It’s always depressing–really depressing–to read of such patent hypocrisy from the Tories and right-wing, in general. Harper’s desire for more prison expansion is another case in point. Government, the logic goes, is always bad, except when it builds prisons, which instance right-wing social ideals but do worse than zero for actual crime and even less to counter social injustices. Government money is bad otherwise–sigh.

Meanwhile, our tax dollars are spent in obscure ways to produce negative effects and to counter social justice, and our tax dollars–mine, say–are spent on things which are worse than costly: they lock in a system that will continue the social injustices and opacity.
