a great day, today

Toronto, 2017.06.09

The Boy and I spent much of the day together - first fishing, then a jaunt downtown. It was another fruitless day on the water unfortunately, but we had a great time in the cool sun with virtually the whole place to ourselves. We'd made haircut appointments downtown mid-afternoon, so we made a trip of it. I like to show him about the city's center and hope that he'll become familiar with it before he turns into one of those teens who can only gawk (as I was).

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

-Hermann Goering
