Electoral Reform 2 of 6
The NDP/Green collaboration is trying to sell the claim that changing the electoral process is about improving the electoral system…
….although they have not provided any facts or evidence to support their assertion. Instead, to accomplish this assumed ‘improvement’ they are rushing into changing how we elect politicians and governments with a process mind boggling in its slipshod recklessness.
The May 30, 2018 Abbotsford News editorial “New Weapons Needed” about the continuing death toll taken by fentanyl brought to mind the words “makes clear the writer is part of the conforming majority, complacently adjusted to accepting what society believes – knows for sure – about drug use and related issues.
The problem…….is that what is accepted as known for sure is wrong.
The bold words are taken verbatim from a commentary on the October 31, 2017 Abbotsford News editorial on drug overdose deaths.
At some point Sunday afternoon person [or persons] unknown slunk onto the property of a local charitable organization and ‘donated’ their rejectamenta, dumping it beside a dumpster.
It was Sunday, the building was clearly closed and the ‘generous’ Abbotsford citizen(s) drove past two signs, one stating donations were only accepted during the hours donation drop-off is open [the hours were specified] and one stating that donation drop-off was closed.
Even if the couch, love seat and chair had not been rubbish when generously bestowed beside the charity’s dumpster, sitting overnight in the rain, wet and cold would ensure it was trashed come Monday morning.
Commenting on the call by scientists, whose review of the brain activity/imaging data collected in all studies of the physical functioning of the brain disclosed the existence of individuals who functioned as ‘dumb nodes’, for governments and individuals to pursue behaviours that promote thinking and provide immunization against the effect of ‘dumb nodes’ the Association of Thought Enforcement Agencies stated that, in light of the stress of living in today’s world, a reduction in brain activity with a commensurate reduction in thought leading to stress reduction from the non-thought of ‘don’t worry, be happy’ is not something to be cavalierly dismissed and avoided as called for by scientists.
Citing the scientists failure to consider the benefits of stress reduction, the Association called for governments and individuals not to be hasty in pursuing thinking with its increase in stress, but to wait until the benefits of the existence of ‘dumb nodes’ and decreased brain activity could be assessed.

Advances in imaging technology now allow scientists and researchers to observe the brain functioning in real time. This has allowed scientists and researchers to have test subjects read, do mathematics, listen to music etc. and observe what part or parts of the brain are used in performing specific tasks.
Scientists announced today that a review of the mass of data collected on the functioning of the human brain in recent years has revealed the existence of individuals who, when interacted with, result in a reduction of brain activity in anyone interacting with these individuals.
