We seem to have reached a point in our political development all over the world where the economic benefit is of much more concern than the social benefit.

This is perhaps highlighted by President Trump, who is re-shaping America's relationship with the world on the basis of a good (commercial) deal on everything.

The decision by the ABC to axe the shortwave service seems to be part of this trend.

In simple terms it means we are losing our humanity.

For those heralding the end of neo-liberalism, maybe it's time to think again.
