Chairman Harper and the Chinese Sell-Out
by Andrew Nikiforuk | TheTyee.ca | October 11, 2012
“Who needs democracy? Secret treaty is a massive giveaway of Canadian resources and rights with no vote in Parliament…”
“…The investment banker never explained how a highly subsidized industry whose leaders are appointed by a secretive human resource division of the Communist Party of China qualify as free market agents…
“…Harper’s Communist-leaning Tories …”
The above article jokes that possibly he is a communist. Well, why not? Why do “conservatives” love Communist China so much? Is China both “capitalist” and “communist”? The “left-right” paradigm doesn’t work for explaining reality because the two wings are part of the same bird, namely “Wall Street” or international corporations, as Antony C. Sutton has documented. (By the way, GM sponsored a film celebrating the anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party.)
I don’t agree with calling Harper a “libertarian economist”. Libertarian ideas may not be on target on all points and there are different flavours of libertarianism, but based on past statements, Harper is not sympathetic to libertarianism. See this National Post article by Jesse Kline (http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/02/14/vic-toews-draws-line-on-lawful-access-youre-with-us-or-the-child-pornographers/):
“…Mr. Harper fired the opening shot when he made a surprise appearance at the Manning Centre Conference in 2009. In a speech that the Financial Post‘s Terence Corcoran dubbed, “The Night the Prime Minister Purged Libertarians from Canadian Conservatism,” Mr. Harper launched a scathing attack on libertarians, who he — using twisted logic that almost rivals that of Mr. Toews — basically accused of causing the financial collapse.”
There may be globalists who have their special version of libertarianism, but Harper is actually a globalist of the neoconservative variety. Based on his actions, which are like almost all of the Canadian politicians and Western leaders I can think of who constantly attend endless international meetings, he obviously believes in having an authoritarian global government controlled by monopolistic private interests (a more open, enhanced version of the current system). This is the way the 2010 G20 was conducted in Toronto.
He is playing a role that is part of a larger plan seeking to build up China and reduce the independence and economic performance of Western nations who used to uphold rights and freedoms. Reducing Western prosperity and freedoms, establishing authoritarianism, and hanging out in China are also characteristics of the Green faction. Even though his government passed the Sustainable Development Act in 2008, Harper does not play the role of Green. But the policies of so-called left and right are all working towards the same goal.
