The current "neoliberal" bailed-out "free market" diseconomy, imposed globally by military war crimes, erases nation-state sovereignty and self-determination in favour of supranational totalitarian predation.
Freedom of thought and expression are erased beneath the amorphous predation of this neo-con "global order". The truth must not emerge, because the truth is entirely toxic to humanity and the habitable planet. Canada's support for Nazism and al Qaeda are hallmarks of the cancer infecting us. But the cancer must be hidden. This is the new "Nazism", (cloaked in humanitarianism), but it is arguably far more devastating than the old "Nazism".
Hallmarks of the system include decimation and plunder of the public sphere, "privatization" and deregulation, factors which led directly to the 2008/09 crash, the public bailouts of corporate monopolies -- including banksand car manufacturing -- skyrocketing public debt, and the on-going economic dystopia of precarious employment, off-shoring of well-paying jobs, rising poverty, and increasing wealth concentrated in the and hands of an oligarchic (extreme) minority.
Predation of the public sphere includes the public bailouts of auto manufacturers and banks. But the corporate monopolies know no loyalties, and they are protected by supranational "free" trade agreements. Hence, whereas the Canadian auto industry received almost $4 billion in bailouts in 2009, they are now relocating to cheaper pastures. Civic responsibility and neoliberalism are completely divorced from each other.
Overseas, neoliberalism imposes itself through war and terrorism. Canada and its allies support neo-Nazis, al Qaeda and ISIS, but the war propaganda and the apparatus of Lies Inc., to which the colonial media, spawn of concentrated media ownership, owes its fidelity, hides the truth to all but the well-informed. War propaganda is the norm, not the exception.
This failed economic model perpetuates itself domestically and globally with vast and increasing inflows of public monies. Hence, the over $32 billion that Canada spends on "Defence" spending to the detriment of spending that addresses real world needs.

The "global order" preached by Canada and its allies, is the new Fascism, globalized, parasitical, mass murdering, and mindless.
Canada can remain a vassal to the worst of the worst, relinquishing all of its sovereignty, or it can take steps towards a better future. Leaving NATO would be the first best step.
