Class struggle in 2154 AD: Elysium

Film review by Don Longo

(iMax 2013, Dir. Neill Blomkamp)


Nothing changes. The future is like the past, only worse. Humanity is irremediably divided. Power is in the hands of a ruthless oligarchy. Equality is forgotten. Liberty is meaningless. Highly developed technology gives life to the few but brings repression and death to the many.

Climate change - no more half measures

A Spirit of Eureka leaflet distributed at the GetUp! rallies, November 17.

Real, Threatening – and Avoided by Labor and Liberal

Climate change vulnerability

Climate Change (CC) is real and threat-ening, and neither the Coalition govern-ment nor the Labor opposition have policies which will do much about our contribution. The Coalition is worse, but the ALP is also so lacking in real com-mitment that the difference is far smaller than the rhetoric suggests. As al-ways, the effects of global disasters like CC are imbalanced: the poor suffer much more, whether in the develop-ing world or in the advanced economies most responsible for CC. Unless that imbalance is recognised and fully com-pensated for, policies to deal with CC will be resented and deniers will have fertile ground for their lies.

Jibes and counter-jibes, differences often separated by a millimetre, are analysed to death. Personality traits, what clothes certain parliamentarians wear, even down to tie colours, are given exaggerated coverage. Cartoons lampoon individual characteristics.
