Hans Lovejoy, editor

Given recent events, The Echo will now fall into line with the wishes of the government and police.

The brave officers who used laws – that were also supported by Labor – to invade the ABC offices did so because of national security concerns. Henceforth, the words national security shall be never questioned again, owing to new government policy and operational matters.

As such, all news content that would embarrass MP Dutton, PM Morrison and any Liberal-National MP will now be redacted.

Key new government policy also includes promoting traditional patriarchal roles and a clear hierarchy, which harks back to Australia’s glorious past.

Additionally, ‘corruption’ by public officials will now not be questioned by anyone. A new language frame of corruption will be used, which is a corruption of purity, not law.

The independence of Australia’s legal system will now be under a full and extensive review, with a likely outcome being that all courts will be required to adhere to Liberal-National policy.

Science and eduction shall be redirected towards the new government policy of enhancing the cause of a dominant and triumphant nation.

Education that leans towards sympathising with the enemy will be redacted and fall under immediate review.

This also applies to gender-fluid and feminism studies, as it conflicts with the government’s first stated aim of maintaining strong patriarchal roles.

Unpatriotic media claim that the government lies.

This is incorrect; everything is viewed through the prism of emotion, not truth.

The reality, as perceived by the majority of the population, is that the left, unions, intellectuals, and minorities are all unpatriotic and threaten national security.

Unpatriotic critics may say these measures are extreme, yet there are sound underpinnings to this new government policy.

It harks back to the Greek ages, many thousands of years ago. In Book 8 of Plato’s Republic, Socrates argues that people are not naturally led to self-governance, but rather seek a strong leader to follow.

Democracy, according to Plato, is a self-undermining system whose very ideals lead to its own demise.

Joseph Goebbels (1897–1945) said, ‘This will always remain one of the best jokes of democracy – that it gave its deadliest enemies the means by which it was destroyed’.

A unified commitment to the policies of the elected strong leader can only provide cohesion and prosperity for society.

That is why it also so important to support without question the Greens majority in local government. They clearly have everyon’e best interests at heart.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. My dear Editor, I thought you may just like to hear
    The Cacique address to the Taos Pueblo…

    There is no such thing as a simple thing. One drops
    a pebble into a pool but the ripple travels far. One
    picks up a little stone in the mountains, one called
    Lagrimas de Cristo – & look, it is shaped like a star.
    Nothing is simple & alone. We are not separate &
    alone. The breathing mountains, the living stones,
    each blade of grass, the clouds, the rain, each
    star, the beasts, the birds & invisible spirits of the
    air – we are all one, indivisible. Nothing that any of
    us does but affects us all. I would have you
    consider how it fits into the pattern of the whole –
    how far it’s influence may spread – & what it may
    grow into. Yes, there is a protecting Red Alert
    out there. Chin up!
