“Inverted totalitarianism comes into being not by design, but by inattention to the consequences of actions,” writes Sheldon S. Wolin.
This is certainly true of today’s Canada. Our inattention to the Harper government’s increasing control over our information streams – and its assaults on our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is Canada’s version of the US’s Constitutional rights — is inexorably leading us towards a closed society.
The Harper government’s very ascent to majority status was tainted, with charges of electoral fraud. The issue has been relegated to the back burner by corporate media conglomerates, which have succeeded in devaluing the charges.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
