The illusion of freedom
We take for granted many things in Australia.We are insulated by distance from many of the worlds huge issues. Freedom is something we should both revere and seek.The reality of our lives is that we are born with one chance.Wars have been fought, diggers have bled and many have died fighting for and defending our freedom & the Australian way of life.
The reality of a society based on capitalistic pursuits is driven by the existence of servitude. The haves drive the have nots to produce more to increase their lot.Governments local State and Federal make it difficult to progress by taxing us heavily. Rates,fines for parking,fines for speeding, taxes for driving, fees for driving on roads.Registration fees,tariffs on, fuel fees for education and many many more but I think you get the gist of the mindset. These taxes serve two purposes,one to generate more revenue for governments. The other more sinister is to keep the status quo. They don't want the plebs breaking through to the rarified air enjoyed by the aristocracy.
I often ponder what existence would truly be like without government.What freedom truly looks like.Just removing oneself from the treadmill of life is whilst difficult to sustain holds great appeal.
To me freedom is being able to wake up in the morning and choose your own path,free of servitude and the associated constraints that come with it.
Our government has crossed a line by attacking freedom under the guise of National security.It is not their decision to make decisions about what we can say feel or think. People that died defending our rights have been disrespected by our parliament,as have all of us. The lust to control us.The hunger for power is what drives these draconian laws,not fear of terror. Just another lie served up to erode the rights of all Australians.
