I’m taking a blogging break, so I won’t be reading blogs or posting here for the next couple weeks.

Also, for whoever asked me which of Canada and the US are more reactionary friendly: Canada is much more receptive to monarchy than the US, but beyond that it is much the same, although, in Canada, opposition is generally more subdued: you are less likely to have an online mob try to destroy your life. On the other hand, “hate” speech is punishable in Canada, so certain expressions of reaction may wind up in court.
