Could it be that Byron is ready for a good colonic? A colonic would clean out the cronies, flush out the dysfunctional ogres, rebuild community to a level of real safety and togetherness and finally harness an example and practice of living in a civil society.  

The principles of a civil society could aid decision makers who have to struggle with the split vision of money versus the will of the people – democracy. It is simple. Check out Google. Ask ‘what are the defining characteristics of a civil society?’ There is something for everyone. Personally, I like ‘ethics and solidarity’.    

Without the colonic Byron runs the risk of self-imploding on its own shit and this plays right into the hands to the likes of the shitty Murdoch Press!  

It is a beautiful place and deserves all of the respect that Mother Earth freely offers.
