Phony right wing libertarianism

The right trumpets itself as defenders of individual rights versus state authority, but surrenders independent socio-economic power to the most non-libertarian force on the planet: corporate globalism. Like Mike Harris's Lack of Common Sense Revolution: on the surface it's all about the individual being free from the state but in the pale and sickly underbelly it's really about allowing conglomerates to chain free enterprise and underwrite the costs of buying off all hopes of fairness.
