  10. Focus and determination required: A call to all progressive organizations to unite under one big umbrella
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    We need a movement powerful enough to pressure corporate media owners into providing equal coverage, and with access to enough financing to support the development of alternative, independent media. If the progressive movement is to be successful in improving society, it is hugely important for it to be able to reach the general public with its information creating a balanced view of important issues in Canada.
  11. For Political Equality 
    All citizens vote on all policies: 20th Century Power Politics and their 21st Century electronic alternative

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2007
    This book aims to motivate people to set up post-parliamentary direct democracy (DD) enabling all citizens to propose-debate-vote on all issues of society. Every citizen - one vote - on every issue of society. This political equality abolishes Power - the role of deciding on behalf of others - the main cause of violence and corruption in society. "To be" is not merely "to exist" but to decide all issues of one's life. Denying citizens' right to decide all issues of society reduces them to mere political pawns. All citizens have the right to decide all policies.

    How Sources can help you get more and better media coverage

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Media coverage is the most valuable kind of publicity there is because it is based on the news value or information value of what you do or say, and is therefore far more credible than paid publicity like advertising.

  22. A Movement Without Demands?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    We claim that far from being a strength, the lack of demands reflects the weak ideological core of the movement. We also claim that demands should not be approached tactically but strategically, that is, they should be grounded in a long-term view of the political goals of the movement, a view that is currently lacking. Accordingly, in the second part of this text, we argue that this strategic view should be grounded in a politics of the commons.

    'Idea' to build a united Canadian progressive

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    The progressive community must learn it has to confront power with power – something we don’t do well in Canada.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Leftists don't spend enough time or energy working on important strategic questions. If we could resolve a handful of these, even tentatively, and try out some solutions, we would be far more successful. Here are six from my list of the most important questions, as well as my answers, which by their very incompleteness and inadequacy should suggest that more people should work on them.
  30. Rebuilding the Left in a Time of Crisis
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    The type of organizers we need to develop need to be those who have developed the skills and capacities and depth that allow them to be good at taking a defensive struggle and saying we can both fight it, and maybe fight it more effectively, if we can link it to a set of demands that are forward looking. They need to be visionary in terms of a socialist strategy.

    A movement to expand the welfare state has the potential to foster a new majoritarian Left coalition.

    Analysts and political leaders on the left focus on how the right wing's lies go unfiltered by the establishment mass media.
