Highly respected Australian identity Dick Smith has warned of it – the website has been saying the very same thing that the only way to out of things out is civil war. This website is aware of the fact there are groups out there that are arming themselves and others who are simply stockpiling supplies. This website has gone out of its way not to know who these people are and it is staying that way.
This website is fully aware that the war will have the backing of most Police and Military. The first casualties will be our own kind who should know better. This I know for fact. Many will plead innocence and duress however such things will fall on deaf ears as they like many of us have suffered by the actions of these cowards.
OUTSPOKEN entrepreneur Dick Smith has warned of a violent revolution if Australia’s immigration intake is not dramatically scaled back.
Thirty years after the classic “Grim Reaper” AIDS ad first aired on TV, the businessman is launching his own version — featuring the original voice actor — warning of “famine, disaster, war and collapse”, urging politicians to end the “Ponzi scheme” before it’s too late.
“Our growth-addicted economic system will see our children living in a world of 11 billion people, consuming and polluting more than our finite planet can withstand,” the ad says. “It’s a path to either more and more inequality, or famine, disaster, war and collapse. Are we that stupid?”
Since the early 2000s, Australia’s annual net migration intake has tripled from its long-term average to 210,000 people. Mr Smith wants immigration to return to a more sustainable 70,000 a year, a call echoed by a growing number of commentators.
“It’s still very generous, but it means we would stabilise the population under 30 million people,” Mr Smith told news.com.au. “I have absolutely no doubt we’re going down the same track as America, which has over 30 million people on a minimum wage of $7.10 per hour, less than half ours. The prime reason is too many people trying to share the finite.”
Australia’s population has surged 21.5 per cent since 2003, compared with the OECD average of 8.5 per cent, but Australia’s GDP per capita change has just barely outpaced the OECD — 16 per cent versus 15 per cent.
Mr Smith said it would only get “worse and worse”.
“Our growth rate will take us to 101 million people by the end of this century when our grandkids will be alive,” he said. “That’s possible but with a very large number of poor people, and they will revolt, they’ll bring out the pitchforks and revolt.
“I was in Siberia, I travelled to where the Tsar’s children were gunned down. We’re going to repeat the stupidity of previous generations.”
He slammed the common argument that high immigration was needed to replace an ageing population. “It’s ridiculous, it’s a Ponzi scheme,” he said.
“If you bring in more people now, they get older and the problem is worse. You can’t solve an ageing problem by bringing more immigration, it puts it off but gives the impression the government is doing well. The working people are worse off.”
Mr Smith is spending $1 million of his own money to air the commercial, which will launch at a media conference at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney on Tuesday.
He said he was inspired by a recent Oxfam report which found the wealthiest 1 per cent of Australians own more than the bottom 70 per cent — or 17 million people — and by comments from former Reserve Bank governor Bernie Fraser that the wealth gap was approaching a “danger point”.
“We need to have a population policy, and eight out of 10 Australians agree with me,” he said. “Everyone stops me in the street and says, ‘Dick, you’re so right.’ Every Australian family has a strict population policy, they don’t have 20 children, they have the number they can give a good life to.
“But our politicians are letting us down by spruiking endless growth, which is really endless greed, more people have less.”
Mr Smith said both sides of politics were to blame, with the Labor Party “frightened of their ethnic vote”, and the “wealthy lobbyists” pushing for ever-increasing immigration.
“It’s more customers to buy our goods, it keeps wages down, it’s the greedy 1 per cent who will get more and more wealthy as they completely destroy our country,” he said.
To coincide with the TV ad, Mr Smith has launched a “Fair Go Manifesto”, which calls for higher taxes on wealthy individuals and corporations — 45 per cent for companies compared with 30 per cent, and 65 per cent for individuals compared with 49 per cent.
The manifesto also calls for inheritance taxes for the wealthiest 1 per cent, and the removal of capital gains tax concessions and negative gearing for property investors to improve housing affordability.
