What Else Is There?

It is the power of capital that corrupts and debases our democracy. There are only a few alternatives to choose from when it comes to strategies to destroy this power:

The Liberal Party of Canada strategy of working hand-glove with capitalism in order to attempt to impose your idea of "reasonable" behaviour upon it. Well, we all know how that's worked out.

The NDP approach. Campaign from the centre-left for decades. Cave to "reality" when in power and become Liberals. (Rae, Romanow, Dexter, the Manitoba NDP) Whatever.

Vote Green and believe in eco-capitalism as well as in your ability to force involuntary green policies on corporations without addressing the reality of power. I'm not waiting to see how it works in practice.

Vote Marxist. I wonder who believes this in Canada in this day and age.

Throw rocks through windows with a dozen or so of your friends and then scamper off to allow peaceful protesters to face the state's wrath. (Why didn't I think of this??)

Petition psychopathic murderers who think you're an idiot. Peacefully assemble to show them how many (or how few) of you there are to the psychopathic murderers. Brilliant.
