It was with some dismay that I read Tom Fletcher’s recent column. The article contained the usual disparagement of protesters. The flip side is of course that the Main Stream Media, or Meme Strategical Messengers writers can always be counted on for such denigration.
By this attitude, Fletcher goes on to establish that all should remain calm and let “Big Oil” define how our relationship with the life support systems provided by our planet are to proceed. Of course Mr. Fletcher will be long dead before the real impact of planetary heating begins having its full genocidal effects.
This makes possible the old Alfred E. Neuman mantra “What, me worry?” implied by his attitude.
As for Fletcher’s take on the Harper government not delivering on the jobs training initiative, no federal government now or in the future will, on an increasing basis, be able to deliver what the people need.
This comes from the straight jacket being fitted on our political apparatus by the international financiers and their corporate brethren under such agreements as the recent Foreign Investment Protection Agreement with China, the Comprehensive Economic (Trade) Agreement with the EU puppet masters, or the mother of them all, the Trans Pacific Partnership.
All are meant to cement corporate sovereign rights under law to be able to trump the regulations set up by nation states or have them face massive monetary recompense paid for by the citizenry. The financial sections being the most onerous.
In all a disappointing column, by a MSM janissary, head in the sand as usual.
