“This is an immensely positive book … a potential ignition point for the revolution we must have if our descendants are to survive the twenty first century” – Emeritus Prof Bob Douglas, AO
Once, Australia was a world leader, resilient, bold, socially progressive.
We set about giving everyone a fair go – the vote for women, a living wage, support for battlers. Governments worked for us, built things and made our lives better. Then we dropped the ball. We thought like colonials. We cringed.
Lately we have descended to farce.
Our politics is corrupt and broken. We are divided and fearful. Our economy stumbles along, hollowed out and enriching the rich. Governments abdicate their job and attack the battlers.
