Somehow, as we entered the new millennia, we lost our way. The land of the ‘fair go’ became the land of the ‘no go’ and ‘no know’ where we go to war to protect our supposed ‘values’, yet at the same time call those fleeing conflict or persecution ‘illegal’ and try to refuse them refuge. As the world around us changes we cling to the past, using our privileged position to maintain a diet of shallow entertainment and ignorance. In an age where information and knowledge has never been more accessible we have lost our ability to think and are seduced by the snake oil solutions of politicians, preachers and pissants. Welcome to the age of the new dumb.
