Fallout of Foggy Memories

“This world of foggy memories – and mediocre politics – has often helped take us back to the political equivalent of debating science versus religion. It has cleared the way for a vapid politics of three-word slogans and the “cheap corn” of appealing to our basest instincts and self-interest. It has cleared the way for us to find ourselves on a shifting battlefield of fairly ugly ideology rather than “evidence-based” politics and policy.”

Laura Tingle, In Search of Good Government: Great Expectations & Political Amnesia (Carlton, VIC: Black, Inc, 2017), p. 82. ISBN: 9781863959285.
