I sometimes wonder about whether our perspective on world affairs is at all incisive. I mean how have we got ourselves into the sort of messes that we are presently faced with? Global warming, food shortages, an unending Middle East peace conflict, AIDS, the total exploitation of the poor to pander to the vagaries of the rich (that is another way of saying 'paying Philipinos 20c cents an hour to make sneakers that cost $200 to buy'). How can the Murray River die?
or am I just having a bad day?
