Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of our Republic


I’ve posted this film so that our readers/listeners/viewers can make up up their own mind, Yes we have our opinions, but I really do believe that it is your opinions that matter. The USA is meant to be a Democratic Republic isn’t it?, and here in My Country Australia, we are a federation, a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy

In reality the Queen of England almost never gets involved in the running of our country (The last real time being 1975 When Gough Whitlam was sacked), So shouldn’t Australian citizens be afforded the rights of a democratic republic as well, shouldn’t the USA, Australia and all other Democracies be given a say in the running of their countries, It’s our democratic right!!!

Democracy
noun

a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

Republic
noun

a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

I’m not sure about you, but I cannot say that our society, our country, our people are afforded their entitlements, their rights based on the fact that we are supposed to be living in a Democratic republic. We are not offered any resemblance of this, we the people don’t get a say in the running of our country. So my question is Why Not?.

And if Why Not?, what do we do about it, WE PROTEST RIGHT?, Well that’s becoming easier said than done, our rights to protest are being eroded as well, but that’s another story which I’ll look at shortly in a future post.

Back to the Video

My take?, It is just another example of self serving organisations running their own agendas and the citizens just having to “suck it up”.

What’s it all about;

“the first film to look at the events of September 11, 2001 from a scientific perspective.”

We will all pay for Howard’s hidden greenhouse debt

G’day,
Before you go on with this post I must say up front that I have always (since ’76) hated our ex-prime minister John Howard and his circle of ‘friends’ (both within and outside government) with a passion. He is and was in my opinion a totally dishonest, mean-spirited and stupid individual (clever’s not intelligence) who got to power because his ideology suited the resource industry and those who invest in it.

I believe we should take a page out of Norway’s way of running a country. They nationalized their oil industry and used the money to pay off their debt. They invested in education & services and are now one of the best educated and prosperous countries in the world.

Some years ago American corporations laughed at Norway’s intention to build deep sea oil drilling platforms… a few years later the US had to swallow there pride and buy their platforms from Norway. How do I know this, my mother’s Norwegian, I lived there for a couple of years and their treatment of a raging ‘Bush Boy’ from Kenya was a credit to their tolerance and understanding… unlike the treatment metered out to me by the British or Australian ‘education’ system.

Birth of the Aussie Greens

Treehuggers Australian Green Political Party

The pivotal ‘Green’ moment in the last 40 years for the Australian green movement was; in our opinion, the Tasmanian Franklin River issue. It was an issue where big business, bureaucracy, politicians and the media totally ignored the will of the majority of thinking Australians… and it resulted in the formation of the Australian Green Political Party.

Senator Bob Brown MD… or Bob ‘Green’ as I keep freudianly calling him, was at the forefront of the Franklin river campaign and later went on to become the leader of the Australian Greens. As leader he has remarkably, despite an on going campaign to denigrate him and the other ‘Treehugger’ Greens, been an outstanding representative for the Australian Green movement, and will hopefully tomorrow (24/11/07) in the Australian Election be given a still greater opportunity to represent the Australians who love the planet for it’s beauty, rather than those few who profit from it’s rape & pillage.
