Privatising Medicare

There are around 40,000 private health policies bombarding the “market” as private health insurance companies seek customers and governments cry poor while billions of dollars are siphoned off to subsidise private hospitals through the private health insurance rebate. Without the more than $6 billion a year in federal government taxpayer subsidies the private hospital system receives, it would collapse, virtually overnight.  more ...

After the end of World War Two the stay-behind armies are created on the experiences and strategies of SOE with the involvement of former SOE officers.  more ...

Culture & Life – Graft, corruption and business opportunities

For many bourgeois politicians, government is merely an extension of business, an opportunity to use public funds to make private profits. Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull certainly fall into this group, but the pollie who most embodies the phenomenon is US President Donald Trump.  more ...

All land shall become the property of the whole people,
