Political Truths Hidden in Plain Sight

A few recent articles have perfectly put into words my opinion of the Labor government. It’s painfully disappointing how shortsighted the public is, in terms of Labor’s achievements and ambitions. Sam de Brito and Robert Macklin say it better than I ever could:

In Mining for Truth, de Brito asks how mining companies convinced Working Families and Average Joes that taxing the filthy rich, and spreading that wealth to the needy, was a terrible idea.

And in The Case for Keeping Julia, Macklin reflects on all the successes Labor have implemented with a minority government and a bullying Opposition Leader, while the Liberals have yet to release any palpable policies.

I highly recommend reading both these pieces. The obviousness and sensibility in their words is astounding.
