How do we keep our people safe?

Since returning home, I watched the last two episodes of ‘Person Of Interest’ on SBS television. I’m left wondering if the spooks from the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) achieve anything other than messing-up people’s lives.

The $630 million ASIO head office is in Canberra with branch offices in states and territory capitals. The organisation, in 2013, had a staff of 1,740 spooks. To do what? ‘… to gather information and produce intelligence about activities or situations that might endanger our national security.’

The National security and counter-terrorism law web site is well worth a visit as it suggests that Australia’s position is precarious and vulnerable to acts of terrorism. Of course, there are even more laws in the pipe-line to keep Australia ever more safe from vile murderous terrorists [sic]. The question that must be asked is, safe from whom and who is the enemy? When was the last terrorist attack and by whom? Of course, the bulk of Australians embrace these measures as they fit with their largely conservative beliefs, ideas and values.

Australian governments (past and present) participated in the illegal invasions of sovereign Islamic countries. These invasions (with no end in sight) have serious results  from death of huge numbers of hapless people (combatants and non-combatants alike), destruction and pollution (chemical and depleted uranium) to regional instability to a weakened world economy: millions of internally and externally displaced people, unresolved regional political consequences, destroyed economies, theft of resources by the invaders. In summary, gross misery, turmoil, chaos, pain and suffering. Is it any wonder that Australian authorities are concerned for a backlash that is of their own making.

The mainstream media fabricates the consensus reality and television is the single most potent addictive mind control device for controlling people. People depend on the mainstream story, made up statistics, spin, illusions and omissions.

It’s a pretext that our leaders are defending us from danger. Rather they pretend to care for us; whereas power and money is their game. Australia is run by puppets kowtowing to whatever the US controllers require of them. Only a small inside group knows that wars are conducted for the benefit of the few at the expense of the masses. I’m impressed by General Smedley Butler’s words,

I believe in adequate defence at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

We must somehow stop these psychopaths making and celebrating never-ending-wars. War should be the realm of the extreme, of the abnormal. War should be the death of normalcy, not the norm it has become.

Australia should adopt independence in foreign policy, unafraid to express its views to the world and stick to our beliefs, and no longer follow other nations into wars of no direct interest to Australia or Australia’s security. Thus a sensible responsible leader with cojones would bring to an end the current strategic dependence on the United States and establish instead an independent Australia. That is the only way to keep our people safe. Wake up to the fabricated consensus reality!

It is bloggers, like me, who are the poets of our time.
