"I know I’m showing my age now. And feeling all nostalgic about the good old days when petrol cost fifty cents a gallon, when the Club of Rome had only just published its Limits to Growth Report, and everyone just decided to ignore it, because 2020 was so far into the future, it would be someone else’s problem.
We all thought we were laughing all the way to the bank back then…… but little did we know we were in fact laughing all the way to the cliff.
Everything, and I mean everything today is about money. Nobody ever does anything anymore unless there’s money to be made. They’ll even do useless things, unsustainable things, unethical things, immoral things, unbelievably stupid things….. just for the money. Even the government’s onto it. If there’s money to be made, they’ll throw the poor, the sick, the elderly, anybody who can’t grow the money pile, onto the shit heap we call the economy. What are they thinking? How can greed take over like this? How on Earth did the Australian people get sucked in by the lies this current government were proliferating before the election? And then elect the worst government in all of human history?"
