Harper is No Lion

Funny how things connect.  I had just finished my last post about, essentially, the biology of behaviour and how aggressive behaviour requires broader energy conversation to be sustainable when I read the above piece on Harper's continued efforts to shrink government services yet expand personal control and institutions of security.

Neo-Cons want people to be tough or fade away; therefore, they reduce services expecting that the strong will survive.  Not much thought is given to those who are less able under whatever circumstances, but neo-Cons tend to be limited in scope like that.  Funny enough, Neo-Cons see the national defense and aggressively positioning Canada on the world stage as the only legitimate roles of government.

The more virulent these folk get, the more enslaved they become to their own genetics. 

Personally, I wouldn't call that freedom.
