S. Harper and his cronies need to be shown the door, regardless of your politics. We as Canadians have ALWAYS prided ourselves on being a country of moderates. We used to mock American politicians and their unbalanced agendas, and now we have allowed this same polarization to enter into our own political system. The very fabric of the social structure that made Canada unique is being eroded a little each day.

You have the chance to change the world for ourselves, children and all those who follow. But if you continue to ignore what powerful intellectuals are positing as next steps to take, and fail to organize internationally then we all lose.

The surface of life has greatly improved, at least for educated, reasonably comfortable people -- say, the top 20 percent, socioeconomically. Yet the deeper structures, the institutions that underpin a healthy democratic society, have fallen into a state of decadence. We have all the information in the universe at our fingertips, while our most basic problems go unsolved year after year: climate change, income inequality, wage stagnation, national debt, immigration, falling educational achievement, deteriorating infrastructure, declining news standards. All around, we see dazzling technological change, but no progress. Last year, a Wall Street company that few people have ever heard of dug an 800-mile trench under farms, rivers, and mountains between Chicago and New York and laid fiber-optic cable connecting the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange.
