Category Archives: Plutocracy
Rule by the very wealthy, similar to Oligarchy, we use this term to mean both things even though they are slightly different. In many cases it is difficult the determine if a system is oligarchy or plutocracy.
It sounds like a good idea, lets all be friends on an equal footing all with the same rights. Certainly sounds fair, but we all didn’t get here at about the same time, by the same means , or in the same circumstances. Some of us have root going back thousands of years to the dawn of civilization, some just got off a gunboat 8 generations ago and acted like it too.
Think of it like this:
You are having a family party at your home, rather quiet, just the family.Then all of a sudden hundreds of people burst through the front door and literally start going mad, they tear up the garden and start selling your possessions and even start selling tickets to even more people that start coming. You keep telling them to all leave and that the house is yours and you didn’t invite any of them and they have no permission to be there. every time you complain the gatecrashers say you don’t have a ticket so what you say doesn’t matter. The people selling the tickets realize your complaints are hurting ticket sales so they offer you tickets for free just to shut you up. The ticket is red and has a big white R on it. Do you accept the ticket? Do you realize accepting the ticket will really hurt you chances of a damages law suit against the gate crashers
Yes that’s right by accepting the R ticket you will be agreeing that you are just another gatecrasher and have so land-rights or any special historical connection to the land.
Yes it is a racist rights and real estate robbery, its signing up to be robbed.
Come on, lets be smart, if Tony Abbott really wants this it has to be bad for us, that logic works 9 time out of 10 regardless of what the topic is.
Get a treaty not a second class citizenship.
Of course this means that:
1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.
2) Roads will not be maintained.
3) No new roads will be built.
4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.
5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance
Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.
The moment Tony Abbott coined this phrase it was yet another “suppository of wisdom” coming from Tony Abbott’s mouth.
It had ‘memebait’ written all over it. Fortunately SMH was on the job.
For those too young to know what this all means allow me to explain. (Adult themes and language)
Relevance? Today is the first day Australian warplanes began flying armed over the regions disputed by Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan (and of course the boogeyman ‘de jour'; ISIS).
In case there is any blow back, remember no one outside of the Australian political system voted for military intervention, If you want to blame anyone blame a politician.
Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.
While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.
John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.
Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.
Bendigo mosque wants to remove restrictions including opening hours, limits on political discussion and a cap on the number of worshipers.
Limiting political discussion in a mosque may be unconstitutional. Sorry I believe the Corneloup case set the precedent for the occupy case, the term burdening as not being interfering, but sure demand a double standard.
New South Wales
Liverpool, Sydney; mosque auctions ISIS flag for $2000. But they try to tell you they are not connected to terrorism.
Underwood, Brisbane; federal police raid Islamic bookstore, firearm seized, apparently a makeshift shooting range was inside. Nine other warrants executed in the Brisbane area.
Currumbin, Gold Coast; Mosque gets approval despite significant protest from locals.
Federal and state government
Terror level close to being raised. I wonder why?
In the USA there is an on going debate about net neutrality which is a complex topic.
Basically the issue is large communications infrastructure providers are attempting to ransom content delivery companies for speed (bandwidth) or priority access to their own customers.
This is relevant for the world as many major internet services are hosted in the USA and reliant on their network policies and speeds.
Vi Hart ( who normally explains mathematical concepts ) gives a really good explanation of the net neutrality issue.
* Netflicks is an online movie service obviously reliant on good internet speeds.

New Zealand a place where crime was rare, then it was only violent crime being rare, then only knife rare, then finally crime was as commonplace as anywhere else.
What happened, Neo-con’s took over and made poverty and unemployment an economic goal.
Then desperation and violence became the norm.
For reference Ashburton is 86 Km south of Christchurch (the lump on the right hand side of the south island) which had large earthquakes a few years ago.
Ashburton was also once home the the Minister of social welfare and later Prime Minister Jenny Shipley who played a decisive hand in cuts to welfare throughout the 1990’s.
Aramoana incident (mass shooting) occurred in the early 1990’s as the new wave of welfare cuts came in. This incident bore some similarities (13 dead) to the official narrative of the Port Arthur massacre, crazed white male loner with lots of guns and had a shooting spree.
