I have been seeing a lot of electoral campaigning issues given that Australia has a federal election coming up, and to be honest with you, I’m utterly fed up with how disingenuous and gutless all our politicians — or at least the vast majority of them — seem to be … so I decided to write an article explaining a hypothetical policy platform, to see how many people would read, share, and like it on social media; given also that I know what my blog has received in readership in the past, so it should be reasonably easy to tell if this does stunningly or unusually well compared to other past posts.
If it doesn’t strike a chord with people, then I may revert to my other plan of retiring to the countryside, or trying to find a way off this planet.

It has always bothered me that senators and others get titles like “the honourable” when they are no such fucking thing, and quite frankly they’re the opposite. What bothers me even more is the proportion of them whom are utter imbeciles, completely corrupt, cowardly, incompetent, disingenuous, and even bat shit crazy. Not to mention all the others in the bureaucracy, judiciary, police, ‘intelligence services’, and defence forces, whom are at least complicit if not corrupt themselves.
My question is:
How the fuck do any of these twats qualify to even run for public office in the first place, much less actually get themselves elected and then maintain their position, instead of getting themselves arrested?
— and I think Australia really needs to ask itself why it is so willing to have the very worst and least our society produces, as its so-called “leaders” … when arguably these people are making nothing but bad decisions, and I challenge you to prove me wrong ( ie: name and argue why any significant set of policies by any government in the last 4 decades has been brilliant and visionary ).
Many of these people are without question corrupt as fuck, as they openly take bribes, which is the very definition of corruption, and the mere act of rebranding these bribes as ‘donations’ and ‘lobbying’ is all it takes to ignore the fact that it is bribery, and therefore corruption. Our parliament is full of criminals.

I don’t know if this is a popular saying or not, but it’s something that’s been with me since childhood:
” … the longer you leave it to solve a problem, the harder it becomes to solve … “
which speaks to the entrenchment of problems, the flow on effect – including the chain reaction & domino effect of additional problems being caused – and the backlog of unhandled consequences.

For any action undertaken, 3 intertwining processes determine our course:
- Attempt to achieve consensus;
- Failed consensus results in conflict;
- Conflict is resolved through change.
So let’s have a look at these in the light of the status quo versus Open Empire.

I suspect this is one of the biggest questions in people’s minds ( skeptics ), about how we can live in a non-hierarchical, non-authoritarian, completely anarchic world … the mainstream narrative tells us such a thing is impossible, and that anarchy is synonymous with chaos – but nothing could be further from the truth.
