"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

We all know that our intelligence organizations have not been doing too well. If you find that judgement a bit sweeping then, recall the intelligence gathered for the Iraqi war, catching Islamic terrorists trying to set an Islamic state in Australia and uncovering all the terrorist sleeper cells across the nation.

Clearly the intelligence organizations need to become more efficient. So lets privatise them.

Not convinced? Here is the knockdown argument. Private enterprise can do a better job that governments. Nothing more need be said.

The money raised from selling of the intelligence organizations could be used to save the River Murray.
