... WHAT TERRORISM???
I am constantly amused by the level of stupidity and utter nonsense that flows from the mouths of our elected party politicians. Take the following for example.
In early 2003 every household in Australia was sent an Anti-Terrorism 'fridge sticker' by the Federal Government with instructions to display it prominently on their household refrigerator.
Well... I can assure my fellow Australians that as my family and I are conscientious and proud Queenslanders, I immediately affixed our 'fridge sticker' in a very conspicuous centre position on our ageing Westinghouse (frost-free).
Now, I am delighted to
report… there have been no terrorism attacks in our home so, obviously, it
While the above may be a little tongue in cheek stuff, consider the following pertinent quotes:
government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear ... kept us in a continuous
stampede of patriotic fervour... with the cry of grave national emergency.
there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that
was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it..."
Douglas MacArthur, 1957
is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of
a government resorts to terror against its own population to get what it wants,
it must keep using terror against its own population to get what it wants.
A government that terrorizes its own people can never stop. If such a
government ever lets the fear subside and rational thought return to the
populace, that government is finished."
I repeat, Terrorism… what Terrorism???
