GEE I dunno!!! maybe they lost all their funding? Less money, more money, enough or not enough, it's the scam that is at the root of our environmental problems right now!
The monetary system has reached it's use by date..It's not about accomplishing more for less anymore in my opinion. Even when a great policy is introduced, try and deal with the minions called Councils to get funded for setting up REAL grass roots projects. Clover Moore just spent a million bucks on a bike path from surry hills to the opera house, complete with inedible shrubs and park benches as part of the city's s'sustainable Sydney' project...In the same breath a fully up and running voluntary community garden was 'dismantled' to make way for yet more development. It's all a bunch of bull and you know what i'm saying is true right?
It's the whole system, it's incredibly flawed. We can accomplish the same result for no money all. We could just do the right thing for the environment right now. Just do it!..without our politicians, just because it needs to be done, using the knowledge, technology and resources we have right now. Unite and do it.
Politicians are the puppets, the managers of a system that has no substance to it at all. The polling booth is a sad distraction, a make-shift delusion, a spectacle - that relies on us believing a particular set of political beaurocrats can actually make life better for a population and that the people have real power to make positive changes through governments. We don't, we have no power through governments at all. Money is the ruler of our lives so mesmerised are we. The banks aren't serving us anymore, we are serving them and saving the environment is expensive!!! haven't you heard?
- Look at the whole picture, go right back into the history of the economic and political world. Look at the patterns, they're repetitive and predictable - just like the stock markets, You can predict war through the stock markets.
it's a big farce and i don't even think it's a conspiracy anymore. I think it's just ignorance, arrogance, and fear of change.
Just like in the matrix, we are born feeding this system our lives in return for our birthrights.
We nurture a world system intsead if it nurturing the earth and us in return. there is no cyclical giving or regeneration. It's all take and it's eaten itself.
The only reason i vote is to bring in the lessor of two evils it seems Rudd is fine for now, i prefer him to Abbott he seems a little unhinged to me, it's his energy...Costello was better actually. (hehe Abbott and Costello)
It's no use fighting it either, we just have to turn away from all this madness and go higher, do what has to be done.
Thank you very much, and I have to agree, a sensible evaluation of the current status of the nation, I also agree with you in that we have 2 evils, picking the lesser is probably more opinion than fact as they be as bad as each other. Yep, what you are saying is all too true.
I got a little suspicious when I did not see Senator Brown falling over himself to get on this bandwagon, I figure of it was pro-active and beneficial for the environment, they would be there helping push Abbots barrow, but we only have KRudd up there saying, well, whatever Liberal says is evil, cover your ears. It seems it might be a viable solution, but not in it's present form. I like the idea of more trees in Australia. I admit, I find the proposal appealing, but only want to pay into it (via taxes) if beneficial.
I don't know if we can ever "Just do it", although I must say I do like this train of thought. Ignorance from the masses is keeping us from utilizing Nuclear Power, which we could sustain ourselves with. Every single voter seems to think that means transporting Chernobyl over here and staring it up again.
As you say, be it one or the other, we have to do what is right, that was my point in starting this thread, but I really should have realized that politics will always have a personal attachment. Sorry for being grumpy. Top post.
