McNamara and Richmond got turned into Lab v. Green races, So a Lab/Grn MP no matter what there.
Everywhere else except Brisbane is just Lab v. LNP within a % point of each other at 70% counted.
Could end up with Lab-Grn de-facto coalition, Could still just be a Lab majority at this point.

Spoke to my mum again, she ended up voting for UAP and One Nation. Didn't know who the other left parties were, preferenced the Greens low because Bandt is a twat and global warming is fake.
Mid-way through the conversation she began telling me about nuclear weapons being controlled by aliens, the Pentagon admitting hundreds of UFO contacts, Lionel Munford, something about the Miracle of Fatima, and how they predicted the Ukraine-Russia conflict.
Coincidentally also saw this article in Crikey today

Looking at the election results so far, most of the country expect remote/rural areas in say QLD and NT swung away from the libs, whether it be to the ALP, Greens on independents.
However, I'm concerned that very working class areas of Melbourne actually swung to the libs - presumably through UAP/PHON votes. Yes, people are mad about lockdowns, but I do worry about the right wing radicalisation of working class people. I have one friend who has gone full blown nutter - she used to be pretty normal but all she does is rant about how the WHO is going to take over the hospitals and how the vic govt has been kidnapping children and shit. Its genuinely frightening to see someone lose their mind like this.

From this old 2021 article:

What a fuckin laugh. 'oh no there are vehicles in public think of the children'

 No.986870

>>986834
strange times, acp can't seem to get a break from the authorities. Although I disagree with framing the kitchen as a nice charitable "political commitment" where you don't actively recruit, it allowed for an unexpected political victory.

 No.986881

>>986870
Well it's not just charitable, it's aid with a political branding attached. It brings good reputation, sympathy and attention to the cause. Think of Breakfast for Children (considered by the FBI as one of the reasons the Black Panthers were the 'biggest threat to domestic security').
It also normalizes the party and makes it a thing people will resist getting rid of. If it was seen as just a front for recruiting, I think it would be more likely seen as nefarious than good.

 No.986936

>>986881
while i agree that getting on live tv and saying that the street kitchens are largely for recruiting people into the communist party would be counter-intuitive, at the same time you cannot build a party simply by being nice to people. A key component of the BPP's breakfast for children programme was politically educating the families which utilised the services. A key aim of any communist party is to equip working people with revolutionary knowledge and to educate people on how the problems that affect them are a part of a united system called capitalism. It's good to have fans and to be liked, but to get revolutionaries that engage in class struggle at the cost of their own personal interests requires more work and a different approach.

This article touches on it better than I can:

Whenever I see developments or news articles about development it makes my fucking blood boil. I see pretty pictures of the same shitty fucking cardboard building and the nicely mixed 3d renders of people playing in the park. Each as horrifyingly uncanny as the next.

How green the grass will grow,
How well contruction goes,
How exciting for investors and how honoured you are to know!
How much will be spent on this?
How much will be then wasted,
On the perfect type of plaster box with stupid fucking placement?

All the time we hear of "sustainability", "affordability" and how many millions of dollars are being put into the centrepiece of a rotting suburban hell.

How about I list off all the buzzwords?
Exciting, Elegant, Sustainable, Affordable, Social Housing, Investment, Prime Location, Townhouse, Complex

And worst of all, "development".

DEVELOPING FUCKING WHAT?
I see the same fuckhead drinking on the newly painted curb. I can smell the same fucking pollution beside the newly planted 7m^2 garden bed. I still see trash piling up behind the renovated road that leads to the industrial estate. I still find no shade beneath the withering and weed ridden nature reserve.

Pregnant and terrified, Tailah is moving into a tent with her young family
Their Bundaberg rental is being sold and for six months, Tailah and her partner Daniel have been looking for a new house for their family of five.
Daniel earns a decent wage as a traffic controller and the pair thought they would have no trouble finding a three-bedroom home within their price range of $300 to $450 per week. But as time wore on, they became increasingly panicked.
>"Unfortunately there are literally hundreds of applications for every single rental — there's just not enough to go around."

For we are one and free;

Of beauty rich and rare;
But brits came here and mined and cleared
And now the land is bare!
In joyful strains then let us sing,

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
We’ll toil through sweat and tears;
Though the fruits of such are not for us
They're for the profiteers.
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve got them cells to share;
While our own shall sleep on the streets

We can do that with china which will be good for Australia's economy

Play cards right and we could be Switzerland between China and US and reap the benefits, like complete knock down kits to do grey market importing and a bit of industrial development kickstarted if they sanction each other

USA needs us more than we need them and the chinese have signaled a diplomatic reset with the Premier of PRC in charge of negotiating a diplomatic thaw

We can be like the pacific nations, begin dialogue with a few friendly letters translate them directly into chinese with a literate translator if you want to be extra polite and do like those pacific islands but on a bigger scale

They cancelled a admittedly pork barrelled but nevertheless real deal with the french that would have improved our own technological capacity and allowed us to properly service the collins classes battery systems, but they even offered us their nuclear reactor 'technology' when the deal was scuttled

In exchange we got entrance into a bloc AUKUS that is only worth it as a binary barometer of USA interest in australia and an unreliable one at that

Play the cards right here and we could get technology transfer from Russia, China, USA and Europe by acting as a ckd kit middle man

Katter got one, Center Alliance got one, rest are independents, most of which are those new 'teals'.

The lesson is people like "independents" even when they are funded by a group of porkies that behave like a party. This could change the electoral strategy for socialists. Instead of running as Victorian Socialists or whatever, we could have "crimson independents" that don't use the S or C words.

Going in as independents is also good at containing blowback. There are 151 lower house seats and the chances of us choosing 151 people that don't fuck up campaigning are low. For example, if one "crimson independent" says something stupid, then it doesn't affect the other "crimson independents" that much, unlike parties where everyone is supposed to be representing the party.

The upper house is still better to run as a party because it allows voters to vote above the line.

>Instead of running as Victorian Socialists or whatever, we could have "crimson independents" that don't use the S or C words.
I am in support of this(….. is it basically just entryism?), but they really do need the media exposure to go with it. They aren't suddenly voting for independents despite their funding but because of that funding, or more specifically, how it was used.
>The lesson is people like "independents"
>2004: 3 independents (one was Bob Katter)
>2007: 2 independents (Katter and one of the other incumbents)
>2010: 4 independents (Katter and the incumbent, an ex-Greens candidate, and a by-election incumbent from 2008 formerly a Nationals candidate)
>2013: 2 independents (the ex-Greens incumbent and a new independent)
>2016: 2 independents (same 2)
>2019: 3 independents (ex-Green incumbent, the other incumbent's recommended successor in the same seat, and Zali Steggall)
>2022: 10 independents (7 'teal independents' incl. Zali, the two other incumbents and new Dai Le)
< +6 teals, +1 non-teals
So by naïve numbers, independents historically work better than open socialists and is potentially tactically advantageous because of the buzzwords like green and socialism but I wouldn't say it's a magic key to winning because people like "independents". If I counted correctly, there were 97 independents running for House of Reps. 10 got elected.

I wouldn't discount the significance of the specific issues in this election, primarily that green tory women were sick of Morrison's shit.
And keep in mind, these well funded independents did actually engage with their communities - it's not as simple as just slipping in some outsiders and hoping no one notices. The socialist parties are actually doing this and are making small gains in certain areas.

Socialist parties, even if they hate each other, need to not run against each other in lower house seats. Socialist Alliance ran 5 lower house candidates, Victorian Socialists ran 11. There are 151 seats, so why did they both run in Wills?

This matters because you don't get election funding from the AEC unless you get over 4% of the vote. In Wills, Socialist Alliance got 3.63% and Victorian Socialists got 3.11%, so they both blew their money.

>>997131
Also, only run female "crimson independent" candidates that are ex-sportswomen or doctors.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any trotskyite infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Unions have had a "fuck you, got mine" mentality since Bob Hawke. Unlike Canada (or the USA), unions will not help you find work, unless you're already well connected in the union. If you've already got a good job, unions might help you keep it. Unions only work for privileged people in Australia.

See how Labor governments refuses to do anything about unemployment. They don't give a fuck about lumpenproles because they're not already successful. Labor actively wants lumpenproles to suffer so they can show union insiders what will happen to them if they don't support Labor and the ACTU.

Neither are great names for exclusive use. Xinjiang makes sense from the Chinese perspective because it's a relatively accurate description of its status to China (New Frontier). East Turkestan makes sense if you're instead looking to emphasise it's cultural and linguistic ties to Central Asia.

>Much controversy surrounds to this day Calwell's handling of the White Australia policy. The 'Two Wongs don't make a White' statement has been used in textbooks and in the media to suggest racist attitudes on the part of Arthur Calwell. The Hansard of 2 December 1947 indicates that a question was asked concerning deportation generally and, in particular, deportation of a Chinese national Mr Wong, who had been in the country for many years. The Department of Immigration apparently had issued an order for deportation on the wrong person. In explaining this, Calwell was subjected to persistent interjections by a Liberal member for Balaclava, a Mr White. In concluding his remarks, Calwell said in a teasing way: 'There are many Wongs in the Chinese community, but I have to say - and I am sure that the honourable member for Balaclava will not mind me doing so - that "two Wongs do not make a White" '. One can only speculate why the press reporting Calwell's statement chose to exclude the capital 'W'. That statement then became 'Two Wongs do not make a white', a continual repetition of which, in the words of one of Calwell's successors as Minister for Immigration, Clyde Holding, 'made it a segment of both the attitude of Arthur Calwell and a gross assertion purporting it to be the base of our immigration policy'

If it was something like what neutral euro (for now) cunts do, or even with what was historically did with the concept of 'civil defence' i have no """""""""""""""""""real"""""""""""""""""""" issue with it.
The issue is that the only people that propose this intend the service to be some sort of 2 year long NeoCon brainwashing - Which is why instead of talking about it in terms of general preparedness for war, they talk about it in terms of 'MANNING UP THOSE DAMN LIBTARD!!!1!!!1!!'.

Self-determination for first nations people works, it helps improve living standards for them.
I'm a little weary of what it will be in practice though, the proposed change allows for the Government to legislate the structure of the mechanism, and I'm concerned this could just lead to it being made a box ticking exercise or even something that can be abolished by a Liberal government.

State stability through "appeasement". I.E thinking that representative politics/ democracy is what will save us and having an advisory role, but offering no legitimate and political reformation/ policy change will actually aid indigenous people. This isn't getting into the fact that mining companies also support the "indigenous voice". It's another example of decolonisation being co-opted by libs and the state to serve its own ends, as opposed to giving indigenous people autonomy.

All in all, it's just a way for the Australian state to create an illusion of progress but doing nothing other than change the appearence of their government, thinking that if we have indigenous representation this will help indigenous people as a whole.

>>1095047
>It is an exhibition that charts the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in Australia's armed forces.

Again, ties into the whole "if we represent opressed people in state institutions, we'll move forward as a country." Being Bisexual myself, I could give a fuck about gay soldiers, unless they're vets who've been fucked over by capitalism and are seeking to right past wrongs. Does it suck that homophobic abuse was levelled? Of course. Does this mean that we should champion LGBTQ people because they served our government? By this logic, let's invite cops to pride! Never mind that it was the Australian government which nearly passed the Religious Freedoms bill! Nah, it's alright, cos we got gays in the gov. Fucking unbelievable.

Ironically granting the indigenous voice and allowing a constitution of idigenous nations for the Australian state would actually allow for one or two options.

1. The building of dual power, in which indigenous people's can find build institutions that exist in spite of the state.

Or
2. Serve the interest of the state, as this will make the Australian commonwealth look better. Western countries can give themselves a good 'ol pat on the back and see how "TRULY progressive" we are- provided we don't get coup'd by the US because now indigenous nations have an element of control over their land.

Exactly, No on (Obviously there may be someone, but lets be real - not very many) in Australia cares about the 'ANTIFA TRANSHUMANISTS GOING INTO YOUR DAUGHTERS BATHROOM AND TEACHING THEM NEO-MARXIST C.R.T RACE THEORY', People just DONT talk about that kinda shit in the crib room at work when politics come up, 99% of the time, its muh debt or muh interest rates or muh Lebanese back welfare cheats - and fuckwit youtubers like Yemeni screaming that shit at Uni students on street corners shows just how Golemised by America our 'Right-Wing' is.

I'd genuinely argue that the Liberals approach of essentially turning us into the most politically illiterate but more importantly apathetic anglophone state on earth to create a smooth machine politics, instead of going the American route of in-school political propaganda and intentional miseducation has ironically made any attempts by the right to rile people up about gays or muslims or trans's or vaccines significantly harder for them.

Pauline maintains some legitimacy to a faction of people because she (Pretends, don't think for a second i take her as earnest/genuine in her actions) plays the role of the mythical 'Socially-Conservative Distributist' who puts up a doomed bill to 'BREAK UP / NATIONALISE THE BIG FOUR' or voots against an outrageously retarded Liberal policy even she knows is political rat-poison.

Weird American style 'S.W.E.A.T pledge' kissing your bosses feet and thanking him for giving you a job prosperity-evangelo-zionist open class-cuckoldry will NEVER be popular in Australia, Thus why the LibDems are viewed as such an unbelievable joke.

Pretty much. No one likes the libs for purely idpol reasons- though tbf and I'm going to sound like a broken record for mentioning this, the religious freedom bill was certainly a legitimate criticism- but rather their absolute economic and state mandated corruption.

Pretty much, given our cuts to education and them getting rid of the curriculum that taught us about indigenous history. Is there homophobia, islamophobia and transphobia in Australia? Absolutely, but it is a completely different beast to that in America, and usually most Aussies would be skeptical about your local kebab store owner being a terrorist, or the gays coming to groom our children or trans people "being everywhere"- don't get me wrong, they'd believe in some bullshit, but not in the sense that "we must kill them all" like a fucking yank would.

I'd argue she maintains her legitimacy through fear mongering about the Asian invasion and "dividing us by race" shite, but the problem is her solutions are fucking whack. Are there lebanese criminal gangs? For sure. Have Sudanese immigrants stolen a car or two? Probably- problem is she think that these problems can be solved via ethnic deportation- and hardly anyone in Australia wants that- again kind of looping us back to your point on the libs goal of making us politically illiterate and apathetic.

It's why the libs are seen as a joke too, lol.

I feel like were definitely one of the countries in the wake of covid where an opposite situation to countries like America where the institutional 'left' is withering-on-the-vine while the 'right' is emboldened has emerged where our 'Right' is definitively the one withering on the vine while vaguely 'leftist' ideas become more commonly discussed (I guess other examples would be how the scots and Irish are once more emboldened after the disaster of Johnson, And Macron fading in France while a dark horse coalition of the SocDems and the PCF+100 trot splitter groups cuck him out of parliamentary majority) .

Everyone from Palmer to Yemeni threw EVERYTHING they fucking had at the wall just to try and let the Lib/Nat's eek out one last 'miracle', But it just wasn't fucking enough. Infact it was the exact opposite of the 'Palmer factor' / 'Palmer+Pauline+whoever the fuck else siphons voots to the lib nats' shit they were expecting.

More people vooted for Labor painted green (Once again, Not defending the greens for a second, what matters is the people who voted greens perception of what they think the greens are) with a guy who literally looks like a Soyjak leading them then any of these supposed 'freedom candidate ANTI-DEATH VAX LOCKDOWN populists' which was once again, an entirely imported Americanised issue

It's absolute adventurism, but I'd 100% go out there to those communities to help them for at least eight months.
I'd shut my mouth, and just do. If I got asked I'd comment briefly about Sakana, BPP, Zippos, etc. all the classics.

Now that does look promising.
I think these communities would do well to look to the indigenous people of North and South America to see how they go about autonomously organising and resiting in their respective communities.

I'm reminded of the Five Hundred Peoples idea.

A black flag with five "hand drawn" concentric rings, made of 100 dots each (eventually blending together as one circle in the smaller rings). Basically a confederation of the 500* Aboriginal peoples acting autonomously, insurgently, within the carcass of liberal Australia.

Yep. Make as much as you can doing as little as you can, minimise your taxes by every conceivable means, and use the extra money to support local orgs or something.

On this, btw, given you've "done law" and now no longer believe in shiet, consider it financial and economic praxis.
Just use debt as much as you can, minimise your taxes, claim back everything you can, get all the perks that the booj are allowed to access in the pay-2-play pay-2-win system, then use said perks to fight the booj.

I'm organising a local cadre to do exactly this. I'm no good on the streets but I'm a legend in excel sheets.

Example: One of the gang has a piece of bushblock in some bumfuck location. We're considering putting three goats on it because then it counts not only as "rural/regional" but also as "agriculture" so we can get massive tax breaks against it.
It's actually fucked how easy it is tbqh. Impossible for an individual prolly, but get a few of the gang together and it starts to work okay.
Also going to use the property to do fun stuff and let people squat on it.

"standard" Marxist thought isn't infalliable, and there's been enough changes in society and the economy, as well as discoveries in anthropology that there's stuff that Marx and Engels needed to re-examine especially considering that prostitution is a legal profession in Australia.
