A great story that makes my Canadian heart swell... thank you!
Hey, sometimes the little guy just has a better idea, and can carry it out. But increasingly, we’re all mired in the sludge of big systems and rigid processes. Those systems are predictable and minimize risk. They produce manageable, usually unspectacular results. They protect investments and corporate dominance. They also reinforce hierarchies and entrench both market share and privilege (no, not white privilege — but come to think of it, maybe that too?). They discourage innovation and minimize competition. They are the neo-liberal creed, and they are a major parasitic draw on healthy, market-driven, socially responsible capitalist economies, which need competition and innovation to work properly.
