welcome to psychocracy...

stealocracy

One of the main distraction about democracy is that "we" (not me) tend to equated it with capitalism. Thus when one looks at "western" charts where "democracy" is supposed to exist, one can see it's showing exclusively countries where capitalistic exploitation is king... 

In fact most of the capital system now survive on patent lies, as we've witnessed with the Australian elections. Same in the USA where the illusion of democracy is framed by a duopoly of honest ideals promoted by dishonest politicians in honour of a disgusting dollar. 


For example, one should not be surprise that profiteers in China are sent to the death penalty (I hate the death penalty).
In the west, Most crooks are praised for their business acumen at selling snake oil while lying through their teeth... From time to time, a few of these thieves are asked to pay a fine for having defrauded the system (not the people) a bit more that the elasticity of the corruption of the laws allows. No one goes to prison, apart from a rare "rogue' trader on which the system pins all the sins.

Someone like Abbott should never have risen through the ranks of politics, as we guess and everyone should guess he is a pathological liar — especially "in the heat of battle" where he will say things "he does not really mean" but which he really means, while what he writes with "firmity to be believed" is not worth the ink nor the blotter... Not good enough. Tony should have been snuffed a long time ago but his colleague saw him as their only chance to access the Australian government and destroy any whiff of social equity or equality in the system.

If you call this democracy — that is to say being governed by deceitful lying dorks and because most of the MMMM (mediocre mass media de mierda) of this country is stupidly under the spell of Mr Murdoch and also under the spell of its own entertaining shit — then it is not my style of democracy. it's idiocracy.
There is no honour is being so called democratic with undemocratic manipulation of thoughts in order to make the people of a country as stupid as can be...  And in stupidity I also include the old religious envelope which destroys critical thinking. 
We can do better and should be able to do better, but when people start to hum that greed is good, we're on a slippery slope on which most honest and truly clever people are sliding to the gutters while the most vile of hypocrites and psychos rise to the top like rancid cream on a milk gone bad...
This is not democracy. This is hypocritacy. This is psychocracy.  This is stealocracy as they also rob your brains of any proper democratic thoughts.

 

democracy and capitalism bad twins...

 

THE protesters who have overturned the politics of Ukraine have many aspirations for their country. Their placards called for closer relations with the European Union (EU), an end to Russian intervention in Ukraine’s politics and the establishment of a clean government to replace the kleptocracy of President Viktor Yanukovych. But their fundamental demand is one that has motivated people over many decades to take a stand against corrupt, abusive and autocratic governments. They want a rules-based democracy.
It is easy to understand why. Democracies are on average richer than non-democracies, are less likely to go to war and have a better record of fighting corruption. More fundamentally, democracy lets people speak their minds and shape their own and their children’s futures. That so many people in so many different parts of the world are prepared to risk so much for this idea is testimony to its enduring appeal.
Yet these days the exhilaration generated by events like those in Kiev is mixed with anxiety, for a troubling pattern has repeated itself in capital after capital. The people mass in the main square. Regime-sanctioned thugs try to fight back but lose their nerve in the face of popular intransigence and global news coverage. The world applauds the collapse of the regime and offers to help build a democracy. But turfing out an autocrat turns out to be much easier than setting up a viable democratic government. The new regime stumbles, the economy flounders and the country finds itself in a state at least as bad as it was before. This is what happened in much of the Arab spring, and also in Ukraine’s Orange revolution a decade ago. In 2004 Mr Yanukovych was ousted from office by vast street protests, only to be re-elected to the presidency (with the help of huge amounts of Russian money) in 2010, after the opposition politicians who replaced him turned out to be just as hopeless.

Here for example the amount of money spent by the Russians is fully mentioned while the money spent by the West isn't... Hypocritical article?... Possibly yes.

populism sprouts in brussels...

 

BRUSSELS — An angry eruption of populist insurgency in the elections for the European Parliament rippled across the Continent on Monday, unnerving the political establishment and calling into question the very institutions and assumptions at the heart of Europe’s post-World War II order.

Four days of balloting across 28 countries elected scores of rebellious outsiders, including a clutch of xenophobes, racists and even neo-Nazis. In Britain, Denmark, France and Greece, insurgent forces from the far right and, in Greece’s case, also from the radical left stunned the established political parties.

President François Hollande of France, whose Socialist Party finished third, far behind the far-right National Front, addressed his nation on television from the Élysée Palace on Monday evening, giving a mournful review of an election that he said had displayed the public’s “distrust of Europe and of government parties.” He added: “The European elections have delivered their truth, and it is painful.”

giving democracy a bad name...

 

After not even one term in government, the Coalition in NSW has been exposed as the most corrupt government in our nation’s history.

So far, the revelations uncovered by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has seen nine Coalition MPs resign or say they won’t stand again. It has even seen the resignation of former Premier, Barry O’Farrell. Actually, the Liberal Party in NSW has seen both leaders of the upper and lower houses of parliament stand down over evidence that has surfaced at ICAC hearings.

These are just the MPs that have fallen on their sword. There are many others such as former Attorney-General, Greg Smith and the factional power man, David Clarke, whose names have surfaced but have not yet had the decency to stand down or give a reasonable explanation.

New Premier, Mike Baird, was in the top job for less than 24 hours before, as yet, unexplained allegations of undisclosed donations from dodgy sources arose, as well as cushy appointments given to a campaign donor. It seems that there is nobody in the NSW Liberal Party that is untouched by this scandal.

The evidence that has been raised at ICAC in NSW has revolved around lobbyists, dodgy campaign donations, jobs for the boys, and people buying influence.

Little wonder Joe Hockey got all upset when Fairfax ran the headline:  

 ‘Treasurer for Sale’

Heaven forbid that anyone would get the wrong impression of Joe!

$30 trillion will gather in London on Tuesday...

 

Men and women who hold some $30 trillion (£17.8 trillion) of assets under management - that's one third of the world's investable assets - will gather in London on Tuesday.

Their purpose? To discuss practical ways to "renew the capitalist system".

The Prince of Wales, former US President Bill Clinton, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde, and Bank of England governor Mark Carney are among the speakers at the Conference on Inclusive Capitalism.

So what should capitalism actually do?

The BBC has gathered a range of viewpoints on the subject.

Capitalism has to prove to society at large that it is a forest for general prosperity and dynamic growth. Because of the scandals of the last five years and because of the growing inequality, it is up to business to prove that what is good for society is good for business.

The onus is on us now in the business and investing community.

Inclusive capitalism is really no different form conscious capitalism or progressive capitalism. It is an effort to convey that capitalism is part of a broad-based improvement for all of society, that it doesn't stand alone. Inclusive capitalism is good capitalism.

Bad capitalism is rigging Libor rates, it's selling instruments that are improper investments for your investor, it's taking advantage of workers, it's not caring about the sustainability of your supply chain. There are lots of things that are bad capitalism.

That's why we have such low confidence from the public at large in capitalism, because for too long we who are in business allowed bad behaviour. We have to acknowledge we have done some things wrong.

One of my main objectives in being the founder and co-host of the Conference on Inclusive Capitalism was to bring investors into a room, so that investors can decide that they're going to go to management and ask for more than just return on equity.

They're going to ask management how are you making sure that your supply chain will last? How are you engaging with your community so that you are still admired and valued by your community?

If investors say we are only going to put our money in companies that have a long-term view towards society then, surprise surprise, the corporations will behave that way. So our time horizon is 20 years not 12 weeks. That's the immediate objective.

Only an economic culture which has ceased to care about future generations could sacrifice so lightly the interests of people far away in geography or in time, and the long-term flourishing of the earth.

If capitalism is about value, not just cost, it would factor in the interests of our grandchildren and their grandchildren, who will rely on what we research, invest in and commit to now. Earlier capitalists invested and built for a future they would not themselves see.

We are that future - but capitalism has become careless about handing enough on for those after us.

But, replies the capitalist, "Capitalism only reflects its surrounding culture. Don't blame me if a short-term culture begets short-term capitalism."

Capitalism is usually too modest about its impact - and too quick to disclaim responsibility. We have lived so long with capitalism that it has taught us who we are and how to behave - but its anthropology is too thin to teach us to live well.

Capitalism is a complex of ideas and practices in tension with each other. The creativity of that tension has given the world innumerable good things. But the tension is inherently unstable and today's global capitalism has traded creative tension for unstable short termism.

This was in 2013... 

 

Now in 2014, after Joe's disgraceful dishonest budget:

 

 

 

The AMA has weighed in on Joe Hockey’s proposed changes to Australia’s health services:
 The Allergists voted to scratch them, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
 The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought he had a lot of nerve.
 The Obstetricians felt he was labouring under a misconception.
 Ophthalmologists considered the ideas short-sighted.
 Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Paediatricians said, "Oh, Grow up!"
 The Psychiatrists thought the ideas were madness, while the Radiologists could see right through them.
 The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.
 The ENT specialists didn't swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it.
 The Pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter...."
 The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
 The Anaesthetists thought the ideas were a gas, but the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
  
 In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the arseholes in parliament.
