Time for a new world order


www.smh.com.au

"The time has come, off the back of the current crisis, to proclaim that the great neo-liberal experiment of the past 30 years has failed, that the emperor has no clothes," he writes of those who placed their faith in the corrective powers of the market.

"Neo-liberalism and the free-market fundamentalism it has produced has been revealed as little more than personal greed dressed up as an economic philosophy.

The Socialists are waiting to punce and getting cocky: cant weait to see how they screw things up even more!

Kevin Rudd was born in Nambour, Queensland and grew up on a dairy farm in nearby Eumundi. Farm life, which required the use of horses and guns, is where he developed his life-long love of horse riding and shooting clay targets.[1] His father, a share farmer and Country Party member, died when Rudd was 11 and the family was compelled to leave the farm under hardship.[2] Rudd joined the Australian Labor Party in 1972 at the age of 15.[3] He boarded at Marist College Ashgrove in Brisbane[4] and was dux of Nambour State High School in 1974.[5]

Rudd studied at the Australian National University in Canberra where he resided at Burgmann College and graduated with First Class Honours in Arts (Asian Studies). He majored in Chinese language and Chinese history, became proficient in Mandarin and acquired a Chinese alias, Lù Kèwén (traditional Chinese: 陸克文 or in simplified Chinese: 陆克文).[6]

Rudd's thesis on Chinese democracy activist Wei Jingsheng[7] was supervised by Pierre Ryckmans, the eminent Belgian-Australian Sinologist.[8] During his studies Rudd cleaned the house of political commentator Laurie Oakes to earn money.[9] In 1980 he continued his Chinese studies at the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China.[10] Delivering the annual Gough Whitlam Lecture at Sydney University on "The Reforming Centre of Australian Politics" in 2008, Rudd praised the former Labor Prime Minister for implementing educational reforms, saying he was:

... a kid who lived Gough Whitlam's dream that every child should have a desk with a lamp on it where he or she could study. A kid whose mum told him after the 1972 election that it might just now be possible for the likes of him to go to university. A kid from the country of no particular means and of no political pedigree who could therefore dream that one day he could make a contribution to our national political life.[11]

In 1981, Rudd married Thérèse Rein whom he had met at a gathering of the Australian Student Christian Movement during his university years. They have three children: Jessica (born 1984), Nicholas (born 1986) and Marcus (born 1993).[

Or... We could embrace a world of abundance. We have the tech to cast off human slavery. We have what it takes to create abundance.

BUT... We are told we must scrape by in scarcity. We are told we are bad beings (but we would rather follow our bliss if we could afford to do so) because we make unethical choices when strapped for money and essentials.

I wrote a short book I am offering that suggests a way out of this wage-slave scarcity paradigm and into one where every one of the 6.5+ billion humans on the planet could follow their bliss within informed willingness.

U2U me if interested.
