“And you too, Barnaby?”
Alas, dear reader.
Rather like hopes for a responsible, ethical, national sovereignty-honouring Federal Government, or a reversal of Australia’s ever-rising debt levels, this blog has now come to the end of its life.
I confess that a small part of me would like to point the finger at reasons other than my own growing loss of interest in all things political and economic.
Certainly, it would be easy to cite our new government’s immediate display of galactic hypocrisy on debt and deficits — with nary a whisper in public opposition from a disappointingly craven Barnaby Joyce — as reason sufficient to pull the pin on a blog bearing the title “Barnaby Is Right”.
But truth be told, the real reason is my decision to finally heed a more heartfelt incentive; the deep peace and serenity that past experience assures will always come from spending most of life’s moments thinking only on things that enrich, ennoble, and inspire.
Or, best of all, not thinking at all.
Readers with a well-honed sense of the sardonic will, I am sure, readily observe that while the latter often appears endemic in those who practice in or comment on the fields of economics and politics, almost never is the former in evidence.
Thank you to all who have read, commented, and most importantly, shared.
But now, it is time for your humble blogger to bid you adieu, and return to a life better titled contemptus mundi, contemptus saeculi.
