Peace and Self-Determination for Ukraine

I have profound respect for Ukraine’s courageous President Volodymyr Zylenskyy.

At first, Ukraine’s battle to fend off Russia’s totalitarian regime and imperial forces looked like a genocidal slaughter waiting to happen and a sure defeat. Yet, President Zylenskyy dug in his heels and stood up for this great and strategically important nation — where 99% of politicians and state leaders might have deserted their posts, and left the citizens and army to fend for themselves. KUDOS to President Zylenskyy and Ukraine’s brave people!!!!!!!

Canada, itself, is comprised of many people of Ukrainian heritage (I’ve been blessed to know a few). And the Canadian prairies — the ‘breadbasket’ of the nation — would not be what it is without the early settlements of Ukrainians. Likewise, Canadian “culture, the economy, politics and sports,” etc, would be poorer without people of Ukrainian ancestry: https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/ukrainian-canadians.

(NOTE: I became aware of a soldier / fighter / warrior bent to my own nature in the mid-1990s (age 27), which became increasingly pronounced as various, sometimes-intense, experiences and forces of oppression or trauma ensued (particularly between 1997 to 2005). As chaotic or seemingly destructive as I may have become, at times, I nevertheless applaud and salute those who fight for important causes, like freedom and democracy, socio-environmental-economic restoration / healing / justice, quality healthcare and education, and so on.

The global crises of ecological degradation and social injustice are mutually reinforcing products of the same flawed systems. …[Change] requires a critical examination of the values and narratives which underlie systems of oppression and power. We argue for the moral necessity of a socially just approach to the ecological crisis.

Economic justice is the idea that the economy will be more successful if it is fairer, and that prosperity and justice go hand-in-hand rather than in opposition to one another. The goal is to create opportunities for all to thrive.
