Im dooming fucking hard about the upcoming 2022 australian election since any even slightly left party is going to lose hard to the libs. I fucking despise both the greens and labor right for gutting any chance of being able to put up any kind of resistance.

Making because i think Aus/leftypol/ got slid off the board during the day of the cope. Tony Abbot proposes "floating prison islands" to be constructed on ocean platforms and "prison ships" to be built to "house migrants" in the UK https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/10/06/asyl-o06.html he's basically going to import the horrific and inhumane system that he implemented and used to basically kill several thousand people (Who literally did nothing wrong either under /int/ or aussie law) to continental Europe.
>>959779 what the fuck
Basically death camps?
>>959790 >>959787 Given the suprise im not sure if your aussie or not so i'll give a brief elaboration >Basically death camps? Yes the "Manus Island and Nauru detention facilities" which Tony abbott was instrumental in keeping open fit the definition of "concentration camp" in any rational sense of the phrases use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manus_Regional_Processing_Centre https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nauru_Regional_Processing_Centre Thats not to mention him sending back thousands of Sinhalese refugees to Sri-Lanka to be murdered even though everyone from the opposition and even our own security service was telling that by sending them back he was basically sending jews back to hitler in 1939 and his governments response was basically "Well we dont KNOW the government will kill them they could just be arrested raped and tortured forever!"
Good to be back. Fuck Tony Abbott and Fuck John Howard. Also RIP to anyone studying Arts

>>986303 First the budget circus now THIS. Anyone know whether they are just restricting imports or outright banning? Another question is where the line in the sand is located where the libs stop screeching that Chinese are subhumans and start grovelling to Mr Xi for mercy.
>>986342 >>986304 >Argus cited a Singapore-based trader as speculating that this “might be a case of tightening import quotas rather than a complete ban”. As for the second question I'm not sure, the five-eyes apparatus have been amping up Anti-China rhetoric, Libs could grovel but doubling down and blaming China for COVID and thus the economic recession seems likely and could accelerate things.

Said job may not even be long term as some are in it for the subsidy (both the agency and employer) - rinse and repeat. For example: >Mr Smith: Look I have been applying for all these jobs in plumbing as I am a plumber by trade <Representative: Well, you see you have to take any job. We have one here for you. Its driving a forklift in Regional NSW >Mr Smith: Sorry, I am plumber and I know plumbing and its quite the travel <Representative: Its the government's money you are taking and you have to take this job. How many interviews have you had this week? >Mr Smith: I havent had any this week <Representative: Thats what I mean. We can send you out, do the forkie license and the job is yours >Mr Smith: Okay... A few weeks later >Mr Smith: So have you heard back from them? I done the license and that... <Representative: They said that they wanted someone who has been exposed to the industry >Mr Smith: ..............................
Okay give it to me straight... If the LNP gets in at the next election, what's our next step? Australia is probably going to enter a depression, shit's going to get wild...
>>996680 People keep saying cyberpunk feudal dystopia but honestly for that to happen it would a certain level of organisation which just isn’t possible among the political elites right now. I don’t see us going fascist because the fascists are too small, too divided and too antisocial to cooperate with other human beings for something like a political coup. The best case scenario right now for a lot of the west short of socialist revolution (not gonna happen soon) would be progressive nationalists in the military seizing power, instituting a form of heavy state capitalism and guiding us away from collapse. But while that could happen in the UK, France, Etc, our military is too small, too weak, too scattered and even with police on side there’s no way for them to seize and hold the country like that. Civil war - as the US is heading toward, is also extremely unlikely for a fucking multitude of reasons. Honestly it isn’t really clear at all where we’re headed right now. We’re in unchartered waters, absent any kind of coherent revolutionary movement and in conditions which are extremely unique. Australia is an “artificial” country in many ways. It’s clear that if the liberals keep power things will get fucking crazy and then collapse, but how? In what form? It’s not clear. I don’t think anybody has any idea WTF to do right now, least of all the Liberals who have proven themselves again to be not only cartoonishly evil, but equally cartoonishly stupid. Some kind of protracted degeneration into mad max biker gang/church warlordism maybe? Idk. If we are going to achieve anything, I think dual power/autonomy projects emulating hezbollah or Latin American cartels (minus the drugs/murder) in regional Australia and the coming urban slums are the way to go, seizing as many niches as possible along the way. If we could get a shit ton of communists into a rural town like where I’m at or up in the NT or something and set up dual power programs we’d perhaps have a chance at forming a “stronghold” which could branch into a red belt.
>>996680 Co-operatives and mutuals (attachment related). tl;dr co-operatives return 6-fold the government funding. Wesfarmers, AMP and Dairy Farmers (to name a few) were co-operatives until they were demutualised in the 1990s ("thanks" Paul Keating and John Howard). We ought to support co-operatives, mutuals as well as unions rather than depending on a once in a generation ALP/LNP politician that fulfills their duties and not be a yes-man/woman to special interests. >>996781 >If we are going to achieve anything, I think dual power/autonomy projects emulating hezbollah or Latin American cartels (minus the drugs/murder) in regional Australia and the coming urban slums are the way to go, seizing as many niches as possible along the way. If we could get a shit ton of communists into a rural town like where I’m at or up in the NT or something and set up dual power programs we’d perhaps have a chance at forming a “stronghold” which could branch into a red belt. Regional Australia might get outright abandoned and delegated to the Nationals to do literally nothing but collect pay and taking orders from kulaks ("would you like chips with that?"). Like I mentioned to the previous bloke (or gal?) regional Australia might be obliged to form co-operatives rather than wait to be cared for by the government or be brought outright by foreign investors. Cities might become (more) miserable, the wining, dinning and splurge could only veneer so much before the problems get exposed. For the cities to be spared the misery neoliberalism would first be abolished. Retailers like Gerry Harvey want to import as much people as possible for increasing the market size whether its sustainable or not it doesnt matter to them as they have their bubbles unless they move next door to them, boy! Would they be outraged!
>>996680 The wave had already crested even before Rona and we were heading towards a massive depression when the Libs house of cards made out dogshit began to collapse (Which pretty much began to happen simultaneously with Rona) no matter what. We could have all this dystopian shit people claim could happen happen to us like a military junta, or the libs using Lumpen and off work proles as slave labour, Bunch of states secceding and the country basically has a USSR/Czechslovak style "divorce" etc etc But if the libs manage to hold onto power and not fall then we will probably follow the US route where the country just becomes completely hollowed out, Infrastructure and supply lines on shit like FOOD begins to collapse left and right and we just become a completely disintegrated collapse cult dystopia where you have to pass through the bikie gang roadblock and the church jerk roadblock and the rebel group roadblock before you get to the supermarket to buy grain or whatever

>>1000667 don't worry, i don't think Sydney's elites have killed anyone since the 70s.
>>1000677 Either this is some kind of disgusting urbanite sydneyfolk reference I'm not understanding or it's really naive. Our elites kill people all of the time. If you're any kind of prominent businessman or investor or rich person, or even like if you own a big restaurant or nightclub in a major city you're pretty much guaranteed to have ties to organized crime to whatever level. Whether individual rich cunt has killed somebody or not, he's almost certainly utilized said organized criminal groups for his own purposes whether in a violent or non violent way. Same is true of the strictly political elites, MP's, etc. Both povos and rich cunts are fully aware of this, it's only really middle class people who have this weird squeaky clean view of society. Australia is if anything one of THE most corrupt and upper class crime dominated first world countries.

It allows them to then bundle up all the small properties that people are selling up so they can move to sydney or wherever the fuck into a big plot and sell it to Yank or Chinese companies. And if you allow me to be a bit conspiratorial for a sec Its centralising the land into the hands of as few people as possible in order to lay the groundwork for the Neo-Feudal dystopia economy their hoping to build where people will be made to 'work for their dole' living in bunks and pinking fruit 8 hours a day on something that resembles a poor plantation for mercantile era England Nationals and the "Right-Wing" of the Libs are literally actual Corporate-Fascist reactionaries.

Thoughts on this pasta floating around /fit/? >[Australia is a] Terrible country filled with terrible people. >Australians don't have a culture besides insecure material competition. They are THE most insecure people on the planet. All the "we're such an easygoing lot,'she'll be right mate' shit is just delusional propaganda, in reality it's all passive-aggressive shit, even "mate" is more often a passive-aggressive insult than a friendly moniker. All the "we're tough as shit because of all the deadly wildlife" thing is bullshit - we've had something like 3 deaths from spider bites in the past 40 years, and we're a country that machine-guns kangaroos from helicopters. We have this shitty culture of farmers and Queenslanders acting like they're "aussie battlers" doing all the hard work while suburbanites live off them - when the reality is practically the opposite, with farmers and Queenslands received all sorts of federal subsidies to keep them afloat. >The government and politics are given up to creepy statists. The women are toxic as fuck you cannot watch TV without seeing constant talk of "women and children", it's like living through the suffragette period. ABC in particualarly bad in this regard. Try seeing what TV shows the ABC produces these days - it's all TV shows about female investigators trying to figure out which evil toxic male ex-boyfriend committed whatever horrific crime against innocent female victim of patriarchy.

>>959779 https://www.aph.gov.au/petition_sign?id=EN1938 >Petition EN1938 - Royal Commission to ensure a strong, diverse Australian news media >Petition Reason >Our democracy depends on diverse sources of reliable, accurate and independent news. But media ownership is becoming more concentrated alongside new business models that encourage deliberately polarising and politically manipulated news. We are especially concerned that Australia’s print media is overwhelmingly controlled by News Corporation, founded by Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch, with around two-thirds of daily newspaper readership. This power is routinely used to attack opponents in business and politics by blending editorial opinion with news reporting. Australians who hold contrary views have felt intimidated into silence. These facts chill free speech and undermine public debate. Powerful monopolies are also emerging online, including Facebook and Google. We are deeply concerned by: mass-sackings of news journalists; digital platforms impacting on media diversity and viability; Nine Entertainment's takeover of the Melbourne Age and Sydney Morning Herald; News Corp’s acquisition (and then closure) of more than 200 smaller newspapers, undermining regional and local news; attempts to replace AAP Newswire with News Corp’s alternative; and relentless attacks on the ABC’s independence and funding. Professional journalists further have legitimate concerns around unjust searches, potential prosecution, whistle-blower protection, official secrecy and dispute resolution that should be comprehensively addressed. Only a Royal Commission would have the powers and independence to investigate threats to media diversity, and recommend policies to ensure optimal diversity across all platforms to help guarantee our nation’s democratic future. >Petition Request We therefore ask the House to support the establishment of such a Royal Commission to ensure the strength and diversity of Australian news media. >Number of signatures: 374471 >Closing date for signatures: 04 November 2020 (11.59pm AEST) https://archive.is/rq1aw

>>1040040 It seems to be, at least in part, the diffusion of the Protestant work ethic (which proceeds to consumerism to eugenics and phlegmatic "temperament", and not necessarily in that particular order) despite the secularism. Its not genetic per se for Australians to be complacent and passive (le phlegmatic temperament) it has been part of training and education, education and training. It may considered as non-coersively indoctrinated Protestantism (not that Catholics dont have their own issues and matters) - in a way it became a parareligion. Predestination, self-denial and the rational pursuit of economic gain tend to be among the basics of said Protestant work ethic: (Double) Predestination - those destined to be saved would be saved and those destined to be damned would be damned. For instance the Great Barrier Reef and communities affected by the Adani coal mine if they are destined to be saved they would be saved, if they are destined to be damned they would be damned. Supposing the government or the community or force of nature/Act of God doesnt save the Great Barrier Reef and the communities affected it "wasnt meant to be, oh well, too bad". Self-denial - Denying one's desires, needs, likes, interests and goals for said Protestant work ethic. Billy Bob's father owns a farm and his father more or less believes that his son is predestined to be a farmer like his father that he was "made for it". Billy Bob has been very much interested in literature and writing his own pieces, he remembers his father telling him that "there is no money in literature" . As such Billy Bob believes that it was predestined that literature was a damned path and there is money in farming. The rational pursuit of economic gain: Profit for its own sake being deified and aggrandising entrepreneurs as heroic contributing to establish a new economic order. Example, Elon Musk considered to be a hero for his profits and contributing in part to establishing (or continuing the established) economic order (neoliberalism, anarcho-capitalism or what not). His latest cybertruck predicted to continued profit for its own sake confirming him being idolised to usher a new age. You may notice some of the following aspects of the Protestant work ethic being applied in contemporary Australian politics: From Weber's Essay The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, albeit summarised. In relation to some Australians and their attitude toward welfare, work rights and minimum wage. >donation of money to the poor or to charity was generally frowned on as it was seen as furthering beggary. This social condition was perceived as laziness, burdening their fellow man, and an affront to God; by not working, one failed to glorify God Page 181, 1953 Scribner's edition; note also the attitude toward coal about the middle of the quote: >The Puritan wanted to work in calling; we are forced to do so. For when asceticism was carried out of monastic cells into everyday life, and began to dominate worldly morality, it did its part in building the tremendous cosmos of the modern economic order. This order is now bound to the technical and economic conditions of machine production which today determine the lives of all the individuals who are born into this mechanism, not only those directly concerned with economic acquisition, with irresistible force. Perhaps it will so determine them until the last ton of fossilized coal is burnt. In Baxter’s view the care for external goods should only lie on the shoulders of the 'saint like a light cloak, which can be thrown aside at any moment.' But fate decreed that the cloak should become an iron cage. From Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Weber's essay, which could could applied to Australia and overseas: >Remember, that time is money. He that can earn ten shillings a day by his labor, and goes abroad, or sits idle, one half of that day, though he spends but sixpence during his diversion or idleness, ought not to reckon that the only expense; he has really spent, or rather thrown away, five shillings besides. [...] Remember, that money is the prolific, generating nature. Money can beget money, and its offspring can beget more, and so on. Five shillings turned is six, turned again is seven and threepence, and so on, till it becomes a hundred pounds. The more there is of it, the more it produces every turning, so that the profits rise quicker and quicker. He that kills a breeding-sow, destroys all her offspring to the thousandth generation. He that murders a crown, destroys all that it might have produced, even scores of pounds. Even in countries that are not "Protestant" per se the Protestant work ethic has been diffused there as well. That tends to be upheld by politicians, institutions, media, education etc. Furthermore in Australian contemporary culture you may have heard those: "dont get too excited", "calm down", "dont get your hopes up", "settle down; seem to refer and imply the Protestant work ethic. The strong racial vilification of Aboriginals and other ethnicity seems to stem not from cultural idiosyncrasies, rather that their societies has been poor "therefore" predestined to be damned "therefore" eugenics. Which may even explain the "its not racist/ I am not racist" deeming themselves "pious" knowingly or not. The Irish Potato Famine would have been considered to be predestined and that Ireland was damned for it as it was not glorifying God by working hard enough and "thus" suffered eugenics/darwinism. If you would like to delve into this topic more I recommend you read "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism" which has been regarded as the 4th most important sociology book of the 20th century. The local libraries might have it, if not check the second link following this paragraph. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Protestant_Ethic_and_the_Spirit_of_Capitalism https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/weber/protestant-ethic/

>>1128277 >It's almost as if importing millions of chinese and indians would lead to poor outcomes in the labour market for youth and low skilled workers... It has been done by design (as you know already know probably. It has been about oppressing wages, work rights and freedoms. The hospitality and retail sectors tend to be quite precarious on wages, work rights and freedoms. Hospitality and retail used to be sectors where people could get a job to sustain themselves while they are searching for their preferred job if so (some chose to stay because they liked to). As the visa scheme dating at least to the Howard administration was being increasingly granted hospitality and retail were among the first to suffer. Then very likely requests were being made to the Howard administration for visa workers in construction and IT; eventually to other sectors too. The student visa scheme was also expanded greatly which plenty of international students sought jobs at hospitality and retail, and later, after graduation, at the "skill shortages" sectors. It was hardly ever about skill shortages and "lazy Millennials", those were farces. The petite-bourgeoisie of the hospitality sector after profiling for visa workers and using said visa workers as recruiters have now been undercutting their ex-petite-petite-bourgeoisie employers by running their own businesses and vicariously appealing to libtard hipsters. Now, the petite-bourgeoisie of the hospitality sector try to get the locals to feel sorry for them and that its so hard for them after they snubbed said locals, their friends and family. Likewise with the retail sector with retailers complaining all those years about online purchases (which by the way afforded Millennials things they could not get to the astonishment of boomers) and compelling the government to charge GST for online purchases (retailers thought it was due to GST and if GST was charged Millennials would be forced to flock to retailers - it didnt happen). There was little to no connection to the retail stores for Millennials as they, their friends and family were disappointed by them. Retailers considered themselves to be sacrosanct and like hospitality "take it or leave it". When Millennials left it they were scurrying to force them into it and with the advent of deliveroo, UberEats and the likes of those further reinforce Millennials being disconnected and disassociated from stores. It was said in the MSM for years that if there was communism people would be forced to share their home with strangers. Well, with the large stream of visas over 20 years people were coerced to share their homes with strangers to cover the costs of living. The cities for example have been more or less slums with 10 or more people sharing a place and unscrupulous real estate agents calling a living room: a bedroom. Visas have been arriving from countries were such practices tend to be the norm and havent discern otherwise slighting the locals for being too "pompous" to have a place of their own as its more fitting for the "rich". Electorates have tilted to the LNP as it was in the 2019 NSW and Federal elections as the policies and values of the LNP resonate with the visa workers from China, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, India, Nepal etc. past and present as they resonate in their home county deemed as a fait accompli. There other and more petty matters among boomers for aggrandising visa workers. They feed their need of a sense of superiority as those visa workers dont speak English very well (or at all) and they get to be their teacher (unlike the "pesky" Millennials that "think they know everything"); its amusing that boomers out themselves to those very people divulging their social Darwinism, Protestant work ethic overtones and overbearing behavior behind their faux grandfatherly and faux grandmotherly appearances. Also on the matter of pettiness those visa workers tend to be less "boinkable" which then tends to be less chances of them "boinking" their daughter (considering the instilled social Darwinism and Protestant work ethic). The large and long running visa scheme not only served to undermine fair pay and tilt the electorates of working peoples it also reintroduced ultra-reactionary and cultural capitalism tendencies that had existed in 18th-19th century England.

He was not the only one, its possible that others now in the ALP were declined application in the LNP. By the way I actually visited another section of Albanese's electorate recently. Considering the amount of gentrification (le "developments" and "apartments"), cafes and outdoor seating areas (likely charged council fees) the streets have cracked and the oval I encountered had its grass thinned (its still better than the oval around "here" which last time I checked it was sandy and gray). There were more "developments" being built and thus more approval fees and council fees to be due. There doesnt appear to be more utilities and improvement of current utilities in the electorate of Grayndler. One section of Unwins Bridge Road has been revamped which happens to be nearest to the Town and Country hotel (a pub).

My first gen Australian mother embodies this and she's fucking miserable because of it. We're probably even worse than the fucking burgers with respect to this because at least they have some semblance of a fucking culture they can cling to. Seems like an inferiority complex, insecurity and jealousy. The topic of money and "status" has become permissible partly due to the MSM aggrandising them, and its a common denominator. Not to mention the propaganda, narrative and pop cultural being fabricated. Feel inadequate? Get more money, retail therapy, splurge, spoil yourself. Also advocating for immediate gratification, dopamine hits and extending the protestant work ethic >I don't relate to ANYONE, especially first gen Australians. Second gen Australians are way better in every respect because they aren't raised by retarded first gen Australians I suppose, but I still don't relate to them. Socialising appears to have become very categorised (to an autistic extent maybe). One considered as a work mate, school mate, gym mate, travel mate, camp mate etc. Its like if they two or people meet each other in different contexts they regard themselves as strangers and rude to resume friendliness. An example (maybe an extreme and rare example) would be camping; people get together and treat each other ever so cordially throughout camp until camp ends and everyone acts like they never met and if they mention meeting outside of camp they became offended, stonewalled, empty promises of get-togethers and catch-up etc. For the sake of your health meet with people that have the same or similar hobbies, likes and interests to you. >Neither do I relate to people from the other side of my heritage (and that entire half of my fucking family who don't speak english) because my fucking dad didn't teach me the language for the dumbest of fucking reasons. Well thats frustrating... >When I think I've found someone who I relate to and they me, I'm soon shown that I am wrong despite my best and most sincere efforts. Trial and error.

>>1309552 Richard Broome "Aboriginal Australians" Reynolds is great but he is just focused on frontier violence. Broome gives an essential overview from pre-Settlement to now for the entirety of Australia and it's been my go-to since studying Australian history in VCE like 12 years ago. It's just such a valuable starting point that it should be on here. Broome's in the "broad left academic" vein but knows his shit. Stuart Macintyre's "A Concise History of Australia" is the only decent modern single volume Australian history (and it's by a prominent labour historian) and it's nice, short and doesn't cost a fortune last time I looked. I haven't read his history of the CPA yet. The two-volume Cambridge History of Australia basically has both a chronological and topic summaries giving a further overview of anything in Australian history to pursue at your own leisure. Not exactly leftist theory and from a broad range of historians but fuck it - it's useful. Charlie Fox - "Fighting Back: The Politics of the Unemployed in the Great Depression" was a fascinating look at what it says on the cover. Lot of lessons to be learnt in the way the unemployed organised back then. Geoff Robinson - "Being Left-Wing in Australia: Identity, Culture and Politics after Socialism". This is an insanely detailed look (I admit almost too much so) at the last few decades of left politics. Some here may not like his conclusions but Geoff also knows his shit.

Australian real estate agents face fines and jail if tenants told to use super to pay rent https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/apr/03/australian-real-estate-agents-face-fines-and-jail-if-tenants-told-to-use-super-to-pay-rent So we happened to miss this article from April 2020 (or did we?) Some highlights: >“We are also aware of people who have lost their jobs and have informed their agent, only to be told they have to pay the rent on time or find somewhere else to live,” she said. >“We are also seeing letters telling renters they need to withdraw money from their super or making them provide detailed information on their spending habits before rent relief would be considered. >“Some unlucky people are having their rent put up at the same time as they have just lost their job due to coronavirus.” >Under Australian law, financial advice can only be provided by someone who holds a license. >In addition to jail time, breaches are punishable by a fine of up to $126,000 for individuals or $1.26m for companies. >In his letter to peak bodies, sent on Friday, Mullaly said Asic was aware of real estates asking tenants to withdraw super. >“Recent media reports and social media commentary outlining this conduct by some real estate agents is of significant concern to Asic and, we would hope, you,” he said. >He said Asic would also raise its concerns with the state agencies that regulate real estate agents asked the peak bodies to pass the letter to their members as “a matter of priority”. >“Tenants facing financial difficulty need sound financial guidance and potentially debt counselling,” he said. >“Specifically pointing them to and recommending them to consider the specific possibility of accessing superannuation is, again, likely to amount to a breach of the [Corporations] Act.” >In one email sent to tenants this week, an agency asked a series of detailed questions about renters’ financial situation, including their ability to get new benefits. >It also asked: “Have you checked with your superannuation fund as to whether you can access your super early?” Also in case your real estate agent/landlord has appropriated your rent and informing you that your account is in arrears https://files.tenants.org.au/sample-letters/s33%283%29.rtf Other information https://www.tenants.org.au/resource/complaints-fair-trading

>>1323818 >redpill me on aboriginal industry the Pre-colonial Australian economy was a blend between hunter-gather and agricultural. Aboriginals would hunt animals for food but they also built farms, houses, dams, etc. Their economy was organised along primitive-communist lines; property was communal and there was no state. A good up-to-date, easy to read book about indigenous economy is 'Dark Emu' by Bruce Pascoe. I'm sure you could find a digital copy on library genesis. >What did Marx write about the indigenous? To my knowledge Marx never wrote about indigenous Australians but he did study and write a bit about indigenous peoples in the Americas. He observed how their struggle against colonialism was an anti-capitalist struggle and that their pre-colonial societies were pretty much communist.

Fresh Grass Gone at Turruwull Park! https://roseberycommunitynews.medium.com/fresh-grass-gone-at-turruwull-park-88e67e395615 Background: Rosebery, Zetland and Alexandria have been industrial areas and generic suburbs (along with other adjoining and peripheral suburbs). The long-running industrial areas and peripheries have been gentrified starting from 2004-2005. These industrial areas, as far as I know, have been operated by two councils (City of Sydney council and Bayside council) with corresponding juristictions and as a whole have been part of the Kingsford Smith Electorate for federal elections. The councils and electorate have been administered by the Labor party. City of Sydney has announced to remove the grass from the parks in Rosebery, Zetland and Alexandria plus Annandale (Annadale tends to be more "inner west" relatively on the other end of the City of Sydney council) and lay plastic grass/astroturf. With the plastic grass dogs would be forbidden at the park. The move hasnt been discussed with the people living in those areas. City of Sydney Why is this important? The Kingsford Smith electorate has been held by Labor since 1949 which it narrowly beat the Liberal party in the electorate's inaugural elections. Since the mid 2000s the wide margin of victory by the Labor party has become less apparent with a surge and thereby an interruption in 2007 when Kevin Ruud was elected Prime Minister after about 12 years of John Howard being Prime Minister. The gentrification didnt slow in those areas as former factory areas were demolished for apartments, cafes and restaurants , and yet not increase in services (police, hospital, ambulances, schooling, parks, convention centres etc) or leisure except for singular aquatic centre with synthetic/plastic/astroturf grass. The Labor party it that electorate it seems has tried courting real estate developers, franchises and business owners to open shops in those once productive industrial areas. The gentrification of the industrial areas has introduced the same people that would vote out Labor for the Liberal/LNP party in the exact attempts of Labor courting and appeasing those same people - be it those "fleeing the pretentious lifestyle" and the influx of visa workers as well as investor visas who find the ideas of Liberal/LNP party relatable and digestible as it accords with conservatives in their home country. At first, in 1949, it would seem that the electorate was very closely split between rural and urban orientation. Once the Labor party won and urbanised/industrialised the electorate they later gentrified it. The grass being attempted to be removed without consulting the people living in those areas is but a part of the gentrification and the Labor party courting the "Liberal/LNP vote". Its socdem town. The electorate of Grayndler (Anthony Albanese is the member of that electorate) has been adopting a similar gentrification plan albeit it started later. By discussing and disputing the gentrification plans we can make our suburbs livable and enjoyable.

Everything you need to know about the new JobSeeker https://au.yahoo.com/finance/news/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-new-job-seeker-004037209.html Notables: >The new rate has been met with fury, with the Australian Council of Social Services describing it as “heartless”, and Greens senator Rachel Siewert labelling it a “cruel joke”. >However, the Government says the new rate acts as an incentive for the 1.95 million Australians on working-age income support to find work. Interjection: The government appears to be convinced that a $50 figure as an increase after the consecutive cuts to jobseeker accords to the $50 that their grandads used to get paid to raise a family. Not to mention that the $715.70 per fortnight ($357.85 a week) reminisces them of the 1940s and 1950s (approximately) when that was "Doctor money". In addition, the slight increase in JobSeeker, which would negatively impact consumption, seems to indicate to the "markets" (ASX 200 big traders, Self Managed Superannuation Funds and soon to be retirees) that there would be a "return to normal", the "snap back" and the share prices would recover after the 2020 tank. That it would reassure the "markets" and entice investment, perhaps a proverbial dead cat bounce which then the government would likely blame it on work rights, pay and general public services and propose "cuts". They might be dog whistling to small business owners who but for honourable exceptions tend to be uncharitable and have taken kind of Allan Jone's grievances. Having worked with small business owners they had been very nasty people that can gain common people's goodwill with candor, etiquette and mannerisms. Some had been dictators, some akin to used car salespeople. >Additionally, people who have been receiving JobSeeker for at least six months will be required to either engage in an “intensive training” program of short courses, or take part in specific Work for the Dole activities. Those who take on the Work for the Dole activities receive an extra $20.80, designed to cover transport. Interjection: those short courses tend to be a pyramid scheme and multi level marketing at a cursory perusal. Also Work for the Dole is an other scam to get free labour (le its not a gulag nor a work camp if its voluntary - sweetie). Wow Stalin much...). >And the Government will establish an employer reporting line to refer JobSeekers who are “not genuine” about their job search, or who decline a job offer. The Department of Social Services will then investigate and if they find the JobSeeker didn’t have a good reason to reject the job, there will be penalties. Interjection: But, those employers that were not being genuine about the Jobkeeper can only volunteer to return those payments to the government and not be penalised. As for the ALP they would be protesting this, rather briefly as they would find something to deflect to, while they voted along with the parliament on that.

Aboriginals also did deliberately cultivate plants and spread them across large distances. It isn't fair to call it agriculture though. The word agriculture means field-cultivation. Aboriginals didn't have intensive agriculture in the way most of the world has developed before 1788, it's more fair to say they were horticulturalists.
