AUSTRALIA, YOU NEED A SOUL DETOX
There are three things that always happen on January 1st.
One is the arrival of a sensational new diet plan that no intelligent woman will touch, because it bans alcohol. The second is an avalanche of horoscopes (I may be partly responsible for this). And thirdly, there will be something about cricket. I believe it’s quite popular.
You hardly ever read the New Year story that should matter the most. And I hate to say it, but Australia doesn’t need to get a hotter body.
It needs a big fat soul detox.
I’m not talking a $100 appointment with a New Age wanker with a flashy website, either. Believe me, if you’re an astrologer you’re surrounded by them.
A soul detox is actually free. And it’s very simple. It’s literally what’s good for the soul.
You don’t need to sit there chanting. Just start getting your head around the idea of giving back. And even if you already give back, you wonderful woman, then do more. You’re probably exactly the kind of woman who can!
If you’re reading this, on The Hoopla, then you have a computer.
And if you’re Australian and own a computer then you’re richer than anyone else on the planet. I would guess you also have a Medicare card, and you could wander down the market any time and get a discount bag of apples for $2. That’s rich, to a woman in Afghanistan.
Now, nobody wants to be a charity bore, but there are some embarrassing facts about being Australian that you need to know…
According to Dick Smith, more than 2000 people in this country earn over $1 million a year but claim no tax deductions for charity whatsoever? In other words, unless they have bad accountants, they’re just not giving anything at all.
