Facing the Depression:

A Fascist Police State, or Economic Development?

The world these days, particularly after September 11, and in the face of the global economic collapse recounted in this issue's lead article is a rather terrifying place. If you are a bit older, say, middle-aged or more, think back to "the way things used to be", and ask yourself "What went wrong?", "How did this happen to us?"

The answer is: You did it. Yes, that's right: You did it. How? By "minding my own business", and therefore allowing the affairs of our nation, and of the world, to go to Hell.

All populists, as well as others seeking to evade responsibility, will always denounce "the politicians", or anyone else "in authority", for the evils which befall them. The reality is, as the great Classical tragedies of Shakespeare and Friedrich Schiller make clear, that the problem is never the leaders of the population, but the population itself, which chooses such leaders. The "leaders", with the rare exceptions that from time to time have pulled mankind up out of the mud, reflect nothing so precisely, as the prejudices of those who have selected them. Take economic rationalism, which most Australians would admit is destroying this country. What is it based upon, except "me, myself, and mine"—a complete abnegation of the common good? Yet, if you have been "minding my own business" during the past two decades of economic rationalism, keeping your "head down, and tail up", how is your thinking really any different from those who plundered this nation?
