Anyone thinking that the Libs' penchant for politicising the coppers is fair enough might want to take a look at "The Hillbilly Dictator" by Evan Whitton.


The book is available free online.




Quote

Fitzgerald QC showed how easy it is for a democracy to become an authoritarian state in which corruption and injustice are not just tolerated but elevated to the commonplace.
The first edition of Hillbilly Dictator shows how it happened and how they got away with it for nearly twenty years. This updated edition reveals something perhaps even more disturbing: how perennial defects in the legal system effectively encourage the corrupt and organised criminals, both white collar and black.

I'm sure you've heard some stories then..... if I think about it too much I'll get depressed.


Is there something you'd like to unburden yourself with this windy Friday afternoon? :(

Damn straight. And what have we learned from the Joh era?

Sweet fuck all, going by the Obeid shit.

Bugger all going by the Berangaroo shit.

People don't seem to comprehend that democracy is precious, and that democracy is fragile.

They take it for granted. They bitch about having to vote ffs!
