Youth are protesting, demanding that Western leaders take action to mitigate Climate Change, in the mistaken belief that politicians are in control. Politicians are simply the lackeys of big business, which gives lip service to Climate Control to placate and gain support from the public, but it is big business which controls government in our capitalist system. It is big business which funds all Parties, big business which is emitting carbon, polluting the air, and trashing the planet with its planned obsolescence. It is capitalism we must attack, by taking control of government and wresting it from the grip of big business enterprise. We can do that by swamping Government with Independents. We need individuals with integrity, humanity, common sense and people skills to STAND FOR PARLIAMENT AS INDEPENDENTS. Come mothers and fathers throughout the land! If you care for your children's future, then STAND! The parents, grand-parents, uncles, aunts and older siblings of youth who marched in solidarity on 26th September, show your solidarity in a practical way by standing for Parliament, or at least voting for Independents you can trust at coming elections, State and Federal.
The Party system of democratic countries is becoming totally dysfunctional. Witness the mess in Britain, The United States of America, Canada, and France to name a few. In Australia, selection of candidates is undemocratic and the adversarial system makes for opposing good policies for the sake of opposing. We need a new style of government.
If we don't change, the democratic countries of the West risk going under to communism and dictatorships. Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it. Egypt, Rome and Greece fell. The British Empire has crumbled. The United States is in decay. To survive, Australia must change to meet modern challenges.
