Australia’s closest geographical neighbour is the world’s second-largest island, New Guinea. The eastern half of this island is the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, and the western half is West Papua, now consisting of two Indonesian provinces. In 1975, Papua New Guinea was declared independent after decades of overlapping German, British, and Australian administration, and the post-war union of the Papua and New Guinea territories in 1949. In the same year, The Dutch attempted to leave behind an independent West Papuan nation when departing the region after 149 years of colonial rule. Indonesia, however, claimed rights of sovereignty over West … Continue reading Free West Papua
Mark down March 19, 2015 as the date that total surveillance went fully mainstream in Australia. Both major parties of Australia’s bent, broken and hobbled parliamentary system voted for metadata retention laws that will effectively turn all of your net-connected devices into telescreens. Don’t panic, though. It’s not like they will actually be listening in to everything you say or reading your facebook status updates, or watching you as you buy ice from your friendly street-corner dealer. No. They don’t need to. They will only have access to your metadata; ALL the data about ALL your data. And also, don’t … Continue reading Telescreen Roll-out Commences
Dredged up from the archives, from before I was who I am today, this has been one of my posts of enduring popularity. I think it gets lots of hits just because it has the word ‘fuck’ in it more times than it probably warrants, but there you go… Enjoy this old bit of junk from over 2 years ago. Aaah, those were the days… The world seems to be bubbling over with outspoken mega-rich individuals, promoting themselves and some delusional policy or social program, usually with painfully obvious self-interest at the core of their messages. These people are … Continue reading Narcissistic Billionaires – Re-Posted!
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

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
