What is Politics, Re-Spun?

Journalistic objectivity is a myth. “Fair and Balanced” is a lie. The “No Spin Zone” is the All Spin Zone.

Corporate-concentrated media is bad for democracy and good for keeping people afraid, disempowered, immobilized, isolated and consumers rather than citizens.

So it is important to de-spin the political and re-spin it for social, economic and political justice.

More reflections are worth your time here.

WordPress is a great web platform because open source is powerful, competent, free of global corporate manipulation and some of the best of the altruism of the internet.

  1. Hi Stephen, I stumbled onto your blog by way of thestraight.com today. I really like your ideas about systemic learning. I think that the establishment far prefers it when we compartmentalize problems into separate smaller problems instead of actually connecting dots. For instance forestry, agriculture, industry all impact the environment, but our politicians like to approach them as separate. It also allows them to not regulate these industries, and not assign intrinsic values on resources (like the value of the forest if left intact, or the value of wild salmon not harvested, or the value of a lake left pristine instead of used as a tailings pond!)

  2. I would really love to see Vancouver show their support and unity with the concerned citizens of the USA, against police brutality, against police shootings, against human rights violations.
    Let’s show our love and support! We are with the people of Ferguson, NYC, etc.

    Bottom line: We need to rally together to push for accountability in the police departments EVERYWHERE!
    NO JUSTICE = NO PEACE
