Abbott’s promises


from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

mickeyNobody trusts politicians. If they had at least some conscience, they would be selling used cars. In no other field of human endeavour one can get away with so blatant lies without going to jail (the “science” of climatology possibly excepted). Only a most naïve voter expects the elected politician to keep his or her promises. Still, one hopes that a politician one voted for will break only those promises which affect him, the voter, the least.

Needles to say, Abbott and his clutch of weasels are breaking the wrong ones. Taxes will go up and the ABC’s budget will perhaps be reduced by the staggering 1% over 4 years. After Abbott’s effective back-flip on a free speech (not promised abolishment, but a meaningless tinkering with s 18 C) that’s yet another nasty poke in the eyes of the genuine conservative voters. Abbott is in effect saying – we can do whatever we want, you have no choice but to vote for us.

 It seems that there remains practically no option but the next time to vote for Hanson, Palmer, Mickey Mouse or anybody so as to shake those few remaining semi-honest politicians from their arrogant complacency. Nothing will shake pseudo-catholic, pseudo-conservative Abbott.quill.1


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.
