There hasn’t been a war in Canada since we kicked America’s ass in the War of 1812. We’re not used to; we can’t understand the concept of our streets and cities becoming battlefields. Some demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri think that their police force is worse than ISIS.
It’s hard to wrap your head around mass slaughter, rape and beheadings. It’s hard to understand what evil is.
