In response (to my response) Tim Harrington I fear will never be convinced that the world is not run by ‘lefties’ regardless of the facts and the overwhelmingly obvious fact that current world powers are run by right wing extremists.
As the right has been in control for some time now globally, shouldn’t they be held largely responsible for our current Armageddon?
In relation to The Guardian being a hub for left wing propaganda, The Guardian along with The Observer (it’s sister paper published on Sundays) won nine Press Awards in 2018 and four in 2019. The Press Awards celebrate the BEST of UK National journalism, that is organised by the The Society of Editors who are ALL obviously left wing ‘deplorables’ as well?
Their journos have won many ‘Specialist Awards’ for outstanding and independent journalism and they rely on significant funding from ‘average’ citizens within the UK and across the world… all lefties no doubt.
Regarding Fairfax media which I detailed in my last letter, it merged with Channel 9. This can hardly be seen as ‘left wing’.
I’m not offended to be labelled ‘left wing’, as you said my comments aligned with those of The Guardian, the ABC, The Echo and Mungo… I have never been so thrilled and honoured. You put a smile on my face, which I haven’t managed over the past four months of unprecedented bushfires and tragedy. That’s probably a ‘leftie plot’ as well?
If leftie means actively doing something about our environmental crisis, human rights, and escalating social justice issues – then burn me at the stake!
Your side always bleats about the ‘left’ championing these issues and taking the credit, but guess what? Your side usually does nothing. So yes, I am one of the ‘deplorables’ (nasty language). Kooky enough to believe that logging native forests does not save koalas, that the Great Barrier Reef needs immediate protection (11,000 ships pass through it annually) that the Murray-Darling Basin is stuffed because not enough ‘lefties’ were involved.
There needs to be a huge shift, we’re already in the sixth mass extinction. We can no longer conduct business as usual. Hello! Our planet is our life support system.
