2017. It has been a year of madness like no other. America elected a President like no other. Cardinal Pell is returning home in an effort to restore his memory. Newspapers are under threat. Human rights are constantly under threat. And truth finds it difficult to get a guernsey in this digital age. The AFL is attempting to show moral leadership that Canberra has been incapable of providing for quite a few years now. Asylum seekers remain incarcerated on islands, having been useful for governments wanting to retain power. Although Canberras spin doctors may have to start looking elsewhere as the public can only remain gullible for so long. The public has turned away from the major parties. Theyd prefer to watch brilliant footballers goal scoring rather than mediocre players in Canberra pointscoring.
