The Dystopian Western World. As the second decade of the 21st century comes to an end, democracy and free speech no longer exist in the Western World.
In all its respects, Western civilization no longer exists. In the United States, which poses as the model for democracy, a presidential election has just been stolen in full view of everyone. Blindingly-dangerous-the-big-lie-about-sydney-s-true-elites-20181011-p50910. Democracy under siege from the rising forces of plutocracy. Public disenchantment with the democratic process is on the rise.
Public polling shows Australians want political donations properly policed or banned, a federal ICAC, action on global warming and trust in government restored. Is the democratic system broken? Entrepreneur and journalist, Asher Moses, reports on influence peddlers, the Murdoch press, pre-fabbed opinion polls, political donations and the revolving doors between industry and government. AUSTRALIA HAS had six prime ministers since 2010 and at least two of them, Malcolm Turnbull and Kevin Rudd, claim to have been deposed by forces outside Parliament. Both pointed the finger at Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp which controls as much as three quarters of the newspaper circulation in the country (and therefore sets much of the local news agenda across TV, radio and online). This is done via lobbyists, special interest groups, opaque political donations and the revolving door of political staffers between government and industry.

The Lord Chief Justice and two senior colleagues were accused of putting Britain on course for a full-blown 'constitutional crisis' by saying Brexit could not be triggered without a Westminster vote. The judgment by Lord Thomas – a founding member of the European Law Institute, a club of lawyers and academics aiming to 'improve' EU law – throws into chaos Mrs May's timetable for invoking Article 50 in March next year.

ALEC is not a lobby; it is not a front group. It is much more powerful than that. Through the secretive meetings of the American Legislative Exchange Council, corporate lobbyists and state legislators vote as equals on ‘model bills’ to change our rights that often benefit the corporations’ bottom line at public expense. ALEC is a pay-to-play operation where corporations buy a seat and a vote on ‘task forces’ to advance their legislative wish lists and can get a tax break for donations, effectively passing these lobbying costs on to taxpayers. Along with legislators, corporations have membership in ALEC. Participating legislators, overwhelmingly conservative Republicans, then bring those proposals home and introduce them in statehouses across the land as their own brilliant ideas and important public policy innovations—without disclosing that corporations crafted and voted on the bills.

We have the right to vote, the right to work, and the right to freely express our opinions without threat of imprisonment or worse. Our political leaders often tout the United States as being a democracy of and for the people. We even spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year spreading this democratic influence to the rest of the world.
