"If we break each others’ legs, GDP will go up, not down. We’ll have to take taxis to work, and pay for more medical care, which are counted as “gains”. Does that example strike you as absurd?"

The left have become centerists that lean right economically where as the right has moved into the realm of authoritarian right whilst providing socialism for coporations.

Greta says she mispoke when she said we need to put politicians against the wall and I agree she did, we need to put politicians and capitalists against the wall.

Fuck off you God bothering bell end:

In his New Year’s message, the prime minister, Scott Morrison, said the fires were having a “devastating impact” and warned that the weeks and months ahead would “continue to be difficult”.

“I wish we had better news on New Year’s Eve but, one news we can always take comfort in is the amazing spirit of Australians,” he said. “We have faced these disasters before and we have come through.”
When is it the right time to discuss the science explaining what's happening here?

It's not a new problem though. It's always been this way. The author of the article aligns himself with the opposition to government. That, and only that, is the point of the article.
Politicking shits me, no matter who does it.
Politicking is what created a lot of the problem being discussed - hard to ponder the solutions without politics being mentioned.

Is this the language of a fence-sitter?
I dunno... Thats not stooge like by my reading. And if it is I suspect he has changed his tune, or at least views this government differently to the historical ones in that article.

I've been reading his work for years, I always got the feeling he was centre leftish and no fan of the LNP. Interesting you're reading LNP fan.

Never mind, point is the article about the increased reliance on volunteers to fund tax cuts for the rich is interesting.

Yeah, I'm flailing a bit, but all prominent journo's are affiliated to one party or the other. It's how the media works. Again, this isn't new, it's just more visible now.
It's no secret that we've had years of warnings about the inevitable outcome of cutbacks on hazard reduction management. Can we really lay that all on the Federal Government?
Disclaimer: I don't have a political party preference. The choices suck arse.

This is not because of hazard reduction cutbacks... Thats an LNP line that is a distortion of things at best.

Are we seriously suggesting we should have burnt all the national parks to stop them burning?
