Ok so we stop mining...
There goes 35% of Australia's export revenue.

I have travelled extensively around Australia and I can assure you there is plenty of pristine outback, where you can drive for 2 days and not see another soul..
I think you have slightly exaggerated the extent of the mining in the outback.. And as pointed out already this practise is a huge part of your economy, in exports, jobs and industry (to name but a few)
Come one, what magical world exists where people live within their means by choice??

The Song is lamenting the loss of the blokes who built this country while being overrun by the rise of the soft cocks in the cities with their boufont hairdoos and cafe lattes.
Australia has and will always be the largest quarry on the planet and let me tell you they're only scratching the surface at the easy stuff at the moment. You may or may not know but in square meterage Pubs in Australia occupy more land that all the mining combined. And you need to get out more to find out how big this joint really is.
Having said that, fracking can go and get fracked.
The song is lamenting the selling out of a true blue race period.
Only those who have met true blues will even be able to begin to comprehend what this song is about.... he sang the song in code.
Australia is now in the hands of the maoist Chinese more than the even psuedo stalinist traitorous university educated spys/traitors that sold out Australia, despite the warnings of Churchill/Mcarthy.
We are in the neck embrace of the Maoists/stalinists...yet most ATS members reading this won't even have a clue.

I hear ya,
But as someone above me posted what can we do? What is it we should change and what are the consequences gonna be?
Is that statistic true, 90% of Oz now under foreign mineral leasing? I find that hard to believe but sadly wouldnt be all that shocked if it turned out to be accurate.
So anyway, you got any solutions or should we get a MOD to move this to the Rants Forum?
There is a difference in empty space and beauty.
True blue Aussies of all Colours/beliefs/creeds/backgrounds ...know what Iam saying.
You have no clue ?..if you are talking about this sacred nation in that tone ...none at all, you can travel for days and say you know this land, but only those... who respect it , love this land.
Its spiritual, cultural, its true blue, not work in the mines make a heap of dough, and tell ye mates how great those Chinese companies are.

The biggest concern is the mining of iron ore being shipped away to China, I think that in 15 years Australia will look like a doughnut with its centre completely hollowed out, will make a nice water feature in the middle though
