That chilling sound of gasping for gas comes from our Liberal and Labor leaders below fossil fool boots. Outdated industries must be allowed to die gracefully.
Government support distorts the markets, creating false demand. Capitalism has never worked for most citizens. It has always been corporate socialism by another name, and extortion.
It’s criminal to give our cash to organisations that secrete it away – business confidentiality tricks.
It’s time for the biggest economic reboot ever. Only individuals know their own needs and desires. Their collective wisdom is the only true indicator for markets in goods and services. They far outstrip government wisdom and effectiveness.
The cash splash indicated the possibilities inherent in a social wage. Go hard with generous, sustained free money, gifted equally to all people. Truly democratic!
Take courage, start too high, and pare it back slowly when the effects are apparent.
Oops! We don’t yet have the right people at the helm.
