A New Reality Is Being Formed.

The unipolar world is irrevocably becoming a thing of the past, a multipolar one is taking shape.

It was something to behold. Dmitri Medvedev, former Russian President, unrepentant Atlanticist, current deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, decided to go totally unplugged in an outburst matching the combat star turn of Mr. Khinzal that delivered palpable shock and awe all across NATOstan.

As Canada’s flag-waving government (with no criticisms from their new NDP supporters) cheers for war and plans a HUGE increase in military spending, the real problems of climate disruption, healthcare failings, and shrinking purchasing power (among others)  go unaddressed. This Australian piece lays out a clear description/analysis of what the NATO/Russia/Ukraine tragedy is all about

Last Tuesday, we awoke to news the federal Liberals and NDP had entered into a “supply-and-confidence agreement” (SACA). The agreement would see them collaborate on a shared policy agenda, and so long as the terms of the SACA are honoured, the NDP will pass the Liberals’ next four budgets and support other confidence motions, allowing the Liberals to maintain government until June 2025.

As the last paragraph below says, excess profit taxes have been imposed during wars. In the Second World War that kind of tax was 75-100%. Ottawa should now impose that kind of tax at all times, not just during the current gas price spike. The "war" against climate disruption and other environmental destroyers must be won for the children, and the current gougers should bloody well pay for it (until their destructive industry is nationalized and wound down).

‘helpful’."*
