About Me

Hi, my name is  Ron Brydges and I am a contrarian and a cynic who still votes.  I  have strong beliefs in the need to replace neo-liberal capitalism with socialism. I have a feel for practical economics but I am  not a economist. I feel I am a Canadian nationalist and patriot and when I criticize my country it is with the hope of making my country better. I also see myself as an internationalist, an environmentalist. and a peacenik. My greatest fears are nuclear war and global warming/climate change.

At the best of times I think of myself as a working class intellectual. My credentials are I think I can think and I think I can write.

My  posts are generally an expression of my political thoughts. To lighten up I attempt some humour. You can judge and I welcome your comments….Let’s begin and Question More.
