Columnists

Ideological battles over the elimination of scorekeeping in youth soccer

Canadian soccer bodies are phasing in a program to eliminate scorekeeping and standings for under-12 leagues. The spontaneous outrage combusted on schedule. Some was rote, from columnists at the Sun chain with deadlines to meet and clichés at hand: e.g., "this lefty everybody-is-equal garbage." Some came from parents who seem truly anguished that their kids may enter later life unprepared for how harsh and nasty it can be.

Kathryn Blaze Carlson at the National Post helpfully counterposed two putative authorities. One thinks humans are a hierarchal species, and "genetically programmed to compete." The other, "a renowned proponent of co-operation over competition," said: "We compete because we're raised that way, not because we were born that way."

Teaching the ABCs for activists to be

A is for Activist

by Innosanto Nagara
(Kupu-Kupu Press,
2012;
$15.00)

Change the conversation, support rabble.ca today.

A is for Activist.

B is for banner, bobbing in the sky.

It’s pretty clear from page one that this is no Cat in the Hat. Billed as a book for the children of the 99%, A is for Activist is the radical vision of Innosanto (Inno) Nagara, a graphic designer and social justice activist from Oakland, California.

Over the past 10 years Peace Theatre has provided arts-based, peace-building programming to 10,000 at-risk children and youth in Toronto  but on the eve of what should be a celebration of our accomplishments, the organization is in danger of closing its doors.

Don't let Peace Theatre fall down the rabbit hole. Come and experience the imaginative universe that Peace Theatre creates for Toronto's young people on a daily basis.  Enjoy the musical stylings of the Joe Sealy and Paul Novotny duo. Sip on a signature cocktail (Mad Hatter Spiked Iced Tea anyone?) and munch on some mini culinary delights.

Join us as we paint the roses red!

Tickets are $50 when purchased online or by phone.
