[APP] PJK is Back and Other Rambling Observations

Day 2,052, 02:22 by Paul J Keating

I’ve been mostly invisible for a couple of weeks due to RL pressures. I hate it when a Party President is all active before the election then totally disappears during the term where activity matters and I apologise to all APP members unreservedly for this. I only hope you understand that completely unexpected RL pressures have had me working incredibly long hours and unable to devote any time to other activities including eRep. The worst is over now and I expect to see out my term with a more appropriate level of activity. Thanks to the excellent leadership team APP has in place the party has not suffered greatly from my absence.

Having missed what’s happened over the past few weeks I return to find a nation once again fighting each other as hard as we fight the enemy. That’s OK, political squabbles and name-calling are just par for the course and make for an interesting diversion from time to time. The fault lines that divide our society are older than I am, I take no sides in these squabbles, that’s not what I’m about. You can play the politics of hate ‘til the cows come home and what you’ll get in return from myself and the APP are resolute focus on the issues that matter; good governance, transparency and democratic decision making.

It is perhaps no big surprise that eAustralia’s political scene is dominated by role-play, this is a role playing game after all. But seriously, our top 3 parties are right-wing revolutionary, left-wing revolutionary and no-wing military rule? Is this a true reflection of our society’s political leanings? I think not, and while the would-be Guevaras and Mussolinis bash each other with ever-escalating rhetorical clubs in their quest for the hearts and minds of impressionable youth the APP will continue to focus on the issues that really matter.

Good governance
Transparency
Democracy

It’s really quite simple, why make it harder than that?

In times of tension, people always turn to the political extremities.

As the situation in eAustralia improves, the top three parties will die.
