Welcome To City

The Prime Moron of Australia, tony abbott, has rolled out the welcome mat for indigenous Australians to relocate to major cities, by reminding them that they live in the desert and that cities are way better and you can get stuff in cities that you can’t get in the desert. In a political master-stroke, abbott has saved the nation (and the good state of Western Australia) many millions of dollars and enticed entire remote indigenous communities to relocate to the city, simply by making them aware that governments cannot “endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind … Continue reading Welcome To City

Conversation with big pharma on cannabis

Originally posted on PRAGUE POT:
Cannabis is one of the most dangerous substances known to man. It is literally worth locking you in a cage with murderers and rapists just to protect you from this plant. Praguepot(PP): Sorry big pharma did you say something? Big pharma(BP): Don’t mind me, I am just mumbling to myself as I lovingly look over my profit and loss statements for 2014. Praguepot(PP): Good year for you? Big pharma(BP): In the drug business, it is always a good year!

Trust Us

In a joint statement from members of the Global Alliance for Virtuous Banking (GAVBank), account holders everywhere are being assured that “banks are good”.  The statement was issued in response to recent revelations that HSBC had allegedly acted as the conduit for a paltry €180Bn of tax dodges, drug money, blood diamonds and bankrolling of terrorists. The statement informs banking customers that: There is no need for concern.  Your money is totally safe with us, and is in no way used to fund or support illegal or unsavoury activities anywhere.  That’s what Bitcoin is for.  You should really stay away from … Continue reading Trust Us

The Corporate Unconscious

Originally posted on Rev. Andrew Mount:
“No matter how large the corporation you are working for, it is always too small for even one human soul.” — David Whyte For the purposes of this paper, we assert the view that a corporation exists as an institutional reflection of the human ego. Like the ego, the corporation is fundamentally a fiction. For, the corporation has no true identity separate from the world in which it resides and the souls that give it life. The corporation is seen to posses an ‘unconscious’, much as does the collective psyche of humanity. It is… Continue reading The Corporate Unconscious

The Easy Way Is The Only Way To Go

Some time late in the 20th Century, a concept for corporate, social, and environmental responsibility, known as the ‘Triple Bottom Line’ emerged as the widely-preferred method for operating a business or organisation. The idea was to give equal importance to the profits or savings that could be made, the social impact or contribution that could be offered, and the environmental sustainability of the activity. It was, as stated previously, the ‘widely-preferred method’ for how to operate.  In hindsight, it seems we were all fooled by hippies, ne’er-do-wells, social workers, and naive dreamers, who were all probably communists. Economists, CEO’s and … Continue reading The Easy Way Is The Only Way To Go

Hey, You Can’t Sell That!

  Privatisation (or privatization, for my North American friends) – it’s one of my pet hates. You cannot sell that which does not belong to you.  But that simple little rule of life is chucked out the window when you’re a government looking for some quick cash. In Australia, as elsewhere I’m sure, there has been a long list of companies and assets that belonged to the whole country, under the ‘management’ of the government of the time.  From the poles and wires of our national electricity grid, to the power stations that fed them; to toll roads (another of … Continue reading Hey, You Can’t Sell That!
