Re: Be very afraid: Stephen Harper is inventing a new CanadaDec 17th, 2011
Harper is an intellectual pygmy. His mind is bent around the reductive logic of Free Markets. He is deaf and blind to experience, being driven by an internal logic to which he grasps as theological purity.. having neither the imagination nor objective comprehension to deviate from it. That is fundamentally where his restructuring of Canada lies, in the deconstruction of Canada's economic integrity and sovereignty.. and that is his prime goal. He is one of a line of 3 quisling PMs in this regard, Mulroney, Chretien and Harper.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
He doesn't really care about issues of culture or environment. He uses them to insulate his economic agenda. But to the extent that he is rolling back the nonsense of multiculturism, and the fraud of AGW that has scarred the country in the last four decades.. he is merely trying to placate a potential rebellion in his own caucus.. by throwing them crumbs of social conservatism.
He knows that the Conservative Party comprises a shotgun wedding of the Old PC Party and the Reform Party. It is the Reform Party, radically internationalist and libertarian that wields power, but it is a tension filled wedding, that will explode at some point. The PC party is founded on John A.'s nationalist and dirigist policies. Harper has got his finger stuck in the hole of Conservative Party's ship of state.. but its a pretty fragile construct.
