I may even do a little series on the Kafkaesque absurdities I see on the ABC news in the morning.
Today? In the context of ISIS fucking on people protecting ancient ruins in Syria:
Host: “What do you make of this fanatical madness?”*
Archaeologist: “I am not going to comment on that.”
Even the ABC news is very quickly becoming a brazen and transparent champion of weird Australia’s weird form of capitalist fascism. There was at least, long ago, the pretence that the ABC was scientific and compassionate.
*ISIS obviously is fanatical and mad, I have to put this disclaimer in here because people tend to twist my words when I do not make it patently clear what I am trying to say. My point is that the language is so extreme and ideological that it is silly and isn’t newsworthy from a representative of the TV channel.
