27 Things To Give A S**t About In 2017

APATHY is tacit consent.  We need to CARE & ACT, not just for ourselves but for others.  In fact, to put others first is the way to ethical and moral behaviour and to build yourself. There are many people who stand up and speak out.  Often they are derided as “patsy’s” or “bunnies” – stupid for sticking their heads above the parapet.  They are effectively derided for taking action against…

Socially Manufactured Hate

Small minded, insular and ignorant people will probably always exist. Certainly, their numbers will not decrease unless and until we are led by honest, caring and selfless leaders who model integrity and explain the opportunity offered by differences in cultural traits and mores. We also need to recognise that schooling is *not* education and that the “3 r’s”, whilst providing a functional basis for life, do little to instil a…

They shoot horses don’t they?

I am totally depressed at the depth of world poverty and, even worse, the lack of compassion and caring shown by so many who have so much. I detest our materialistic, consumer orientated, profit before people society. I am disgusted by the unethical and immoral behaviour of so many of our politicians, including those at senior levels. I am horrified by the hatred and aggression levelled at those in society…

Somali Islamic militants Al Shabaab use Donald Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ speech in recruitment film.

War mongering, discriminatory, prejudiced and macho chest thumping is immature and unproductive. It is also dangerous. The possibility that someone as intellectually deficit as Donald Trump could become the President of the USA is frightening indeed for he embodies all of those characteristics. Trump’s diatribes and those of others with similar narrow-minded and self-serving views are a major threat to peace and well-being for all. It is such immoderate and…

Even in so-called democracies, the notion that “anyone” can reach the top of the tree and become a President, a Prime-Minister or Business Leader is generally a fallacy.

ABBOTT & CO. ON THE ATTACK – Paramilitary Border force to have thousands of weapons-ready officers

FORCE Tony Abbott & his wealth backed LNP Government have made yet another move against democracy and civil liberties with the formation of the new “Border Force.” A stealthily conceived amalgamation of Customs and Immigration departments, this new paramilitary force will introduce around 5000 to 6000 armed officers with widely increased powers. This is a continuation of what has been a steadily continuing campaign of the Abbott government to restrict…

THE METADATA MINE-FIELD: How your phone tracks your every move

FEAR. Tony Abbott has used this beast well to push through draconian legislative changes that have severely eroded civil libertie in this country. The legislative changes that give unprecedented powers to even low-level security personnel, that allow extensive surveillance on citizens without any reason other than the purported suspicion of someone, and the power to arrest and hold without charge for lengthy periods are just some of the perfidies that…

The New Australia – Illegality legitimised

So, Australia now has a probably illegal Prime Minister who endorses the use of public funds being paid to bribe human traffickers – criminals the World over – to defraud desperate victims of poverty, persecution or untenable life situations who are simply seeking safe-haven in what is supposed to be one of the most freedom rich and democratic countries in the World.
