Peggy Balfour, Mullumbimby

These days people whinge and whine about the governments, as though we are underlings, ‘vassals’ if you will, of the federal, state and local governments.

In fact the opposite is true. In a democracy governments are servants ‘vassals’ of the people.

The information in the following link was taught in schools until the 1970s when the Whitlam (socialist) government decided that public knowledge was a dangerous thing, dangerous for governments, that is, so was removed from the curriculum.

Listen and learn from this video entitled ‘The Australian Constitution for Dummies’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JihQw39hyG0

Our constitution is the birth certificate of our nation, agreed to by ‘We, The People’, who are the ultimate authority in the land. Governments cannot change even one word of our set of rules (common law) by which governments must observe and abide by without the permission by referendum of ‘We, The People’.

Send the link to your members of parliament as a gentle reminder as to who is really ‘the boss’ in our Australian political system.

If you don’t have a computer, find someone who does and watch the video with them. We have 40 years, an entire generation of government-imposed public ignorance to make up for.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online.
