"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

Merry Xmas « Previous | |Next »
December 25, 2008

Have a great day everyone. Thanks for dropping by, commenting and discussing politics and policy issues during 2008. It's been a great year blogging wise. Blogging is slowly gaining acceptance in Australia, despite the resistance.

Looking forward to many more discussions and debates on public and political issues after the Xmas holidays. It sure has been an eventful year, what with the crisis in financial capitalism and its impact of the global economy. That has made it a watershed year. When coupled with climate change (less rain, the melting of the Arctic sea ice, and temperature increases of 2 degrees are effectively already in the system) 2008 was an epochal year.

The Rudd government delivered ion the economic slowdown. It's response to climate change was characterised by short term politics and a culture of failure.

and you too Gary. The family came down from Adelaide for Xmas lunch.

Ours was Xmas dinner on the balcony at Victor Harbor. After an afternoon walk + photos at Port Elliot (very quiet) we had duck + quince + lentils (French provincal dish) with a sparkling Shiraz from Bremerton from Langhorne Creek. It was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Some of the family (the Canberra wing) are coming down for a barbecue on Saturday.

and a happy new year.

I hope everyone had a great Xmas. All the best for the New Year
