Over 100 years ago a man half a world away nailed the conundrum facing us today



There once was a time in history when the limitation of governmental power meant increasing liberty for the people. In the present day the limitation of governmental power, of governmental action, means the enslavement of the people by the great corporations, who can only be held in check through the extension of governmental power. [Theodore Roosevelt, Address at the Coliseum, San Francisco, Sept. 14, 1912]

So how does Australian society fare if any extension of governmental power under an Abbott Government is primarily established to further the interests of corporations both great and small?
