There is ample freedom and democracy available in society for those with money. Those with money may hire lawyers to press their causes. Those with money may purchase media outlets through which their views are disseminated. Those with money may donate lavishly to get candidates elected who will serve their interests.

When those without money use the means at their disposal to gain redress, they are commonly met with police and prison and in an ominous development, are being labelled as "terrorist" groups as soon as they mount significant resistance to the status quo.

One group that is "fighting to win" is the The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, OCAP. Yet OCAP hasn't beaten, gassed or shot anyone. Instead, the are mobilizing a broadening constituency throughout the province of Ontario with the goal of bringing down the regime of premier Mike Harris.
