The Tipping Point: Conservative Strategy to Prevent the Tipping Point

Posted on: October 6th, 2015 by Tom Pattillo No Comments

Tipping Point: the point at which a series of small changes or incidents becomes significant enough to cause a larger, more important change.

If we add up the number of negative actions by Stephen Harper and his cronies over the last 9 years (or in the last 12 months) the height of the tower of negativity begins to tip over. No more actions can be added. Anyone who has played with block knows, from the clattering of falling blocks, this reality.

What to do to prevent this tipping point? Support beams? Perhaps put the tower in a deep hole narrow enough to support a significant height. (Thus leaving only a small portion of the tower of negativity in view.)

Or perhaps the Australian version of the “cloak of invisibility”. This involves, in 2015, convincing everyone there is no tower of negativity. Or building an artificial tower of positivity, coated with shiny gold paint.

Whatever the Conservative delusion solution, it is hoped the Canadian electorate will allow the tipping to happen, and the reality of Stephen Harpers artifice to be seen.
