The aggressive tactics of what I now think of as the Dutton Government has overwhelmed Australians, enabling it to get away with anything that suits its purposes.
This cannot happen unchallenged.
In an interview at the recent Byron Writers Festival Marcus Zusak author of The Book Thief summed the book up thus, and I paraphrase ‘Hitler destroyed people with words. She (Liesel Meminger, the book thief) stole the words back.’
Today the Australian government destroys people with words and actions.
Politicians are our servants. We are not their whipping boys.
It’s time we stood up to this morally bankrupt government and stole the words back to set an honest agenda ensuring Australia returns to an even keel.
Changing the agenda my necessitate civil disobedience because politicians ignore us.
