The classic model of capitalism is that businesses compete for customers in terms of quality of services. But this is no longer a valid model, as nowadays businesses compete largely in terms of advertising.

Advertising is a form of lying, it’s just that it is a form of lying we have grudgingly come to accept. So far most of his, life Scott Morrison has been a professional liar.

Unfortunately, because advertising is such an important aspect of the modern economy, Scott Morrison probably regards his career of deception as meritorious. But it is also hard to believe that he sees his political spin as any different.

    It’s a beautiful view from where I sit.
    Time to remake, rejuvenate ‘the bubble’!
    My own personal bubble with all the things I want & ONLY what I want in it.. I used to teach this to my groups & fantastic for kids. It’s perfect time to clear the path of these pillagers!
    So .. perfect timing. Right place, right time…
