What We've Learned Since 9/11

...not much.

It's been ten years and we're still afraid of our next door neighbours.
We (Canadians and the Western World as a whole) are more xenophobic than ever.
We hate the unknown and the Other.
Your name and colour can get you kicked off of a plane (if you're even allowed to get on one).
We still see an entire religion as terrorists.
Still dropping bombs on babies.
Still electing warmongers, bigots, and plain old idiots feeding fear to the masses (a al Harper). 

It's ten years later and minus Facebook and Youtube and Obama, it might as well be 2002.
