It will be economically rocky initially, but if we knuckle down it will be bounteous — and Chevron may even drop a few dollars in the pot. There will be no beauty except that which is mass produced, but it will be full of other trickle down goodies, mostly made in China. Beauty, dreams, personal dignity and all the things that make us human are at stake.
We need to stop responding to this hegemonic nonsense in its dysfunctional language and find a new way of talking about who we are and what we do that makes some sense in not economic but simple human terms. For too long we have been encouraged to turn away from treating the public realm as place for social improvement, compassion, understanding and change. By turning our backs on our values and replacing them with individualism, we have succeeded in dissocialising civic pain, stifling ambition and are slowly ripping the soul from our society.

No more carping on about what the arts are worth please. Extremely articulated description of the frustration we all feel. Obviously my brother raided my gene pool! Oh gosh. But your assertion that hegemony is somehow the result of conspiracy is unsupportable. Devastation, grief and madness were the prevailing sentiments.
Oh, and blessed relief. And to suggest there existed any concerted effort to build or maintain a prevailing hegemony is something that could only be done from the comfort of 21st century rose coloured glasses. A balance of power, yes. Hegemony, no. The fact was that Australians, in keeping with people the world over, were desperate to make sense of the carnage wrought by WW1 in whichever way they could.
Only to be smashed by an almost equally lethal Spanish Influenza which killed another 20 million. Then, you seem to assert that neo-libralism is a construct that has been imposed on the world. By whom? Governments evolve to where technology, environment, population and macro-economics will allow them to go. No one pre-charted a course to neo-liberalism. No one even charted a course to globalism.
Technology did that. And the only thing we actively and collectively got behind was democracy. Everything else was evolution, a happy accident or glorious opportunism. Those nasty libs. The cheers squad love it! But the facts are somewhat at odds with your assertion. Birmingham is currently correcting a system designed under Gillard.
Your readers go as far as to suggest Howard was somehow the architect of all this. Yes, he overstayed his welcome, but this was the government that saw unprecedented growth in low to middle incomes yep, trickle down — tried to hire a plumber or electrician lately? AND the introduction of a raft of new income re-distribution measures. You can argue about their form — especially some of the ridiculous efforts at middle-class welfare.
But it happened. Not as part of some big plan. Or an attempt to build a neo-liberal hegemony. Just a run-of-the-mill attempt to retain office. My message is this. There are simply some people trying to make sense of and influence in whatever way they can in the blink of an eyelid that forms a parliamentary term the current prevailing circumstances.
The Asking Price
They are, sadly, very human. The pendulum will swing again. It always does. Then the neo-libs will be screaming. For me, my family and my community. You could too — as an artist and as an agitator for better funding. Just try to keep the bow short and the dogma on a leash. Actually humanity only survives because of its collective ideas and actions — the community you speak of.
Evolution HAS led to the ability for us to make conscious choices. We can gather together and make humane choices or we can be divisive and annihilate each other and the planet. Artists do not have collective power because their value in society is undermined. We all agitate. But agitating for funding is harder than you may think.
If artists received the recompense they deserved there would be no need to agitate for funding. One of the biggest pieces of bullshit is that our government can run out of money. This one particular piece of bullshit has neutered any opposition to the depradations we see going on around us every day. When a government like ours wants to provide a comprehensive health care system, it needs doctors, nurses and hospitals. When a government like ours wants to provide a decent education system, it needs teachers and schools.
The thing that limits a government from pursuing the public good is the productive capacity of its people, not its fiscal position. If this looks like something you might be interested in, please check out our Facebook group links on the website. A terrific article. Thank you for writing it. This must be one of the most powerful and convincing critiques of the use of language, neo-liberalism, and the effects of both on the lives of ordinary people that I have read — or will read.
It has the same relevance to us residents of the UK as it must also be highly appropriate to the citizens of the USA. Under Tony Blair, New Labour note the name change focused on the middle-classes, and was rewarded with three terms of office. But during its period of governance, neo-liberal New Labour left behind many ordinary Britons and the party — and many British citizens — suffers today because of this.
Bernie Sanders held some hope for the powerless poor, the blue-collar worker and the unemployed in the USA election, but he lost out to a self-serving Democratic Party and its classic representative, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Donald Trump now claims to be the champion of powerless people. As with Nigel Farrage in the UK, Donald Trump knows the power of language and how it can be manipulated for personal and corporate advantage. Too bad that many of their supporters do not, did not, have this cultural appreciation and a clearer understanding of how it can be used for duplicitous purposes.
Again, thank you Neil Pigot for truth and inspiration. Outstanding article, Neil. Poor language and PC — that dreadful incursion into free speech — are destroying our society. It seems to me that this was more profoundly shocking than using the term to justify cuts to arts education. It comes from the same place however, and perhaps provides an opportunity for a broader and therefore more effective critique.
I am grateful to Neil Pigot for his analysis. Thank you Neil. Helping Parents to Help Their Children The most important preventive intervention may be how parents and others deal with children who have been bereaved. Talking to Children About a Family Member's Death Most authors agree that there is preventive value in educating children about death when they are young, long before death is likely to enter their lives in an emotionally threatening way.
Attending the Funeral Parents frequently express uncertainty about whether children should attend funeral services, fearing that such participation might frighten or otherwise upset them. Anniversary Reactions: A Normal Long-Term Consequence As discussed in the preceding chapters on adults, not all long-term consequences of bereavement are pathologic. When to Seek Professional Help As with adults, the distinction between normal and pathologic grieving in children is not always clear. Conclusions About Interventions Although there is little scientific evidence regarding the effect of intervention either prior or subsequent to bereavement during childhood, there is general agreement that promptness, honesty, and supportiveness help.
Following are some of the important questions that should be addressed: What are the signs and symptoms of pathologic versus normal grief following parental or sibling death? What are the preexisting or concurrent risk factors associated with poor outcomes, including major psychiatric disorder?
How do identified risk factors hold up over the course of the first several years following bereavement? What is the relationship between the sex of the deceased parent and the age and sex of surviving children on the course of bereavement reactions? How do children who are in various stages of normal cognitive and personality development at the time of bereavement do in comparison with each other and how do they compare with nonbereaved children of the same developmental stage?

The author's own concluding confidence trick is not bad either. It wouldn't be easy, operating singly. And presumably it wouldn't do for him to know? If that happens, explode back at him and wait for him to simmer down. Actually, I think you and he might get on reasonably well. Is this an unpardonable breach of personal privacy? And is Colonel Neville's purpose really sinister-as it sometimes appears? Kenworthy finds him in turn eccentric, domineering, secretive and, on occasion, bumblingly inefficient; then he loses him. Murder follows, and Kenworthy, helped by Monique Colin, a delectable young private eye from an agency in Nice, traces a trail back to the wartime Resistance: a world of pride, passions, jealousies and shame, in which the harshness of reality was sometimes more powerful than the heroism.
