Blackest Night

It is a sad day today. Standing on a podium of division, voicing proudly a stance of intolerance and ignorance, Tony Abbott won Australia over. Sadder than his victory is what his victory says about Australia. As a nation we are imbecilic. Our grasp of economics and the long term effects of social policy are in deficit. As a a people, as a whole, we are our own worst enemy.

I am in the minority on this opinion, which is something that has been counted. Time will make fools of the rest of you, and as Abbott shifts the blame you will swallow what he says. You will deny your fault in this. That's who we are as a nation.

To those who want to see change,  I ask that in moving forward you be analytical and logical, and learn as much as you can. Reason and honesty are our only recourse, because we cannot afford to be undermined. Be consistent, but not blindly so. Fact will be obscured, and we must seek it out. Be wary.

I've turned to the Lantern on this one.

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power...
Green Lantern's Light!
