The Prime Minister's 2020 summit will conclude today and its clear its been a great success. The summiteers propose we ban smoking, increase tax on alcohol, make fitness compulsory and of course more money for the arts. Thats just for starters because we are going to become a republic, have a bill of rights and sign a treaty with the Aboriginals. I think its been a very worthwhile summit and its good we managed to hear the great minds of Australia. All the government need to do now is implement the complete opposite of what has been proposed and its bound to win the next election.
From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
