My World Outside MSM: 11 July 2017

kitten on computer

The world outside mainstream media is a wonderful place. Every week, I will take you with me as I look back over my last week in my world outside the MSM.

Favourite News Article This Week

I always enjoy Alan Austin’s articles. He has a knack of explaining the complex so clearly.  Alan details in Independent Australia, the winners and losers in the Coalition’s Australia.

The Coalition’s Australia: Households lose, big business wins and debt soars

Despite the current world economic recovery, Australia’s gross debt has reached eye-watering levels and household income plunges to record depths with no relief in sight. Economics correspondent Alan Austin reports. JUNE HAS offered no joy for Australia’s wage earners, welfare recipients and families.

 Favourite Political Video Of The Week

This video popped into my YouTube feed yesterday.  The Lilongwe Community Choir singing Solidarity Forever for Labour Day in Malawi.  This demonstrates the importance of unionism the world over.  As a classically trained singer, it’s a big thumbs up from me for this acapella version. Watch the men towards the end. Powerful Stuff!

I mean, what’s not to like?

Favourite Blog Post This Week

My favourite blog post this week is written by John Lord, AIMN.  I understand there is a lot of apathy towards politics at present. In particular, the distrust of the two major parties. However, the two party system is what we work with. In a realistic world, it will be one of the two major parties that Govern. Therefore, I strongly believe the ideology of a party is extremely important to understand.  John discusses various political ideologies.

A party’s ideology or value system dictates the way it will outline policy but more importantly, implement policy.  The difference is crucial. For example, this value system underpins whether a Government will more likely privatise health care (Liberals), or ensure it is equally accessible and affordable to all (Labor).

My view is that many people do not take the time to understand what parties are actually about. More importantly, the Parties are not defining who they are and what really drives them.  This is an important contribution to a disaffected and disengaged population.

Day to Day Politics: Conservatism, change, and the right to rule – The AIM Network

Sunday 8 July 2017 “Socialism comprehends empathy; conservatism and its partner capitalism do not.” My post yesterday; Conservatives’ bizarre acts of self-importance evoked discussion that centered on change and the right to rule. Tom Tesoro on Facebook said; “They all sense their economic destiny, their power to shape their society to suit the elite they…

My World Outside The MSM

Thanks to everyone who has shared my posts this week. In case you missed them – My blog posts this week were:

PATH: Proles Accursed To HELL! Enough!

Since time immemorial, the worker has fended off constant attacks. PATH is another chapter in the Liberal’s playbook where they accurse the Proles to hell. A look at the Coalition’s Internship program.

House Music: Welfare Reform and Drug Testing

This is the first of a weekly blog about Parliamentary Business. This week: Social Security Amendment (Welfare Reform) Bill, Senate Committee Inquiry and a Petition against Drug Testing for Welfare Recipients.

Blankets Urgently Needed in Central Australian Communities

A once in 50-year flood has wiped out the supply of warm blankets in Central Australia. Waltja is seeking public support to raise funds for much-needed blankets.

Well, that was my world outside the MSM over the last week. How did your’s go?
