It doesn’t pay to pay no attention. Sometimes those of us do can slip up. Japhy Wilson’s book “Jeffrey Sachs: The Strange Case of Dr Shock And Mr Aid” is chock full of useful information, but the book suffers from what I believe is a faulty idea. Japhy is clever enough to package it well enough, but I don’t buy – and neither does the unrepentant Sachs – that Sachs doesn’t know what neoliberalism is about. I don’t believe that he believes it’s natural. He’s not stupid. What he is is a cold warrior moving through different ‘departments’ within the corporatocracy, which results in his having to adjust his pro-neoliberal language only. Continue reading
Arthur C. Clarke obviously chose (for that’s what it is) to disbelieve in an actual Creator. But this cold reality – Childhood’s End – he dredges up would make one prefer a Creator God. Clarke is part of the majority who don’t want to believe in an actual Creator. Why would anyone want to believe in a God of love who explicitly makes it known that he plans to rescue imperfect mankind, both from that state of imperfection and from it’s ‘natural’ consequences, namely sickness, old age and death (following rules that the Creator himself laid down)? Not me. Give me darkness and hopelessness and gloom. Continue reading
The Star’s going to kill commenting because it sooo wants to hear from us. I don’t think the rightwing Star does want to hear from us, even though most of us are rightwing. The Star no doubt looks upon the fools who suck up it’s propaganda so as to become fine consumers who never think about important things or challenge neoliberal orthodoxy, with contempt. They are part of the rabble, the bewildered herd of which Walter Lippmann spoke. Continue reading
Are Canadians apathetic? They can be excited, but that doesn’t mean anything. Lemmings are ‘running’ when they go over their cliff. The denizens of rightwing think tanks in Canada are laughing their butts off at how Canadians have been so propagandized and manipulated that they can actually vote for, essentially, a think tank. And not just any think tank. The finance minister arguably has as much power as the PM (doubly the case here, with the inept, but handsome, Justin Trudeau). And who does Justin appoint to be his finance minister? He appoints Bill Morneau, a multimillionaire and former Chair of the C.D. Howe Institute, a Canadian rightwing, trouble-making think tank that has been instrumental in foisting neoliberalism (with inequality at it’s center) first upon the uncaring major media and other cultural managers – those who rightwinger Friedrich Hayeck identified as the secondhand purveyors of ideas – and then onto all of society. Way to go handsome! Continue reading
