Canada’s Intellectual Elites

In an article published in 2006 by the Ashbrook Centre, Travis Smith (Concordia) says:

“It is the shared prejudice of most intellectual elites and the students here that Canada represents the end of history in its closest approximation known hitherto—where politics ought to be regarded as over, where progressive values are settled and secure, where all that is left to be done is to establish the neutral technocratic administration of things in accordance with social justice, featuring multicultural harmony, a sustainable environment, and unlimited universal health care.”

When politics is over, oligarchy begins. That’s Smith’s point and I agree. Thanks to David Livingstone for this material.
