Is Euthanasia the New Normal?

Our society is going in the wrong direction by accepting euthanasia as normal. My novel, Quietus, is a near-futuristic tale in which a dictatorship uses euthanasia to control the population. What happens when too much power is placed in the hands of a few corrupt individual? Is this purely fiction or is it already happening in... Continue Reading →

Democracy to Dictatorship

The line between Democracy and Dictatorship is a thin one. I am often asked, in regards to my dystopian fiction, Quietus, "Where do you get your ideas? Were you thinking about what is going on south of the border, in the USA?" I don't have to look at the situation in the United States to... Continue Reading →

Free Speech?

We don’t have freedom of speech in Canada. Sure, it is protected as a fundamental right under Section 2 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms: The section affirms that everyone has the following freedoms: conscience and religion, thought, belief, opinion, and expression, including freedom of the press and other media, peaceful assembly and association....

The young woman chose life for her baby, rather than abortion. She ought to... Continue Reading →

What do Abortion Doctors Talk About?

I gave you names, though some thought it silly of me to do so. I’ll never forget you. I mourned for you then and still do.... Continue Reading →

Autonomy, Choosing One’s Death Day

Mother’s Day came and went. I was left thinking, of course, about my mom. She passed away from natural causes four years ago, at the age of ninety-two, a ripe old age by anyone’s standards. There were times, when I was teenager, I believed she would not live. Crippling depression in middle-age almost ended her... Continue Reading →

Some of Our Heros Promoted Eugenics

We usually associate the eugenics movement with Nazi racial hygiene – mass sterilizations, killing of homosexuals, handicapped people, gypsies and Jews.  Eugenics helped to shape Adolf Hitler’s view of the world. He was not the first, or last, to promote the idea of cleansing the human race. I came upon an interesting Youtube video that... Continue Reading →

Eugenics vs Social Biology

Would a government ever use euthanasia as a form of population control? The concept is not so outlandish. The problem governments face is convincing people to accept the idea that the elderly and handicapped are expendable. We needn’t choose between caring for defenseless people and caring for ourselves. The truth is, we can do both,... Continue Reading →
