Jugding on appearances only

Instead of using his considerable intelligence to make helpful comments,  the opposition's spokesman  on Agriculture (JoelF ) and his colleagues drum up a storm by suggesting the busy incumbents are not doing enough . Too easy.

The very low price offered to some dairy farmers in Murray Goulburn and Fonterra this month is of grave concern to all those who follow the plight of farmers closely.
Barnaby Joyce is now one of very few whose considered approach shows that he , unlike Joel ,  knows that helping keep them stay resilient is one of the largest challenges any country can face . Barnaby  is engaged every day with its complexity.

Fitzibbon , like Ludwig , will be welcomed on very few farms for his carelessness .

Yet that resilient style of the incumbents doesn't stop the unengaged carrying on with quickfix solutions when it suits them - all in the grand old name of best intention( - which wise men know must ALWAYS  be checked for its sus elements)
I remember at University  some of the best minds would argue about how best to help Agriculture with its strange supply and demand curves .

Our Professor Lloyd and the Gruens ( Melbourne Uni) stood tall .
The taller economics building nearby housed smaller professors whose  fixed margins , planning and profit curves practice would bore any of us to tears . Where are those blokes now when you need them? We are not as clever as we think because the complexities of production and people  economic in the  real world don't seem to interest the parties.    
Maybe we should move the seat of governance up the hill to Parkville and keep the old noisy one a sa relic .The parties are behaving like  the move from democracy to Aristocarcy makes sense - oh dear !

 Its tough for anyone who wants to talk the real complexities of ecomia - who resists the modern theories of the gods of globalization and pure efficiency as the wine of heaven .  As far as i can see Barnaby Joyce  is on his own against a sea of free marketeers-- well heeled marketeers on the drip feed even ! . Heaven help us

I say if anyone says again " farmers need to be more efficient " i say rubbish careless talk . They  care more than the city does for their country and they have to bear the dangerous and unnecessary tension created simply by the silly insistence of mere efficiency .( threatens resilience building)  .

 At least our children haven't followed this false faith and started paying more  for eggs and milk.

So before YOU open Your mouth

Ask yourself if you and many on the armchair bench aren't part of the problem 

Read Telecom 2000 report and .Experts in 1975 described some of what is now common in the media as a very serious mental illness .

Governments are not working - Victimhood is on the nose

TRUMP  may not be thinking ( ie pedantically -the progressives problem) , but he knows what the people are thinking .( metaphorically - the big picture persons frame )   Its not working

Those in current power ( the progressives) who 'think" that progress is about following the market and running the country on the shallow virtues of mere sentiment  are in for a shock - a reality check is coming for them .
The political philosophy of the left ( and even some of the new right) has always been reactionary. Even though, on the surface its changed,  its morphed from marxism attacking greed to poor me hiding behind greed  . So the impression that the progressives are " moving on , may just be an impression ' There is not much change in reality. If we are to seek full picture we must face the fact that the lefts picture of heaven on earth involves like the old - A father figure . A generous governor .
The left love to call it  "moving on" , but whose kidding who ?   Where is the Big picture?

The progressives think their ideal is  "evolutionary " but evolutionary  doesn't carry mean we all get carried off to heaven . The real biological process has limits but even natural selection has a warning  to all who make it god ( it produces and explains everything.  evolution , in such a use is clearly a faith,
You can't have a "moving on "philosophy without the risk that some unworthy edifices built by natural selection of the components will become extinct because they are naturally very weak .

In other words not everything works even under the influence of natural selection  

If plagiarists and children were only to admit they picked up gems and called them their own we might have metanoia , instead of paranoia. Fully baked and working not half baked and in the dust bin of so many incomplete views of what evolution means for society ( Hitler Stalin Polpot all used the idea still so popular to advance the case for the " strong over the weak " .

Can we afford another experiment based on the philosophy of evolution, the religion of evolution as the creator , the deterministic strictures of evolution as God  ( cf reality of evolution in adaption)  Clearly not , In One hundred years its caused a holocaust of unsustainable attempts at making like better for noone . Even allowing for the fact that its been the excuse for tyrants to run their own power games no one should forget how they retained that power ( power of ideas )

Final failure  is what happens and is demonstrated to happen throughout history with idealism that doesn't work ,
Which is it boys ?

Having  to eat their own words that 'morality is bunk ',  the progressives  can't NOW face the fact that their political philosophy is downright depressing shallow and patronising  . So many in power and "in church "are not thinking because their political philosophy doesn't allow them to think.

Many are stuck as deterministic materialists   YES they have adopted some "virtues " Not deep enough though to cut any deeper than scratching. Deep enough in their own myopia to make a splash in their  own little birdbaths  .But there is no future in crap, even if you currently hold power .esp COSTLY unsustainable crap 

If you want some freedom from this intellectual gaol ( which relies on taxation and drip feed )  don't vote for TRUMP , and those who chase the popular,  or desperate measures .

 Follow someone who just tells the truth .  
The truth will set you free

Governments are not working - even conservation has a handout mentality

Most of the growing budget in handouts for conservation purposes is not only unsustainable, its not right.  Our taxes badly used.Its popular but that doesn't make it right . 
This big budget should be going to provide jobs for our young people in helping better manage and plan land water and plant use. Instead of that its being eaten up in tokenistic grants and advice and action that's not only skin deep but also often not appropriate in the site. Sound conservation is place driven not name driven ,,,,like the technological tokens below 
Take the current inducements - bulbs, panels and insulation ---they  cost the earth but every one loves em so they stay . 
We as a culture will be judged as overly self focused rich token generation conservationists who pay ourselves for being good.  or thinking we are doing good 

Everybody is going to church singing the right choruses about what they put in the plate ,but ignoring the big real world problems outside .
We can sing psalms about the end of coal without realizing that the little bits above will do nothing to get us toast in the morning .

And while we bask in the glow of our righteousness Peter Garrett at least knows that the hills are still burning - enough to send us broke

The low view of human nature inherent in the market driven mindset means you may have to pay him to be good . The unsustainability of that idea , let alone its implications in bigger government transfers and nannyism is enough to send those who don't adopt the prison view the nuthouse  or to vote TRUMP --i truly hope NOT
