When Society Fails

Something has been disturbing me for the past few years and like a nasty rash it can be ignored for a while until it simply cannot. The nasty rash that disturbs me is how in a country of allegedly educated people that anything of any consequence is now a case of being in one campContinue reading “When Society Fails”

Eve of Destruction

Way back in the murky mists of times past when people had the courage of their convictions and would do what it took to push back against a corrupt and broken world there were a lot of songs written that put those messages out into the world. Except of course for the ones that wereContinue reading “Eve of Destruction”

Vaxx vs Unvaxxed

The push for allowing ‘freedoms’ for fully vaccinated people and denying ‘freedoms’ to those who are unvaccinated is one of the hot topics currently in Australia. It is being promoted by our political class and media, and as with anything to do with the virus it is creating a divide within society and within segmentsContinue reading “Vaxx vs Unvaxxed”

Lockdown Protests

The protests against the lockdowns in Melbourne and Sydney were interesting in a variety of ways. Interesting in the ways that government handled them in comparison to other protests that have been conducted in Australia since the pandemic began in 2020. Also interesting in the way the media covered the protests compared to other protests.Continue reading “Lockdown Protests”

Same Shit Different Day

There are so many topics to touch upon today that it has become somewhat impossible to figure out where to begin. First things first, this technological dinosaur has embedded two songs that kind of relate to the sentiment of this article. Here in sunny lockdown Australia this morning the news is the same old, sameContinue reading “Same Shit Different Day”

Growing food for fun

Since late 2019 I have slowly but surely cultivated a vegetable patch in the backyard of the place me and my son live in. It is an old rundown joint in coal country near the rail line and the ground in the yard here is full of the debris of generations which includes gravel, railContinue reading “Growing food for fun”

Antipodean Angst – part 10

Subversion as a tool To understand how a thing works you must understand the mechanics of a thing. The principles of subversion are ancient. Refining and adapting those principles to the era and the environment they exist in is more or less fine-tuning. Sun-Tzu, the Chinese military strategist was poking around roughly in 500BC andContinue reading “Antipodean Angst – part 10”

In a Time of Madness

It increasingly seems that we are living in a time of madness. Just when you think that the craziness that has come to mark the 2020’s could not get worse, it does. I am referring in large part Australia, and then in the interests of inclusion and diversity include the remainder of the world. AustraliaContinue reading “In a Time of Madness”

    1. Thank you.
      Even better is when we can agree to disagree. It makes things better. You have some interesting articles and points of view which provoke thought.

  2. The use of English language in Australia kind of revealed a huge part of everyday mystery to me. It’s exhilarating to think of your normal day as a widespread search for the real meaning behind the words said by these indviduals around you. Of course, their interests and behaviour can be interpreted, in order to predict the next words or their line of actions, but still, you might have it harder than me, since my mother-tongue does have a kink of providing a very clear system to narrow things down verbally. It’s useful for work, but horrible for the use of common-sense- knowledge, and simple deduction. That may be a point where all the human beings in all these countries think, act, and comprehend things differently, and even have gifts they all are just taking for granted, including me.
    Would be great if these gifts could be identified to use them for our all well-being and development.
