You are saying that the world ends everyday at 3:07 am PST because reality is constantly being rewritten by people going back in time to kill Hitler?”

“It isn’t always Hitler, but yeah.”

I shook my head with disbelief. Time travel. People going back to kill Hitler. But not always Hitler, so who else did they assassinate? And why was my best friend only telling me this now? Or why tell me at all?

“Brandon, I don’t understand. You need to explain this to me.” Continue reading “A Time of Cleansing..Extended Version”
