Schizophrenia of a Country

the-great-divide1Browsing Chateau Heartiste today i noticed that he tweeted (Link Bellow) a rather funny yet factual article about BC Canada’s law changes for live in partners of 2 years, basically Common Law partners. (Link Bellow) Basically this would give the Common Law couple the obligation to divide their assets should they split up after 2 years of cohabitation.

Now i’m not one to usually post about Men’s rights, the MRA movement or anything really related to that. But i just had to chuckle to myself as just weeks before, on the opposite end of Canada, the province of Quebec stated that they would not pass law to obligate partners (men) to pay spousal support to their partners (women) should they break off their common law relationship.

Most of the rest of Canada jumped in an uproar accusing Quebec of being old fashioned and behind the times. This is funny as Quebec has always been the most leftist province in Canada sporting the most social help programs than any other in this country, inducing the highest income tax rate to support all these programs.

But you’ve got to think. Are they really behind the times? Or maybe resistance to the status quo is just what society needs to kick the feminazi agenda square in the proverbial balls. It seems governments around the world are passing ridiculous laws in order to follow the majority so they don’t look like they stand out and aren’t labelled rebels. We all know the nail that sticks out gets hammered, well in the political machine there is nothing truer. Not following the trend may hurt political relationships between governments, other leaders may be inclined to withhold support of other leaders who’s views may differ from their own policies, and so on and so forth.

I don’t side with Quebec very often… actually never, even when being French Canadian, but for this i gotta give a major Kudos to the Quebec Government.

Eventually they’ll fold, but resistance is always the start of a revolution.
