A public responsibility

Knowledge is not just a private matter.

When you have knowledge, you have a public responsibility. You can’t let people walk into traps, or be taken advantage of, without sounding a warning.

There is a lot of misleading information, as well as hollow promises in politics.

Like for example child, old age and health care, education, wages and work conditions, ethnic, sexual and religious discrimination, NDIS, climate change, carbon build-up and so on.

But in the end it boils down to what can be achieved realistically.

Economy is not everything, but regardless of which political party is in, it is playing an important role.
