Capitalist domination of politics breeds contempt

We've lost sight of who we're supposed to be. The majority of us never really knew. We cling to comfortable, incoherent generalities. Who cares that Canada's government tortures? Who cares that we allow ourselves to be ruled by a government with contempt for Parliament and steals re-election via election fraud? A bunch of young men who were born here won a series of hockey games as a team representing us! (And some women did the same sort of thing.) We rock.

Just typing those words makes me cringe inside.
