Centrifugal Force – One Last Thought About Jack
The centrist party is driving haphazardly down the halls of the parliament buildings trying to collide with the leftist congregation.
I love conspiracy theories, especially when the evidence makes the outcome incongruous with the norm. Jack Layton’s prostate cancer appeared to have been won, yet another form of non-descript cancer took his life. Unlike many political leaders Jack’s body was cremated and the ultimate cause of his death was withheld from the public.
Layton was the first party leader to shake the foundations of the two-party system. This system has imbedded its political membership in our parliament, senate, global ambassadorships and the senior public service. In other words, Jack’s victory was a threat to the mainstream establishment.
What we are witnessing now is an attempt by the centrists to overthrow the left. This is a relatively safe mission when you consider that many of the new NDP MP’s are novice politicians. They can be manipulated and controlled by institutionalized politicians. The instability we now see in the NDP party is coming from an external force and not from within.
Could you imagine if Bob Rae ultimately took charge of both parties? This individual is a power hungry, egotistical political wanderer, with only his personal interests at heart. He really loves to hear himself speak. He now echoes Jack’s mandate. Rae will be receiving a lot of air time, and the media establishment will be pressing for the restoration of two-party system. Those who push for a merger are the NDP moles and the establishment whores.
What we should be asking is, “what really happened to Jack?” Why are we pushing for the re-birth of the Liberal party through the merger of the left and center? I am not a leftist, but I am convinced that if this new opposition party is managed properly, it will cleanse some of the establishment corruption. Give it a chance!
