I’m sorry for the rant, but I truly felt that much of what Foucault wrote could be applied to our own society today, and that society has become less humanistic and more corporate.
I also think its fascinating to consider how although the world today is incredibly technologically advanced and filled with highly intelligent human beings, many people would probably secretly admit that they aren’t especially happy or that they feel like they’re missing something.
Does it simply imply the finest socio-economic prospects for Canadians, or an underlying subtext that can be genealogically traced back to Canada’s racial and environmental history?
Does “best interests” also include being transparently fair to the peoples and their environments, or does it precede threatening environmental justice for the sake of economic prosperity?

more The Old English Beowulf’s Grendel's Mother has been reimagined in comic books as an undocile body requiring discipline.I believe that these trends are mainly due to the rise in objectivity and lack of emotion that now permeates society, and that was described in Foucault’s writing.As stated in “Docile Bodies,” man has become more of a machine than a person.A comic book adaptation by Enrico Basari originally appeared in serial form from October 5, 1940-January 25, 1941 and was featured in Il Vittorioso, a Catholic youth publication that attempted to go beyond mere Fascist propaganda for young people.This Grendel's Mother is realized within the context of a fascist ideology burdened by racist beliefs stemming from a medieval past, as seen in the pictures rendered by a German-born illustrator with a suspect political past of his own.Most importantly, what do major decisions like the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion say about Canada’s (specifically British Columbia’s) past, and what does it spell for the wellness of Canada’s future?On the year of Canada’s 150th year of independence, this paper will look into the past and analyze the BC Centennial Committee’s From Wilderness to Wonderland to determine how the “abundance” of British Columbia’s environment has been asserted and emphasized in national consciousness as a way to attain specific interests and, in doing so, has largely ignored the rights and well-beings of the First Nations communities and their environment.In Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s speech to announce his cabinet’s approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, he stressed the decision as one that was done in the “best interests” of Canada. more In Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s speech to announce his cabinet’s approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, he stressed the decision as one that was done in the “best interests” of Canada.When Trudeau mentioned “best interests” – what does it truly mean?Classes such as English and History are considered a waste of time, whereas a lab science or a math course is considered as of the utmost importance.Visual literacy has gone up, while communication skills have fallen drastically.
