Resolving the collision of public and private interests
Season 2022/2023 Summary
LAST WEEK's SEASON ENDING WEBCAST
The Attack on A Free and Flourishing Canada Today - and what to do about it
Interview of Mark Milke, President - Aristotle Foundation for Public Policy
Social sensitivities in Canada and elsewhere are running high HERE. We've discussed neoliberalism and the rise in social conflict - including the loss of humour HERE. Last week we revisited the topic in our season-ending webinar. Mark Milke shared his perspective, the implications for Canada, and his rationale for establishing the new think tank - the Aristotle Foundation for Public Policy.
Mark Milke, Ph.D., is the President of the new Aristotle Foundation for Public Policy, a new Canadian think tank that champions reason, democracy, and civilization. The new think tank will support free expression, expose cancel culture, and explain the problem with illiberal, anti-individual policies such as “DEI” criteria. Mark is the author of six books and with dozens of studies published across Canada and internationally in the last two decades. His newest book, The Victim Cult: How grievance culture of blame hurts everyone and wrecks civilization, is an Amazon bestseller. See also The 1867 Project - Why Canada should be cherished - not cancelled. In 2019 he was the lead architect of the United Conservative Party election platform and principal policy advisor to UCP leader Jason Kenney. A regular columnist, his commentaries have appeared in the Globe and Mail, National Post, Maclean’s and National Review. Mark is also president of the Sir Winston Churchill Society of Calgary and a past-president of Civitas. Born and raised in Kelowna, British Columbia, Mark lives in Calgary and is an active hiker, skier, and runner with an interest in architecture, photography, cities, and history.
