But in some disturbing news out of OZ they are now banning bikie's yes, that's right to hell with innocent till proven guilty, new laws passed in Queensland mean that you can be arrested. If you ride in a group, if you wear the same colours. I mean does that mean, all sporting teams who were the same colours can now be arrested and held in prison!
OZ is slowly going to hell, thanks to do-gooder bitches in parliament. Seriously if the police actually did their fucking job and arrest the criminals not everyone else who just happens to belong to that bikie group, this is some seriously fucked up shit, so who's next? Let's arrest all the italians because they might be Mafia, that's how fuckinh absurd this is
you can read more about it here;
I actually wrote a chapter on this in my book Collateral Damage you can read the chapter here;
I touched on a topic earlier on in the book, that “the one thing that all people will succumb to is fear and intimidation”, yes fear and intimidation work. They help keep people like sheep, scared, on edge, uneasy and much easier to govern”.
Now more than ever we have a situation in which governments around the world are slowly eroding the freedoms of the people. Freedoms that were hard fought and won by us, by everyday people laying down their lives so we could all enjoy the freedoms that we have taken for granted for so long.
The war on terror gave governments around the world the excuse to enact laws that are slowly taking away our freedoms. By handing police more powers than ever before. You can now be arrested on suspicion, that’s right suspicion, you don’t even have to commit a crime these days, so much for innocent till proven guilty (the very foundation of our legal system).
Then there are the laws designed for our own protection, the ones that prohibit free speech, and the laws that take away free choice. It almost seems as if governments see us the people as idiots. The old system mind you worked just fine, you of course can’t legislate against idiots, but this doesn't seem to stop the government.
The proliferation of CCTV cameras all over the place starts to look more and more like big brother is watching and yes they are, the police really are the foot soldiers of the governments, their job is no longer to serve the community but it is to collect revenue and act as the military arm of the government hell-bent on keeping us subdued and fearful.
Free choice is now under attack, for example you only have to look at your own government to realise that in the last twenty years more laws have been passed then at any other time in the history of government.
Then there is the constant bombardment of Public Service Announcements (read propaganda?). It seems that almost every day the government is invading the air waves and television with its Public Service Announcements. I have compiled a list of the most recent government announcements in Australia alone;

I’ll tell you what, I’d rather take my chances and live free, governments don’t worry about me I’ll be fine but please let me just live my life and stop thinking that I am someone in need of your protection! I am quite capable of making my own decisions and with that will cop the consequences of any stupid decisions I make but rest assured they will be my decisions and my choice and my freedom to make them.
It is this intrusion into every aspect of our lives that scares me. Governments have used the terrorist fear to enact changes that they would like us to believe is for our own protection, like they are somehow looking after us, but can we really trust the government? A wise man once said that it is not the people that should fear the government but the government that should fear the people.
We should be fearful, as we are handing over hard won freedom and choice and with that ultimately power to the government. This slow erosion of our freedom with every new law, hands the government greater and greater power that, rest assured they will not give up very easily!
Sorry it's alot to take in on a Monday, but I am starting think I will need to find a new country to live in! So if you have any suggestions, let me know.
