FREE! education will be THE
Subject: Canada's resounding ECONOMIC SUCCESS",
Subject: says the É(eh)PC President/Party Leader
Because THE FUTURE
is ALL ABOUT education.
Education will be the 2nd
PRIORITY of theÉ(eh)PC - after jobs.
Under an É(eh)PC lead Gov't,
education will be 100% FREE.
In order to do that, theÉ(eh)PC
colleges and universities in order to
deliver cost-effective education that
equips graduates for the job market.
Education is SO IMPORTANT that the Gov't
has to take charge in order to make sure college+university
students are getting THE BEST education ensuring
they're *both* JOB-READY + able
to start their own small business.
To achieve this,
theÉ(eh)PC will put in place QUALITY CONTROLS
and make sure there is A DELIBERATETIE-IN TO THE
JOB MARKET DEMANDS.
Believe it or NOT, we doN'T know who
owns the colleges+universities.
It's *NOT* the Gov't.
solves this problem by nationalizing them.
Our *FASCIST* FOR-THE-RICH Gov't
tells us we need LIFELONG education
to ensure we are always EMPLOYABLE.
is NOT POSSIBLE when TUITION FEES keep
going UP to the point that they're UNAFFORDABLE.
This has a
on college+university students
because IT LIMITS THEIR JOB OPTIONS
which in turnLIMITS THEIR JOB MOBILITY
and THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.
THE FUTURE IS ALL ABOUT EDUCATION.
the MOST BASIC
concepts: MARKET VALUE.
TANGIBLES): you can sell them only if
they have A MARKET VALUE.
In the car industry
this value is known as
THE BLUE BOOK value of your car.
If the thing has
NO MARKET VALUE,
because NO ONE WANTS IT.
In A WEAK ECONOMY,
FIXED ASSETS (things,
tangibles) LOSE THEIR MARKET VALUE.
as everyone becomes more careful how they spend their money.
In A WEAK ECONOMY,
JOBS are *NOT* BEING CREATED.
people lose their jobs or work less hours.
they have LESS+LESS $$$
to spend which in turn makes the economy WEAKER!
Let's NOT FORGET
we have 1.6 MILLION JOBLESS
whose lives will be *RUINED* by social assistance.
The 22,000 jobs created this past December
does little reduce the number of jobless.
JOB LOSS is A GLOBAL PROBLEM.
FIXED ASSETS (things, tangibles)
DEPRECIATE becoming OLD+OUT OF DATE.
However, that's *NOT* the case
with education (AN INTANGIBLE).
MARKET VALUE does *NOT* AFFECT education.
THE MARKET VALUE OF education
**APPRECIATES** AS it ACCUMULATES.
SO which is WORTH MORE?
Education (an INTANGIBLE) or things (TANGIBLES)?
The CORRECT ANSWER is education.
quality of life
DEPEND ON IT.
is THE *CREATIVE*
BYPRODUCT of education.
The MORE education
people have, THE MORE INNOVATION
we can expect along with a better quality of life.
the Protestant work ethic
favoured the ACCUMULATION OF *MATERIAL* WEALTH
as A VISIBLE SIGN of GOD'S GRACE.
is NO LONGER PALATABLE
especially due to its INHERENT FASCIST
OVERTONES that allows FASCIST GOV'TS like Canada's
to serve theRich turning everyone else into
slaves of the state.
$$$ - after all - is JUST A THING.
$$$ has NO *INTRINSIC* VALUE
- unlike education.
For that reason, education -
today - is EVERYTHING on account of ITS INTRINSIC VALUE.
For that very reason, education
It teaches us
to SEE+UNDERSTAND THINGS
thanks to "a trained eye".
Possibly, this is what is meant by
THE WORDS OF HOLY SCRIPTURE "and the blind will see".
It can CAST LIGHT
on a dark situation that leads to its resolution
- by discussing it
- by looking at it from different angles.
It allows us
to figure things out
in order to BETTER UNDERSTAND
- where humankind came from
- where it's heading.
It's the cornerstone of civilization
that has allowed us to GO FORWARD.
It helps us to understand
- who we are
- what we're about
- how much we all have in common
(We all *SHARE* 99% of THE *SAME* DNA.)
In other words,
education HUMANIZES US,
SENSITIZES US to the condition of others.
It teaches us
what BEING HUMAN is ALL ABOUT.
It helps us to
BETTER CHART OUR FUTURE.
is our GREATEST *LIBERATING* FORCE
because it offers us GREATER DEGREES OF FREEDOM.
LITERACY IS SO IMPORTANT.
(That's why it's SO SAD to learn that India has ONLY a 50% literacy rate.)
People today recognize
THE NEW ECONOMIC REALITY of temporary jobs means
- they'll be EARNING LESS
- their employability depends on their education
is dependent on lifelong education:
this is A PARADIGM SHIFT.
We are going
from a material-based society
to A LESS MATERIALISTIC ONE
is THE NEW CURRENCY
and where FIXED ASSETS are BURDENSOME
because we have a more MOBILE LIFE STYLE.
SO WHAT'STHE POINT
of owning a multimillion dollar home+many vehicles
if those things become WORTHLESS due to a weak economy?
Going from a society that prizes TANGIBLES (things)
to one that prizes INTANGIBLES like education+
PERSONAL SKILLS is A PARADIGM SHIFT.
It means that education now replaces wealth
as *THE* POWER+STATUS SYMBOL.
SO, it's NO LONGER HOW MUCH YOU HAVE that counts,
but HOW MUCH YOU KNOW.
Our goal in life will NOT BE to ACCUMULATE THINGS,
but TO KNOW THINGS.
We'll be able to ADD VALUE
thanks to our education+INSIGHT
(derived from education) to contribute to THE GREATER GOOD.
SO, do you want to be A HOLDER OF THINGS
or A KNOWER OF THINGS transfoming you into
A MOVER+SHAKER because you *know*
how to influence change - in the right direction.
With education, you can become
AN AGENT OF POSITIVE CHANGE
that IMPROVES THE HUMAN CONDITION.
This makes you a hero (heroine).
This PARADIGM SHIFT is
THE BYPRODUCT of postmodernism.
Postmodernism is about being service-based,
well-connected, information-savvy international society.
The Internet+portable phones reinforces postmodernism.
Postmodernism is about
- EVERYONE *wanting* TO HELP EVERYONE
- EQUALITY replacing HIERARCHY
(THE BUTTRESS OF FASCISM).
Postmodernism contributes to organizations being flatter,
matrix-based (instead of hierarchical) as exemplified by the
*authentic* dot-coms where everyone is HIGHLY
VALUED TEAM MEMBER who contributes to THE OR-
With this postmodern service-oriented, fraternal
sensitivity+PARADIGM SHIFT THE SLOGAN
OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION of liberty, equality,
and fraternity (liberté, égalité, fraternité)
Fis becoming true in today's age of postmodernism.
This PARADIGM SHIFT means A NEW
*compact* LIFE STYLE:
- one of DE-COLLECTIVIZATION for
greater mobility, greater freedom
of movement, flexible job hours,
MORE CHOICES, IMPROVED
QUALITY OF LIFE
- one of being environmental friendly
This nomadic MENTALITY
of living with less (reduced consumption)
is GOOD for the environment.
In the future,
we'll be MATERIALLY POORER,
because we'll have GREATER CONTROL over the direction of our lives.
The future prosperity of our knowledge-
based society HINGES ON one thing: FREE
will let Canadians get as much education
they feel they need throughout their lifetime.
will allow the JOBLESS to be PRODUCTIVE
by going back to school to be MORE EMPLOYABLE.
PRODUCTIVITY is THE CORNERSTONE
of theÉ(eh)PC because it's THE KEY
TO A STRONG, VIBRANT ECONOMY.
Tomorrow's PRODUCTIVITY is directly
dependent on FREE education.
is Prime Minister Harper SO GUNG HO on acquiring
65 *NEW* F-35 jet fighters.
ShouldN'T he be thinking in terms of education
instead of war planes?
Are HIS PRIORITIES in the wrong place?
What do you think?
HIS DISPLAY OF *INCORRECT* will cost the taxpayers dearly with NO DIRECT BENEFIT to them.
He's giving the taxpayers A KICK IN THE ARSE,
is he not?
What do you think?
Personally, I think we need to give him THE HEAVE HO.
We need FREE education NOT more fighter jets.
TheÉ(eh)PC sees FREE education
as being THE KEY to CANADA'S FUTURE.
Our Conservative Party Prime Minister does NOT!
SO, do you want FREE education
or BILLIONS OF DOLLARS worth of fighter jets?
Which will benefit you more?
FIREpower or BRAINpower?
TheÉ(eh)PC gives you FREE education
+A BRIGHT FUTURE.
That's what any you want.
A BRIGHT FUTURE.
With Harper IT'S BACK TO THE PAST.
TheÉ(eh)PC will REDESIGN the Gov't to work
100% for YOU!
