The LEAP Manifesto: A real anti-neo-lib vision for Canada’s future

Martin Lukacs has a great article in the Guardian that you all should read. Below is a quote from it as it outlines how all the corporate media in Canada immediately condemned the manifesto.

“The impact of this neoliberal or austerity ideology – the belief the state has no role in positive collective action, that all solutions should be left to an unregulated market – means the Canadian elite seem more able to imagine the end of the world than mild policies that ramp up funding for solar panels. They cannot answer the latter with reason or argument. They can only answer with energy McCarthyism”
