Power, corruption, violence and hurt. – Michael Smith News

Power, corruption, violence and hurt. – Michael Smith News

Hi Michael,

I’ve been thinking over the last couple of days and there is so much to be said on this issue. The old saying that absolute power corrupts absolutely isn’t right. If you’re corrupt, you’re corrupt. You can say the legal system is corrupt, but can you say the ENTIRE system is, given the fact that we do see justice done albeit not enough ?

You can point to Nazi Germany and call it absolutely corrupted. This was done incrementally. This was due mainly to the suppression of the media through fear, violence, money and murder and this tactic was applied quickly.

When we were young and watched all those terrible black and white documentaries on Germany we asked our parents how could the German people not know and we were told because back then it was easy to control but don’t worry, it could never happen now.

Now we come to today. What happened the day Gillard’s former workplace was raided by the fraud squad? We were told that Gillard cried in parliament by the press and the controversy was over whether or not they were crocodile tears. We complained to the our national broadcaster and their reply was incredulous.’ We don’t report on rumours’ was the best they could say.

Is our press absolutely corrupted? Not Yet, but it is well on it’s way and this is being done incrementally.

This is one of the most important issues of today and the Liberals have done nothing about it. Our national broadcaster does not stick to it’s charter and they don’t intend to.

We have to ask ourselves why our current government won’t tackle this serious problem and remind them to ask themselves what kind of world do they want for their children and grandchildren. Our free speech is incrementally being taken away from us and we were promised by Abbott that he would remedy 18C. He did not. Why?

I see our society becoming absolutely corrupted in the future and there doesn’t seem to be any way out.

Gotcha Billy……you wanted a police task force and now courtesy of the PM you have it.

Mr Abbott noted federal Labor leader Bill Shorten’s remarks in February when, arguing against the establishment of a royal commission, he called for a police task force to assess alleged union corruption on Australian construction sites.

“That’s exactly what we’ve done,” Mr Abbott said.

“The Premier and I have established a joint police task force to deal firmly, decisively and swiftly with widespread corruption, violence and organised crime connections inside the construction industry.

“This is a joint police task force which should have bipartisan support.”

The threats from the other side are obviously more threatening than those coming from the Royal Commission for perjury.
