In one of his many books Primo Levi asks why it was necessary to be so cruel and dehumanise so much when more simple means would have sufficed.

The answer, which as he says cries to heaven, was 'to make it easier for them to do the job'.

I think of this often.

Yes, you are right about the woman; she knows. There is something so touching about the expression on those boys' faces. They say we have paedophiles on various island prisons waiting to enter and take our hospital spaces and cause traffic jams. The politicians treat us with such contempt, but it is noticed. This time last year it was Sudanese gangs in Melbourne. Any 2 or 3 Sudanese young men wanting to spend time together in a new country.

One time in Sydney a friend and I were sitting out the back talking and drinking, and some people from Africa were playing music in the apartment opposite. I think they became aware we were listening and put on a show for us. When it was over we clapped and called out. They smiled and bowed. Ordinary people are like that.

2 elections coming up, state and federal, that last by May.
