Another welcome article by James O’Neill for the New Eastern Outlook. Very precise. Very open. Very clearly stated. Very true.
Australia is governed stupidly. Primarily due to the cowardice (or greed, but mostly I would say cowardice) of those in power. And the sad thing is that it wouldn’t really matter who was sitting in those hot seats.
If democracy is government of the people, for the people, by the people, then it has been a long, long time, perhaps since or even before federation, that Australia could declare itself a democracy. That is to say, it never has been a democracy. Just another staged show for shadowy imperialist power. Only the shadowy imperialists have changed – and not for the betterment of the people.
If that is considered an unsavoury view, now that it is recognised, just wait for what comes next.
