Adventures with the Canadian State Apparatus | Clarissa’s Blog
So, it’s not the ideological state apparatus, anyway. When I first migrated, I was horrified at how little was available to the average citizen. You couldn’t camp anywhere you wanted to, you had to wear seatbelts and have headrests installed in your car, you had to allow strangers to cross your lawn, you were not expected to defend your private space (or have it respected) in a park… The most telling sign was that when people travelled by car through the wilderness areas, they put their radios on full blast — commercial radio drowning out any natural vibes.
That is why I say I am not averse to men being militarized — or even large sectors of the population, male and female. It would free up the mind and make people stop thinking in such narrow terms.
