As pandemic restrictions ease, Canada should replace its capitalist system with a Scandinavian-style alternative..

In such a ruthless capitalist system:

  • Extracting and selling global-warming fossil fuels is profitable.
  • Pillaging non-renewable resources is profitable.
  • Deforestation is profitable.
  • War, and the manufacture of tanks, warships and military hardware is profitable.
  • Offshore tax havens are profitable.
  • Poverty and inequality are profitable, at least for the millionaires and billionaires.
  • Ill-health is profitable for the big pharmaceutical companies.
  • Hooking kids on junk food is profitable.
  • Low wages and unsafe workplaces are profitable.
  • Purchasing politicians is very profitable.
