200 years of care

Manly is full, the infrastructure is bursting. Commercialisation of every cm for short term gain (of a few). Friendly bullies have their way in a de-regulated environment. The 'wheels of industry' can be heard all along the beach, the subs and the roads at night. Meanwhile authorities are distributing pulped forests of 'appeal' and 'education.' An ineffective way, but a good smoke-screen. But all that made this place special, its natural flora and fauna is being eradicated (still). The McMansions are not for living, but making that buck and moving on. The synergetic outcome of yet another Bondi/Miami is of no interest to the gatekeepers or the 'families'. In fact, it is fml-values that drive the bulk of this development.
