Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

bad things happen...

"Bad things happen when good people do nothing."

It's a saying; a truism. It sounds wise.

It motivates "good" people into action to try to upturn "bad" situations/circumstances/policies/governments/etc/etc/etc.

Yo dudette!!!! Yo dude!!!

Have we spotted yet what the problem is, my dear dudettes and dudes?

Well, the problem is the assumption that "good" and "bad" are absolutes, rather than the value judgements of individuals, groups, nations, religions, cultures, etc, etc, etc.

So, using the above truism, we could justify the zealous opposition to ANYTHING.

Makes you wonder, don't it?

Good/bad, right/wrong, better/worse...

But who decides what's good/bad, right/wrong, better/worse ???

Hmmm???

Hi Gerry!

You are precisely right!
Sadly,even if we knew right from wrong and we all agreed on it, it's a bit too late to have any impact on this archaic society I beleive.

But but, but... What about Johnnie HoWARd's Orstayan Values? Don't we all agree on what's right/wrong, good/bad, better/worse for Orstraya? Surely we all agree about those? How else could there be such a thing as Orstrayan Values, if we didn't all agree on what they were, eh? ;-)

we will be told what the values are by our betters. by which i mean the federal government, sensible media commentators and you know who they are, and real australians. you can tell who they are becuase they vote for the government.

the rest of us are elites and need to be re-educated.
