THE NEW ABBOTT FERENGINAR
How we can defeat the Right (part 3): Know Your Enemy, in 1 word and 3 sentences
When I ask people why they buy Murdoch papers and subscribe to
Murdoch TV and spend all day analysing Murdoch trollumnists and court
jesters they will at some point say “Know Thy Enemy”. Just exactly what
they learn about thy enemy from the movie packages and sporting channels I do not know.
However, so that you never need to purchase another Murdoch product
and further fund his propaganda machine, I have summed up the Right-wing
in one word and three easy sentences. It will explain their motivation
and predict their next moves.
What is the one word that explains everything about the Right, what they do, what they have done, what they will do?
Now for the three sentences that expand on that a little.
Their greed is unlimited, they wanted everything, all the money, assets,
resources, and all the power; in order for them to have everything, you
must have nothing.
Maybe I need a longer sentence.
Everything every Right-wing government and corporation has ever done is
about transferring wealth from the poor to the rich (themselves), they
will reduce your wages and spending power in order to concentrate the
wealth, power, and assets in the hands of the few, and when you have
nothing and your wages are $2 a day you will have no ability to defend
your rights and assets (private or community) as they are ripped away
and given to the already rich.
‘But,’ you say, ‘why would Abbott and his ‘boche’ government do
this, the Australian economy was one of the best in the world under the
Your enemy does not care about you or want what is best for you or
Australia, and they never will; the sick will die, the poor will starve,
the old will freeze, austerity suicides will rise, and they will never
care about you, you are nothing to them, except for your cheap labour
and the taxes you will pay to fund their parasitic lifestyle, and they
will do and say anything to maintain their wealth, power and assets, and
to achieve this they will deliberate crashing the economy means they
can bring in austerity which will slash your wages, increase your taxes,
and remove your services.
There you go, now you know Your enemy.
Ask most people what they want out of life, and they will probably
tell you “to be happy”, ask one of the self-appointed elites, the 1%,
and they will tell you “everything”. GREED.
In order for the Right-wing and the 1% to get their hands on your
assets and have you working for slave wages the Abbott government will
deliberate destroy the economy. It is difficult to convince a happy,
prosperous nation to privatise assets and reduce wages while people have
a secure, high-income job and can buy what they want.
Austerity means poverty, and with poverty comes fear. For the 1% to
continue fueling their wealth and feeding their greed, more and more of
the middle class need to be plunged into the worst abject backbreaking
poverty. At this point, Abbott and his government (and unelected,
faceless men) will “rescue” us, by selling our assets to their mates,
reducing our wages, cutting our services, increasing our taxes, “for the
People will die, they will go hungry, they will be forced to choose
between heating and eating, the old will give up on life, the middle
class who have lost everything will commit suicide, the sick will die
because health care is an unfunded luxury, the disabled will be allowed
to die because we can’t afford it, but, it will be “for the greater
Now, here is the thing, I don’t need to sit around all day studying
the Right to work out what motivates them (hint: it’s Greed), or
analysing what they have done in order to predict their next move (hint:
reduce what you have so they can increase what they have), I just need
to see the results of their actions which are destroying people,
communities, the environment, jobs, hope, our future and prosperity. The
end results tell me what they are doing is wrong and hurting people,
who cares why they are doing, it needs to be stopped.
Do the gedankenspiel (thought experiment) – choose any Right-wing
politician, any Right-wing media outlet, any Right-wing policy and apply
that 1 word and 3 sentences, you will find everything they do
fits into that pattern: lowering your wages, increasing their profits
and removing your ability to defend your rights as they are stripped
Let’s take Gina Rinehart as an example:
If Gina has $100 and I have $1, how much more does Gina want? $1
If Gina has $1000 and I have $10, how much more does Gina want? $10
If Gina has $10,000 and I have $10, how much more does Gina want? $10
If Gina has everything and I have nothing, how much more does Gina want? Everything I will ever have in my future.
The greed is insatiable, it will never be satisfied.
We are not people to Gina, Tony Abbott, Rupert Murdoch, faceless
corporations and Right-wing politicians, we are a means to an end, we
are no different to them than a machine that can be put to work to
create money for them. They want you broke and desperate, that way you
will take any scraps they want to hand out ($2 a day wages anyone?), if
the government reintroduced slavery, work houses for the poor, and
debtors prison they would be happy.
Meanwhile, if you need to keep clicking their links, buying their
newspapers, paying for their Foxtell and then spend all day analysing,
discussing, examining, dissecting, their Right-wing propaganda, from
Right-wing columnists, trollumnists and court jesters, funding their
propaganda, don’t kid yourself that you are “knowing thy enemy”, what
you are actually doing is Not Knowing Your Friends. The money
you are giving to Murdoch to tell you what to think that is money you
are not spending on left / centre media, which withers in the darkness.
Meanwhile, the Right is becoming even more powerful, and their media is
used a weapon for shaping public opinion and steering government policy.
One last thing… how does this help defeat the Right?
As soon as Tony Abbott is no longer useful to Rupert Murdoch, when Abbott starts costing Murdoch money, he is finished.
So, stop funding Rupert Murdoch, refuse to buy his sh!t, don’t give
his propaganda more power by talking about what his court jesters say as
if what they say is relevant, do not see everything through the Murdoch
propaganda filter. If you take away Rupert Murdoch’s money the
Right-wing elites will turn on themselves, and they will take their
greed will destroy each other.
