Part One: Lefty academic Thomas Homer-Dixon spreads more hooey against the oil sands
... Mr. Homer-Dixon peddles “global governance” at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
... You will also remember the name Balsillie. He’s the guy who co-ran, then co-screwed up, RIM (now BlackBerry). ...
Part Two: Homer-Dixon’s one-way ­conversation
... The lefty lecturer’s accusation that the Canadian “conversation” is being suppressed by a “coercive climate” was rendered even more ludicrous this week by the fact that he was instantly invited onto two major CBC programs...

I saw Homer-Dixon on CTV's Express the other day, and after listening to some of the claims he was making about the Oil Sands, and Alberta in General, I am seriously considering getting rid of my Blackberry. I love my phone, but I can't support a company that has ties to this type of propaganda.

The guy is the picture of a cold elitist blue blood. I saw him on CBC say that oil makes "fat and happy". -Which is bad if your an upside down leftard moron. People should be cold and hungry and mad enough to form mobs and wave signs.

The hyphenated name is often a clue of what to expect. A good qualified journalist would point out to him that it requires oil to produce a Blackberry to say nothing of how his whole lifestyle is dependent on oil. Following this the journalist would point out how the oil sands industry is actually improving the environment before listing the points raised in Ezra's "Ethical Oil".

Balsillie appears to be another of those corporate capitalists who doesn't seem to have a clue about why capitalism and free enterprise are so enormously successful. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet also come to mind. In their ignorance they wind up championing misguided statist projects and hiring even more dangerously clueless globalist statists like Homer-Dixon whose ideas, if implemented, would make the world a much poorer place.
