Letter: May the gnomes of entropy accelerate our unravelling
To the Editor,
Occupy Nelson was delivering a message, and more evidence – Canada’s shame for leaving First Nations in third-world poverty, hypocrisy in spreading our civilized order by wars in Afro-Asian lands, Harper’s defiance of efforts to mitigate climate change so as to promote economic growth – proves the necessity for transforming capitalism.
But, true to comfortable bourgeois habit, we allow governments to render the messengers invisible, demeaning the protests with labels: “incoherent, leaderless, unfocussed, impractical, unrealistic.”
May the gnomes of entropy accelerate our unravelling, Amen.
Charles Jeanes, Nelson
