Post-Olympics Public Nationalism

I denounce Olympics but I value the social cohesion and public space enjoyment effected by tonight's Canadian success. I went to Yonge & Dundas to bask in the crowds. It was really fun to see everyone getting together like that. I just wish it was about something less selfish.


  1. I looked but didn't see you there.
    I don't know how many strangers I gave "high-fives" to tonight, but it was a lot. It was really fun, I've never seen such a big (and long-lasting!) celebration in Toronto before.

  2. I'm pretty wary of people being united over something so blatantly nationalistic. I don't know that I value this kind of thing.
