Here at the Australian Government
we firmly believe in free-market capitalism.
(Or as we like to call it, Class Warfare)
And the first rule of free-market capitalism is that
for the economy to work
everyone should stand on
their own two feet and pay their own way….
Or else fuck off and die.
You see, if we just handed out a billion dollars
for health or education
you people might get the idea you’re entitled to such things – for free!
But, of course… if some rich businessman
needs a billion dollars to build a mega coal mine
which will wreck what’s left of the Reef…
violate Indigenous Peoples’ rights…
Deprive farmers of precious ground water…
and fuel catastrophic climate change
whilst only creating a fraction of the jobs we’d get by investing that same amount in renewables…
then of course we’ll give him 1 billion
of our… I mean, *your* tax-payer dollars.
Because here at the Australian Government
we firmly believe in free-market capitalism…
for you that is!
