Everybody, Rob Cairns here, I’m the CEO founder and chief creator of Mason ideas, his stunning digital market.
want to weigh in on something that I really, really think we need to weigh in on. And that’s not changing history. I’m sure this podcast will cause all kinds of controversy. And that’s fine by me, frankly, because I think things are going a little too far. So let’s sit back, relax, and enjoy the podcast.
Hey, Rob Cairns here. So the state of the world has been, frankly, really tough the last four or five months, in fact, COVID-19. We’ve had race riots in the US. We’ve had issues with police brutality, and it goes on. But, and I mean, a big but one of the things we’ve got to be very, very careful off in all this, is we don’t change the history of the world, or tried to change the history of the world. And what do you mean by that? So before we go there, I want to say I hope our by staying safe at home and taking care of themselves and their loved ones. It’s a big issue and COVID scary, and I get that. But let’s stop living in fear and do what we need to do that for another podcast. But frankly, the race riots in the US. Yes, police brutality has been a big, big deal. And, you know, racism is a big problem. There’s just no question. But we can’t change history. And we can’t keep blaming people from 203 100 years ago, for what they did that what we should be doing is accepting it. And moving on. And using it as a learning opportunity, an opportunity to say, you know, this person didn’t do this, right. But this is how we can fix it in a current time. That is a big deal. And that’s something to think about. Frankly, I’m not a big fan of tearing down historical statues, people like Christopher Columbus, George Washington, sir john, a MacDonald in Canada. And let me tell you why. They actually did a lot of good. And one of the issues surrounding these three people were issues that were acceptable in society that at that time, if you change society’s acceptance of certain things, then you should adjust accordingly. We need to work at some what some of these people have done. Without Christopher Columbus, North America wouldn’t be discovered. Without sir john a MacDonald, the first prime minister in Canada, you would not have a country. And that’s something we really got to think about real hard and take to effect. And going out and protesting and defacing statues, and then just saying, that’s my right to experience. That’s where right to expression is wrong. And frankly, if I went and defaced your house and claimed it was my right expression, you could pretty upset at me. Why is the statue any different? Why is a public monument any different? There was an incident in Toronto on a weekend where three protesters were arrested, and everybody’s claiming they should be released. Frankly, no, they shouldn’t we should sit in jail. As far as I’m concerned. They deface statues, public property. They didn’t govern themselves in the right manner. Yes, everybody has a right to protest. But that doesn’t mean the right to destroy. And frankly, it needs to stop now. And if they if you want to get things done, it has to be a collaborative effort, not just to go out and protest and do what I call a dump and run. That doesn’t work. And frankly, I’m no more sympathetic to those protesters than I was a couple days ago. I really just don’t care. And the reason I don’t care is because they acted in a manner that was 100% on acceptable towards society. Society has rules. society needs police to enforce those rules.
defunding The police is not the answer. The answer is to get out there and change the way police forces deal with things to collaborate more in your communities. If you want to hear more about that, go listen to my last podcast with Scott Mills, and what we talked about there and make collaboration really important, and let’s, let’s help these committees. But getting rid of and defunding police forces isn’t the answer here. And by the way, folks, mental health budget doesn’t come from the policing budget comes out in the health care budget. So we need to take that into account as well. So what I’m suggesting here, is let’s take all the second and fix the problems. And let’s stop trying to change where the world has been. But we can change the way the world is going. So let’s work on that together. And that would be the most important thing.
