In 13 short days the Take Back Democracy! conference will begin here in the Ottawa area – 3 solid days of learning together what the 1% doesn’t want us to know, and fighting back against their destruction of hope, freedom and democracy. The title of this conference alludes to the theft of the term democracy by the 1%, and their attempts to re-use it as a term to refer exclusively to the multi-house, majoritarian rule election-based type of institutionalized governmental system. Such as the Westminster system we suffer from here in Canada, originally designed by and for the British monarchy and ruling class. That is not and cannot be democracy by itself. Only when the true will of the people, in the absence of their deception, is being expressed, is a community democratic.
And right now, Canada is not what democracy looks like.
