Confrontations…the country needs more baddies.

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

Ayn Rand,Atlas Shrugged”,1957

Ceremonies such as the Australia Awards, an aftermath of yesterday’s amusement was a minor fracas involving the PM, are essentially elitist shows rewarding the most intensely self-interest groups like sports, the arts and politicians, if not with the presentation of a parchment then by making a jolly good day of it.

More enlightened Australians look on bemused and understand and sympathise with a people, like other put-down groups including the aged, hopeless poker-machine addicts, substance abusers and the homeless who meet confrontational police in every turn their life makes. The purpose of government is to protect the individual rights of its citizens. Since rights can be assaulted both within a country or outside of it, the government must deal with either threat. This requires an army for defence of the country, and a police system to protect the individual citizens from other individuals within the country
