The Need to Change the Direction of the Economy
Statistics Canada reports on economic performance during the second quarter of this year (April, May, June) contradict Justin Trudeau’s remark that the “economy is roaring back.” To benefit their own campaigns, opposing cartel party politicians vying for their own cartel party to form the government immediately pounced on Trudeau’s “roaring” statement as nonsense.
Yes, the statement was nonsense. It reveals how self-serving the Liberals and their leader are. The response of the cartel parties is similarly self-serving. All of them promote themselves by making claims which are not true. The entire machinery of state, from the media, to pollsters and pundits, use their positions to give these cartel parties legitimacy by promoting their claims, disputing their claims and otherwise making sure they cannot be held to account.
Real problems require real solutions, not detached and irrational sound bites from cartel party politicians or endless pro and con spin from media, pollsters and pundits. To deal with the problems in the economy and build a future, working people themselves are coming forward to speak in their own name. The conditions are even forcing unions out of their traditional negotiating and grieving role within the confines of labour law, to protest and contest the use of the state machinery to dictate wages and working conditions, eliminate pensions and compensation for injuries or loss of employment, homelessness and the violation of rights on every front without exception. The new normal treats workers as disposable and negates the rights of all. An authority which permits such things cannot be left to rule.
The oligarchs in power in the economy and those who command the cartel parties vying for elected positions and to form the government to serve themselves and those holding economic power are not going to solve the problems facing the people and economy or even investigate them in a serious manner. They are engaged in a vicious fight over control of the state apparatus to serve their own narrow private interests. They have integrated the economy of Canada as a whole and of each province and territory into the U.S. war machine and are engaged in a brutal fight with rival coalitions and cartels which includes passing backward legislation to justify nation-wrecking in every aspect of life.
Real Problems Require Real Solutions!
The Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada calls on Canadians to raise the level of politics by speaking in their own name about their conditions of life and work, about what they expect from the economy, how resources should be used and who should control them. These are all political problems because human beings cannot control their lives when their security is in the hands of cartel parties controlled by narrow private interests.
