COVID incompetence and government stupidity is destroying society and accelerating the rich/poor divide. We need to take charge locally to save ourselves, as if state and federal governments are closed.
Government and corporate spin in pursuit of votes and profit, inevitably hide, override or distort the truth. We know they can’t be trusted.
Commercial media, for self-interest, provide GovCorp the spin they want. They are not free press.
But don’t let the complexity of myriad issues divide us. Caring people of great intellect, naturally lean in opposing directions on many virus issues.
Respect, patience and care are required in debates to discern truth and seek answers.
It is patently clear that mistrust and non-compliance spring largely from the light of intelligent debates by highly renowned, qualified, reputable people around the globe who are debating the science, equity, and legalities on a variety of platforms.

Clearly, behind the false bravado, governments and their advisers are also unsure about the scientific conclusions from incomplete and manipulated data. Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, the ABC has the resources and legal responsibility to provide us with balanced debate. The way forward, and the enormous economic implications, must be based on truth and trust. Engage with these humanitarians and experts in debate! There is no credible national platform for free speech besides the ABC.
The nation’s political mess illustrates what science has shown. Constant anger, stress and fear of backstabbing operates from the lower brain. Experience shows we make shocking decisions in fight or flight mode.
Humans evolved a prefrontal cortex to facilitate an inclusive, compassionate society, as demonstrated in tribal cultures, where all people had a place. We’re on an evolutionary threshold to do that on a large scale.
So, plan for December LGA (local government area) elections, with practical independents replacing many of the partisan combatants.
This is just the region to shine some light on new concepts, while others observe. The ideas are out there. We’re looking to get everyone housed, fed, and engaged in useful self-motivated roles towards the greater good.
Global corporations hoard all the liquid currency. Why not provide our own with the local crypto currency? Some of our more visionary billionaire invaders might invest a bit, to ensure each community member has a pocketful.
What goes around comes around. It will free our local economy.
