Weve all wrestled with questions like these, whether were shouting at a relative across the dinner table, quarreling with old classmates on social media, or chatting late into the night with friends. We’ve all wrestled with questions like these, whether we’re shouting at a relative across the dinner table, quarreling with old classmates on social media, or chatting late into the night with friends.

The author will drive profit through her sloppy and intellectually dishonest labour for years to come. Arianne discussed her book in the Chowen Lecture Theatre before reading an excerpt and signing copies of the book afterwards for attendees. We know there are thousands of National readers who want to debate, argue and go back and forth in the comments section of our stories. And all of us, the author urges, must become “poverty abolitionists…refusing to live as unwitting enemies of the poor.It is important that we continue to promote these adverts as our local businesses need as much support as possible during these challenging times. While I found myself intrigued and interested in Arianne Shahvisi’s writing s about these issues, I found myself questioning her thoughts on many of these items. Shahvisi revels in provocation and yet worries about being cancelled herself, given her strong opinions. This book is chock-full of important and compelling information that everybody should know about discrimination and oppression. This is a fascinating, pragmatic resource for those who want to make a difference but don’t know where to start.

Too often I have been sidetracked and taken aback with 'Whataboutery" and now I can name it and be better equipped to deal with it. A better view is that we should as much as possible see our common humanity - in all humans; attempt to treat all people fairly and with respect; know that while it is difficult to understand each other, it is never impossible, no matter what our race, colour or creed. Desmond, who grew up in modest circumstances and suffered poverty in young adulthood, points to the deleterious effects of being poor—among countless others, the precarity of health care and housing (with no meaningful controls on rent), lack of transportation, the constant threat of losing one’s job due to illness, and the need to care for dependent children.

Instead it is the dogmatic assertion of a dated ideology and of little use to anyone wishing to take a fresh look at issues or consider others’ views in a charitable light. The binary, low-res lens that shows only "right" and "wrong": what a beautiful metaphor to describe polarization that hinders us to find a good enough pathway (v/o navigation) in our complex world. But living in echo chambers blunts our thinking, and if we can’t persuade others, we have little hope of collectively bringing about change.
