Who the fuck is Andrew Wicks? The Nation’s Hangman? Someone who never forgives nor forgets and simply bears a grudge? Is he voice of ISIS fundamentalism in Australia? Fraser, Hewson, and Turnbull all gave up their membership of the LNP and the LNP never forgave them. Wicks sounds more extreme right wing than left. Sadly more LNP more Abbott, more Dutton than Australian. Wicks seemingly stereotypes individuals by their “nature” and not by their history or social context. They are simply good, bad and born that way, immutable.
Sadly, we know how the story ends. If we’re happy to rally behind him to fight a more contemporary evil, we should not forgive, nor forget.
