A political and economic system as described by Karl Marx
Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.
In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.
What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.
From wikileaks.org press release:
From this article today, which you may have seen on television today if you watch ABC.
Now watch the video again considering these details which you may have missed:
1) Food was being delivered to people who would otherwise go hungry.
This means poverty is severe and welfare is clearly failing. This generally means there are very limited prospects for employment in this area because money is simply not flowing in this community.
2) Tons of food was being transported, in particularly vegetables and bread. Question is why aren’t these products being sold in supermarkets? Are supermarkets simply squeezing out local manufacturers?
3) The young woman (Stacey Binns) was working for no payment.
This means no amount of work she was doing would increase her disposable income, and would not start money flowing in her community. Therefore what she was really doing was being forced to perpetuate the poverty in her community.
4) The young woman (Stacey Binns) quite rightly pointed out that there are hundreds of application for every job advertised. Her chances are slim of getting out of the poverty trap deliberately created around her.
5) This is one of 18 high unemployment areas around Australia where this scheme has been rolled out this month and already the federal government wants to expand the scheme further making it nationwide by July 2015.
6) The government will spend 900 Million dollars rolling out this scheme, that’s almost enough to send a rover to the surface of Mars. It well known that these schemes are generally not successful and actually if anything reduce the chances of transition from welfare to work.
7) 900 Million dollars is enough money to give 18,000 people 50, 000 for one year, I think 18,000 people having a basics income would generate more jobs than a downward economic spiral. The almost 1 Billion dollars will be wasted on a variety of corporate scumbags lining up for a hand out while attacking people on benefits.
8) Work for the dole or ‘help and hassle’ welfare schemes only really function when the economy is super hot and unemployment is extremely low (2% or less), not when unemployment is well above 5%.
9) All of this has been tried before and even without the stipulation to engage in slave labor, when there are no jobs no amount of looking for them will be successful.
Proof? (Warning kiwi accents.)
I cant try any harder!
-A young man shows quite succinctly by canvassing numerous Auckland suburbs that the jobs were simply not there.
The clip is from a much larger series by Alistair Barry which you can find links to here:
Don’t be too impatient give it a few minutes, you are practically looking at a working crystal ball, everything you are seeing now in the Australian economy was tried in New Zealand 25 years ago. The result was a disaster, by the time the right wing neo-con government was voted out off office in 1999 , the economy was shrinking at 2% though strangely the government statistics department was claiming it was growing at 2%. Though that is a separate scandal in itself which strangely got very little media traction. Of course this all happened while most western economies were booming, showing how much of a complete failure it was to improve the economy.
This of course was simply a tactic to reduce the average wage and introduce a whole new strata of New Zealand society to a lower standard of living ,and quite a few to abject poverty. Interestingly this right wing government launched a radical slashing of welfare just after assuming office on a strong majority after a lack luster two term Labour government with leadership changes in the dying days, sounds too bloody familiar.
For reference in 1991 $50 NZD was worth about $86NZD in today’s money. The inflation problems experienced in Australia in the 90’s had already happened in NZ in the 80’s. Food prices are comparable with Australian prices though meat is about 20% less expensive due to exceptional livestock rearing climate (fertile soil, lack of drought and neither too hot or cold most years). Beer and other alcohol is 50% cheaper due to much lower excises, personally I think if it wasn’t the country would be empty and Bondi Beach would be full. New Zealand actually produces enough food to feed itself and all of Australia, a good reason to be in the good books with the bloody kiwis, or at least have a comprehensive invasion plan.
Jonathan Moylan had his own Mega Mosque moment when he created a parody email system called ANZcorporate and sent out fake press releases claiming a col mining project had lost it line of credit from ANZ, of course the share price when tumbling because all this is fake money and can disappear in an instant. Then the banksters got angry that people were figuring out their dirty tricks, his ‘roumortrage’ (rumor and arbitrage) had done real damage, but he unlike banksters had refused to take monetary advantage from it all.
Court case ensues, found guilty but unlikely to face jail because these kinds of finance crimes always have precedent and are usually accompanied by light sentences.
Amazing the kind of damage you can do with a few dollars, a clever idea and stone cold bluff.
Because absolutely nothing can be a real cool hand.
They said it wasn’t happening here, it didn’t happen here. The truth was it was better covered up here.
And while Victoria Police corporation worked so hard to shut down Occupy Melbourne as a street protest the very reason we were protesting the dirty frauds committed by banks, Victoria Police corporation were investigating this fraud.
The bank heres received secret bail outs, and at least one bank has been involved in propping up a Ponzi scheme and snatching the victims houses.
Worst of all was CBA (Commonwealth bank of Australia’s) response to the scam, get on board and side with the scammer to steal the house.

I wish we could all ‘do the heavy lifting’ like Tony Abbott and his family are.
Dad bringing home 500,000 per year with a guaranteed superannuation of 200,000 per year plus perks, Daughter getting a full scholarship to university, Mum used to work for the Rothschild’s (masters of of the financial universe) bank. Gee they are doing it tough! Well they would be doing it tough if the average wage was 2 million per year, but its not. This greedy pig has his snout in every trough and is as corrupt as they come. He has the audacity to talk about doing things according to the constitution. Well Mr Abbott, the Australian constitution I have read clearly specifies the penalty for treason as being, death by hanging. What is does not specify is where the culprit is to be hanged from. Honestly, it’s looking more and more likely that Tony Abbott will be the first sitting Prime Minister of Australia to be hung for treason, and I suggest that if we can’t hang him by the scrotum we’ll hang him by his ankle…until dead.
Old money is behind politics, as the puppet masters.
If a typical individual could learn how to do your job in two weeks or less, you are at serious risk.
In a disturbing turn of events protesters are using elaborate disguises to attempt to appear to be normal members of the community. In a recent incident one man ejected from the glorious prime ministers hallowed chambers had disguised himself as a priest and had even gone to the extraordinary lengths to have attended seminary school, graduated ,dedicated his life to God and even gained employment in a church and preached to congregations. Protesters are apparently pushing a radical political ideology called ‘Democracy’, which through bizarre convoluted legal smoke and mirrors, they are attempting to claim is part of the Australian political process.
We are seeing elaborate and desperate attempts to subvert the glorious 1000 year plan by the glorious twin visionaries of Abbott and Hockey. A purported man of God should not stoop to impersonating a priest for political means.

Guess what Australia, you are 30 years behind New Zealand!
A wave of shocked silence followed by jeers echos across the country…
Australians all angrily ask “What are we behind in?”
“Apart from Rugby Union and occasionally Netball we are not behind New Zealand!”
Only if it was so unimportant as sport, you might see whats really going on. You have been blinded by bread and circuses, or perhaps beer and footy.
Split Enz, from New Zealand in 1981, with a song written by Neil Finn, unfortunately history does repeat.
New Zealand, for decades, has been a social policy test tube for the western world. A small, largely isolated population that reeled from the Neo- con ‘shock doctrine’ of Chicago school economists.
Even more surprising was the fact that this hard core Neo-con agenda was run by the New Zealand’s Labour party, a political outfit more or less akin to the ALP in political ideology and electoral significance.
Well it would have been akin to the ALP, if it wasn’t for a few key individuals who drew inspiration from Thatcher and Regan who were in office at the time in UK and USA respectively.
Would you like to look into a somewhat tame version of what is happening now in Australian Politics with the Abbott/Hockey budget?
Have a glance at these somewhat surreal crystal balls, telling you a potential future for Australia from New Zealand’s troubled past.
If you do not watch these films, you only have yourself to blame when further nasty surprises happen!
Its worth pointing out that despite this film being made more than 12 years after the neo- con ravage and upheaval in NZ, it was effectively banned from NZ television until 2003, nearly 20 years after the events it portrayed. You might ask why, and that’s the exact question the New Zealand Government didn’t want its citizens asking. Citizens who were now being treated as units of economic production.
Another film by the same director (Alistair Barry) about the same events from a slightly different and more enlightened perspective, explores how the Reserve Bank of New Zealand was behind many of the initiatives. Curiously the director said his main inspiration for making the movies was he had so much footage that simply made him angry, and he had to understand why it make him angry, and what was actually driving the economic and social carnage witnessed.
Both of the films heavily feature television archives, which many New Zealanders would have seen as part of news broadcasts at the time of the events, some clips appear in both films because of the significant to both stories and the political history described.
Split Enz I walk away; 1984, from their last album.
Perhaps Split Enz saw the (economic) writing on the wall, splitting up in 1984 and temporarily moving to Los Angeles before morphing into ‘The Mullanes’ and finally ‘Crowded House’ and moving back ‘home’ to Australia.
The opening credits of this video sadly will not put to bed any lingering debate over whether Crowded House was Kiwi band or and Aussie band, as Hester had joined Split Enz before the remainder of Split Enz became ‘Crowded House’.
The best compromise to this sometimes confused friendly debate is best settled with this: Crowded House was a Melbourne band that formed in the USA from the remains of a New Zealand band.
Welcome to the confusion and dislocation of the shock doctrine and globalization.
And finally Crowded House ‘Weather with you’ from 1992. When the rapacious globalist corporations come, they bring the weather (and its not good weather).
If you don’t think it can happen here, this week should have been a wake up call, Chile was taken by surprise in 1973, as was New Zealand in 1984, will Australia wake up and get wise in 2014?
History does repeat.
What was once a purely New Zealand phenomenon can easily become completely ingrained in Australia, be it music or political ideology.
RIP Paul Hester
FON is a 9 year old technology from Spain which allows you to share your fixed line internet through its wireless antenna to anyone nearby. It was initially set up as a sharing and profit sharing system whereby you got a 50% commission for the data you gave to the user if you chose to. You could also do this for gratis in exchange for similar free WiFi of other users. Now the profit share plans no longer exist.
Telstra could have pushed this technology 5 years ago, but it would have meant they would have been allowing customers to opt out of paying for expensive 3G internet and would have had to pay customers for the data they routed for Telstra. Pay customers to compete with our 3G? No way!
Why is Telstra pushing the technology now?
3G speeds are considered mediocre and largely ubiquitous (in metro areas) with many places giving this away for free. At the same time there has been an explosion is the use of mobile internet meaning paid networks began to struggle under the weight of traffic. Building wireless capacity is expensive and Telstra needs to develop wireless capacity and drive down the price of wireless internet before the NBN arrives with its massive capacity fiber optic internet.
So in other words Telstra is scared of the NBN and is too cheap to build enough wireless towers and would rather use its customers home connections for free. NBN will likely destroy Telstra and Optus in the internet and VOIP markets leaving Telstra (and Optus) only a copper line / 3G carrier for the the extremely remote areas, which have never been profitable.
One of the reasons Telstra wants to make the wireless ‘free’ is simply to ruin the wireless market for the NBN by using FON. The NBN will find it harder to get customers in the wireless market as the price will be so low. Rather cynical considering Telstra didn’t want this technology to compete with their 3G but when someone else wants a piece of the market (3G/4G/4G+), they are literally smashing all of the toys so no one can play.
Ironically this is all happening in the country that did so much to make wireless internet a reality and we are among the last to benefit from it. Hats off to the clever people at CSIRO who made WiFi possible. No thanks to the corporates who sand bag every new technology developed.
Telstra: another reason why we cannot have nice things
If you are interested in truly shared networks do some research on mesh networks.
