The damage that has been inflicted though since that time is considerable. Hence the situation we find ourselves in, in more recent times, with populist politics.

I think you miss the point. Due to greed the odd Farrier has been replaced many thousands working in the automotive industry. However if you are still trying to be a farrier in 2020 good luck to you. Obviously it's not working out.

The point being is that ethics is to often a quaint term with little application in todays world. Greed rules supreme. Most anything goes. Just don't get caught. If do, deny to the end. Obviously some will benefit. But a lot will be losers. A bit of a case of every one for themselves.

Not quite. Greed corrupts. It destroys lives. It can seriously impact on the state of being human.

NSW welcomes Victorians from 23 November. Should probably be earlier but at least there is a date.

Maybe, but someone could be greed and very generous at the same time. Another could be greedy and otherwise be a great person - the great big melting pot of life. Nothing is rarely black or white

Hopefully SA will open to Vic on that date too because the best route for me to take from NSW to SA requires me to drive through the top NE corner of Vic. If not then I have drive another 650 kms each way.

Edit: Ah wait. There's another way: The 120km long Rufus River Road: Which looks as grim as it sounds.

Further Edit: SA might open its borders to Vic in the coming weeks but if it does, those entering SA from Vic have to do 2 weeks quarantine in SA. Looks like the dirt road it is....

You will need the car detailed when you hit SA.

From the SA gov site:

Entry via Victoria

Travellers from Low Community-Transmission Zone states who have not otherwise been in Victoria in the previous 14 days may enter South Australia in a vehicle from New South Wales via Victoria if the person travels through Victoria without leaving the vehicle and only via these approved roads:
  • the Sturt Highway from Mildura to Yamba, or
  • the Calder Highway and Meridian Road between Abbotsford Bridge and the Sturt Highway and then via the Sturt Highway to Yamba.
Does that help at all?

Stop being a pussy. That road looks absolutely fine - certainly better than many I've driven on. Get yourself a 4wd, if you don't already have one, and you'd eat that 120kms in a hour and a half max

Yes, it's helpful thanks. I'm not sure I trust travelling through Vic and then being allowed into SA though - even if they say it's okay.

Yeah it looks okay. Will have to watch for paint chips due to passing cars and the car will be filthy after that. I see stretches of it are tarred down the middle.

If your 4wd doesn't get paint chipped and scratched and doesn't get dirty, you're not doing it right! Don't be one of those Sydney, Melbourne or Canberra 4wd (or, heaven forbid, SUV) owners who have never taken their vehicles anywhere near a dirt road, because 'ít might get dirty'. Wankers

Looks like an awesome trip. Do it
