Yeah, but I hate snow and cold, Brent, and I'm blacklisted in the US. Ecuador's much less malarial and hurricaney than Central America or Malaysia, and much less civil-war-ey than Africa. I would have gone to New Zealand, but they wouldn't grant me a visa.

I'm too Scottish, actually - although the reason they gave was that they didn't want any more US-blacklisted Canadians. Bah.

I'm actually very happy in Ecuador, despite the sunburns; once I gain citizenship (about 8 months from now) I'll have border-free travel within the Andean Trade Zone (so basically, everywhere in Central and South America except Brazil, Suriname, and the Guayanas) - the same way the Eurozone works for you.

Yep, if you think that Eurozones work. Now we not only watch the Ukrainians smuggle the stuff, now we help them, 'cause we are in Schengen area.

I like NZ and Australia in general, but I'm quite repulsed with all their sharks and poisonous/deadly/dangerous animals.
Wouldn't wanna see that in here, 'cause we only have 2 kinds of snake and neither of them is that dangerous. Viper maybe, but I could walk with it's poison directly to the hospital in-room, so no prob there.

What's about the Scots living in Canada and blacklisted by the US not being able to go to NZ? Funny.
Why are you blacklisted anyway?

I'm blacklisted for what was explained to me as "revolutionary leanings" - basically, this menas that they think I'm a communist. Which is about 180 degrees from the truth, but oh well. As far as I can tell, it stems from a performance of Mother Courage and Her Children that I was involved in, and my membership with the New Democrat Party of Canada (which are actually left-leaning social-capitalists ideologically.) I've never been arrested or anything like that - in fact I have world-recognized awards for what I do (theatre design/scenography).

I am actually Canadian, just of Scots extraction. I think it was more the blacklisted thing that got me blocked. I would have taken a PhD there if they'd let me.

Their loss.
If you were blacklisted for (doesn't matter whether true or not) having an opinion and political ideas, that makes US the worst police state I've ever heard of. Hardly worth any other words.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm just saying that I'm not affiliated with any communist/communist-leaning parties. Sociologically, it's quite sound, but only if it's practiced in strict accordance with the rules laid out by Karl Marx. What Russia turned it into, and China as well, is totalitarian dictatorship. That, I am completely opposed to. This said, Canada's a more or less socialist country, and I have no problem with that. They're just not managing it very well is all. But yes, you're right. I was blacklisted for having ideas.

Exactly - but one has to be cautious that the system doesn't become a dictatorship, as it did in Russia under, oh, Stalin. Or China under leaders after Mao. Ecuador, for example, is best-governed and most prosperous under a communistic/socialistic military junta, much more so than under democratic rule.

Ou Russia and China have evolved. Much like USA. No-one actually knows now, who the hell rules those countries.

Exactly my point. Shadow government is more dangerous than no government at all.

OK. Tim to remove the posts. It's off topic. Maybe we could go PM if you want to discuss these issues. I'm a very good listener and even better retor.
