Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

It's democracy, Jim, but not as we know it...

I made the comment elsewhere in this blog that democracy is a sick joke. I have been taken to task about that statement and so I pose these questions:

Is it a democracy if it's structured in a way that the two major parties can and do collude to freeze out any emerging third political force?

Is it a democracy if the rich and powerful can and do manipulate the media and even our education system?

I've been tempted for a while now to start a new blog titled "Dictator Of Australia", for the express purpose of ranting about what I would do if I were in power. :-)

Someone (Churchill?) once said something along the lines of - 'democracy is not perfect .. but it's better that absolute dictatorship".
