Soul Murder

“Soul murder” — not a phrase one comes across every day.   By Luigi Novi / Wikimedia Commons, CC BY 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=7815388 Sir Roger was listening to the ABC Science Show today. It was Robyn Williams’ homage to Oliver Sacks (Awakenings, The Man Who Thought His Wife Was a Hat, Seeing Voices, Uncle Tungsten etc. etc. […]

Liberal Party

  Feel free …   No really. Pin it, fb it, tweet it, email it. With Sir Roger’s blessing. Just don’t join the liberal party really. 

Rentier Socialists

  Just (sorry) Sir Roger thinks IT’S TIME to refer back to the recent squabble about certain t-shirts and heap some shit on those who assert ownership of the commonly used English phrase “It’s time”.  Universities once, in all the centuries up to but not including this one, were laboratories for learning and thinking, experiencing […]

Democracy – Dancing for Joy?

About 300 years ago, like a smouldering kapok pillow, a massive revolution began its slow burn.  A scientific revolution. A social political revolution led by great minds. Newton, Spinoza, Locke, Voltaire, Rousseau,  Diderot, d’Alembert, Montesquieu. Hume. Robert Burns. Thomas Payne. The Age of Enlightenment surged on and rational, egalitarian thought swept everything from its path. Except religion, of course. You’ve got to give […]

A Moron in a Hurry – Part 4 (Final)

Drawing by the extraordinary Doctor King .  Men and Whitlam of Australia, not to forget the moron in a hurry, it’s time to bid farewell to old plinth-bound, red-taped Goth the Whittler, his soul, his vision and his legacy chained and frozen in stone within the walls of the Wiblam Edifice, protected by the Hooded […]

A Moron in a Hurry – Part 3

. . .. Previously on Moron in a Hurry:  Sir Roger, strapped to the rack by the Madam Intimidatrix of the Hooded Brethren of the Gruff Wiblam Edifice, shouted that “Freedom is a state of mind”, wondering where he’d heard it before, whereupon his bonds evaporated and the spirit of Wiblam was upon him and […]

A Moron in a Hurry – Part 2

     GOTH THE WHITTLER EDIFICE Legal traps and electronic security  are secreted everywhere. Instructions for grovelling are necessary for the uninitiated and unimpressed    So as you know Sir Roger has been stood over by the rozzers of the Whitlam Industry, accused of the most nefarious crimes in the most aggressive tones. Almost as […]

A Moron in a Hurry – Part 1

WARNING: POLITICAL DISCUSSION PROTECTED  BY SECTIONS 7 AND 24 OF THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION. Sir Roger (or at least his amanuensis) was harried recently by the legal department of a minor university which happens to accommodate a “controlled entity” bearing the name of a once terrifying but now sadly faded and largely ignored (for those who […]

What is Arpa Narpa Narp?

A guide to Federal Electioneering Q: What is “Arpa Narpa Narp“? A: Where everyone’s bills are going, according to folksy, down with the biddies Tony Abbott today. Strangely enough Sir Roger don’t recall his bills ever going anywhere else over all his long years. Except at Col’s, where they’re going Darndarn (Proiza Sadarn). Or not. […]

Going Atomic, the Final Solution: MAD Abbott Ups the Ante on Boat People

In a stunningly breathtaking move to protect us from the cunning boat people’s terrorist plot to pollute Australians’ precious bodily fluids, Tony Abbott has just upped the ante in the desperate arms race against evil refugees. The man who would be Prime Minister has embraced the Cold War MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) policy, announcing that […]

Life in Australia

Robert – a self-styled “foreigner” to our shores – is most upset to have been hoaxed by the false promise and dashed hopes of life in Australia. A few days ago Robert commented on an ancient post here at Values Australia and his comment was upsetting. Sir Roger cannot bear the thought of another’s pain […]

The Next Big “Sorry”

Want a long-range heads-up? The question we should be asking Abbott and Gillard and all of their various immigration spokespeople right now is this: How do you feel about the inevitability that – possibly in your lifetime – a future Prime Minister of Australia will stand up in Parliament to make a heartfelt apology on […]

Mountain Manifesto of Australian Values Stave the Fourth

Part Four of Sir Roger Migently’s exposition of Australian values as revealed during his epiphany on The Mountain…

Australian Values

The Migently Mountain Manifesto   Australian values have lately been enthusiastically asserted by some Australians and Sir Roger has been much impressed – in much the same way a washed-up prize fighter feels the repeated impressions of his opponents’ fists in his guts.   These assertions of “Australian values” tend to be energetically debated in […]

Malcolm Turnbull: Next Prime Minister?

  Sir Roger believes Malcolm Turnbull could easily be the next Prime Minister of Australia. What do you think? Here’s why: 1) The coalition and the right wing media will bring too much pressure on Julia Gillard about the Slater and Gordon quagmire – either facts or compelling implications – so that either she can’t […]
