We know that corporate money is behind the astroturf groups that are opposed to renewable energy, climate change, science, opposition and to the ALP as well as the demands by various business groups for the politics of austerity in response to the substantial deterioration in the outlook for the domestic economy.

Wealthy Australians hold that 47 percent of Australians are bludgers who earn nothing, pay nothing, and deserve nothing. The former have worked extremely hard and they have earned financial success. They are not going to have it taken from them by special interests associated with the Labor-Green left , who assume that the role of government is, and should be, to reduce stark income differences between the rich and poor.

Even to criticize what the super-wealthy get is to wage “class war” --so says the Liberal Party, which acts to oppose to any tax raised on the rich, to defend the interests of big money, and to oppose everything which stands in the way of increased profits.
