On the Australian Electoral Front

 from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

We are pleased to be able to provide a sneak preview of the Australian Labor Party election video, soon to be seen on all the TV channels except the Australian ones. Please note: The rumour that it was paid for by a certain Ms Therese Rein, a spouse of one of the characters therein, may be totally baseless and quite possibly maliciously spread by the other characters in the skit.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    I wish they would get married and suicide together. It would make such a nice, classical ending.
