That Wrong Harper vs that Wrong System? By Exegesisme On the topic "End the Harper Government: My views on Canada's democracy" (1), I said that "The whole political system is encouraging corruption, any party in power can not avoid." The word corruption here mainly means political corruption, which means political wrong doing for political specific benefits of a party. First, I see that Harper made a lot of political wrong doings under the present political system, however, I see he actually did one good thing, which the other two parties are saying that is wrong as part of each strategy for the ongoing election. That good thing is to postpone the retirement age from 65 to 67, this is a policy of all fast aging nations should take. However, in the ongoing election, both the liberal(2) and the NDP(3) are promised overthrowing this policy once they take the power. So, what I see is that the present political system encourages the political corruption for partisan political benefits. I am trying to overhaul the whole political system to get the issues fixed beyond to contemn each wrong doing of each political party. (4), (5). I am also exploring new political possibility(6) and new political philosophy(7). I hope more people standing with me to get the job done. I can not get the job done along without your support. I also hope that all MPs of all parties of Canada in coming time realize the long persisted issues and try to fix them together.
