The Subversion of Idolatry

Writing for Eureka Street, Andrew Hamilton looks at the cultural similarities that have become evident in the wake of the current Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry. In particular, and concerningly, Hamilton writes
