Harper's Pension Joke

   - from Brian Azzarello's Joker graphic novel.

That's what popped into my mind when I read this:

Harper is an ideologue; he wants the world to confirm to his ideology.  Part of him feels he's smarter than anyone else and gets the dynamic of society better than anyone else.  In his world, destroying federalism means that it will cease to exist, and the provinces/people will live in competitive silos and that will be a good thing.

Trouble is, his model doesn't work - never has, never will.  The gap he's building at the centre of Canada's federation is increasingly being filled by the provinces, working together in various chunks, subverting Harper's will and ignoring the directions he's setting for the country.

Harper isn't one to admit defeat.

That's our PM, folks.
