The Councils are well paid to endorse all this progress and even if we protest (that's a laugh.. folks grumble but protests are for the crazy hippy
folks now.. that's how it's portrayed, so that's what the majority believes) they do whatever they want
The crazy hippie folks are still around they simply sold out and would rather spend all their leisure time at the Blues fest or buying lots of gadgets
just like all those squares they distance themselves from so much. However this is not really news from my point of view.
problem is.. there's next to nobody left able to stand up, and those that are able to, risk everything so they don't.
Australia has never had a strong culture of rights or civil liberties anyway. Hence why libertarianism of any shade is not a big deal like it is for
our american friends here.
I mean for example think of what happened when a bill of rights was proposed not only did both sides of politics ignore it most dopey ordinary aussies
did also although i believe it would have been a good thing for Australia.
The same happened when we were offered a Republic we botched away our chance for what?
Just so we could continue to have the Queen in Womens Magazines, a women GG and the chance for all and sundry to kiss Prince Williams butt. I think
Aussies deserve their servitude for being so mega asleep and doing nothing about it. Even the majority of those that post here on ats dont take this
loss of liberty and privacy issue seriously most seem to think is merely entertaining subject matter.
