Conversation I Had At The Solstice

Me: Are you transhumanist?

Cishumanist: No. I don’t think people should be living forever.

Me: Why not?

Her: Because then all the evil people in the world would live forever and the world would fill up with terrible people.

Me: So, to avoid that, we have to let all the evil people grow old and die? That would be just?

Her: Yes.

[we get distracted and discuss the bonfire for a bit]

Me: What’s your opinion on the death penalty?

Her: I am very, very opposed. The government shouldn’t be allowed to just kill people like that. It’s tyrannical. I mean, what if they make a mistake? Then an innocent person might be executed. I’d rather a thousand murders not be executed than let one innocent person be executed.

Me: Sure. Isn’t it tragic every time an innocent person is killed?

Her: Yes!

Me: However, something about all this feels a bit off. You say that when the government executes an innocent person, it’s a great tragedy. It’s tyranny. And yet, when death doesn’t discriminate, and the reaper executes everyone - sinners, saints, and jaywalkers - it’s justice.

IRL: World MasterCard Fashion Week FW15

It’s currently Fashion Week in Toronto. While I used to heavily attend it a few years ago when I used to shoot the shows from inside the photographer’s pit or do social media from the press section, these days I may go a day or two as a guest if I attend the season at all. Yesterday was Day 3 of the shows and I stopped by the tents to take in a few shows by Triarchy, Malorie Urbanovitch, Klaxon Howl and my favorite of the night, Haley Elsaesser.
