The Man and his finger

from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger


The man known for his utter contempt not only for the voters but for the whole mankind has yesterday resigned from the Federal Parliament after solemnly promising not to do so. Nobody is surprised.

Even in the Parliament, when not in the limelight, he had more important things to do than to be bothered with legislating …



Some commentators, even the so called conservative ones, are concentrating on the damage Rudd did to the Labor Party. Yes, it was considerable, but that could be counted as a plus in his career. But the question is – what further damage to Australia will he do now? The chance that he will quietly crawl back under the rock and stays there is unfortunately very small. We have not seen the last of his finger.


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.
