The political Right of the Australian media like their heroes to be in neat uniforms; preferably in sports or military ones. When a hero is unshaved, articulate, living in a tent, dressed in any old garb and has no corporate sponsorship, that seems to be a big problem for them.
I'm writing this post after safely returning to our home tonight having spent the day with friends and community keeping away from the Blampied fire path. It has only been a few years since the town was last approached by wild fire.
What will it take to make the Right understand that climate chaos, shareholder aspiration and corporate intransigence to energetic and ecological consumption are synonymous things?
