Once, Australia was a world leader, resilient, bold, socially progressive.
We set about giving everyone a fair go – the vote for women, a living wage, support for battlers. Governments worked for us, built things and made our lives better. Then we dropped the ball. We thought like colonials. We cringed.
Lately we have descended to farce.
Our politics is corrupt and broken. We are divided and fearful. Our economy stumbles along, hollowed out and enriching the rich. Governments abdicate their job and attack the battlers.
None of this has to be. We know how to live well without squabbling and without ruining the land and the planet.
But don’t look to the political mainstream for the answers.
“This is an immensely positive book … a potential ignition point for the revolution we must have if our descendants are to survive the twenty first century” – Emeritus Prof Bob Douglas, AO

Politicians seek to repeat the long history of “Civilasation” development. It works if destruction of other groups of people (tribes) is successful, but while it does change “civilisation” is it what we want to occur in a regular basis of humanity? In some cases, thousands of years ago, the more advanced did not wipe out nearby tribes but simply tought them the system that would improve their living standards. They did not set up a system to rob them which is a major system used by politicians these days.
