Is Federation A Flawed Political System?

or just being mis-used by rouge politicians

Has COVID-19 taught us that the Federation style of politics is flawed or is it just that politics has become a dirty game with rouge premiers putting party politics first. Australia has a 3 tier government system which is based upon the Westminster system of government.  Federal government, state governments and local governments form the three levels. What Covid has shown is that the federal government  have limited powers in running a country in the event of a crisis. Even the establishment in a National Cabinet on the 13th March 2020 to try and establish some cohesion and co-operation between the states appears to have failed. With five of the states held by labour governments and only two by liberal has clearly presented some problems. While it would be easy to blame the system, it is very clear that premiers have put party politics first and foremost in their pursuit of winning the next federal election which is just around the corner. This is more a reflection of the dirty politics which have entered the system in the last 10 years or so. This begs the question is it time to explore a different political system, that is more cost effective, more efficient and operates in the best interest of the people. A great example of this is the UK has a population of sixty million people with 4 chief  Medical Officers, whicle here in Australia we have a federal chief Medical Officer and one for each state or territory mounting to a total of nine, for a population of twenty six million people. Doesnt that indicate an in-efficient, costly and in-effective system of government. We think it is time to start exploring this opportunity and put the question to the people in a referendum. 

Is Population Growth the Single Biggest Issue Facing Humanity

While climate change has been the single biggest issue politically over the last 20 years or so it is important to try and determine if climate change is a real problem or if it is a symptom of a much larger issue facing humanity. While climate change has been politicized which because of the very nature of politics needs to be examined, questioned, and checked for validity. So what if we were to raise an issue which is significantly greater than the Climate Change issue and no government or politcian around the world are even looking at this problem, in fact many are actively seeking to make the problem worse. It is important to try and grasp these statistics to fully understand the severity. Just 61 years ago the world population was around 3 billion, it currently sits around 8 billion. Now just think about that statistic for a moment to understand the magnitude of what we are saying. Essentially it took one thousand nine hundred and sixty years for the world population to grow to 3 billion people, yet it has only taken 61 years to grow by an additional 5 billion which is 160% more people than what it took previously. Now if that statistic does not frighten you then nothing will. To try and understand how quickly the world population is growing you can view the “World Population Clock”  

Since the Coronavirus Pandemic we have all become familiar with the term “flattening The Curve” The question facing the world today is how do you flatten the population growth curve? So why is no politician talking about this issue and why is their no discussion as to whether this is the real problem facing the planet today – not Climate Change. The predicted “world population” in just 30 years time is conservatively expected to be aroun 10 billion people. so a baby who is 1 year old today will only be 31 yeasr of age when the milestone is met. Again why are our political leaders not even talking about this issue, if you are a young person today then you should be very concerned.

Is Climate Change A Problem Or A Symptom Of A Much Bigger Problem?

Is climate change real? or is it the biggest conspiracy theory ever invented. While it is frowned upon to even suggest these sorts of questions we feel it is important to present an alternative view. Firstly when any topic or issue becomes politicised you have to treat it with contempt thats just the nature of politics. Al Gore was the main instigator of this issue when the documentary An Inconvenient Truth was released in May 2006, what is interesting is that you still have to pay to view this movie on you tube, which given its importance is a little suspicious to say the least. Wouldnt it be wise to ensure that as many people view this documentary as possible. Now we have to take into account that Al Gore was a Politican seeking to become president through the 90’s, you can view his biography at  The documentary “Planet of The Humans” by Michael Moore howevr can be viewed on you tube for free and presents some interesting information which includes Al Gores current activities.

it appears that the topic of climate change has been politicized, while there are a small contingent who are clearly passionate about the issue to a point where they belive the world is going to come to a swift end, many others are climate changed out, and frankly have got to the point where they dont care a less or question the science.  Gradually introducing renewables makes obvious sense, but it is important that we understand the importance of other fuel sources and that the extreme activist actually cannot comprehend the importance of other fuel sources to everyday life and that by removing the other fuel mixes from our supply, is not practical.
