    ^true, simple additions like a garden shed or installing/removing a pool, patio, etc needs a fee paid and approval from council. Where's private property rights there?

    ^ I'm all for governments bringing in new laws to stop our large farming lands from falling into foreign hands.

    Go try to buy a farm or land in China from Chinese government who owns the land and see what they say.

    That is exactly you sticking your nose in making decisions about what other people can do with their own property. It's you or some group making a decision which you think is in your own or some other group's best interest, the best interest of the owner is dismissed and his rights are sacrificed to benefit others, none of whom have either payed for the property nor been responsible for it.

    Private property rights are pre-eminent, if they're not then we have a system that is nothing better than authoritarianism.

    So what? As I said to silverpete, private property rights are a priori, they don't hinge on our observations or experience of foreign government's domestic policies.

    Because there is no contractual agreement they are absent through a lack of consent. :(

    It's also individual Australians having a right and say in what happens to Australia's future. Do not let our large farms/lands fall into foreign hands.

    Federal law can take away your supposed "right" to sell to foreign owners.
    We have foreign investment laws for a reason.

    Hypothetical:
    Say a dozen individuals own all of Australia's farming land. Should those dozen people have the ability to sell off all of Australia's farm land to foreign owners?

    A line has to be drawn somewhere.

    Are you attempting to justify the law by appealing to the status quo?*

    And the supporters of big government all applaud it. :/

    *Edit to add:
    You are. :(

    Unless you can prove any harm to yourself or your own property, or foresee with a great deal of accuracy some potential future harm to yourself or your property, that argument doesn't, or at least it shouldn't override the property rights of individuals.

    If it's their land then no one else owns it therefore they have the right to dispose of it as they see fit ie if they own it then it's not Australia's. For the benefit of this debate I'm ignoring that all land belongs to the Crown.

    It's sad to see people trying to regulate others peoples property.

    A person that owns a farm, house, car or dog, should be allowed to sell it whoever they like.

    It's just land, they can't take the land to China, it stays in Australia.
    It's ownership doesn't come with 1,000,000 visa for foreign nationals.
    It's a private company not a Chinese government enterprise.

    If for some reason they decided to sell all the beef to just China, a big whoop, plenty of other beefing businesses sell domestically and if that became a problem Australian government can legislate to have x% to be sold in Australia.

    It would have been better for foreign review board to hand down a requirement that the farm cannot do any live cattle sales and all beef has to be boxed and processed in Australia creating jobs.

    You know the thing about "the land" is that the people who owned it are long dead. U cant give it back. But if u MUST keep your garrison on the high ground. You would have gone to your local council, looked up the rightful owners of your suburb and gave them full ownership of your land. Have u done that? No? Why havnt u done that?.... the nerve of u, living on stolen property. :rolleyes: its funny how it only applies to some.

    their land is buggered. that's a reason they are buying here and why we aren't rushing to buy in china. it used to be that if you wanted to expand your territory you would bring out the sword, now all your have to do is bring out the money and others are willing to give it away.

    You don't sell Australian agricultural land to foreigners.

    You don't sell Australian soil to foreigners.

    You don't sell Australian residential land to foreigners.

    And you sure don't let those a holes who come here as so called refugees vote until the second generation!

    Australia for Australians !
