Thinking Our Way Forward

We need this sort of thinking in our political parties.  Mostly, at present, our representatives [not] are self-serving and/or manipulees of others, of poor intellect, devoid of ethical or other than fake moral character, often even corrupt, rarely rational, ignorant or dismissive of even the most significant evidence, lacking in compassion, and totally acculturated to a materialistic and capitalist, top-down society.  There are, of course, a few exceptions but they…

Rape – Why do men sexually assault women?

This  The actions behind the Dutch backpacker’s brave escape are sadly familiar  is an unfortunate article for at least two reasons: firstly that the reality of rape and attempted rape gave cause for it to be written at all, and secondly because its extensive generalisation tends to reinforce the notion of females as victims and males as grossly deviant and prone to sexual assault of women, often accompanied by aggression…

Cashless Society Concerns

The ubiquity of credit cards is already bad enough.  How the Unions allowed employers to move to direct deposit of wages was the thin edge of the wedge.  These two factors have been major contributors, in my opinion, to the growth of personal debt and a false view of worth allied to a materialistic, “have it now” society that encourages debt, even revels in it, to the benefit of the…

Blame the Victim: The Real Cause of Centrelink Crisis

This resonates so strongly with me that I can and do believe it is more than fair comment. My view is that those who think this is just an attack by a disgruntled ex-employee are wrong, and most probably fans of nasty LNP ideology. Paul Shelter clearly attempted to change the culture whilst remaining in-house. However, as is almost always the case, it is virtually impossible to change the mindset…

27 Things To Give A S**t About In 2017

There are many people who stand up and speak out.  Often they are derided as “patsy’s” or “bunnies” – stupid for sticking their heads above the parapet.  They are effectively derided for taking action against…

The World’s top criminals, psychopaths and megalomaniacs of 2016

I can’t say it any better than has Sarah Gill.  This piece should ignite the ire of every caring, compassionate, clear-thinking, knowledgeable and intelligent This piece should ignite the ire of every caring, compassionate, clear-thinking, knowledgeable and intelligent person on this planet. Over the last day or two, I’ve been reading woeful commentary and postings which express deep concern for Queen Elizabeth II having a cold. The concern is that,…

Public servants offered big bucks to stay with APVMA

Outrageously, the Liberal National Party alway claim to be the best money managers.  They may be the best money managers for those at the top of the financial tree and for big business but for the nation? – NOT AT ALL. We have seen this government waste $millions on off-shore detention of asylum seekers.  We have seen them give $50 million to Cambodia to resettle just 2 asylum-seekers, one of…

Socially Manufactured Hate

Small minded, insular and ignorant people will probably always exist. Certainly, their numbers will not decrease unless and until we are led by honest, caring and selfless leaders who model integrity and explain the opportunity offered by differences in cultural traits and mores. We also need to recognise that schooling is *not* education and that the “3 r’s”, whilst providing a functional basis for life, do little to instil a…
