Australia’s “irrelevant” Crimes against humanity are becoming blatantly obvious to those who know what to look for.

My 1st recommendation is that you check out the Tudge Fudge Fraud – Part 2 video:
My 2nd recommendation is that you check out the best ever description of Australia’s welfare. Incredible as may seem, the statement that Australia’s welfare system is a disaster, i.e. ‘It’s like assembling Ikea furniture in the dark’, was made by a former Western Australian senior public prosecutor who is now the Minister for Social services, Christian Porter. You’ll find his “assembling Ikea furniture…” truism to most enlightening, once you get past the intro blurb:
the reality check in Christian Porter’s comment is that the Turnbull government, like every other government over the last 40 years, actually has no idea how to run a national welfare system. There seems to be some mythical belief by politicians that less, money will solve the problem of POVERTY, especially poverty caused by unemployment.
This is not so.
THE CATCH-22 IN WELFARE POLICIES.
Back at the turn of the century, when Senator Vanstone was spruiking the Howard Government’s $140 million initiative to get people with disabilities into the workforce, Senator Vanstone stated that the Howard Government would not not employ the disabled as the government believed that “the private sector had the capacity to employ these people.”
A representative from the Small Business Council responded responded by (accurately) stating that “Welfare is the business of government.”
Both parties were in violation the Disability Discrimination Act by not wanting to employ disabled people.
Fast forward to 2013 and Tony Abbott’s destruction of Australia’s 100-year-old car manufacturing industry by pulling $500 million in subsidies. When asked why he did this, Mr. Abbott responded by stating that ‘Governments don’t employ people.’
So there you have it, no-one wants to provide the solution to unemployment, i.e. real, full-time permanent position jobs to anyone who needs one. Until our national leaders twig to that basic principle, Australia’s welfare policies will be like “assembling Ikea furniture in the dark.”
