geopolitics — the study of the effects of geography (human and physical) on international politics and international relations.
“Geopolitics determines domestic policy. This is apparent in the client country ‘Canada’, where no sovereignty is allowed, and where domestic policy is entirely about preventing any emergence of actual democracy. It is glaringly obvious, to anyone who escapes the constant institutional social-engineering restrictions and blaring propaganda amplified by all the media, that US-led geopolitics determines every aspect of state management in Canada.” —Denis Rancourt, Dissident Voice
Denis G. Rancourt is a former tenured and Full Professor of physics at the University of Ottawa. Noam Chomsky has already trumped Rancourt’s observation about the smothering influence of US-led geopolitics on Canada, with his startling and oft-repeated assertion about the US – “We own the world.” And if Canada ratifies the “Made in America” Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), America’s neoliberal colonization of Canada will be complete:
“…it looks like yet another device concealed from the public for good reasons which is designed to carry forward the neoliberal projects to maximize profits and domination and to set the working people of the world in competition with one another so as to lower wages and increase insecurity,” says Noam Chomsky.

Geopolitics determines domestic policy.
This is apparent in the client country “Canada”, where no sovereignty is allowed, and where domestic policy is entirely about preventing any emergence of actual democracy.
It is glaringly obvious, to anyone who escapes the constant institutional social-engineering restrictions and blaring propaganda amplified by all the media, that US-led geopolitics determines every aspect of state management in Canada.
US-led geopolitics determines every aspect of state management in Canada
That US-led geopolitics determines every aspect of state management in Canada is true in every area of state involvement:
Conservatives and Liberals are entirely aligned with Republicans and Democrats
The “Conservative” and “Liberal” blocks are entirely aligned with the US “Republican” and “Democrat” blocks, to the point that it has become a cartoon, with pipelines swinging in different directions at the turn of elections, as easily as geopolitical directions.
Break diplomatic ties with Iran, remake diplomatic ties with Iran… etc.
The obedient Canadian state ensures our citizens and political agency serves US global campaigns
The Canadian state, in the hands of the US governing complex, has given itself the task of gutting our minds and our political agency in order to serve the US global campaigns, without the nuisance of popular domestic awareness or demands. This has been a long and continuing process, which accelerated in the 1980s, and became solidified by ever-increasing “globalization” agreements, and security “cooperation”.
The intelligentsia and bureaucrats have no interest in Canada being an independent, democratic nation
The truth is: there is no Canada. There is only an illusion maintained by servants. There are institutional remnants that would allow sovereignty to take hold, in a battle for the nation, but the intelligentsia and service managers have no interest in an independent and democratic nation on Canadian territory.
Eventually, the majority of Canadians will know exactly what our Indigenous peoples have been subjected to
At this rate, eventually the majority of Canadians will experience something towards what the Aboriginals have experienced in Canada’s genocide. Those who have had their families and lives destroyed by the “children’s aid” and family court complex are already experiencing aboriginality at the hands of a vicious state system.
Our corporate and political elites have been Americanized
The corporate managers (including governments, which are corporations) already invest abroad, serve on the boards of multinationals, vacation in the US, accept tourist packages to Israel, send their kids to Harvard, and even occasionally try to import their facade party leaders from Harvard. The middle managers want a heated pool, vacation packages, big-screen entertainment, two cars, and a golden retirement.
All the others can fight among themselves, be institutionalized, and get fucked.
