    Here, what about the gold loving Jews and their global conspiracy?

    See what I mean? I know you dont.
    I see what you mean, but I also see that you misapply it.

    Surprise was not the objective.

    An Historic Moment

    We are living through a wonderful moment in history. For in 1833 institutional slavery was abolished for the first time by the House of Commons; New Zealand and Australia emancipated women for the first time at the turn of the 20th century; and in November, 2012 Australia is one of the first nations to have a national Royal Commission into the institutional abuse of children.

    Just yesterday the Australian Cabinet recommended a National Royal Commission to enquire into child abuse in all Australian institutions. And yesterday our Prime Minister (look to your left) took the Recommendation to our Governor General for Assent.

    A National Royal Commission is a Judicial Body with Coercive Powers. It is fully funded and will run for two years or more.

    Liberal democracy knows that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely, so liberal democracy seeks to limit power.

    So liberal democracy limited power over slaves for the first time in 1833; and liberal democracy limited power over women at the turn of the 20th century; and as I write, liberal democracy is limiting power over children.

    Your eventual disillusionment with liberal democracy would be sweet, that is if it wherent so apparent that liberal democracy is a flag of convenience for hating on something else.
