The Pen is mightier than the sword, but the Pen must sometimes move the sword against corruption if the corrupt are not moved by the pen.. An idea without an implementer is useless. "The Rulers do not carry the sword in vain"Rom 13:4

Australia's Recession of the 80s and 90s. Women working=Gender Equality?

Tonight I was watching Paul Keating and others in an ABC coverage of Australia's history.  Keating explained 'This is not a recession we might have, it is a recession we HAVE TO HAVE"....

The pain and suffering as uncountable thousands of mature aged workers over 45 who lost their jobs was incalculable. Most never worked again.

During this period many women moved into the work place. You might have heard that this was some kind of "womens liberation"?  No...it was not liberation, it was enslavement.  The simple fact is, that by this time in Australian economic life,  the wife working was an economic necessity, nothing to do with gender equality.

I suppose this was the first wave of the global 'reality check' that is casting it's dark shadow of truth across the privileged preening western world.
