What the mirror tells us

Or tries ( like our parents) to-- the whole truth and nothing but the truth .
Same call from Socrates and the Bible!
Emperors in the failing Roman Empire resorted to trying  to reinforce Emperor worship, Fortunately for us there were adults in the audience who called for the mirror of truth as the way to life and .......
children who were prepared to state the obvious "he's wearing no clothes".
Going on all the suspect heroes mentioned by all parties in the last few days , our pollies don't read much  .One might be tempted to think that the only people they really listen to are themselves.

Labor polys trying to lighten up ( their misplaced reaction to being told they were being too religious) is leaving them with no clothes/tattered telltale clothes.

Take Wayne swan speaking to himself this week .
To be fair it was a time in our lives when, up top we thought we were radical (HAIR) when in reality, we were conservative.Not products of our own minds but products of our parents.
Its helpful to recognize this confusion so we can actually mature in truth and grow up.Listening to his speech to the Cotton club , I had the distinct impression he hasn't grown up.Neither it seems have most Fabians  Mind you Hockey talkiing to his heroes ( you can blame the press for misrepresenting you, but when you get a chance to speak directly - not letting some  tired old liberal reactionary represent you is seriuosly dumb)  was showing his age too .Gazumping the kids with a cross reference to Galbraith might have wisely won a few votes!
