A Canadian Abroad II

While I'm able to remove myself from domestic politics a little bit, international affairs is tough to avoid at a place like The LSE. The expats feel our embarrassment at the UN keenly. We're attending a school where the international leaders of my generation are being trained, and the simple fact of the matter is that my country is no longer a leader. You don't have to be a flag-waving nationalist to grasp the importance of the unfortunate reality that your country just doesn't matter anymore.
