The Abbott govt. in Australia was the worst one I ever lived under in any OECD country. It is not only doing its best to destroy the environment and the economy it is not even helping the rich, its raison d’etre. It is helping nobody and nothing.
The majority of Oz’s politicians are self serving, short sighted idiots. The government and the opposition are remarkably similar. Recent ex PM Malcolm Turnbull was one of the better ones but was politically assassinated by his own party.
The fact that a large majority of Australian voters elected them proves that Australians, en masse, are too stupid for democracy. If this horrid fact applies to Australia, how many other countries does it apply to? With the entire world in crisis mode it is blindingly apparent that the vast majority of govts. on the planet, democratic or not, are not equal to the task of doing their best to promote environmental, social and economic wellbeing for their populations. I haven’t even mentioned the word “corruption.” Greed and stupidity will destroy the human race!
