Well here are a couple counter points;
1.) Civil war would almost be impossible due to the Governments aggressive disarmament campaign.
2.) Not enough Aussies think the Government is corrupt or even doing a bad job.
3.) Most Australians think our Political system is fine and IS doing a good job.
But on the flip side, if there were ever a Civil War or a Civilian Operation to Disband our Government, there would need to have safe guards put in
place to PREVENT this from ever happening again.
Here are a couple suggestions that I have thought of over the past several years.
1.) Like America, ALL Political Parties have a right to EQUAL air time via radio and television where a penalty of HEFTY fines for companies or
corporations that don't allow this with possibility of imprisonment for the head executives.
2.) All Government operations become 100% transparent in operation and funding. With ALL possible information being publicly available at ALL times
with the only exclusion being to matters of National Security. IE About current Political situations around the world with other nations.
3.) All Political members adhere to a strict Yearly Reporting scale very similar to the old school Report Card systems. IE If a political member fails
their yearly report, they are put on notice to change or be removed from office. 2 strike system, first a warning, then removal from office.
3.b.) ONLY the Australian Public can vote on this Yearly Report and the majority consensus will dictate outcome.
4.) No Political member or Group can accept donations from Companies or Corporations.
4.b.) Any political member or group with donation links to Companies or Corporations that sponsor or cosponsor any bill that would favour that Company
or Corporation directly OR indirectly will face prosecution.
5.) The political voting systems becomes VOULANTARY and 100% trackable. IE A person registers their vote and that vote is recorded to their name. This
will allow every person to check their votes during and after ANY vote to ensure their vote was cast correctly and no tampering has taken place. This
information will ONLY be available to the AEC, the voter and to any other person that voter allows.
5.b.) Any person found abusing this information will be prosecuted and will heavy fines or imprisonment.
6.) Any Australian Citizen has the right to challenge any political members station based on evidence of contrary political activity.
7.) Any Australian Citizen has the right to put forth legislation to be voted into Australian Law. (See current Australian Bill:
Citizen Initiated Referendum Bill
There are other things I have been thinking about like laws that are currently in place that shouldn't be there.
Too many over reaching laws that need to be removed to allow people to live a full happy life.
But that is different and shouldn't be covered in the scope of this conversation.
Even this post is a tad off topic, so please forgive me
