You've been around long enough to see the way things are going. What about your kids? And grandkids? Do you want to see things get worse for them?/ It's not like in generations past, we have the internet now. The most amazing tool for communication ever. Would you have ever even heard of most of these ideas if not for the internet? Or come across as many people? I know I wouldn't have. It's either do this or watch Australia descend into a fascist, big brother, surveillance security state. The privatisation you speak of is mostly the state selling it's company that has special state privileges of some kind to private operators. Not opening things up to competition. Has nothing to do with competition. Basically, it's the government perverting the language so it suits them again. The same way they say they want to make houses affordable, but all their actions are intended to drive prices up. The same way they call the banking cartel, the free market. It's all tricks of language. Very Orwellian.
