Democracy Gone Astray

Democracy, being a human construct, needs to be thought of as directionality rather than an object. As such, to understand it requires not so much a description of existing structures and/or other related phenomena but a declaration of intentionality.
This blog aims at creating labeled lists of published infringements of such intentionality, of points in time where democracy strays from its intended directionality. In addition to outright infringements, this blog also collects important contemporary information and/or discussions that impact our socio-political landscape.

All the posts here were published in the electronic media – main-stream as well as fringe, and maintain links to the original texts.

Government can help people and still balance books, Ambrose says on budget eve

The Conservatives say it is possible to protect Canada’s most vulnerable while still balancing the federal government’s books.

But interim leader Rona Ambrose told a business gathering in Ottawa today she expects neither from the maiden Liberal budget.

Ambrose says the fiscal plan, to be unveiled Tuesday, will only serve to harm the economy by sinking the country further into debt.

And she predicts that will ultimately result in fewer jobs and harm to vulnerable Canadians.

Speaking to an audience that included Assembly of First Nations chief Perry Bellegarde, Ambrose says the job prospects of indigenous Canadians will suffer.

She also says new taxes on stock options, which some expect to see in Tuesday’s budget, would stifle economic growth and innovation.
