The Free Market:
The Road to Freedom Paved with Indifference

Nipawin - Monday, January 28, 2002 - by: Mario deSantis




We live in an absurd world where leadership exalts freedom as a standard of life and wage wars to defend this freedom of a standard of life. But freedom is not our standard of life, freedom is a concept which celebrates what is good in humanity, such as freedom from hate, freedom from poverty, freedom from war, freedom from indifference.




When the Saskatoon police and Saskatchewan Justice put Peter Klassen in jail for four years while knowing all along he didn't commit any atrocious crime he was charged for, I think that this has happened because people in the Saskatoon police and people in Saskatchewan Justice prize their standard of life above the individual right for Peter Klassen to make a difference for the common good.




Again, as Saturday I explained the economic BIG BUBBLE being caused by corporatist leadership, I think that this is happening because this corporatist leadership prize their standard of life above the right of all other people to make a difference for the common good. Again, as today we commemorate the anniversary of the holocaust, I think that this human atrocity occurred because the German Nazis prized their standard of life above the right for other people to make a difference for the common good.


As long as we are indifferent to the disadvantaged predicament of other people we have no justice. Our absurd world today is not much different from Nazism or Fascism times as we wage wars against terrorism while we kill innocent people, as we preach the Free Market while we make the poor poorer, as we run our countries with governments representing private contractual deals rather than social contracts for the benefit of the common good.


Silvio Berlusconi and Alessandra Mussolini


In Italy, for example, we have President George Bush's friend Silvio Berlusconi who is taking over the Italian judiciary to protect himself from charges of corruption, and in this same country we have parliamentarian Alessandra Mussolini who publicly hails her grandfather fascist dictator Benito Mussolini as the 20th century's "greatest statesman" while her government is still refusing to return the obelisk Benito Mussolini stole from Ethiopia in his 1937 imperial war.


Dictatorship has not ended with the 2nd world war, it is here with us in the form of the Free Market as long as we remain indifferent to the self evident rights of individuals and other people.
  Quote by Donella Meadows "challenging a paradigm is not a part-time job. It is not sufficient to make your point once and then blame the world for not getting it. The world has a vested interest in, a commitment to, not getting it. The point has to be made patiently and repeatedly, day after day after day"
