The Demise of the Coalition in Australia

For thousands of years the average person was owned. By Kings and by Nobles and by the Church of the Day.

We read of wars and invasions and the glory of war. Yet many average people were killed in those wars which only served to change the survivors’ owner.

The Christian Church created a small problem in that it preached that all people were God’s children and over the centuries, this preached equality became a problem for the owners of people. Slavery became a bad thing and so wages had to be paid and job mobility allowed so that there was an appearance of freedom for the masses.

This was accelerated as the Industrial Revolution gathered pace. New skills were needed so education became something the State sponsored. Of course under the facade, it was simply so the ‘Bosses’, as they had now become, could gain access to the skills the newly educated brought to their enterprises.

Yet the thinking remained much the same. Subsistence wages for the workers.

Eventually, throughout the industrialising world, workers became organised and despite a number of bloody encounters between the workers and the paid enforcers of the will of the Bosses, a Trades Union Movement gathered momentum and eventually became a political force.

In the twentieth century politics became a fight between organised ownership and organised labour.

Now, in the twenty-first century we are living through another major change in the political balance.

Because of the success of both the Bosses and the Workers, the natural balance of the world has changed and we are now faced with changes in the climate which are both man-made and potentially cataclysmic.

The Workers and the Owners are suddenly on the same side because that is the world all our leaders, both left and right, know. There is an inbuilt conservatism among the leaders of both. And those leaders, in the main, are older people. They can no longer see past the next election cycle for this is where their power lies. The old Tory Club is dying off; literally!

Yet a majority of electors are now in the younger generations. The generations which will live through the consequences of previous generations’ thoughtless drive for individual wealth.

Here in Australia, there is a major divide between the climate change denying Right and the reluctant to change Left. The Right-wing voters in the younger cohort are changing faster than their equivalent cohort on the Left. Sometime soon, possibly within a decade, we will see the right wing of politics, Liberal, Nationals And the Right of the ALP, completely collapse as its adherents die off. What we will be left with is an interesting mix.

The Bosses will move their support to the Left and so strengthen them for a while. At the same time, many of the younger people will move to environmentally friendly political groupings. Probably the Greens unless a new, similar group appears. The important background events will be the continued rise of anarchic Social Media and the demise of the Big Business-owned Mainstream Media and the continued climate catastrophe.

The Political fight in Australia and probably throughout the Western World, will become a fight between Organised Industry and Organised Climate Changers.

Industry will organise to, as they see it, protect Industry and the Economy and keep the world of humanity running as it always has..

The Climate Changers will be fighting to reverse the heat death of humanity.
