Abbott’s First 100 Days and the reality-based community | Sunday 15 December 2013

the first 100 daysThe actual document is here if you are interested in reading it.

It’s in keeping with Abbott’s campaign for the election – create a “business-lite” prospectus for government, and then pump out reports that confirm you’ve done what you said you would do, regardless of whether the facts match up.

It’s like having a consulting firm for a government; you know they can claim that they’ve done what you paid them to, because their interpretation of the facts will always show that they have.

“That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

Karl Rove (allegedly)
