I woke with a headache and a crystalline vision in my mind.
I HATE this Australian government, because:
They are proof beyond all doubt that there is no enlightened future for
the human race. We are doomed to go down clambering for power,
clutching at wealth and personal reward, stepping on the heads of our
fellows as our civilisation crumbles.
When we had the opportunity to cooperate and work together in a united
effort to realise our great potential and when we most needed
enlightened leaders, they gave us self interested autocratic fascists.
And so this is how we will end!
And when the going gets tough the
Australian people will light a BBQ and cook their neighbors for dinner.
It is the truth about us which keeps us in a state of constant denial. When we see it clearly our hearts sink and we tremble with dread. Better to live in a hopeful lie than accept that reality.
There is no magical future where The Scientists solve all the problems we have created. There is only now and the decisions we make NOW. We chose a heavy night on the piss, burned all blueprints for a sane future in one final lust filled romp with no looking back, slept through the alarm and didn't wake up in the morning. The cupboard has been eaten bare, weevils are in the rice and the well is dry (or contaminated with fracking waste...)
