ScoMo and the mob

Ronald Wolff, Ocean Shores

Whingeing about ScoMo, Peter Dutton and the rest of the Mob fails to address the underlying problem. The Australian public generally is (1) uninformed, by choice (all politicians are crooks, politics don’t matter); (2) brainwashed by Murdoch disinformation on TV and in newspapers; (3) not enrolled to vote; (4) enrolled but don’t vote (penalties enforced); (5) voting informally. Party pre-slection has become quite undemocratic. Candidates are chosen in backrooms and presented to voters as the only choices. Even Greens pre-select in elitist fashion. There is no invitation to the rank and file to participate.

Opening candidate selection to the public and voter education are essential to achieving good government. What we have today is a dog-and-pony show deception that we have democracy.

  1. You got it, Ocean Shores. Demotic dithering in place
    of democracy is the dis-ease of the times. Backroom
    decisions make me weary of all.
