He was a politician

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

In normal times one could ignore the death of a politician, because of the de mortuis nil nisi bene saying and the principle that if you can’t say anything good, say nothing. But these are not normal times. The hypocritical Left is plumbing the depths Dr Goebbels would be ashamed of, so Malcolm Fraser, deceased, become almost a hero in their blinkered eyes because he, in his dotage, totally repudiated everything the Liberal Party of Australia used to stand for. (Somewhat similar to the other Malcolm, still alive, apparently not senile and viciously kicking his party.)

For the more balanced, non-PC, no main-stream-media-herd view I would recommend The Apotheosis of Malcolm Fraser or How hatred helped drive Malcolm Fraser to the Left.

Fog of Chaos mentioned him a few times – Spirit of compromise / October 2013; Symbolic symbols / March 2014; Double or nothing / June 2014 and As you would expect / July 2014. From Spirit of compromise: “…Pray tell me, what principles Malcolm Fraser (ex-Liberal Prime Minister) ever had? After his misunderstanding with Lloyds of London he espoused any politically correct myth, perhaps, to be charitable, without a fee. Even now, in his dotage, he campaigned for the extreme Left scatterbrain Sarah Hanson-Young. “

The sad end of life for a sad, lonely and bitter man, who had to advertise for a paid companion to take him fishing.

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.

    A politician, just a politician. No statesman or an elder wise man, on the contrary, a fool.
