Sympathy for Stephen Harper

What happens when government policy threatens the security of Canadians - like, say veterans, or aboriginals, or racialized youth?  What happens when targeted groups stand up for themselves in protest, possibly blocking highways and the like to ensure they have an impact and are heard?
Such acts of self-advocacy certainly interfere with the government's ability to maintain stability.  But then, so was a singular dependence on oil, but that's off-message.
This is the message:
A great evil is indeed descending over our world.  It's nothing new.  In fact, we know exactly what this evil looks like.
Wonder whether Harper likes the Rolling Stones?
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste

Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste
