Creating Utopia The Podcast

A Canadian Perspective on the Gun Debate, A Response to Colion Noir

August 21, 2018

There are people advocating for 0 tolerance of guns, no guns whatsoever, who are exceptional human beings – who make sense, even if their goals are more Utopian than I would strive for today. There are also people who advocate the absolute freedom to bear arms, who are exceptional human beings – they also make sense, and from my perspective their view of reality is more Dystopian than I would be willing to concede. But what's important to see, is that there are people, on both sides of this debate, who want the best for themselves, their country, their families, communities and the world. They just have very different starting places, and/or finish lines, in terms of how we actually make things better. We need to recognize we have allies on the other side of the aisle, and work with them to find a solution that will solve the root issues affecting our society today.
