    Justin Trudeau with his little namesake

    While Americans are getting more stone hearted and embracing a coarser, more openly vulgar, and less refined culture, busy shuttering their doors and windows, the Canadians have not forgotten their sense of humanity. Here are a Syrian refugee family who escaped the war in their country and was greeted in Canada with open arms. In gratitude, they named their son Justin Trudeau. It's good to know not everyone is forgetting their very humanity.

    President Trudeau met with the family and greeted his little namesake, Justin Trudeau Adam Bilal.

    No. I distrust politicians that sell the human touch.

    Sometimes brute military force is the required answer to an immediate acute situation involving warring cultures.

    But in the long run, the winning hand in America has always been assimilation. Idea and ideology have always prevailed over brute force in the end, and affirmed our greatness. As of late, it seems Canada may understand this better than America.

    Certainly not the ones that go for emotional populism.

    Actually, I think that Canada understands that they needn't invest in international security as long as someone else secures it. It is a widely Global Public Good for which exclusivity is almost not possible. So free riding is the thrifty way to go as long as you are sure that you can avoid sanctions. Usually countries that go down that rout hide their free ride in a fluff of moralism and emotional propaganda that is cheaper than paying for the Public Good.
