Feel like doing a bit of good in the world and maybe making a few dollars ?

Dimerix ( DXB : ASX ) is working through the university of WA on new medication that could potentially improve the treatment of chronic kidney disease.

Phase 2a trials for safety just completed successfully showing for safety of DMX 200 their main drug . Also showing significant efficacy.

Orphan drug status giving a 7 year window of competitive advantage over a market that hasn't seen any real advances since the 90's . Kidney disease becoming exponentially impactful on global populations into the future.

They also own the technology that resulted in their recent discoveries.

1.5 cents per share.

Could go totally arse up , who knows ? A lot of present and future kidney disease sufferers would be hoping not. This is not financial advice ! I know fuck all. It never hurts to bet on the crew trying to improve the world though !

Breaking news - the greens are in free-fall after losing two senators to legal jargon from a "helpful" WA lawyer.

Funny how all of these "administrative" problems only seem to happen to the minor parties eg Family First, One Nation, Greens etc etc. The gloves are really off as far as trying to annihilate all protest parties before the next election.

Do you think maybe the major parties are running scared?

I think the guy's on the money.

For the first time in decades ("the renewal of a conversation that was rudely interrupted in the 70s"), after such a long and inexorable swing to the right, there's finally been the beginnings of a broader acknowledgement of the need to consider a social democracy as opposed to hardcore neoliberalism.

Old mate Guy Rundle covers it well but I think he could also add to the evidence the LNP's (relative) change of heart regarding their budget - they can see the beginnings of a swing and I expect that their very well remunerated advice has told them to act now or else face the consequences.

However Rundle is also correct when he says that if the "left" get it wrong , the right will continue to steamroll them.

I think you cut the quote a bit short andym

"This is essentially the renewal of a conversation that was rudely interrupted in the 1970s. However, should the left want to genuinely draw a mass to its support, it will have to abandon impossible notions of internationalism or borderlessness, and combine a social democratic politics with a genuine communalism, replacing the symbolic patriotism spruiked by the free-market right. After all, the only reason Corbyn Labour got a hearing was because Brexit had decided the question of open borders in advance, and in the negative. Labour simply had to commit to abiding by the referendum result and the public was satisfied. Had they been stuck defending open borders, Corbyn would now be on the way to being a Trivial Pursuit question circa 2027. Should the left fail to offer people the social democracy they want, the right will fill the breach, and this time they will not falter."

Did that guy just deplore racism and bag open borders in the same article?

Now we are getting somewhere!

Open borders was always a pipedream. 30 years of neoliberalism only exacebated inequality both within communities, and across the globe, making it way beyond palatable.

Get over it and move on, as pointed out above. If the left fucks this opportunity up they are well and truly doomed.

Surely someone has a better idea than throwing around terms like socialism. While I agree with much in the article, I don't sense many people have an appetite for socialism.

Besides how are we going to pay for all this reinvestment in services?

Especially when neoliberalism sold off all the government assetts. Then pissed it against the wall - in a back slapping festival enjoyed by the bourgoise from both the left and right - as they both deluded themselves that they were 'killing it'

Not 'killing it' at all....never were. Just an attitude from both sides of getting what individuals wanted and Fuck the rest.

Compartmentalisation again

combined with identity politics, it was a lethal mix.

A perfect storm of how to divide societies

"But under the new Tudge definition, unemployment benefits have risen and are adequate – “not a lot of money, but not complete deprivation”

Well..... As long as it isn't complete deprivation, I fell a heck of a lot better for those bludgers.
