Unfortunately, the government has the perfect fallback to our protests about basic rights in this country, in every sense, and in every occasion.
You don't need to use what we supply.
Be it electricity, housing, cars, food, petrol, the list is endless, the government only has to say we are not forcing you to use this stuff, you do
it off your own backs, and that's their cop out every time.
Making protest groups won't really change anything, simply because it's nowhere near election time. Perhaps if you did this next year, it may have an
impact, but for now the Labour Party in this country seems hellbent on wrecking what little freedom and right we have left, and seems persisitent in
not listening one iota to the will of the people.
If we are ever going to beat the system, the only way is walk away from it altogether. By not using the overpriced and overtaxed things we are
provided with, then the government, the banks and the corporations have no power over us. That means simply, no houses or mortgages, no cars, no
electricity, no internet, no supermarket microwave food, nothing the government has a hand in. We become completely self-sufficient and that is the
only thing that will take away the governments power. We can protest until we are blue in the face, we can march up to Parliament House and tear down
the doors, it will not make a lick of difference to this government, nor will installing a Liberal dictator come next election. It will just change
the idiot at the top making the bad decisions.
Don't get me wrong, I do agree with everything you've said, we do need to get off our collectives and start making changes that are good for the
people, but with so many people so deeply ingrained into the current system, real change will take years, if not decades to implement. We are just too
reliant on the system to want real change, and the most the majority will ever do is whine about it.
