Fascism - Was Hitler Right?   Home

We must not forget that the Germans supported the Nazi Government as they made laws and set up institutions that eroded personal liberties and freedoms, including for the right to be alive for Gypsies, Jews and Negroes. The Nazi's ruthlessly squashed small business - their "black market". The Stanford Prison Experiment proves it is normal for groups given authority to take extreme positions and abuse people if allowed to. It seems to be normal for democracies to evolve to extreme positions where individual rights and freedoms are eroded. The Rule of law is replaced with Tribunals - star chambers where defendants do not get due process and procedural fairness.
 
Definition: In politics there are two axis of extremes: 
High
Private Initiative

High Control (Big controlling government)

High 
Government Initiative
Facism Communism
Plundering Opportunism Monopolistic Capitalism

Low Control (Small government)


Facism is where there is high government control over big business. The country is run by government for and by big business interests. Small business activity becomes a black market and is squashed.

Communism is where the government runs and controls the economy. Small business activity becomes a black market and is squashed.

Plundering Opportunism occurs where there is no control and the resources are there for the taking. Ocean fishing has been the last area and is slowly coming under control. In the early days of Australia and America there were range wars over property along with cattle stealing. 

Monopolistic Capitalism occurs where big business controls and runs government. In Australia we have Woolworths and Coles with 80% of the grocery market and fuel market using tactics to put their competition out of business. Australians pay twice the price for meat and other groceries than the Americans because of supermarket markups. The Rudd Labor Government gave a wealthy multinational, Toyota,  $70 million as a gift to buy its support and favours.

Free enterprise occurs somewhere in the middle where Government uses its control to implement a free fair and competitive market place. If we had a free enterprise system Woolworths and Coles would be forced to divide up into many smaller businesses. Individual innovation and initiative is encouraged and Universities would be fostering the development of small businesses by those who do research and development in the Universities. Instead Universities have little organisations like Uniquest charged with selling technologies to big multinationals.

So what is Australia? Somewhere between Fascism / Capitalism and Free Enterprise and moving more extreme.
We have high government control over individuals and what they can do in an enterprise fashion, how they employ people and licences to trade. 
We have large corporations with monopolistic like places in the Market Place and now a government that is very favourable towards multinationals.
We have large unions with their government in control..
 
The biggest threat to freedom and Australia becoming fascist is the simple sentence "The Government should do something about". Examples are

The government should

  • make laws so mothers do not breast feed their children after 1 year of age because then it becomes sexual abuse (legislation being considered).
  • pass legislation so barking and protective dogs can be put down (The Animal Care and Protection Act does this).
  • de-sex all pets so there are not so many unwanted animals having to be put down (Animal Care and protection).
  • lockup up people to stop them from harming others or themselves (The Mental Health Act does this, Psychiatrists are now the SS equivalent of Nazi Germany and use imprisonment and torture (They call it hospitalisation and treatment)).
  • make laws to stop people from getting food poisoning (massive health Department licensing and controlling food along with certification process etc.). They can put anyone out of business at their whim.
  • Stop people from having hobby farms (there is a limit on how many chickens and eggs cannot be sold without a licence which cannot be obtained, The RSPCA can shoot farmers cattle and do at times).
Every time someone or some group wishes upon us more legislation to control some aspect of our lives they move us closer to Fascism. 

The consequences of this over controlling do gooder government can be devastating:
  • The legislation banning DDT has resulted in the death of over half a billion people from malaria. The simple spraying of DDT on home walls would have repelled the mosquito and saved the lives of over 500 million people in the last 25 years. DDT could have been banned from farming practices to achieve the same result as the total ban did. Was it really worth it?
  • The Mental Health Act and human nature where groups become extreme have now turned Psychiatrists into the equivalent of the nazi SS where they imprison and torture the victims of disputes on the malicious hearsay statements of their enemies.
  • The Animal Care and Protection Act is devastating people who love their pets. They are having them taken away and being put down by the RSPCA or getting a bill for $700.00 for their desexing. Pet Shops will no longer be able to sell pets because the $700.00 price of desexing pets will price pets out of the market. Children will no longer grow up with pets. Society will be less nurturing and caring as a result.
  • Hundreds of Millions of people are going to die from starvation in the next 20 years because of:  
    • farming resources being diverted to biofuels reducing supply - a result of government policy; 
    • Governments getting worried and restricting exports of foods; 
    • speculation in commodity markets raising the price foods;  
    • Increased production of meat increases the demand for grain to produce the meat thus reducing the efficiency of food production; 
    • Increased cost of production due to higher oil prices; 
    • Diseases such as wheat rust Ug99 because of lack of research into plant breeding; 
    • the growing world population increases demand for food;
    • Climate variability such as droughts;
    • Increased cost of distribution of foods due to higher oil prices.
