A Double Life.

Young Australians who privately admit to spirituality are living a double life.

Work dominates everything 24/7.

Work is secular, materialistic, pragmatic, cynical, and competitive.

Young people know what their employers want and they publicly adhere to their bosses' materialist philosophy.

But privately they are spiritual.
By this they mean that they are idealistic and non-materialistic.

They express their repressed goodwill by supporting internet campaigns.

To keep their jobs they tell their employers what they wants to hear.
Privately they may feel the exact opposite.

But this cannot be expressed in an official way.

Our politicians are cynical and pragmatic - as materialist as big business.

There is no room in our official culture for idealism.
Idealism is a dirty word to big business.
So we don't admit to any ideals.

But the internet sites that fight causes are growing every day.

Some politicians have caught sight of this but no one is prepared to take the risk.

So we have a stalemate.

But young people's real personalities appear on the internet.
So idealism will win out in the end.
