i've recently had the pleasure of discovering
a substantial online archive of the man's investigative journalism
what a pleasure it is to read his words
to listen to him speak
to watch his documentaries and interview
the difference between pilger's work and the mainstream
it could not be more stark
instead of hatred and contempt we find compassion
in place of arrogance we find humility
instead of confusion we find clarity
in place of a lack of joined-up thinking we find coherence
instead of ignorance we encounter deep wisdom
this australian truth-speaker should be a national treasure
that he stands on the margins speaks volumes for our democra$y
