It is said that if you want to know who is the oppressor find that of which can not be spoken. Who receives the Carbon tax proceeds? Find them and you will know!

Praised by Barack Obama as a model for the world, Australia’s highly unpopular carbon tax, set to take effect from July 1st, is set to be policed by laws which forbid business owners from criticizing it for causing price rises – with thought criminals who do so under threat of being hit with huge fines of over $1 million dollars.

  1. Wow… Amazing, I consider myself an environmentalist but this is going way too far. A ridiculous tax is bad enough, but to make it illegal to critize it… Amazing. Makes me wonder if the people in power are simply trying to make the peasants react, seeing how far they can push us before we break.

    I practice a form of energetic medicine that does successfully clear peoples allergies called NAET. In Australia, despite the hundreds of testimonies fm satisfied patients practitioners were banned from practising it because they were claims that they could treat allergies that were fraudulent – all because the court decided it was “impossible”.

    Really democratic, eh!
