Comment of the Year

Posted June 11, 2013 into Blunty by John Birmingham

Today's Blunty, about the coming annihilation of the ALP gives us this comment from Mintslice, which should probably be graven into rock somewhere:

The fact that K Rudd is most loved by people who have had nothing to do with him speaks volumes.

His baffling appeal among witless suburban voters reflects the reality that very few soccer moms or tradies at home watching The Block at night have had to deal with this kind of elite psychotic bureaucrat in their life times.

I have. He creeps me out on so many levels. Hes like Lord Varys from Game of Thrones without the balls.

I completely understand the ALP's apparent preference for self immolation.

Rudd was the master of his own demise - when, in the finest control freak elite public servant fashion he thought he could engineer a mining tax without consulting industry.

Any sane person might thing that people you are regulating can have some productive input into the process, even if they dont like the outcome, but this sneaky little prick thought he could just spring it on them - as if governing by surprise with an inner circle of 24 year olds is any way of running the country.

Hes been scuttling around in the dark like a cockroach ever since, spreading shit and disease in the hope that he'll be the last roach left after the fallout settles.

Mark Latham is completely right about this guy. Rudd is an evil little snake hiding behind Jesus - as the worst of them always do.

The "affable nerd" routine shouldn't fool anyone with a modicum of life experience - but we're talking swinging voters here - the very definition of brain death.

Rudd has done a remarkable thing - he's given me a sense of perspective that there is something worse than the appalling white trash baiting Frat Boy vibe of Tony Abbott.

While I agree that Rudd is a slimy prick, I don't think he'd be as damaging in the long term as 4 years of Abbott.

Hope Mintslice feels fucking awesome about the endless Abbott government. Cos that's what this little vendetta is going to get you. Talk about cutting off your fucking nose to spite your fucking face.

Every time one of these muppets gets up and whinges during the next 15-20 years of Abbott's reign, all we have to do is say "well you thought he'd be better than fucking Kevin".

This comment, and Latham's passionate observations on Q&A absolutely nails it. Rudd is a spiteful white-anter who holds his enemies in the ALP with more contempt than he does toward Abbott and his cronies. As our local bum waxer says, "Can't see the arse through the forest"

If no one ever voted differently we'd only need elections when the population had recycled enough to make it possible for a new government to elected. And people would only need to vote once in their lifetimes as no one would ever change their vote. Sounds legit.

I, on the other hand, vote for the party that I think has the best policies for the current climate, because I am a crazed lunatic.

'Swing voters' should not be confused with 'people who change their minds'.
It's parlance for 'people who live in a marginal seat'. More specifically it's "people who live in a marginal seat who don't give a shit about the rest of the coutnry as long as they get something for themselves"
Go back and watch some of the 'townhall' style debates from the previous election. "What's in it for me" asks the upper middle class white guy.

Mint Slice erred with the comparison to GoT's Lord Varys; Rudd is cast more in the mold of Littlefinger than the eunuch. Varys has pretensions of trying to do the right thing for Westeros, Littlefinger's only out for himself and everything he can get, and be damned to everyone else.

Abbott is definitely Joffrey. Imbecilic little toerag with no fucking clue how to wipe his own arse let alone run a nation. Julie Bishop is Queen Cersei, smirking from behind the scenes and egging him on. Malcolm Turnbull is the Imp. - 100 times smarter than either of those two fuckwits, and constantly shaking his head as to how they're cut from the same cloth.

The turd in the punchbowl here is that Gillard supporters believe that the deep fucking shithole the government is in is due to Rudd. It's epic denialism. People are latching onto Rudd because they can see the apocalyptic wipeout that is going to happen because the people that support the current PM don't see that the current PM is a pretty huge issue with a substantial part of the electorate. They've wound themselves up into a "things would just be better if Kevin hadn't existed". When the ALP is reduced to a rump they'll still be saying "it is Kevin's fault" because admitting that the problem is with Gillard would be admitting that something could have been done to stave off the most epic wipeout in Australian electoral history.

My alliegances are well known & occasionally parodied.

I've given this a great deal of thought, read & listened widely.

If one accepts the role of the opposition to be to bring down the government by any & all means, this opposition has been by far the most effective opposition in my memory. Once they disposed of Brendan they have dictated the agenda at every stage. Every single time the Government got a trot up, a witless one-liner would hobble the gov's inertia. While progressives wrung Our hands and bemoaned the complexity of policy decisions. The coalition would Ace the debate with an imbecillic "Stop the Boats," "Pink Batts" or "School Halls" line. Stupid and oversimplified it may have been, but it cut through. It sank into the consciousness of Joe Sixpack & Wendy Homemaker. We on the progressive side may blame the coalition's allies in the MSM; Jones, Bolt, etc, but truly it is the spin lab of the opposition's death star that deserve the credit.

If you want evidence, look back across the headlines, everytime the Slipper imbruglio was run, or a No Confidence motion was proposed, it was less than 24 hours after the Government started to get some inertia.

The good-natured co-operation of Kim Beazely is gone forever. From this point on oppositions will be character assasins, dirt merchants and libel ladlers, tearing at the living flesh of poor old lumbering Govosaurus. This bodes badly for the future of Aus Democracy. Bipartisanship may have been very poorly, but this fed opposition has killed it, buried it, cremated it.

The ALP deserves much of the criticism it has recieved for hopeless management and apalling delivery, but Australian's do not deserve the economic and cultural dark-ages we are about to be flung into. Blaming victims, villifying the weakest and least empowered in the community will just be a start.

Just remember Workplace Flexibility is code for anyone on less than 50K gets it in the arse.

Yeah, I'm pretty well through those 7 stages too. As someone dealing with the innards of govt (what was it that bismarck said?), I'd agree with the summary here and from mintslice's original post, as to how the work happened- ie, effectively dysfunctional under KR and quite functional (as functional as it gets, anyway) under JG.

I think, too, that the potential for the flat-earthers to be sitting on the right of the speaker should be scaring the bejesus out of more people than it clearly is.

I've had the same feeling about Kevin for some time now -- the fact that no matter how dire things look for the ALP, and how many polls say Kevin's their one hope of salvation, they keep not reappointing him leader. Why? Well, they've actually worked with him whereas we voters have only his PR-polished public persona to go on. That makes me think he can't be the jolliest guy to have for a boss; in fact, given the number of gold-plated political animals, opportunists and total arseholes in the parliamentary ALP, he's gotta be something really special in the a-hole stakes to earn that much self-destructive dislike from them.

And then Mark bloody Latham stands up and starts bucketing him! Holy Jebus, if the biggest arsehole in living ALP memory hates him maybe Kevin ain't so bad after all...

And for the record, I wouldn't vote for Rudd in a fit and neither would many of my swinging voter mates.

Seriously I don't see myself forgiving the ALP for bringing about an Abbott govt. I appreciate the eye on the policy reform agenda they've pushed, I really do, and maybe that makes it an essentially unsolvable problem (doing really beneficial stuff and getting re-elected). I don't buy the "incompetence" accusations because conservatives ALWAYS call stuff they have an ideological objection to incompetent (Keynes was discredited doncha know). But I can and will blame them for not taking the fight to the bastards, ramming the policy success down Abbotts glistening, sweaty throat.

I reckon independent thinkers who are want good government should all be voting for the Labor Party.
Observing human history, countries seem to go better if there is a change in government about once a decade and there is a strong opposition.
The Lib/Nat Coalition will be the new government, and I think the time is about right. Yes, unfortunately Abbott thinks and speaks as if he has a low I.Q. Maybe it was the boxing. But, he will be Prime Minister. That box is ticked. The task of independent thinker, I reckon, is to tick the second box. To try to deliver some sort of opposition.

I don't think I'm quite ready to face the idea of an Abbott government. My cousin tells me he's made it through the 7 stages of grief to acceptance, but I'm not there yet. I don't give a fuck about whether GIllard or Rudd leads the ALP, though it does seem to me that Rudd was more about symbol and the flash and bang of spectacle, while Gillard is more about rolling up your sleeves and doing the policy work and trying to get it right. Sure, it's been crippled by a negative opposition. But it's a mistake to pretend that is anything new.

Australian conservative oppositions have ALWAYS cast Labor governments as illegitimate in some way. [rant elided... too little or too much? could never do the subject justice in finite space]

To me the central point of an Abbott govt will be an extraordinary intellectual cowardice, based around a set of ideological convictions, leading to an unwillingness to consider any issue on its own merits in terms of outcomes and evidence.

S.M. Stirling asserts...

Posted June 13, 2013

"unwillingness to consider any issue on its own merits"

-- dude, what you're saying is that the other guy has an ideological agenda, but you just judge things rationally and objectively.

Pardon me while I rupture myself laughing.

Dude, politics is nothing but ideological agendas. Google "confirmation bias".

Nobody reasons to a political conviction; they pick their destination due to subconscious emotional needs and then dream up reasons for it.

Reason is just emotion's bitch.

In other words, all you or anyone else has is an opinion when values or identity are in question (which is what politics are all about), and an opinion is like an arsehole: everyone's got one, few bear close examination.

So where is truth? Answer: there isn't any! It's opinions and arseholes and arseholes with opinions all the way down.

w from brisbane mumbles...

Posted June 13, 2013

"politics is nothing but ideological agendas."

Don't think so. Unless, pride and greed, our old friends that motivate us all, count as ideological convictions. A lot of motivations are purely careerist or just wanting to beat the people on the other team.
Hopefully, there is some truth in the aim of the greatest good for the greatest number. Or, the greatest good for the greatest number of your key backers.
However, the Liberal/National coalition is stymied by ideological right wing biases.
The Labor Party is stymied by having no ideological convictions. The Labor Party is a strange dysfunctional grouping of people who are not in the Liberal/National coalition.

damian mumbles...

Posted June 13, 2013

"You're saying is that the other guy has an ideological agenda, but you just judge things rationally and objectively."

Actually I'm not saying that at all. I can't claim never to drift into that sort of statement-- and I think anyone who does make such a claim is kidding themselves. But it is also something I try to be pretty sensitive to, more so than (I think) most, certainly most here.

There are actually evidence based approaches to public policy, where people use science and the intellectual tradition to weigh options in terms of outcomes. They exist for all sorts of policy areas including ones that are non-controversial and typically non-political in many jurisdictions. In the case of some areas (gun laws for instance) they are non-controversial in many places but remain very controversial in some places.

At this point in history in Australian politics the mainstream of the conservative side take a position that is slightly stronger than they historically have. There are many services that provide some sort of public good, in which various levels of government are involved, and many private sector organisations are involved. To me the sensible approach to service delivery is evidence based and should be about what delivers the level of service to the community that it thinks it should have, both in terms of being able to afford it and in terms of managing it effectively. The best answer is usually some kind of mix between public and private organisations, working together to achieve positive outcomes. Both sides of politics here have traditionally seen things this way. At the moment the conservative side take an ideological position (based in the roots of neo-liberalism in moral philosophy) that if a service can be provided by the private sector, it should be, and the level and quality of the service are irrelevant. In general a service shouldn't exist at all if someone isn't making money from it.

I think you're saying that differing from that ideological position is itself an ideological position. I disagree. I would suggest that an old-school leftie who thinks all services should be provided by government has the opposite ideological position that you are looking for there. I also think that the hard-bitten people who spend their time at the pointy end of service delivery have a view that is somewhat more relevant and interesting than any cheap relativism some armchair stormtropper has pulled from his own arsehole. And that is to put it rather mildly.

S.M. Stirling would have you know...

Posted June 14, 2013

I think you're saying that differing from that ideological position is itself an ideological position.

-- yeah, and I'm right, too. I'm saying that there isn't anything but ideological positions when it comes to deciding what to want.

What you're complaining about is that there used to be an ideological consensus with which you basically agreed, and arguments were about details, but now there isn't, and you have to see your side trampled in the dirt if they lose an election.

You can't see your own assumptions; they're like water to a fish. They're just so obviously... true. How could anyone who isn't stupid, ignorant, evil or fanatical disagree?

Eg., you're assuming that it's just "reasonable" and "reality-based" to care most about, say, parcel delivery.

But it isn't. It's just your priorities, set by your ideological agenda. Other people care more about other things. Set by their agendas.

You can prove that a diesel engine gets better mileage. You can't prove that wanting A is "better" than wanting B. Wants just are.

What you care about is precisely your ideology.

Which is fair enough; everyone's got one. But don't try to privilege yours. It ain't a hegemonic metanarrative.

And a service provider cares about service provision above all other things. What a surprising coincidence!

I like this idea. But my own bitter experience with a similar idea may provide you with the success that eluded me.

Ten years ago I filled out all the paper work necessary to launch the American Super Villain political party. At first things were really great. Sure, it appealed to patriotic super villains, but the concept also spoke to the average punter who, deep down, was a super villain at heart.

Then came the convention where nominating party leaders headed the agenda. Well, you can imagine the in fighting, back stabbing, poisoning, death rays, earthquake machines and nuclear blackmail that ensured. It was a catastrophe.

Don't let that happen to you. If you start an Australian Super Villain political party, make sure you control the party structure and nominating mechanism so that the party itself is a straw man for your personal megalomaniacal ambitions. After all, there can only be one, eh?

Good luck, mate. I'll let you borrow one of my death rays if you need one ( and who doesn't these days?).

And maybe the ALP needs the clean-out that will come with a rout - get some fresh blood in, instead of the party hacks that have fkd everything up. Yeah, I know, I'm dreaming - Feeney for Batman anyone? But it's dream or despair.

As far as I'm concerned, both the ALP and the LNP are as bad as each other.
The late run Kevin appears to be making is desperation personified. His toxicity knows no bounds. But Abbott is the real worry. He is going to push his conservative religious agenda as far to the right as he can. And MSM will be right there, pushing along side him. It is a truly frightening prospect.
