Australia: human experiment in a bottle
Coming to your country…yesterday

“Imagine a vast island. Once a colony, it now rules itself. That, at least, is its claim. But foreign money and ownership bleed in. And on the other side of the world, it has a mighty military partner dedicated to spying and war. This partner says, ‘Do everything you can to accumulate as much information as you can on every one of your citizens. We will help. We will accomplish this together.’ The island is called one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but its poverty rate is rising, its government debt is 20% of GDP, and household debts are extraordinary. The face behind the mask shows suggestions that the party is coming to an end.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
The kind of top-down control that exists in Australia is unique in developed nations, because of two factors: geography and population.
Think about it this way. The US and Australia are comparable in size. US: 3.7 million square miles. Australia: 2.99 million square miles.
But population? The US: 318 million people. Australia: 24 million people.
There are 10 million people in Los Angeles County alone. 38 million people live in California.
Consider this quote about surveillance in Australia, from the Sydney Morning Herald, 6/7/2013, “Australians at risk in US electronic surveillance program”:
“During criminal and revenue investigations in 2011-12, government agencies accessed private data and internet logs more than 300,000 times.”
And that’s the access we know about. In fact, the Herald points out, “Under Australian law state, territory and federal law enforcement authorities can access a variety of ‘non-content’ data from internet-related companies, like Telstra, Optus and Google, without a warrant.
“Data access is authorised by senior police officers or government officials, rather than by a judicial warrant.”
Government requests for private information in Australia jump about 20% per year.
And then there is the sharing of private information, done in conjunction with the US National Security Agency (NSA).
Spying “density” per capita in Australia may exceed that of any other nation.
Along with surveillance, of course, comes control. Recently, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott (who once refused to vaccinate his daughters with the Gardasil shot) decided that any family receiving forms of government $$ aid would have that aid canceled, if they refused to vaccinate their children according to the official schedule. Soon after, he removed the religious exemption as well.
Now we come to globalization. Globalisation Guide.org spells out some of the effects in, “What does globalisation mean to Australia?”:
“Australian corporations participate in the oppression of workers and peasants in poor countries in Asia. Australian mining and forestry companies are involved in extracting wealth from countries such as Papua New Guinea, Irian Jaya and Indonesia, sometimes relying on military support to suppress local opposition. The Australian support for trade liberalisation, particularly in agriculture, has been used to open up markets in poor countries where Australia’s commodity exports put local subsistence farmers out of work. Australia has opened its own markets to goods made in countries that allow child labour, or forbid the formation of free trade unions. The Australian government has opposed efforts to include environmental and labour protection clauses in World Trade Organisation agreements. Australia places few restrictions on the operations of transnational organisations [corporations], which take wealth from the country, and are not managed in the interests of Australia.”
The result in Australia? The gap between the rich and poor grows.
And with such a small population, the Surveillance State has extraordinary access to the private information of those who see the big picture of Globalism clearly and are profoundly dissatisfied.
Add another factor: Pine Gap, the glittering jewel in the crown of international NSA spying. This joint US-Australia institution must be protected and maintained at all costs—and the Australian population must therefore be kept under control. No rebellions permitted.
Experiment in a bottle. Corral the whole population of Australia, spy on them non-stop, inject them with toxic debilitating vaccines, and keep them in a state of ignorance about what is happening to them and their nation.
Call this control right-wing, left-wing, argue about which leader should be elected—distract the population while cementing top-down power.
You are looking at the reality created for the world and its own population to see, versus the reality behind the front.
This is the pattern for every nation—but in the case of Australia, it looks benign and encouraging, because there is so much land and there are so few people.
The Australian government-money-corporate-military nexus has a much different idea about a thing called freedom and what it means. For them it is a useful illusion, floated to obscure the accumulating takeover of the population.
The people themselves appear to be in no mood for rebellion. They stare at the illusion, as clouds gather.
There is enough land in Australia for several dozen countries, but the psychology of unity and oneness prevails, as if the comfort of believing in a national character will provide sufficient sustenance.
In fact, decentralization of power should be the watchword. Independence, liberty, and decentralization were once major themes. But they have faded like posters on an old wall.
The globalized and spied-upon country is captive, an island in the stream.
When that point is reached, it is only individuals who can wake up the masses. As improbable as this sounds, it is true, as it has always been.
