Neo-liberal economics has torn our society apart. We are no longer a community – we are individuals each trying to accumulate and protect as much of the pie as we can and bugger those who don’t have the skills or resources to join the gravy train.
We have become unbelievably selfish. We have lost all sense of responsibility in our pursuit of personal wealth. We admire rich people and don’t really care about their ethics. We don’t feel an obligation to contribute – get away with whatever you can is the new ethic. Empathy is so weak. Responsibility is always someone else’s.
Why pay tax when you can pay an accountant?
Pay more for electricity? No effing way! F*ck the environment. F*ck anti-job Green lawfare
Donald Trump and Pauline Hanson will find us jobs.
Some of us ask about their plan to do that but sadly, we are in the minority.
I try to understand rather than blaming but I have come to the conclusion that, when half the population have an IQ of less than 100, and they are being manipulated by false information to make decisions that have a huge impact on the life of my family, this cannot continue. I do not want Jacqui Lambie and Malcolm Roberts making decisions for me.
I don’t blame the people who believe what they are told. I blame the people who deliver the spin.
Politicians and media should understand what they have done – created a climate where Donald Trump could be elected POTUS and Pauline Hanson could have the balance of power in Australia.
Democracy cannot operate successfully when people in power, both political and media, lie.
