Review: Magazine Article
The Monthly November 2013, The Power of One, Robert Manne
Before I picked up this issue of The Monthly, I knew that the great democracy experiment was not doing so well. I appreciated that Australia, along with the UK and USA, is now dominated by the political views and priorities of one person, Rupert Murdoch. I knew that in Australia the governments that are elected are more likely to be those chosen by one man; or to be more accurate, those that fall are more likely to have been pushed, or destroyed, by one person and his empire.
I did not think I needed to read another article about Rupert Murdoch. I knew enough already. I was wrong.
