Clinton Vs. Trump Is A False Choice

We shrugged as the media pumped Donald Trump into our homes 24/7. We could have demanded the same coverage for Bernie Sanders, but instead we guffawed at the spectacle. We aided the media's manipulation through apathy, and now we are feigning surprise that it has come down to these two horribly flawed people. Like the war in Iraq, we just swallowed the content and acted like the coverage was simply a reflection of the reality. It wasn't. It was an invention from the start.

No Country Is Truly 'Great' In A Global Society

Politicians know they cannot truly say, "We are the greatest." Instead, they say "let us be great again." I heard a politician say that in India this year. These words are echoed in many regions of the world -- it's not just Donald Trump. But which country was ever great in the greatest sense of the word?

Have You Met A Trump Lately?

One morning, I noticed a man behind me acting rather strange. This bloke was a fairly standard looking late middle aged man, probably in his 50's or early 60's, regulation belly protruding from his unfashionable shirt and bland baseball hat from some town he had once visited now covering his humpty dumpty head. And he was, quite clearly, a Trump.

Trade Doesn't Scare Populists Like Us, But Plutocracy Does

Trade is not something we are afraid of. It is not something we oppose. But we are afraid of the sorts of rules contained within trade agreements that establish more rights for corporations. Agreements like CETA and the TPP are pushing the world in the wrong direction.

Solidarity Between Minorities Is The Only Way To Beat Racism

When stigma is attached to a community, there appear fewer persons ready to come to the defence of the targeted group. In part, members of other communities see such support as a partisan issue. Others fear that such defence will result in their being associated with the group that is deemed unpopular.

We've Heard Ezra Levant's Pipeline Rhetoric Before – From Trump

Ezra Levant is angry with the NO delivered to Energy East from the 82 mayors of Montreal's Urban Community to TransCanada Pipelines last January, and is accusing Mayor Coderre of favouring "Shariah" petroleum by saying NO to the "ethical" petroleum of Canada. But there is an important major flaw in Mr. Levant's argument.

If you think of earth as a giant and complicated neighbourhood of neighbourhoods, it might be said that the Trumpification we are now witnessing in the States doesn't really have anything to do with Trump himself. He is not the cause. He is the opportunistic benefactor. Let's call him dystopia Donald. He's relatively new to this area. But he's still affecting our neighbours to the south, and we have a duty to at least have a chat with them.

Clinton Unfairly Spared Media Scrutiny For Looming Indictments

James Di Fiore | Posted 07.04.2016 | Canada Politics

The political ether is currently laced with a zombie-inspired conventional wisdom that this entire debacle is ultimately meaningless, a manufactured scandal concocted by Clinton's political enemies. But once you delve deep into the facts of the case you begin to see why this investigation was never arbitrary.

Let's Celebrate Immigrants This Canada Day

Anti-immigrant xenophobia is usually tied to nationalism, and nationalism tends to spike during independence celebrations. So here's something to think about this Canada Day: everyone in this colonized land that is not First Nations or Inuit is an immigrant. I'm fourth generation myself. Three of my four grandparents were born here. My wife's relatives immigrated to North America from Denmark and Scotland. Every single other citizen that is not indigenous immigrated here, too, be it from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, South America or wherever else.

U.K. citizens may believe that they will have an easier time moving to Canada than the Americans. This is quite understandable since Canada shares so many things with the U.K. However, U.K. citizens will be disappointed to learn that none of this makes it any easier for them to move to Canada.

To those politicians today with the power to compel people to your will with fear and anti-immigration sentiment -- stop blaming immigrants for neoliberal policies that relentlessly concentrate wealth at the top while leaving the majority with weakened social programs, poverty, uncertainty and fear.
