“ …. . Being woke is a conscious decision to be a reactionary authoritarian fuckstik ….”

reactionary (defined)

adjective
opposing political or social progress or reform.
"reactionary attitudes toward women's rights"
….as in far right, conservative

Now I’m really confused; here I was thinking “woke” went with inner city lattes but all along it’s the far right conservatives who are woken ones. Who’d thunk dat?

No mate. Woke is exemplified by Vic Local declaring that anyone seeking lower immigration numbers is racist. It’s a totalitarian technique used to diminish and delegitimise contrary opinion. Woke is saying that you’re misogynist when you hesitate to declare that we should unfailingly “believe all women”. Woke is used as a sledgehammer to drive home the unfathomably naive message that only Black Lives Matter.

Woke is the tool used to arm the useful idiots in their fight against a confected race / gender/ sexuality war that is a distraction from the only war in town….the class war.

There is no race/ gender/ sexuality war in Australia. Don’t let the proudly ignorant foot soldiers of Capitalism tell you otherwise. Poor Hannah Gatsby is a millionaire victim because some heterosexual bloke told an off colour joke whilst she was within earshot. That’s the real issue. Certainly not the way Indian and Nepalese “students” are being weaponised against Australian youth in their battle for a living wage and access to secure and affordable shelter ….

Whatever woke is to you it’s not reactionary. A reactionary position is what the right takes in labelling something woke as part of the ongoing cultural war against anything threatening the status quo.

I heard recently there are a million empty dwellings in AU and yet we have a rent crisis, a homeless crisis, families flooded out of their homes up/down the coast and single mums paying $800 a week in caravan parks to avoid couch surfing and yet what is exercising the minds of the Swellnet intelligentsia?

I reckon we can walk and chew gum at the same time.
Neoliberalism and related government policies are a huge problem.
The two-party system is a huge problem.
The related impacts of both of the above on the environment are a huge problem.
And so is a culture of aggressive moral superiority that alienates moderate supporters, forces people to self-censor and negates nuanced discussion.

3 empty homes in my street purchased in the last 6 months by interstate buyers.

They could rent them for $1000 per week yet they sit vacant until they are ready to move in.

Is Australia starting to run the risk of being overly obsessed with left progressive wokeness, identity and gender politics, an indigenous voice, warfare on corporate profits, climate change politics, etc?

I think the basic, core issues that drive the strength of a nation need to be focused on: public health and education, economic stability and growth, productivity, research and development, housing affordability, real wages, military capability, regional political and economic integration, natural population growth, Asia-Pacific security, etc.

Seems that we’re running the risk of taking our eye off the ball.

Wokeness is completely fucking irrelevant when we’re locked into a cold and heating up war with China, which must think we’re a nation of retards trying to fuck a doorknob by getting caught up with things like gender politics.

Actually wokeness is completely relevant, countries like China and Russia are just laughing at the west destroy themselves from the inside out fuelled by wokeness just look at the USA.

While other countries people are proud of their country and culture and what they have achieved, more and more the west hates itself and see's being proud of you country and culture as almost a negative, especially being nationalistic, imagine if we were in Ukraines position do you think we would defend our country like they have?

Wokeness destroying west...???
Absolute nonsense.... Neo liberal policies on steroids are exacerbating the division of wealth which is the primary cause the the vast majority of problems facing the west, USA, UK and Australia. Again using Wokeness as a distraction. The people that carry on about woke culture are generally the sock puppets of the media companies that are happy with the wealth trickling up to them as the planet is destroyed.

wokeness versus neoliberalism...

aren't they one and the same?

an excellent article, from well before the shit well and truly hit the fan

an almost prophetic article in other regards

'peak identity politics'

one could argue they don't really rrally need to resort to sex work...

but they do

and they also put themselves in other vulnerable situations

You're victim blaming.

so call it that then... 'if you want...'

and totally and obtusely ignore the context of the abuse

to argue that the violence and abuse is the result of some widespread evil transphobia infecting the majority of the population that makes people go out and randomly bash and murder trans people is so fucking spurious its ridiculous... yet this is what you and the article are suggesting...

it's so fucking dumb its retarded... in the truest sense of the word...

Is the Referendum losing momentum?
If the Vote was held today the Indigenous Voice in Parliament would Fail.
Support has grown but it still falls well short, like the alienating Republic model fail!

That surprised tbb as ALP just won Govt on this very platform...so why are Aussies voting No!
Most likely they don't trust any PM pushing as hard as Johnny & Albo...rightfully so they smell a rat!

At this point it's only fair to salute "The Conversation" for getting ahead of the politics...Good stuff!

tbb was surprised how advanced the alternate back up model had advanced.

Do we even need a referendum for First Nation to have a voice in Parliament! (Answer is...NO!)
Dec 2019 Vic democratically elected Aboriginal Assembly progress Treaty thru legislation.
First Nation are given independent Treaty authority to oversee negotiations.
All of this without enshrinement as any incoming Govt would lose face if they tear up the treaty.

Sure! It's a claytons Treaty until someone tries to remove it...(How very dare you!) The outrage!
Enshrined by default as it can only be dislodged by stripping Aboriginal rights...Not a Vote winner!
In other words any opposition would need to run a Default Referendum to remove Aboriginal Rights!
No way could you remove this right without exhausting Campaigning to do so...good luck with that!
https://theconversation.com/first-nations-people-shouldnt-have-to-wait-f...

ALP can simply enshrine The Voice right here & now then let [L] run an opposing referendum!
Something no opposition would ever attempt to win back government...they'd fall flat on their face!

The argument is to follow Vic's lead as a model (Now!) To demonstrate that The Voice is harmonious.
ALP Albo has the numbers in both Lower & Upper Houses to run the Vic model & adopt The Voice.
Then let the passage of time slot the working model into the constitution at next or after elections.
Easy as pie with none of this mayhem and angst...Today we see Albo going rogue over this...it's not on!
No one will vote for this if Albo is shoving it down our throats....Howard's over reach all over again!

The very reason that ALP push for a Referendum is the very reason [L] can't win one from opposition.
Truth is that ALP need these First Nation seats to cling to power...hence the need for a Referendum.

Here's How & Why...
Last Election Conversation reviewed all Aboriginal Swing seats, no reason as ALP polls predicted a win!
https://theconversation.com/indigenous-votes-matter-and-not-just-in-remo...
However...these seats reveal more about the need for a Referendum.

There are 15 marginal Aboriginal Seats ...roughly 5-7 are 10% locked in/out rock solid (Not in Play!)
That leaves 8-10 seats of less than 3% margin over the last 2 elections ( Can swing either way)
tbb as well as ALP polls would include both elections for long term to cancel out any Scomo effect.

ALP can increase vote % in this population to secure these seats!
Crew can sniff this and are racing ahead of tbb...just wait up a bit...
tbb did check on these reported seats...

If Albo's Referendum could sure up these seats he locks in 3 terms of Government.
But first he must enroll record amount of Aboriginal Voters then lock them in with their own voice!

Here's How & Why?
Last Election saw [L] push for Voter ID to reduce Aboriginal turnout to win back these seats!
Sounds Dirty?
ALP are exploiting The Voice to increase Aboriginal Voters to secure helpful ALP > 3 terms of Govt!

A bit like going thru the motions...not this shit again! That's where we're at!
2 steps forward and 3 steps back...
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/30/only-58-of-indigen...

AEC Indigenous Voter enrolment is presumed as 10% above reality + (Only 20-30% cast a real vote)
2016 = 58% Aboriginal Voters (Reality 50%)
AEC dreamtime cave art
2017 = 74.7% > 2018 = 76.4% > 2019 = 76.6% > 2020 = 78% > 2021 = 79.3%
Sure...Whatever Mate! Dream on!

Referendum Reality
At best we can assume 70% Aboriginal Voters with 40% to Vote successfully in The Voice Referendum!
Not even all of them will vote Yes!
How will Albo tell the kids that only 32.58% of First Nation Voted in support of The Voice?
Quite Easy! ALP was Elected with lowest ever 32.58% vote....got a problem with that! Anyone! C'mon!
Anyone wanna fight Albo for the South Sydney Jersey...Anyone?

Exactly! Never about The Voice but all about guilding Gold Standard Votes to lock in 3 years!
Not just raising Aboriginal electoral rates but giving more reason to teach them how to vote for the ALP.

Now if UN were brought in...they'd tell Albo & ALP to shove their Referendum & give them The Voice.
Do not need toxic Comix or Weet Bix Cards...& shove the Chips up yer arse...just get on with it!

The Voice Referendum is being shoved down our throats instead of being exampled in Parliament.
Here's The Voice Polls = Jan 52% > Feb 60% May 73% > June 48% + 58% > July 65* > Aug 65%
However! When 2 propositions are include it confuses & lowers all vote to under 50%
Do we need 2 propositions....well unless we're mighty clever we may well do! (Not this shit again!)

Expert Panel Advice :
We must equally (Vote) to remove racially discriminatory Sections 25 & 51(xxvi) from the constitution!
This would need to be cleverly drafted within the The Voice referendum.
This is the suss trick that will make or break the Vote!

Do we vote to allow aborigines to first remove parts of our constitution before adding to it!
Coz that is a very different request from what is proposed?
Not only would the Vote Fail but Aussies would feel betrayed by all inclusive.
Yes! We can view these thorny devils in Video...thanx to the Referendum Council...
Crew will see that once the Referendum is all inclusive the Vote will be very even 50/50. (No lie!)
This will reflect Aussies giving up certain powers to share power evenly...see how it works!
Albo has never once explained this in adult fashion...he just screams at those not coming on board!

Lidia Thorpe on Shaquille O’Neil -

“He’s putting his nose into business that has nothing to do with him. He does not understand what is going on in this country, and he should not be commenting,” the Victorian senator said.

“I mean, he’s here for a speaking tour, good on him. But he’s also here for Pointsbet, which is about gambling, which is about destroying families.

“We have bigger issues in this country that we’d like Shaq to understand and know about, rather than think a conversation with the Labor Party is going to put him in good stead to win fans or win votes.

“It’s an insult. It’s actually an insult.”

Well said.

Albo should be embarrassed.

You have to make generally observations some how, these days the best way to do this is to see what everyday people are saying under mainstream news articles or social media, im not talking about what the fringes are saying like Sky or the Guardian or even the ABC we always know what people commenting in these places will say, im talking news outlets where its just everyday people who are not overly political where there is a fairly balanced mix of moderate Labor & LNP voters or true swing voters

A year ago the majority of comments under any Scomo or Government related article from these mainstream news outlets tended to be mostly negative comments about Scomo or the Government.

However now even these Scomo related articles are very heavily dominated by comments criticising Albo and the current government, which really makes complete sense, because most normal people are interested in current governments and what they are going to do for us and are concerned about the here and now, its only the fringes that are the type's that are concerned with X PM's and seeking some kind of revenge.

Scott Morrison will be making headlines for the next year or two , that’s my prediction/opinion . I think Albo and Labor are doing a reasonable job in their first 100 days but the oil/gas exploration is very very disappointing and needs some explanation about why they are allowing this to happen. They also need to rethink their 3rd stage tax concessions as this money can fund areas like health and education that need bigger funding. Albo’s explanation at the NPC to why they were going ahead with it didn’t come across as a good reason . He also needs to do something about the gas problem. They certainly have a big mess to try and clean up for the incompetence of the last decade and they haven’t fixed up everything in 100 days . See where we are in 1000 days .

Reckon Indo could be on IPA or LNP payroll.... Only real explanation for his views that are expressed here. One eyed supporter and uses the same language when discussing the same topics of the LNP talking points of the day.
Airbus Albo. Pfft.

Hopefully Morrison and a few of his colleagues are in jail by then.... ICAC I reckon will show there have been laws broken. Let's wait and see....

1000 days from now, fuck thats a scary thought.

My predictions are:

- Interest rates will be much higher.
- Housing wont be any more affordable to buy or rent but a lot of people will be in negative equity.
- Energy prices wont be cheaper and much more likely to be higher and more unreliable than now.
- Unemployment rates will have gone up from current record lows (thanks to previous government)
- Inflation might still be a problem or general affordability of goods and services.
-If we have another thing like Covid the way Labor tackle's it will see much more government control over your life.

The real question is will we have another true recession like in the early 90s by then???

Either way life wont be any better than what its been for the last 20-30 years.

In regard to your last question as I've said many times my heart wanted LNP to win the last election, my head said long term it would be better not too, it was always a win win.

BTW. In regard to gas and oil thing, i actually see that as a tick, it actually showed that despite what they say , that end of the day they aren't going to be totally irresponsible and ignore reality.
