ACT opinions

Posted on: 23 October 2012

Politics and death

Feeling equally deserving of a break from politics as candidates involved in the recent ACT election, I thought I’d also give readers a break. Much as I have a great interest in politics, as no doubt do many readers, with the election having ended I felt both readers and myself deserved a break just as much as the candidates, whether winners or losers.

During this break I will take the opportunity to catch up on events. Unfortunately, and much as I would like to divorce myself completely from politics during this short break and much as I try, I find it impossible to escape politics.

I am not alone in thinking this, because even if you say you don’t get involved in politics and don’t think about them, politics is the prison in which everyone is incarcerated and from which the only escape is death. The fact that politics may be the instrument of death means nothing as they will find out. The prison of death has an implacable governor who allows no release.

Nevertheless, politics can make the road to death pleasant or unpleasant and occasionally a mixture of both. However, some societies more than others give people the opportunity to maximise the pleasant and minimise the unpleasant through what is known as an electoral system. In brief an electoral system allows people to select and elect people who say they can make life pleasant.

Unfortunately, people often make mistakes when choosing the people who say they will make life pleasant by turning it into something very unpleasant in which state it remains until the peoples’ opportunity to make a change crops up again.

Sadly it has to be said, people often make the same mistake twice in a row and end up enduring more than one period of unpleasantness.
By the way, not until after Saturday this week will the people of the ACT know whether the people they have selected will make life more pleasant.
