Democracy was constructed and implemented as a political scheme by which the people have all the power. Leaders are subservient to their people, meeting their wishes, protecting the interests of the country and people first of all, free from outside influences with a separation of the executive and the private.
That has failed miserably. Corruption reigns supreme, branch-stacking gave rise to our most environment-unfriendly ‘Prime Minister’ in years, and blank cheques are aplenty. It’s a disgrace, and it’s a lie. Scott, I refuse to use either his office or his surname, outright went around the back of flooded Lismore to avoid climate protestors. This man is not suitable for democracy, he’s a disgrace.
A democracy is about people, first and foremost. Declare your funding, cap and eliminate coercive funding practices from big business and big oil especially, which I KNOW funds a massive percentage of our government, in an international disgrace. Your people are calling out for climate action! Your people, the ones unable to afford the bunkers, the shelters, everything you can.
Our democracy is in shambles. Barnaby Joyce has young children, yet subjects them to a future of extinction. Scott has high-school age children also, does the EXACT SAME. They refuse to serve the people, they serve big business, they don’t serve the interests of Australians, they serve their own. 70% of this country vehemently believes that climate change is an existential threat that will wipe us out within 15-20 years, and our democracy has crumbled under blank donations, big oil infiltration, and a culture of denialism. Restore the honesty, restore the integrity, restore the common sense to invest in and protect our planet.
Kick out the liars that say we’d crash the country going green, it would save hundreds of billions of dollars in transport alone, not to mention the tens of thousands of jobs created working green energy and Carbon Capture plants, Australia can become the new Saudi Arabia, but of clean energy, but ONLY if we show the world that nature can be saved, and if nature goes, we go with it.
