    A little hint. Orwell wasn't American.

    I think rickyb should change his name to "I hate the USA"

    personally i would just leave, but I admire the americans like chris hedges and cornel west who are willing to be arrested and maced while they fight for freedom.

    Ricky B, worry about your own country being ruled by two emperors, Stephen Harper and Queen Elizabeth.

    I don't even think Klein is alive anymore, he has stopped posting here and his Facebook page(the last time I looked) has no recent posts and he was always posting on there about all the contests he was entering.

    Interesting read. Hedges does make some good points.

    dont know about the queen liz thing, but apparently harper is like george w bush. canada seems to follow america's steps. most of the guys i listen to are american though, not sure who the great canadian political economists / journalists are. i guess when you have a country 10x the size of canada u can pick and choose and get better thinkers.

    I'll bet you've never even read "1984" and know nothing about Orwell.
