Things you can’t say post-Bill C 51

Bill C-51 is now law:
I guess I am now going to have to muzzle myself and not talk about the root causes of terrorism: The military industrial complexes of the West who kill untold thousands of “collateral” children. The mega-corps who make massive money getting “reconstruction” contracts after the West’s militaries “free” brown people from their dictators. How al Queda and ISIS etc are creatures initially funded by the West. The continuing oppression of the West’s imperialism and colonialism leading to massive death, child slave labor, the oppression of women and the feminization of labor. The massive resurgence of surveillance of all of us to reassure the varies oligarchies that rule our “democracies.” According to the West it is none of those things; for the West it is a bunch of civilizationally deficient brown people who we have to fear. But who created the conditions that forced these folks into the corner of “terrorism”? You guessed it, we did.
