All to ship tar to China

The Canadian Liberals are so swinishly and openly corrupt that it seems they have even surpassed Harper at this point if that was possible.

Green party leader Elizabeth May was arrested and fined $1500 in court for protesting the pipeline. 

These days might as well mean the end of any real sense of Democracy in Canada.

It is Plato's Republic full circle. Trudeau is the tyrant selling his own country off in a desperate bid to maintain power.

Why I Don't Trust Economists

Thursday, May 17, 2018

If you show an economist a forest and ask its value, your typical economist will reduce it to an approximate number. This abstract number is only tangible if for example the forest is cut down and its trees sold. Numbers are supposed to represent values, but in fact such a person has no values.

The Model of Growth as the Cause of War in Plato's Republic.

Sunday, April 1, 2018

In Plato's Republic Part II it is proposed that the expansion of a city is first a result of a communities' economic needs. Second needs turn to superfluous or extraneous desires for luxurious items the necessity of which are dubious to begin with.  It is this expansion which in turn leads to further requirements for excess farm production, which in turn requires the capturing of further lands through conquest and war.

Almost 2 and a half millennia ago the formula was already known.  We see this today.  Capitalism depends on wars, which in turn allows the consumption of ever growing cities to expand.  This can be seen in British Columbia with the Site C Dam.  Why do we need the dam?  The usual reason is an expanding population.  Rather than dealing with population the root of the problem, only the symptom which is further requirements of energy are addressed, which in turn means further environmental destruction: the flooding of vast natural and farm lands to secure even more energy.

This model is ultimately a slow motion train wreck as it has been for millennia, but pushed to breakneck speed with the industrial, technological and global revolutions.

David Suzuki slams phony environmentalists: Weaver, Trudeau, the NDP and the current Neoliberal economic model.

Monday, March 5, 2018

 Excerpts:

Q: Trudeau’s called the pipelines a “trade off” for the national carbon plan. Earlier this month, he was in Nanaimo saying we can both build Kinder Morgan and hit the Paris targets.

DS: That’s such a lot of bullshit! this is just political doublespeak: ‘We’ve got to keep burning more oil, more fossil fuels, in order to meet our reduction targets.’ What are you talking about? That’s such a crock of shit!



Q: How have the B.C. Greens done?

DS: Well, it was staggering. You always hope the Greens will hold the balance of power. The Greens had their first big chance with Site C. Two weeks before the decision was coming, [Green Party leader] Andrew Weaver said they wouldn’t bring the government down over Site C. 

He wouldn’t even play politics! There’s no way the NDP would’ve wanted another election that soon. He could have taken the government right down and stopped that dam. But his highest priority was proportional representation. That comes before everything else, because he knows in the next election he’s going to get wiped out. It’ll either be a Liberal or NDP majority, so he loses all that power and wants proportional representation. Now politics comes before principle. 

So I’m really disillusioned. We have a guy who ran our climate program in the Foundation for 10 years, Gerry Scott. Gerry was a big NDP guy. When the election was coming-- Carole James was leader of the NDP-- Gerry Scott quit and went over to be an NDP advisor. 

Their big slogan was ‘Axe the Tax.’ [Former B.C. Premier] Gordon Campbell brought in a carbon tax, which is something we had been pushing for for years, and [Gerry Scott] got into politics and said, ‘Axe the Tax.' That’s politics. Principle and ideals don’t mean a goddamn thing. 



 On the economic model of endless growth:

"Because if you’re not growing you’re considered dying. But the drive for growth is a crate of cancer cells. Cancer cells believe they can grow forever. And they can’t. And it’s the same thing with our economy within the biosphere. It can’t grow forever. "

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
