Elections and Magic

If you care at all about Australian politics, you’d know that for a time there, our current Labor administration flirted with the idea of instating a filter on the internet to ensure that content deemed pornographic was unavailable in Australia. It was broadly speaking a non-starter amongst young people, and after some ridicule and being informed by the tech companies involved that it wouldn’t happen, the party dropped it and tried to stop talking about it.

The Liberal party, who aren’t liberal, released their Costings (basically, ‘how we intend to pay for things’) for its election promises, which has a host of problems (some very vague things) but also includes, in the fine print, that same internet filter, without a vote or talking about it as a component of their political platform. Essentially, the Liberal party are trying to instate a bad policy without a discussion.

They probably will win tomorrow. That’s not very cool.

Tomorrow, I go to vote; tomorrow, I go to play Magic cards for a bit with a friend; tomorrow, I drown my sorrows in Pepsi Max and videogames; tomorrow, I do some work on my presentation. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.

Well, today, but it’s just past midnight.
