Is Australia becoming the world's nuclear waste dump by stealth?

  • The budget should be balanced,
  • the Treasury should be refilled,
  • public debt should be reduced,
  • the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and
  • the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest the state become bankrupt.
People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
Marcus Tullius Cicero (107--44 BC)
Government can have no more than two legitimate purposes:
  • the suppression of injustice against individuals within the community
  • the common defense against external invasion
William Godwin (1756--1836)
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
Alexander Tytler (1747--1813)
Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.
Ronald Reagan (1911--2004)
It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low, and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the tax rates.
John F. Kennedy (1917--1963)
Good government never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery.
Frank Herbert, "Children of Dune"
The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the nation
Tacitus (56--117 AD)
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: "If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
Ronald Reagan (1911--2004)
We have a system that increasingly taxes work and subsidizes nonwork.
Milton Friedman

The USA has now crossed the line separating a constitutional democracy from a fascist state.
September 11, 2001, destroyed more than lives, World Trade Center buildings, and Americans' sense of invulnerability. The event destroyed American liberty, the rule of law, and the US Constitution. -- P. C. Roberts
I fear Socrates would fare no better in America today than he did in Greece 2,400 years ago. -- Doug Casey

What's wrong with nuclear power?

Toxic Radiation Level in Canberra
National Capital of Australia
20 uRad = 0.2 uSv
We know from the BEIR VII report put out by the National Academy of Sciences back in 2005, that there is no such thing as a safe level of radiation exposure, that any level of radiation exposure increases the risk of cancer, however negligible that risk may be with any particular person on any particular day and any particular spot. When it's averaged out over a large population, that unfortunately means there will be, over time, increasing cancer rates.
