i point out, that this stage of "privatization" is only the current phase of colonization / capitalism.
Certainly, the "privatization" of Canada's airports will cost "consumers" more, and will funnel more wealth and power to the narrow class of people who rule over society and the Earth by "owning" everything.
But it's just one tiny step on a very long path.
We don't just need to stop the "privatization" of Canada's airports. We need to reverse that path.
We can't just freeze the process here today. For every single "victory" we achieve (most such "victories" actually being holding actions in which we temporarily block capital from absorbing some specific thing), the established, colonized economy, simply continues to grind forward in its programmed push to "own" and monopolize everything.
We need to decolonize the entire economy. That means we need to completely transform the supposed "ownership" of everything, and establish in its place an economy that is based on dual foundations of ecological accountability and social justice. Eco-socialism, or some other such name that gets at the fundamental needs for all economic activity and all economic structures and systems to support ecosystems and the ecology of the Earth, and to also support the life of each human and human community.
Concentration of "wealth" and capital under the "ownership" of narrow sectors of society is plainly and obviously dis-integrating the entire ecology while grinding the majority of humans under ever-more intensive control by concentrated wealth and capital. The opposite of "liberation".
As always, i get that most members of "civilized" societies think such talk is "unrealistic." Whereas i believe all the "civilized" talk of "regulating" and restraining the rampant will of concentrated wealth, is what is unrealistic. If we do not end, break up, and redistribute "ownership" of the Earth and everything - if we do not truly "decolonize" society and the economy, undo the legacies of colonization - we simply continue on the path we are on, whatever single-issue fights we focus on.
We need a holistic vision and strategy to truly, deeply decolonize.
