'Out there,' in the 'real world,' there's a fight going on - which has turned particularly nasty.
'Alle Menschen werden Brüder' sounds pretty good - but it just ain't so, and getting ever less. The 'top' 1% or so have vastly increased their 'grab,' so much so that they are now choking almost the entire economy. In the so-called 'world leading' US, the 'normal people' (aka we, the sheople) are being massively sacked, laid-off or generally going unemployed. It's been a long time in the making, copied also in Aus - only the latest and so far last gasp having been Serf-Choices; at least the last 30 years (basically since the political assassination of Gough), of putting downward pressure on wages and careers both, what with continuous and brutal union-bashing, then down-sizing, out-sourcing and off-shoring; an ugly and wicked neoliberal design, essentially aimed at crippling the general population. 'They' said that they were building a 'new economy' but it was all lies; 1st low and going ever lower wages & conditions, then moving to pushing borrowing to support consumption. That was always gunna be a one-way, down-hill street, and Costello in Aus aped the trend and consciously helped it along with his (undeclared-imported) halving of the CGT.
When times get tough, the borrowing must not just stop but be reversed, and they're now saying that people have started to save - a misnomer, because one can't save before one is out of debt; any so-called switch to 'saving' is people desperately trying to lower their debts. But (there's almost always a but:) people who try to pay off debt cannot be buying as much as they did; in a so-called 'consumption-driven' economy, any reduction in demand means pointing that economy down a decline, IF continued THEN ultimately over a cliff - some things just can't be changed, even by so-called 'masters of the (financial) universe' clever-dicks.
Another thing 'they' say is don't gamble unless you can afford to lose; the fact that the stock-exchange indexes are going up is an indication that there's still a lot of 'funny-money' out there to be put at risk. Q: Do you think that's from people trying to reduce their debts? A: Nope. Further, Q2: The massive $US-printing (multi-trios!!?) is mostly flowing where? A: To banksters & their floozies, that's where.
In addition to the social-contract violating economic warfare being waged against us, we the sheople, there's a different fight going on - a false one, the pseudo-political battle. I say pseudo because it's not a real, let alone fair fight; with the Lib/Lab ugly twins we do not have real options, merely more of a difference only in degree. Look at war; no matter who we vote for, we still get war, most obviously in the US & Z-rael, but UK & Aus as well; all these have recently had 'regime' changes, but the slaughter of innocents goes on: murder for oil in Iraq, murder for pipelines in Afghanistan, in Pakistan war on the people basically for the hell of it ("Yes, we can!") & not just BTW, whack a few more Muslims, then Iran next-up for more "Shockin' Whore" murder for oil. The pseudo-political battle is used as camouflage to the domination-putsch being made by the mainly US-kleptocracy; they seek to dominate the world to rip-off resources (dribbling only the tiniest returns to sovereign resource owners - that us again, we the sheople), and as if that wasn’t bad enough, the domination-putsch is now being extended to impact their own sheople. It's all pure Nietzsche - and we know whose favourite philosopher he was.
The AusBC's Ms Baker makes herself a target because as ME correspondent she's based in Z-rael, i.e. in the bosom of we, the world's people's equal number-one enemy (the other being the equally murdering-for-spoil US.) Ms Baker's reports are dreadfully biased towards the Zs, as has been the AusBC reporting down through the 61+ or so years since the '47/8 Nakba (= disaster). Any reader doubting this can see it immediately, when I ask Q: Why have the Zs been allowed to perform genocide, ethnic cleansing etc. as part of a filthy and criminal process of murdering Palestinians to steal their land - without this vicious iniquity being effectively highlighted by the people's reporters, the AusBC? A: Because the AusBC's reporting is fatally - literally for the Palestinians, more metaphorically for our so-called democracies - fatally biased.
Note that the AusBC's bias is not "left" at all; they're not just pro-Z but they're biased towards the West's 'rulers,' the pro-war, pro-theft psychopathic kleptocrats that pull the strings - and are now in full flight, ruining our once jewel-like planet's ecosphere, on their way to attempting to make themselves even more obscenely rich. I have been reading a few comments to AusBC articles, when one starts of with "Well, Lib(Lab) this or that" one knows it's some dumbed-down, propaganda bait-taking simpleton writing, but the occasional one gets it right by pointing out that the real bias is pro- 'the establishment' - which can include the Libs; they are a bit *more* in the rulers' pockets.
Fazit; Q: Just who gives the AusBC permission to lie to us?
A: It *must* be so-called 'bipartisan' - which, by *not* offering us, we the sheople-voters any proper choice at all, is *deeply* undemocratic.
PS The worst, of course, is the eff'n insults: how *dare* they deceive, how *dare* they try to dumb the sheople-voters down? One can't blame the voters for being down-dumb-able (perhaps it's just the way they are) - but one *can* blame the AusBC for 'taking advantage.' The really big question is Q: "What's in it for the AusBC?" Do they get 'dumbing-down' bonuses? Or do they just do it for 'fun,' to have a big laugh at us, we the poor sheople-voters?
(One thing is 'fur shure;' the AusBC are not *of* the ruling class, never were and never will be. They are the tools of the ruling psychopaths, no more than jumped-up, per diem propaganda 'lackeys.' Boo, again!)
Then the ultimate insult: 'Our' AusBC. Traitors all.
not every AusBC lie (more kicks at Barker)
