    Default Our Prime Minister is chosen by Rupert Murdoch and other Media Moguls

    The fact @Stiffy and his ilk are more concerned with commercial media discussing topics that interests their audience than publicly funded socialist propaganda is extremely perplexing

    What's wrong with socialism?

    so·cial·ism
    ˈsōSHəˌlizəm
    noun
    a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

    ======

    cap·i·tal·ism
    ˈkapədlˌizəm
    noun
    an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.

    Neither work due to greed and corruption but in essence socialism at least gives everyone a share of the profits.

    Mind you, capitalism/democracy have changed things a lot.

    Why should anyone have a share in something they didn't contribute to
    Yes socialism is a nice ideology, until you try and live it.

    Agreed. Just like capitalism.

    I fixed it.

    You do realise that you live in a society that is, in many ways, socialist. Just like Sweden. And England/UK. And Canada.

    In contrast, under a capitalist system:

    https://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/23/here...alth-care.html

    According to the most recent data available from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), "the average American spent $9,596 on healthcare" in 2012, which was "up significantly from $7,700 in 2007."
    To make that simple for you, that's $800 per month. More if you have kids.


    It was also more than twice the per capita average of other developed nations, but still, in 2015, experts predicted continued sharp increases: "Health care spending per person is expected to surpass $10,000 in 2016 and then march steadily higher to $14,944 in 2023."


    Indeed, average annual costs per person hit $10,345 in 2016. In 1960, the average cost per person was only $146 — and, adjusting for inflation, that means costs are nine times higher now than they were then.
    Of course, other factors come into play such as that being in US$, so do the conversion to get AUD$. (About $1150 or more, once your capitalist bank takes a cut in the conversion.), lower wages in the US and a higher cost of living. Then there is the cost of buying medications. Despite having medical insurance, expect to pay US$65 for a basic blood pressure med available for $7 in Canada.

    Don't worry. The 1% who make all the real money will keep up the PR/propaganda machine to convince you that things are great, a la Animal Farm.

    Yes, our society is unfortunately becoming more socialist where each successive generation is adopting an attitude of personal entitlement and to them I say go live in a real socialist/communist/fascist country for a couple years.
    I was born in a socialist/communist country and to that I say no thanks and fuck off.
