Sample text

There are five or six places that have not been fully pacified inside the vision of the world as run by the victors of the cold war: North Korea, Gaddafi (that has been dealt with), Somalia, Afghanistan, the women of Africa and the poor poor people of China, slaving away under the most terrible conditions doing confusing things like refusing to evolve into Europe. Big places where history is still alive – like Russia, China, the Middle East – are to be feared and demonized.

The government of Norway accused Australia of failing to meet obligations to distressed mariners under international law. Later, another maritime controversy arose in the lead up to the federal elections, in which Howard’s ministers claimed that seafaring asylum seekers had thrown children overboard in a presumed ploy to secure rescue and passage to Australia.

To his distraught opposition, Harper speaks about a Canada they don’t recognize, a country running on an emptiness that can only be filled with bloodthirsty consumption and growth, a country cherry-picking history, without values, without a culture beyond the dogma of allies and economic power.
