Since Canada and history have been brought up I thought I would muse about a moment of Canadian history.
As we all know the talk of inequality of income is all the rage. Many folks here, in the MSM, fringe media, and IRL talk about how there is a pending revolution due to it. Many of these same folks look back fondly on the 1960s due to their perceived union strength and the stability (and implied happiness) of the middle class. Well, enter Paul Chartier. Here's his wiki liink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Joseph_Chartier
Paul Joseph Chartier (1921-May 18, 1966) was a Canadian man who died when a bomb he was preparing exploded in a washroom of the Parliament of Canada. It is believed that he was preparing to bomb the House of Commons.
Born in rural Alberta to parents who owned a small hotel, Chartier became a trucker at age 20. However, in 1960 he ran into financial trouble and was forced to declare bankruptcy and sell his truck. He was also investigated for fraud and his marriage failed. Moving to Toronto, he settled in a rooming house on Major Street.
After his death, police found a number of writings and letters earlier sent to newspapers were uncovered. He stated that because of government actions, no one could afford to live and that politicians were rich and greedy. He attacked politicians and homosexuals in his writings. He wrote that his plan was to "exterminate as many members as possible," and that he was prepared to die in the process. He declared his desire to become Prime Minister of Canada, and stated that he would appoint Toronto alderman June Marks as his Vice President.
Revolution against the "rich and greedy" you say?
