Don’t agonise, organise against Abbott’s agenda

I agree; “mining, banking and energy industries to be brought into public ownership and under community control.”

 

On the lie that “the market knows best” and “privatisation is more efficient”, Coalition and ALP governments have presided over a $3.3 trillion transfer (in 2013 dollar terms) from wages to profit (that is, from workers to capitalists) since 1975. That is a transfer of more than half of all wealth in Australia.

Most of this has gone to the big corporations and the billionaires who own and control them. This is why Gina Rinehart’s wealth grows by an estimated $600 a second. It is obscene and it is totally ridiculous for anyone to suggest she has worked for it.
