Privatisation of the People’s Assets

Written by Mathew Naismith

Don’t be fooled by any government, no political party coming into office owns any of the utilities, it’s the people of the said country or province that owns these utilities and all public lands. Yes, we vote these political parties in to govern these utilities and public lands for us, but, these utilities are never owned by these parties that the people vote in to govern (manage).

Sadly enough, in a lot of countries, public assets have been under the domain (control) of unionists, this has lead to inefficiency and corruption in a lot of cases, I should state here, not all public assets under unionist control have been mismanaged. Now for  the privatisation of these publically owned assets. We have less corruption, in a sense, and more efficiency, however, the cost of using these assets (utilities) goes up significantly, Australia is a prime example of this.

Now the funny thing is, the government says that inflation has not gone up significantly since privatising the people’s assets in Australia, even though we are paying significantly more for using these now privatised assets (utilities), the only time inflation is said to have increased is when workers wages are increased. This is funny, corporate wages and the other benefits and payouts that these higher rollers receive, have gone through the roof in recent times, why doesn’t this massive rise  influence inflation when such massive rises means higher living expenses?

Privatising the people’s assets means higher living expenses. At the same time that these assets are sold off to the private sector, inflation is then primarily based on the common workers wages, not the wages, benefits and payouts of these high rollers.  This might not be the actual case that inflation is worked out primarily on workers wages, but it certainly seems that way.

Private ownership means a said company needs to look after their investors within the said company, this means the investors most often come first. Isn’t this like what I commented on in my last post, that political parties guidelines come over and above the people’s guidelines? Privatisation obviously means less democracy and more dictatorship by the minority, unionism on the other hand is supposed to be more about democracy but that isn’t the case either in a lot of circumstances. Inefficiency always leads to the common working people paying the price for such inefficiency, what’s so democratic about the people always having to pay for unionist inefficiency and corruption or privatisation inefficiency and corruption.

Yes, I did state that privatisation is of inefficiency, this is because when a company takes over the people’s assets, the cost of paying out of using such assets rises significantly, to me this massive rise shows a high degree of inefficiency.  

Greece in my mind needs to stay right away from privatising the people’s assets, however, they also need to do something about how the public assets are being mismanaged if they don’t go along with selling off their assets to the private sector. There is a middle ground here and they need to find it as we all do.                 

Reinventing True Democracy

Written by Mathew Naismith

The descendants of the people who first initiated true democracy are in crises, the Greek people are made accountable for a minority who obviously mismanaged Greece’s financial affairs, does this sound like true democracy, especially when the minority in question are not made accountable to the degree of neglect and mismanagement that’s obviously apparent in Greece at present?

Before we go on, we need to first know what is the definition of true democracy?

Extract: Democracy is a dynamic participatory means of governance.  Democracy is a dynamic set of governing principles and laws for establishing and maintaining social, political, and economic standards within a community, society and country.  Democracy is formed and maintained by well-informed, involved and organized citizens, exercising their inalienable rights directly, and through term-limited elected representatives.  In a true Democracy common people are considered the primary source of political voice and power.  The effectiveness of a true Democracy is measured by the degree of citizen’s involvement, knowledge of true current events and news.  Only the informed and involved citizens could be the guardians of their democracy.

The question now is, do political parties answer to the people or the party itself?  True democracy isn’t about following party guidelines and the criteria set down by multinationals, true democracy is about the guidelines of the people first and foremost. True democracy is about the guidelines of the majority, not the minority, political parties are not about the common peoples guidelines, the majority, but about the minority. This minority are of course going to serve themselves above the common people, they are obviously not going to follow guidelines set down by the common people even though the minority are voted in by the majority.  It’s obvious they are going to follow party and multinational guidelines, this is where the big money is after all. Money certainly over rules common sense, Iceland and Greece are good examples of this.       

Iceland has tried to implement reforms to the extent of changing their constitution and making the minority, who mismanaged Iceland’s finances, accountable. Going by the following articles, these reforms have not totally been successful, however, at least there is a hint of reincorporating true democracy back into the Icelandic system.

The newly written constitution hasn’t as yet been implemented by the sounds of it. The newly written constitution would present Iceland going through a financial crises again like they did, you would have to wonder why the new constitution hasn’t been implemented? One reason might have something to do with political parties and their own party guidelines, not the people’s guidelines!!

True democracy is about electing a spokes person who will speak on the voters behalf, in other words follow the majorities guidelines, not a party member who has to follow the parties guidelines first and foremost on behalf of the minority.

Do as the Icelandic’s did, prosecute the multinationals, bankers and politicians who are the one’s actually at fault here. This crises should not have been encumbered upon the people of Greece but the actual perpetrators of these crimes upon the people.

It’s a crime not to pay our tax’s thus putting the country into debt, why isn’t this a crime when multinationals, bankers and politicians put the country into that much debt to the extent  that these countries will never get themselves out of. Greece obviously needs to revolt against the current system, a system developed by the multinational, bankers and politicians to serve themselves, not the Greek people obviously.  

This of course goes with any country that is being manipulated and controlled by a minority people who are self serving, the country and it’s people need to come first and foremost for a country isn’t a country without it’s people, actually, the multinationals, bankers and politicians are nothing without the people of such countries.
