    […] our latest project: GinaRinehart.info. Its first article disposes of all the socialistic criticism of her wealth and puts her family feud in historical context. Bait your friends with it. […]

    “The market is a democracy where every penny gives a right of vote.”
    “Critics should keep in mind that she actually has a better right to run the country than any politician.”

    A person who inherits a large sum of money, who has never stood for public office, never been elected by the people to represent them – has the right to rule? More right than representatives elected by the people?

    And anyone who criticises such a view is simply ‘envious’ of her wealth?
    I don’t know where you got this rubbish from?

      Why on earth is money so so important, if I was going to vote for someone to rule this country , I would vote brains before money. Money is a just tool to get by in life the brains to rule a country

    At first I thought you were having a lend of us all.

    I’ve read the Fetter quote but I just don’t understand it.

    A market is a plutocracy, perhaps. Maybe it is even a democracy – but a democracy of money only. That’s the whole point. Democracy normally aspires to be one man [sic] one vote, not one dollar one vote.

    Of course, there is not a perfect democracy according to this model, any more than there is really a perfect market. One notable imperfection of democracy is its limitation to operation within nation states. Another is that any democratic system has its own rules and structure which can be “gamed.” Another very big imperfection is the capacity of people with a lot of money to throw their weight around.

    It’s not a matter of envying Gina Rinehart, because clearly the scope for many people to have that kind of wealth is extremely limited. It’s actually a matter of fearing her and wishing to be protected from what she can and does do to get her own way.

      Yes John,

      Some of us only DREAM of an alternative to the bullshit political “leadership” we have, that at present have absolutely NO business savvy nor experience (not that ALL politics is that! there is the 150bill at present being “invested” in more arms to war that one day MUST be used effectively to be considered a worthwhile “consideration” of public funds!) Yet we dream, thus far only enticing Palmer to step up! I think “he” needs help!
      At present we have “ONLY” [by the largest majority] PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS IN THE HOUSE(S) and they have only one agenda, themselves!!
      In my life time I would like to see the difference between the maybe two different styles of “leadership”

      I think ALL Australians could benefit, as individuals and as a nation under the leadership of “one” who’s experience and will and determination exceed ALL the fucking rest put together!!!

      Yeah though til I hear direct from “the horses mouth” -directly .. it remains but a DREAM! [fucking hell!]

      I like “rich” people, I’m grateful I live the way I do because of “them” and NOT a bloody nigger! pocking in the shallows naked, looking for yams! – because of all of them I made my life comfortable, freehold, and do not begrudge those who’s will, determination, brains and skill exceed my own! I would happily SERVE that woman.

      Oh yes, service is a skill not a sentence.

    How about you do an article on Asbestos and the impacts to the health of Australians. Then link it in to Gina Rinehart courtesy of her father’s fortune, gained from Asbestos mining.

    People dislike Gina because she’s so incredibly selfish and greedy that she whinges about paying tax and being hard done by (poor little billionaire is on struggle street). Plus her industry is about destroying the environment (she also complains about “Green tape” e.g. any sort of environmental protection).

    Keep in mind that while she gets out of paying tax – the rest of us pay for it.

      Oh Winston!

      Really? First I wonder just where your life’s experience comes from .. following that thought Me Thinking it’s your vague realization you are not the man you pretend to be or would like to be , another fucking bed wetter!
      The macho men and anti feminist boys club of the day REVELLED in the fucking ASBESTOS!!! have you actually watched any of the documentaries surrounding all the court cases on the subject?? Only after, I think it was 1966, only after the first woman who entered the field/ industry, who in her first “10 minutes” said “Fucking STOP everything and clean this fucking filthy shit hole up! Fucking who in the HELL can actually work in such a fucking debacle?” WOW! By this time the “effects” of asbestos in some, including the wives who washed the clothes of their anti-feminist husbands, after all, these “Men” did not want to give their wives and daughters an option to “sexual slavery” in the form of house servant/ wife. However, the girls did win thanks to the war mainly, never the less ONLY following the induction of women in the workforce(s) have standards considered “Humane and more Just” been so and “action” thou wrongly in my opinion been taken to ensure the clock NOT be turned back! But that’s socialism for you, blame the employer for your own stupidity! some bosses are only number crunchers, the employees need do there jobs with consciousness and that some times means devoid of all macho bullshit and prejudices against their fellow beings, eg WOMAN!

      AND, as for the “environmental” destruction?? fucking hell!! Again a shared issue, however, mostly in the hands of employees! NO ONE can MAKE YOU do the wrong thing!! if you know better, fucking do better!! But I for one like living like a civilian not a fucking animal!

      Tax? Fucking hell, do you like paying for shit you don’t need or use?? It my make no difference in your life not to pay tax, or to pay, what can/ would you otherwise spend it on? “Gina” has something, HER BUSINESS! and fucking hell who are all the deadbeats that repealed the taxes or really failed to create opportunities from those taxes so as to further develop the country??

    “Gina Rinehart is evil wanting to employ people for below the minimum wage; and, there would be workers wanting such work.”

    Appalling sentence structure aside, these two statements contain more bias than your garden-variety republican referendum question.

    Why use ‘evil’? Why not simply ‘unethical’? It’s much closer to the truth.

    Sure, getting short-term migrant workers to dig shit up while being paid less than any Australian provides jobs for said migrants, and allows Ms Rinehart to dig up yet more shit due to the increased profits generated. But is it ethical to pay these workers less than the minimum that an Australian citizen is legally entitled to?

    Are they not doing the same work? In the same country? Is their work somehow less valuable, or does it add less value to the products they create?

    Simply stating that people would undertake this work is facile. Ignoring the ethical issues raised Special Economic Zones (which Ms Rinehart advocated in her execrable poetry here http://prestoninstitute.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/ginarinehartpoem/ ) ignores the fact that paying foreign workers less than what we would expect ourselves implies that we, as a people, are worth more.

    Apparently not a joke, but certainly a reductio absurdam. To take the most central point, Gina Rinehart has, to the best of my knowledge, never discovered, mined, sold or transported even a single kilogram of minerals of any kind (well, perhaps she transports a kilo of precious metals around with her in the form of jewellery).

    I’d be fascinated to read responses from other libertarians to this piece. Certainly, given their presumptions you can make a logical case that Gina Rinehart is indeed our rightful ruler, and that, should the courts decide in their favour, her children will rightfully inherit this position. Any system of thought that yields this outcome is obviously wrong.

    I think Gina Rinehart is a perfect example to show how silly these ideas are when taken, as you have done, to their logical conclusion. A system that produces Gina as our natural leader is as bad as a hereditary monarchy, or worse, given the lack of any noblesse oblige on her part.

    Robin Hood is not remembered as a champion of property, but as a champion of need, not as a defender of the robbed, but as a provider of the poor. He is held to be the first man who assumed a halo of virtue by practicing charity with wealth which he did not own, by giving away goods which he had not produced, by making others pay for the luxury of his pity.

    He is the man who became a symbol of the idea that need, not achievement, is the source of rights, that we don’t have to produce, only to want, that the earned does not belong to us, but the unearned does. He became a justification for every mediocrity who, unable to make his own living, had demanded the power to dispose of the property of his betters, by proclaiming his willingness to devote his life to his inferiors at the price of robbing his superiors.

    It is this foulest of creatures – the double-parasite who lives on the sores of the poor and the blood of the rich – whom men have come to regard as the moral idea.” “. . . Do you wonder why the world is collapsing around us? That is what I am fighting, Mr. Rearden. Until men learn that of all human symbols, Robin Hood is the most immoral and the most contemptible, there will be no justice on earth and no way for mankind to survive.”

    However, I guess if one objects to being ruled ruthlessly in an absolute monarchy, whose line of accession is based purely on wealth, where an individual has no right to vote, and no right of representation other than a single appointed individual voted in by noone..

    One must be just envious?

    By that line of reason… taxation that takes from the rich to give services to all, must also be based on pure envy?

    And the desire for suffrage… for a say.. must be based on envy also?

    If I am envious of all this, I am certainly not envious of your IQ.

    Thus my comment ends.

      For John Falken:

      “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.”

      The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

      The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.

      Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.

    Gina,

    I hope you get to reading this. You are a wonderful, virtuous, and productive woman. I believe you are on the right track and I admire you, you are the first prime-mover I’ve ever seen in my life to take such a stand for Capitalism. There is this book, Atlas Shrugged, and it’s like something out of that book. I want you to read it.

    Atlas Shrugged is the story of a man who decides to shut down the motor of the world, by a strike of the mind. The productive and virtuous like yourself found a hidden city like Atlantis. Gradually, all the productive go there. The story also teaches a philosophy: Objectivism.

    To quote Ayn Rand on the matter: “At a sales conference at Random House, preceding the publication of Atlas Shrugged, one of the book salesmen asked me whether I could present the essence of my philosophy while standing on one foot. I did as follows:

    Metaphysics: Objective Reality
    Epistemology: Reason
    Ethics: Self-interest
    Politics: Capitalism

    If you want this translated into simple language, it would read: 1. “Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed” or “Wishing won’t make it so.” 2. “You can’t eat your cake and have it, too.” 3. “Man is an end in himself.” 4. “Give me liberty or give me death.”

    If you held these concepts with total consistency, as the base of your convictions, you would have a full philosophical system to guide the course of your life. But to hold them with total consistency—to understand, to define, to prove and to apply them—requires volumes of thought. Which is why philosophy cannot be discussed while standing on one foot—nor while standing on two feet on both sides of every fence. This last is the predominant philosophical position today, particularly in the field of politics.

    My philosophy, Objectivism, holds that:

    Reality exists as an objective absolute—facts are facts, independent of man’s feelings, wishes, hopes or fears.

    Reason (the faculty which identifies and integrates the material provided by man’s senses) is man’s only means of perceiving reality, his only source of knowledge, his only guide to action, and his basic means of survival.

    Man—every man—is an end in himself, not the means to the ends of others. He must exist for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself. The pursuit of his own rational self-interest and of his own happiness is the highest moral purpose of his life.

    The ideal political-economic system is laissez-faire capitalism. It is a system where men deal with one another, not as victims and executioners, nor as masters and slaves, but as traders, by free, voluntary exchange to mutual benefit. It is a system where no man may obtain any values from others by resorting to physical force, and no man may initiate the use of physical force against others. The government acts only as a policeman that protects man’s rights; it uses physical force only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use, such as criminals or foreign invaders. In a system of full capitalism, there should be (but, historically, has not yet been) a complete separation of state and economics, in the same way and for the same reasons as the separation of state and church.”

    This philosophy will better enable you to defend yourself and defend capitalism in a way that is more consistent than defenses in the past. Selfishness is what needs to be defended, that is, rational selfishness not whim worship in the short term. To defend selfishness, you need to understand the nature of the Universe. Objectivist metaphysics are about the primacy of existence, “Wishing won’t make it so,” over the primacy of consciousness. The primacy of consciousness being the idea that reality can change on ones wishes supernaturally. Actually, it’s part of Communism, the idea that reality doesn’t matter, that if ten million people believe a lie it becomes true. The problem is pragmatism, intrincisim, and subjectivism.

    Interesting piece Ben. Made me want to put a face to the name, so dug around and found you making some comments here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5or5FAKgepA

    What I like best is that you ask people to actually read things, consider them, and to then have an opinion. I encourage you to read more widely yourself though, because you obviously have a keen interest in the wider world and your narrow set of influences and views are going to prevent you from being taken seriously, and that would be a shame. A lot of the issues you mention have been written about at length by better qualified people than either of us, so I won’t try to address them here (analysis of complex issues in a sentence or paragraph is too unsatisfying).

    To dismiss socialistic philosophy and to belittle it exposes the ignorance and underlying greed which is at the very core of our lovely world’s issues. To share when you have more than you need, to put a smile on someone’s face with your generosity, to create a better world where no one goes hungry and people have hope…. These are the ways of the wise and kind. To create a happier world, where exhibiting these benevolent aspirations should be the common goal of all humans…that is a better world for you and me.

    How can you so vigorously defend such a greedy, selfish, manipulative, power hungry individual? Clearly you’re on her payroll. This obsessive beast does not have an automatic right to power, purely because she is rolling in such obscene volumes of cash. She is the antithesis of what so many good hearted Australians stand for, and represents a tiny minority of very fortunate individuals born into wealth, and desperate for political domination. Her hunger for power is fuelled by her insatiable appetite for fortune. With so many people around the globe experiencing immense suffering, she truly embodies the very worst aspects of our species.

    Interesting piece of right wing propaganda. I can’t imagine Gina Rinehart would allow someone to squat her domain name in any way, and certainly not if that domain was also an attack on her ideologies. So you are either being compensated by her in allowing to keep this domain or possibly in some other way.

    Either way, is quite funny how vehemently you attack everyone who disagrees with you. u mad!?

    Lol. I think you’ll find that I didn’t bother to start discussing the faults in your claims… such as the ridiculous liking of her to historical figures such as Socrates. It’s ludicrous to the point that it makes your comparison laughable.

    You also failed to acknowledge Gina for her role in Total Recall, which seems a poor oversite in your research.

    You chose to compare Gina Rinehart to one of the seminal individuals of Humanity. The comparison is far too grande and fails for that very reason. It actually detracts away from your message because it is so absurd to compare Gina to Socrates. I just think the choice of individual is poor. Also wasn’t Socrates sentenced to death for corruption?

    You question why people do not like the image Gina cultivates for herself? where she enables this very websites existence when it has title “Gina Rinehart Is Our Rightful Democratic Leader”. Fortunately (for her, and everyone else for different reasons) she lives in a place where she can be democratically elected. The reason why she doesn’t run for a ministerial role within Australia is because although you believe that she could change Australia for the good of it’s people, it would require her to relinquish many of the things that are of her own independent interest such as the majority control of her business ventures. As such she will never run for prime minister in the immediate future for the benefit of others, but will instead just attempt to apply pressure to government departments (from the sides) to enable her own self interested agenda. This process has already started by the purchasing of shares in channel 10 and Fairfax as well as her continued interest in bringing American styled right wing media coverage to Australia…. maybe she can become the new Bill O’Riley?

    Either way, I feel the main problem with this “essay” Is that it requires the reader to believe that her intentions/actions benefit the majority more than it benefits herself… Which I think it is difficult for people to truly believe. You’re an economist so you must realise the importance of confidence not only in markets but in individuals too, people just don’t have confidence in Gina’s motives.

    Either way, while I will agree to disagree with your opinions you articulate your arguments very well.

    However, on a comedic front I strongly disagree with this sentence.

    “You are wrong to conflate something being funny with something being false.”

Your desire to be noticed by Gina Rinehart is palpable. Newsflash. She doesn’t know you, she doesn’t care about you. You are the worm that she steps on as she accumulates another million dollars. And as you squeal in her leavings she has already moved on to squish the next poor, deluded unfortunate.

    How dare you think that Rinehart could run this country!

    With so many idiots here, surely her best efforts would be swiftly sabotaged.

    No, why can’t she be joined instead by Clive, James and Twiggy too, at the Lemonade Stand of Australia.

    Too busy.

    Problem – they’re not qualified. They are toxic, with all that productivity of theirs, frankly, it’s embarrassing to that phalanx of hacks who’ve spent the best (worst) years of their lives grasping in the belly of the political party machine.

    Profit is beneath their dignity remember. Grasping for Rinehart’s kitty, on the other hand, is their sacred, solemn duty to the people.

    Once again, let me say, how could you stoop to letting politicians out of a job they created for their own ends – without any need for deference to the taxed.

    Let them have it. It’s all they’ve got. Least Rinehart as profits to fall back on. They can’t be like Rinehart, it’s beneath them remember, have some heart of your own. Shame on you Mr Marks.

Not only have you failed to consider the sociological impacts of the wide spread greed that pure Capitalism seems to inspire but the mess at which we have arrived due to it. If people like Gina Rinehat are able to roam this world without any checks or balances along the way we will soon have no earth or sociey on/in which to exist.

    Please brush up on your complete and apparent lack of historical knowledge with the causes of Failed States and how their colonial masters, spurred on by reforms in the same vein as those for which you are calling, plundered ancient native societies only to leave them to rot for the greater wealth of their homelands (see Spanish Empire and South America).

    Bottom line: yes Gina Rinehard is great if the only thing in this world that matters is wealth and living to excess.

    I personally think jealousy is a part of perceived dislike, for anyone that maybe successful, monetary wise, but I especially think there a resounding gender attack upon her, ‘doesn’t fit that good girl, obliging, run with foxes and fit in the gender pigeon-hole’ box. Also perhaps mining is seen by some as take only, not realising the importance to this country’s economy and people. Credit where credit is due, Ms Rinehart has built her business from virtually ground up, put in the hard yards. Incredible effort. Monumental business achievements.

      Lang Hancock took no risks. He found the resource, fought for 10 years to have laws changed, without telling anyone of his find, and then bought the land and developed its subsequent mine.

      He knew what he had found and was greedy enough to exploit it.

      It was underhanded.

      I do not care what side of politics you are from…

      This was a sleezy and opportunistic move.

      Profitable? Yes.

      Legal? Um… Yes. (eventually)

      Moral? No.

      Come on, even a child can see how dodgy it all was.

      I am not questioning his right to do it… am just questioning any ‘risks’ he was taking.

      He did not buy the land before-hand (he was legally not able), he knew the resource was worth millions (told no-one), fought for changes in law (eventually won), THEN bought the land… KNOWING its worth.

      Where is the risk? That he won’t be able to buy the land?…

      He ensured that he could.

    Benjamin Marks,

    I don’t like arguing with a fool because it pointless and I will only be brought down to your level. So here are a few question for you instead..

    Do you think that it is alright that while Gina Rinehart is worth $23 billion or something ridiculous like that there are children who’s families cant afford to feed them, there are indigenous communities with infant mortality rates equal to that of a developing country, there are families that are so anxious about their futures due to the deregulation of so many workplaces that they feel hopeless every single day. I haven’t even scrapped the tip of the iceberg of the inequality plaguing Australia and the world. So for you to sit behind your computer and rave on about how this woman, who is as ugly as she is evil, is only trying to protect what she has worked for I am going to assume that you have enough money to be comfortable and you are not of Indigenous background.

    Gina Rinehart has not worked a day in her life, there are people working 6 days a week just to feed their families, and to cloth them they need to get another job. And here begins the vicious cycle of disadvantage.

    Is it fair that Gina Rinehart is making a killing from public land? She is literally killing the PUBLIC land for her own PERSONAL wealth. Gina Rinehart is not worthy of the money that she has and she is not worthy of respect. She could be helping Australian a lot more than she is and still have enough money for several lifetimes. Every mining company should be doing more for the Australian people as its AUSTRALIA’S LAND! Would you support someone owning Australia’s drinking water? What about Australia’s air? Personally I think if anyone has the right to own the land we Australian’s call home its the Aboriginal people, but you Mr. White-Middle-Upper-Class-Gina-Rinehart-Fan wouldn’t like that very much would you? As I am sure you are aware of Gina and her fathers racist past.

    And btw capitalism doesn’t work you bloody idiot. Capitalism relies on consumption to keep going, so whats going to happen when there is nothing left to consume? But I guess you haven’t thought that far yet, as your too busy sucking on Gina’s tit hoping to get paid.

    l do agree that some people should be sterilize there as in people who murder kids and those that do nasty thing to kids, hang on they should be shot.
    but l find that l do agree with her on one point and that is the way we live, to have a job you need people to buy a product, to buy a product you need a job.

      Thank you Sister Lorraine – your obedience and prayers for Our Glorious and Rightful Democratic Leader will not go unrewarded. Indeed once she has remade our nation in her awe inspiring image your children will be amongst the last of those fed into her ferocious and ever hungry smelter-like, demon maw for your faith and dedication to her victory over the forces of Good.

      Just to offer a few corrections though – Mrs Rinehart didn’t get her wealth from her father as many wrongly suppose, no the truth is far better and more in line with the true Capitalist vision. Left to manage her fathers money in order to pass it along to her own children as per her dying father’s last wishes she instead realized that such a proposal, without benefit for herself, reeked of communism.

      After a quick prayer to Adam Smith she managed to divine the right course of action and plundered this wealth that would otherwise have been squandered in order to create not only Australian jobs but the whole concept of jobs and buying things. Previously you see people just wandered around getting money from the government which it acquired from oppressing capitalists while they waited around for Gina to invent the concept of jobs. We all know that like the force of gravity itself, the entire economy, jobs and indeed the entire notion of ‘buying things’ would collapse were it not for our Dark Lady’s weighty presence.

      Your concern for Gina’s family problems is touching – let it be known that she has plans to correct these problems, once she assumes her Rightful Place as Glorious Democratic Leader she will introduce legislation that allows not only for your righteous suggestion of punitive sterilization and capital punishment but also allows parents cursed with ungrateful children to devour them along with any inheritances they possess. This will be considered a form of biological corporate merger and also earn you a decent tax break.

    And finally bury alive all those who point out that this website is equal parts fascinating essay on nature of conceit and terrifying!

      I love the way that the mere fact that these essays have been written is in itself proof of their content. Its kind of like trashy reality TV. It’s so bad yet somehow I can’t help but read this guys rubbish.

    Come and spend 1 year with ME Gina. And leave your money behind when you do….
    “The Gina Rinehart Challenge” – Let’s see how GINA does. Unemployed. Without any money. And (optional) living on centrelink newstart…. You also have to be living in Tasmania. (High unemployment rate). And looking for work on a daily basis. (you can’t have a car.)(or phone credit)*and you gotta basically get around in op shop clothing. You are only allowed to accept a JOB opportunity. UNLESS you are treated like everyone one else. (Not famous). And you have to let your JOBsearch provider screw up at least 2 out of 5 of your opportunities for you. So that you end up torn between the choice of blaming yourself or blaming the jobsearch provider, the government, society. Or both. Preferably you’ll be living on your own. And you’ll be sick. Regularly. – After 12 months. You’ll be anemic. Hooked on tobacco. Snapping at people because of your empty stomach and nicotine addiction. You won’t be able to afford to pay for your rent. Power. and food. Properly. But you’ll still be expected to WORK. LOOK FOR WORK ( ALMOST better off collecting stamps (oh wait on a minute… we do (food stamps)… You’ll be expected to do everything you don’t want to do AND MORE, and you’ll be expected to PAY FOR IT, (in the end), INSTEAD of being expected to actually do that of which you DO want to do. You’ll also have YOURSELF, in the news headlines saying things like: (My interpretation) (I am on newstart… So I must suck then) : “Australia’s welfare system and its recipients are sending the country further into debt” —- GINA RINEHART — I have only this to say to you:
    !I.WISH.SOMEONE.WOULD.CALL.ME.FOR.AN.INTERVIEW.TODAY.! — !NO.ONE.IS.CALLING.ME! — !I.AM.LOOKING.FOR.WORK! — !I.HAVE.BEEN.LOOKING.FOR.SO.LONG.I.AM.NOW.APPLYING.FOR.A.PENSION.BECAUSE.I.AM.MENTALLY.ILL.! — !MENTALLY.ILL.FROM.NOT.WORKING.AND.FROM. STARVING. AND FROM. NOT. HAVING. ANY. OR. LITTLE. MONEY. GINA!
    !I.HAVE.NOW.TAKEN.UP.CIGARETTES.AND.ALCOHOL.TO.DRIVE.MYSELF.FURTHER.INTO.THE.DISABILITY.SUPPORT.PENSION.BECAUSE.I.AM.THAT.YES.THAT.SICK.TO.DEATH.OF.YOUR.SHIT! — !I.WILL.BE.HAVIN.A.NIP.NOT.JUST.FOR.YOU! — ALL I WANT FOR XMAS… IS A D!S!P! … ALL I WANTED FOR LAST XMAS… WAS A JOB… MUST’VE BEEN A BAD BOY. COZ. I DIDN’T GET NONE. — Come spend a day with Me. And I will show you. How stupidly wrong you are! And I will show you how far your head is up your…………. I hope your heart is in the right place. And I know it is not.

  75. […] Rinehart Is Our Least Controversial Celebrity”. And I’ve already established that “Gina Rinehart Is Our Rightful Democratic Leader” in my essay of the same name. So in this essay I’ll expand on the third idea — that Gina […]

    WOW! these arguments go on and on! I’ll bloody be reading all these responses for a bloody week!! But, will say immediately this; ALL governments HAVE to be “Communistic” at there core, that is interest in the common, community and the Country as a whole in competition with the rest of the world. The “Capital” comes from other countries/ and there peoples (coz they more weak and vulnerable then other country) or from own countries people by means of coercion (taxes) or direct labours “paid for” by the portion of the country (and others) that don’t provide that service! (services being Armies!! -you/ me least of all want to be the country “on the bottom taking it up the bottom!” Armies, police (to “control/ bully, coerce etc “the public” etc) Force people into vaccinate for scary “common” diseases that have plagued all the world through history, FORCE educate to the minimum standard the greater population so as to manipulate their beings into what ever of the day (“todays bullshit” is feel for two heroin “mules” because “capital punishment” is WRONG!! anywhere in the world – So “our Australian pollies and fucking deadbeats say; while POLICE here in this NO KILL land GUN DOWN to her death a 22yr old girl, no 10 fucking trial/ rehab NO FUCK ALL!!! Fucking deadbeats and their bleeding fucked up hearts!!!
    The point is this, (1) Progress will happen – WE ALL WANT THAT least we all live like fucking “NIGGERS!” poking in the shallows looking for yams!! Fuck that! PROTECT ME PLS “GINA!” (2) Enlightenment is an ongoing quest, as my mother “belt” into her children is this: “Your only quest/ mission in life is to GROW A BRAIN AND FUCKING LEARN TO USE IT!” otherwise you wont have the right to know how you’ll be “happy” to live, worse you’ll have NOTHING TO “DIE” FOR!
    Socialism is the rot of all countries, it’s rot is “telling” me what I should feel/ think of 9 fucking deadbeat fucking dickheads who in my opinion couldn’t cop that bullet soon enough! and then tries force down my throat that “GINA” is “this or that!” FUCK SOCIALISM!! Put a fucking condom on and stop the spread of “Cancer” (HPV 90% causal rate of ALL cancers if “we” are to believe the propaganda surrounding the FORCED FEMALE ONLY vaccination of a VIRUS!! maybe should be renamed “poxed box disease!”) Socialism is fucking devoid of PERSONAL responsibility!! it’s a fucking weight about the necks of the conscious/ fucking hit to the hip pocket of the “Cleverer” by the fucking ignorant and plain fuck-ups of the population… Socialism tries dictate to me that even though the opportunities of earlier generations (predominately male) was almost dream like! even though them fuck-ups chose to “spend” their time and money drinking and gambling, as some still do, they try to make me give a fuck they can’t afford the increased costs of home, food and whatever else!! Fucking think I give a fuck!!! NUP. In short socialism is the fucking rot of history and all who fool themselves into hoping it’s something grand.
    Political “Communism” is a MUST! Otherwise fucking strap a 6shooter to my hip and it’s again “All fair in love and war!” he/she who shoots fastest and straightest wins! and wins all!
    ALL outside that has always been a “FREE MARKET” / “BARTER SYSTEM” / “SLAVE TRADE” and fucking always will be.

    SO, is “Gina” fit to rule… sure, why fucking not! She can do it all! .. Me Thinking!

    And no doubt if it were me, ALL the fucking bed wetting bleeding hearts would fucking be sorry! They too would be fucking growing a brain and learning to use it, or “Suffering” quietly, or maybe coping a fucking bullet!

    Rayna.
    (and will thou painfully so, read the rest of the responses to this essay.)
    However, in short – YES! and fucking should do so!!! I’ll help, fucking I’ll work for (FREE!) well, maintain the lifestyle I’m accustomed to and it’s a date.
