  1. LOL we have human rights in Australia, you just need to buy them in complete package from one of the govt corporate-sponsored stores, like myers, harvey norman or bunnings.

  2. Australia is a nanny state. There are laws for everything, and miles of red tape and bureaucracy. There are cameras that look inside your car at your crotch area to see if you are using your phone, and number plates are recorded everytime you drive. This is already an authoritarian country. But australia is/was one of the best places on earth to live.. china is extremely authoritarian, but they have elevated large numbers out of poverty.. does this mean that societies ultimately thrive best under authoritarianism?

  3. So to become a dictator in Australia, all you need to do is co-opt the media (DONE) and the Opposition (Done) and, what was the third thing that protects our rights?…

    Oh yeah! Co-opt the legal profession too!

    Got it!

    What a ridiculous proposal for not needing a Bill of Rights upheld as a legally enforceable document by a Constitution!

    All this guy talks about is theoretical and hypothetical ideals that DO NOT EXIST IN THE REAL WORLD WE LIVE IN!

  4. Our inherent freedom comes from our inherent relationship to mortality (to being & time). This throws us back onto ourselves and individualises us and creates the possibility of wonder, truth, truthfulness and community. This is why transhumanists will never succeed.

  5. The latest news out of Canberra. There will be ten Parliamentary sitting days in 2022 up to August. Australia will be without a Federal Government. WTH is going on?

  6. (Cultural Values (Human rights) ) Rights only exist if the cultural values of the society believes in and is willing to defend them. Our culture is feeding narcissistic/selfish personality structures that exist in all of us. Which is why when we needed our rights most, those systems have failed. If your not educated (hold a single piece of paper) your ignored, if you do hold a single piece of paper then suddenly you need 2 pieces of paper. If you have 19 phd's in every field required to be heard, then character flaw will be found to ignore you. If no character flaw can be found. Don't worry one will be fabricated. Since repetition of narrative is the goal to confuse the masses, long enough for (irreversible damage) leading too the final trick. Oh well we all got it wrong = not a single person being held accountable. Repeat.

  7. Australia is nearly a prison state now. Hard to put into words.

    Taking away dislikes is very huge here. Might be time to leave yt and go to other places that don’t infringe so much. Unfortunately, only the many who can see truth would do so, while the sheep who love being sheep will not care.

  8. Nice academic view but our rights have been removed a long time ago. When we have a totalitarian/ Communist/ Nazi style/NWO/ corrupt corporate controlled government, it's time for we the people to resume those God given rights. Rights are obvious. They're not academic.

  9. "The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people's door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone." – Author Unknown

  10. I always thought democracy can be as bad, or even worse than a dictatorship when majority of the people voted for the wrong government or the wrong thing and it seems it is happening in Australia. Afterall Hitler first risen to power by people voting for him then turned dictatorship by introducing similar laws which enabled him to have absolute power.

  11. The level of compliance shouldn't surprise you when you have a highly politicised and very corrupt and heavily armed security police who are will not just willingly but gleefully stamp their boot on the necks of ordinary people. If walks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, then it's probably a Socialist Police State. And now, on the say say of one fat fart, my life and livelihood is targeted by my own government.
