Starting from the feckless Government of Bob Hawke and his "Worlds Best Treasurer", back in the 80's describing Australia as heading toward a Banana Republic because all Australia could do, "...was dig up some rocks..".
What has happened since Paul Keating coined the phrase Banana Republic?
Far from developing a relevant useful economy for services and goods, the last vestiges of manufacturing has been wiped out by the hasty reduction of protection of local production with Australia's complete reliance on imports. The CSIRO and other Science organisations were largely destroyed to keep American and British financial interests happy. The single desk for wheat export was dismantled to undermine the Family Farmer. Since the abolition of the single desk Farmers are selling their Farms held for generations by the Family to shadowy Foreign Agribusinesses. As a result Australia's food security is at risk.
No Australian is safe while the establishment is in Government and continue to rule. They are proven failures for Australians and proven winners for all sorts foreign interests.
If, there's twenty percent youth unemployed today there'll soon be Forty percent and after that, head toward 100% unemployment.
Don't believe me, just wait and see. The youth of this Country are being deliberately sacrificed for Multinational business extracting the Countries wealth, and the last remaining lucrative business in Australia for parasitic local industries, selling residency to Foreign Students and property investors, in an environment when Australian Youth cannot get a job.
There's no point being angry there's no time. These Governments only care about themselves anyway. There's only one other possibility, connecting with fellow Australians to forge Unity not lead by Governments but by the grass roots based on a creed of mutual responsibility.
