ABOUT

About? More like Abbott, amirite?

But no, in seriousness, Australian politics, and world politics for that matter, are rather bleak right now.

It's important to be able to laugh at things that are terrible. 

But it's more important to do something about them.

If you're pissed off about the state of the world right now (and you should be), then do something about it.


And I don't just mean online. Hashtags and memes aren't going to save the world. 

Actually go outside and meet with people. Join a union, form a union, write angry letters to your MPs/senators/employers/newspapers, join a political party, make a political party, campaign, stand for office, make a stupid computer game, write political songs, go to a rally, put up inflammatory posters about lacklustre political representation, start writing for your university magazine or local newspaper, talk to your colleagues and friends, occupy public spaces, learn your rights, stand up for your rights, call out racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia and classism when you see it, and demand more from a political class who lament about the burden of "the welfare state" while accepting huge donations from destructive industries and using tax loopholes for their own advantage. 

Remember, our politicians are supposed to represent us, the people, not tax-dodging corporations who exploit their workers, not Apple, not 7-Eleven, not Grill'd, not CUB, not Coles, not banks, not lobby groups, not the IPA, not Rupert Murdoch, not Gina Rinehart, but the people who elect them into office.
