I'm opposed to Australia becoming a republic, not because I'm a monarchist, but because I don't trust the incompetent idiots running this country to write a constitution based on real freedom. Back in the 1700s when America's constitution was drafted, politicians weren't in the pockets of multinational corporations and they actually believed in freedom over profit.

These days, any constitution written by modern politicians would give corporations carte blanche to do as they please, while allowing them to copyright and patent everything from atoms to galaxies. They would rob us of every human freedom established since the Magna Carta in their quest for corporate control of our lives and their lust for money and power.

I'll vote for an independent Australia the day I see all multinational corporations legally declared to be freedom-destroying terrorist gangs they are.

Awseome post Steve and well said. I may have had trouble articulating it but I agree whole heartedly, especialy "I'm opposed to Australia becoming a republic, not because I'm a monarchist, but because I don't trust the incompetent idiots running this country to write a constitution based on real freedom". Thats seriously good work. Thanks.

For this tumultuous century ahead of us, I want UK, Australia, NZ, Canada, USA, even Ireland for that matter, to become one united super country.

The UDC: Union of Democratic Countries, or some better name.

Despite the negatives that some will mention, our civilisation needs this to be done. To ensure its strength, freedom, future, and survival.

Overwise, looking ahead several decades, the Western world will be on very shaky ground indeed.

And this is why it is better to form a republic with a bloody revolution, wipe the government slate clean and write a constitution for the people by the people, making sure our freedoms are intact.

Filmed a few months ago at the opera house "Festival of Big ideas". This a an SBS abridged version. The original version filmed at the Opera House has been removed from Youtube because of copyright infringements ( I know right, how ironic is that!! see above)you can still see it by searching it on Youtube its 50 minuets long.

It's a bit ironic that you commies are complaining about corporations while typing on computers or phones and using Internet accounts provided for you by those same corporations.

One country that very famously got rid of all its corporations and remains corporation-free to this day is Cuba. Perhaps you'd like to try living there?
