Would you like a utopia?

https://www.quora.com/Would-you-like-a-utopia/answer/Desmond-Last

This is my utopia my life as it is right now and the progress it makes. Single-handedly for 10 years I have fought Governments, Media and Corporations to make our World one which we can all enjoy.

I am still alive and daily my support increases.

The knowledge that certain ‘important’ persons will one day face me in Court on my ‘Day of Justice and Truth’ only serves to make my life meaningful and theirs hypocritical.

What’s the #1 thing people who see themselves as victims of their life circumstances struggle with daily?

Control. The ability to be ice-calm when your life is subject to circumstances illegal and legal which combine to make your life Hell.

The only survival tool is the belief you have in yourself and the knowledge that ‘No person, Corporation, News Media, Government or even Monarch has ever survived the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth’.

What is wrong with our society today?

This is a QA on Quora.

Absolutely nothing. It is obviously humane and compassionate to allow 20,000 children to die of malnutrition, conflict and disease everyday.

As I eat my MacDonald’s Burger and consider buying another I look around me and I note that some people have so many they can hardly walk.

I do not see my Government doing anything about the deaths of so many children. The Pope shakes the hands of all the World Leaders who are responsible for the World’s Economies. Is that a sign of approval?

Therefore, it must be OK for me to have plenty to eat and the Children in Africa to die.

I do not see thousands or even million protesting so the people of the Western World and all those who have plenty to eat must consider it to be OK.

I do not hear the Ayatollah of Iran saying it is not a good thing. The Chief Rabbi of Israel cannot be heard saying the World must not be so greedy and selfish.

I have tried to do something about the screaming child who in Africa has a swollen mouth and tongue chocking her. Her muscles wasted with bones so fragile they cannot take her weight without breaking. I thought it wrong that all she ever knew was pain before she will die of Aids.

But nobody took any notice of my writing with new ideas and systems to save her life and the lives of so many others- not one member of Government anywhere in the World or one member of the Faiths of God. Not one Journalist. Nobody, zero,

What do you think of Chinese human rights?

 

HRACT1

I would describe them as I would for the United Kingdom.

They have become the property of our Governments who have decided without the consent of the people that they can be removed at the will of the Government.

I would also state that China’s Human Rights are incrementally improving whilst those of the United Kingdom’s are regressing.

Never in the history of the United Kingdom has a Government been so ignorant of the will of the people and so selfish of its own political ambition.

China may not have the fine words so often spoken by Theresa May when she lectures the World about Human Rights but China at least does not pretend to be something it is not.

The photo is of the children of Yemen. Many of whom have died from bombs supplied by a United Kingdom Government who have ignored their right to life.

 

What are you going to do differently in 2018?

truth

This is my answer to the Question which is on Quora.

I am never ever going to stay in a Hotel Room in Australia without a camcorder recording my stay in the room live to a server via wifi or a direct internet connection. Why?

Because in 2012 I had just booked into a hotel in Albany Western Australia and was on the bed relaxing when 2 Western Australian Policemen burst into the room, handcuffed me and said I had been loud and ‘out of control’ or words to that effect– I was in the Hotel room on my own and being quiet. The radio and TV were not on.

When I say ‘burst in’ I mean just that. No knock on the door. It was full-on. If I had resisted it would have been the Taser. They never asked me anything about what I was doing or took a statement. They said I had to go for a Mental Assessment! They put the handcuffs on me whilst I was still on the bed.

They were very very aggressive both verbally and physically. They made no attempt to talk to me it was all very abusive and threatening.

They threw me handcuffed into the back of a Police Van which was very uncomfortable as it was not a smooth ride. I was rolling around handcuffed in the back of the Police van. I had to jam my feet up against the side of the van cell in order to stop myself being injured by the rough ride.

Even if I was making a noise which I was not, since when do Police burst in handcuff you and take you off to have your Mental Health assessed for being noisy?

When we arrived at the Albany Hospital nobody interviewed me or even spoke to me. I was put in a bare room with just a bed and one cupboard. I was injected with a drug twice – despite my objections. I never raised my voice or struggled as I knew that they would sedate me and who knows what else.

The injections made me very tired. I struggled to put on even a pair of socks .

After a couple of days I was put into a room with furniture. They continued to give me oral drugs. Why, I have no idea. I did not swallow them.

It took 3 days for the red welts and bruises from the handcuffs to go down and several days for the large lump on my arm from the injections to dissipate.

Initially the legal advice brochures were taken off the stand in the hospital making it impossible for me to get qualified legal representation.

The day after I was illegally detained and for the first 2 weeks I was allowed to go out on my own and wander around Albany – which makes a mockery and a lie of why I was detained. I even went horse riding.

I went to the local radio station but they expressed zero interest.

The local court Clerk of the Court said what had happened to me was very wrong and said she would demand I be released. Then the next day she said that there was nothing she could do and that I had to get a solicitor.

The local solicitor said she could not do anything. It was like being in a horror film. I had to pinch myself to be reminded that I had rights.

I went to Albany Police and made a complaint but was given the brush-off.

I was only interviewed once by two psychiatrists who seemed obsessed with my views on how to improve the World. They would not discuss why it was I was there in the first place.

Then suddenly I was told I could not go out and wander around so I was bored senseless walking up and down in a little yard they had. Nobody spoke to me.

Finally after 3~ weeks they said I could go. No explanation and no apology were given.

LOL. Apparently I was delusional because I wanted to write to improve the World. They found nothing wrong with my Mental Health.

Now what happened to me is to be the subject of a serious complaint. It was a very unpleasant experience and I still have no idea of why it occurred.

Both the West Australian Crime and Corruption Commission and the Western Australian Mental Health Commision have indicated that they will carry out an investigation into what happened.

What occurred does fall in line with other UK and Australian Government Agency efforts to question my writing and opinions. All of which have failed to find anything wrong with me and my writing.

I have written to all the major Australian Media about what happened to me in Albany but they do even reply back with an acknowledgment – which is strange as it is a very newsworthy story.

It also raises the question is the Mental Health Act being abused by those who seek to use it for their own purposes?

I am returning to Australia in February complete with tape recorder and camcorder and a live feed to Facebook!

 

Are we just a material?

truth

This is my answer to the Question which was on Quora.

The Human Condition is evolving into something less than Human. In fact many are already at the point where it can be said that they are just a material.

Many people, particularly in the Western World, have accepted a way of interaction that has isolated them from the interaction of the human condition with those who are less fortunate.

Many are willing to accept a conditioned mediocre society as long as they are kept safe by whoever imposes conditions on their behavior and hence they become material.

However, by doing so they lose their freedom of expression and their ability to fight for the freedom of others. Life becomes ‘self-satisfied’ and a constant search for the next ‘experience high’.

Our Governments and Establishments have failed to progress Society and develop its Humanity so instead they seek to contain and control us in order to ensure our behaviour is predictable and manageable – this way they hope to contain crime and terrorism.

They ignore the root cause of crime and terrorism which is their failure to ensure fairness in mankind’s progression and instead seek to micro-manage the whole of their Societies.

We are at the end of ‘freedom of expression’. Our Governments will have to become more decronian and more controlling of our rights if Society is to continue to remain manageable.

To do that they need the ‘material condition’. The other developer of the ‘material condition’ is AI and its derivatives. This is a real threat to our Philosophical Freedom and has already been embraced by our Governments. AI can never produce Philosophy as it incapable of free thought. It is Philosophy that develops humanity and produces the actions for mankind that progress the ‘human condition’ ie civilization.

To confront a Government with your own ideas is now almost as if you are going to war with them. They simply no longer listen. They fear ideas other than their own because they do want a new Philosophy which may displace their own ideologies.

The material condition is encouraged and fostered to ensure that Citizens are too afraid to seek other than their own material satisfaction.

The United Kingdom and Theresa May are the leading examples in the Western World of how the ‘material society’ is progressing. May is at the forefront of imposing new controls on the Internet that will only seek to increase the divide between the State and its People.

The acceptance of the failure of our Governments to manage our Economies fairly is at the root cause of the emergence of the ‘material condition’.

Terrorism and Crime thrive on Economic Mismanagement which is a symptom of modern Governments inability to accept new ideas – the vicious circle of the Ivory Tower.

Hence the ‘Protection of the Material’ and its embryonic human condition ‘the need to be selfish’ so that there is no need to concern yourself with the actions of your Governments on Human Rights.

In politics of Australia, why do people tend to bring up homeless people in response to asylum seekers?

cropped-cropped-truth2.jpg

Answered on Quora

For those outside of Australia it would appear to be almost deliberate that there are any homeless people and to some extent that is almost true.

Successive Governments have failed to produce policies which last longer than their term of Government and State Politics work against each other.

Australia’s refugee policy has become inhumane, ridiculous and very expensive. It has divided Australia as it offers no solutions only controversy.

Like most citizens of any country people want their own looked after first hence the homeless and asylum seekers debate.

These are my suggestions;

There are many buildings in Australia that lie empty and it would not be difficult to draft legislation that ensures every developer builds x number of social housing homes per x of commercial development.

The economies of scale of even a moderate commercial development of 10 homes would make building a social home less expensive than as a stand-alone construction.

Australia also needs an industrial strategy that provides value-added employment. It has bled it’s resources dry. Australia has a powerhouse in the sun and that too has the potential to provide thousands of jobs should Australia decide to become a net exporter of energy.

There are no doubt those who say Australia’s first priority should be to its citizens – to which I agree. But the relatively small amount of asylum seekers when processed can be quite easily absorbed with a minimum term of directed location by a country which still seeks legal immigrants.

What Australia needs is a Bi-Partisan refugee policy so asylum seekers are not subjected to Political football .

Unfortunately selfish Party Politics would appear to produce self-obsessed Party Policies which only produce the destructive forces of economic disunity and mediocre politicians.
