Gerry Dionne: An Elegy to a Journeyman

Earlier this month, the curtain fell on a man of irreplicable passion, small snippets of wisdom, and love for humanity. Gerry Dionne, a man I’ve known for the better part of two decades, played out his swan song on December 4, 2021. Gerry, the father of my friend JR, was always a bit culturally aloof in our small conservative town in suburban North Carolina. Here was this elder New England liberal, also with French Canadian heritage, who played guitar, listened to classical music, intimately knew the grapes of the wines he drank, and who spent evenings flipping through aged books […]

Uncovering the Modern Conspiracy Mindset | Devolution Review

Today I received a work email from someone who said he had vital info. I dialed him back with intrigue. It turns out he’s an older gentleman living in Florida who had some thoughts on the COVID vaccine. He needed someone to hear him out. Luckily for me, he said he also moonlights for the FBI and DEA and has been witness to shenanigans of a high order. Let the fun begin, I thought. To tell that story, he explained parts of the voting scam perpetrated by the Democrats (unmarked vans and triple-counted ballots), the false flag event at the […]

Every few years in the world of politics, there begins a new push to reach out to young people, and with good reason. In the 2019 federal election, the 9.5 million millennials in Canada will make up the largest single voting bloc. Whether they will come out and vote to let their voice be heard, however, is another question. But that said, if they do come out and vote, they will be a force to be reckoned with. Young people are some of the first to feel effects of government policies, whether it be the minimum wage, education reform, or […]

Stefan Zweig’s Dream of Europe: What has been achieved?

On Nov. 27, 1881, in Vienna, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, one of the world’s greatest writers was born as a gift to humanity. His name was Stefan Zweig. He was a world-renowned celebrity, earning the distinction of being one of the most translated authors of the first half of the 20th century. Even in the 21st Century, his works continue to resonate and inspire a new generation. The 2014 film Grand Budapest Hotel, written and directed by Wes Anderson, brought Zweig’s stories to the screen, drawing from novellas such as Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman, […]

What of Our Grand Experiment?

By Yaël Ossowski | Devolution Review The fate of Europe seems forever in flux. We need to rethink its foundations. Unbeknownst to millions of ordinary European citizens, they’ve participated in a grand experiment for the past two decades. It’s the modern version of an imperial territorial zone, customs union, and free travel zone—all rolled into one. For its size and scale, it’s truly unprecedented in history. The ‘permission slips’ for conducting this grand experiment were tacitly distributed among nation-states and exchanged between government bureaus. Wherever the public got too curious, a vote was reluctantly held—a general plebiscite—which avoided the complexity […]
