Pessimistic policy agendas of the LNP
We won’t have it! We won’t take it! We don’t want it!
We don’t want the sickly pessimism of these failed penny-ante philosophers, these failed leaders, these failed and failures of small-minded-people that head and advise this government.
Look at them!: Failed Priests, failed Fathers, failed relationships, failed business, failed careers. Fail! Fail! Fail! And they want to tell us how to live our lives! The majority of us who have gone down the hard-track of either self-training, self-employment, single mothers, full families, full workload and all the trials and tribulations of life and living. Give us a break! Give us a friggin’ break!
GET OUT OF OUR LIVES, YOU DEADBEATS. GET OUT OF OUR LIVES!
There was a perfectly decent set of policies put in place by the Gillard Labor administration that laid the foundations for a more fair, equal and financially secure society. But it has been trashed by these failures that are now trying and failing again to sell us a dodgy set of principles that will only lead to many young people failing in their quest toward a decent life and career, breaking the hearts and minds of a whole generation.
That is because the only politics those of the right-wing lobby groups, think-tanks and individuals can promote is the politics of failure. Or to give it a title: “Failure Politics”. That’s all they have got to offer. FAILURE POLITICS.
Infrastructure: Dismantling or environmental damage = Fail.
Social safety net Dismantling and abandoning the most vulnerable = Fail.
Health Coverage: Destroying it for us and favouring the privileged = Fail.
Education: Overpricing or under-delivering = Fail.
Environment: = Fail (without even listing the items!)
Communications: Complete destruction to favour a “failed mate” = Total Fail!
Foreign Policy: Insult nearly every neighbour, religion and culture = Fail.
One could go on and on and on. Failure after failure, stumble after stumble. Stuff-up after stuff-up! And no contrition nor admission … just a continued game of “Blind man’s bluff”. To criticize this government has become a situation of “Where to start”. Seriously, where does one start? It’s like picking up the pieces of shattered crockery. It is total chaos, total failure. In fact, never since the second world war has the anagram “SNAFU” been more apt. Never!
Not only can they not control the very economy they have worked and corrupted so hard to create with their juvenile “economic rationalism” policies. There are many of them so deep into speculative investments, rorts and negative-gearing opportunities, they now cannot even afford to stop their own rot! Likewise with the same-sex marriage issue, regardless that many of their own are either involved in same-sex relationships and want to resolve the issue to their own satisfaction, they have not the gumption to face up to their own members to pass the bill for bringing it on. Hopeless, gutless and useless.
So let’s get serious and consider; What does one do in the workplace when one is confronted with management that has no idea how to run a situation, yet is in charge? One leaves it in place but powerless and by-passes it. Here we have a bit of a problem; the fools in charge think they know what to do, have the power to implement it, still bugger it up and then move on to the next disaster in waiting! It seems it is us who are powerless.
We are supposed to be living in a “rule by law” society, but I see there is one law for some and another for others. The wealthy have access and by-ways and by-passes and the poor or at least the working poor have only social media to push their barrow. The powerful have the mainstream media to punt them along endlessly and relentlessly. The wealthy citizen can even now lobby this LNP government to put in place their favourite hobby-horse dreams as law or legislation, support their acts of lying and thieving without any seeming comeback in either law or policing.
But wait a minute … we have one thing going for us that has the potential for mighty power: As we have seen when we unite on social media locally to punish companies who back a stupid idiot when they do a stupid action. Perhaps we need to “up the ante” a tad or two and start to unite the voice of social media internationally to request peoples of other nations to stop buying products from certain corporations or the united voice of people on social media will unite to stop buying that nation’s companies products! Sure, it’s a big ask, but never before has there been such international unified communication. Perhaps we are on the cusp of a revolution, but a new type of revolution; not arms or weapons, but arms of people raised in protest. The revolution of the passive refusal to be a consuming conspirator of pessimistic politics!
I say, “LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN!” And for starters … switch off Murdoch!
