But it wasn't me who said it, my mental health is fine, thanks, and the phrase wasn't targeting the U.S. as you assumed. It is taken from the National Post article we're all talking about here: "For his part, U.S. head coach Walt Kyle was under the mistaken impression -- one still shared by man...

This journalist wasn't apologizing on behalf of Canadians. "Still, Kyle should know, before he leaves never to come back, that there are still Canadians who feel that the anti-American chanters in the stands are not true sportsmen; that they do not typify the Canadian sense of patriotism; that ...

No, I unfortunately already have plenty of my own opinions. Hence seeking the opinions of others in order to either reinforce or challenge them. Maybe I need to ask more nicely (sorry, I had just woken up) what is the point of this article in Canadian context? What is our relationship to corporatism...

Thank-you for posting some sense and reason. I will echo my displeasure at the behaviour, but no apology (like you aptly pointed out, I didn't do it).

I was going to cheer against the habs this afternoon, but now I think I'll reconsider, what with an election on and all...

I hate to sound like one of the dreaded anons here, but what does this american (and pro-american at that) blog essay against corporatism have to do with Canada and "Eye on Uncle Sam" issues? I think we all know there is a significant portion of the american people dedicated to the "o...

"...the USA ... the USA ..."

The Bush administration is not the USA. I believe marcarc's post was particular enough in that regard.

And yet, Harper regularly refers to libertarians as the "fringe".<br /> <br /> "Rightly or wrongly..the distrust is there..and hence their extreme resentment of the state in all forms."<br /> <br /> And yet, look to our south--the big-S State and its ambit...

1) the statements I was referring to occurred outside this campaign. Harper is not a corporatist, or at least doesn't fancy himself one. I'm not defending Harper's record, merely contesting the implication that he is a corporatist. 2) it seems neo-cons tend to take a negative view of government unti...

"The Conservative Party is led my[sic] a individual who has a negative concept of government. He trusts corporations and certain individual but not the people we elect to govern us." In several of his past speeches, Harper takes significant issue with Corporatism as a system of governance ...

You mean vote for the guy that says: "We also need to rediscover Burkean conservatism because the emerging debates on foreign affairs should be fought on moral grounds." The "moral state" *is* Big Government. Look to the CPC's cousins to the south. The only part of Big Government...

Divide and conquer works, always has worked, always will work. "People just have to quit buying into this" is (unfortunately) a non-starter: there's a lot of stuff people have to do in this world, but they won't. One needs to realize the eternal fallibility of people to these same-old-tric...

This article, which has a revealing link to some of Stephen Harper's earlier rhetoric, is perhaps the best illustration: <a href="http://www.vivelecanada.ca/article.php/20060103233956320">http://www.vivelecanada.ca/article.php/20060103233956320</a><br /> <br /> There are plen...

From Harper's Civitas speech: "Conservatives must take the moral stand, with our allies, in favour of the fundamental values of our society, including democracy, free enterprise and individual freedom. This moral stand should not just give us the right to stand with our allies, but the duty to ...

Don't get me wrong, the site seems to be a decent resource, and many thanks to the author for making the particular resource I was looking for available. <br /> <br /> Just wanted to establish a healthy personal distance from gems like this one:<br /> <br /> <a href="http:...

After I posted that link to that online copy of The Prince I noticed the domain carries amongst its garden-variety U.S. Constitutional analysis a unhealthy dose of conspiracy theory and what appears to be outright quackery. My use of linked copy of The Prince was by no means an endorsement of any ot...
