With more of the same from the big parties we will simply see more of the same problems and worse. Big government departments such as the Education Departments have grown so political and powerful that they arrogantly seek to indoctrinate our children to believe ideological ideas which are incredibly harmful. They are unaccountable to the people and need to be restrained. That will not happen if you vote for the ALP, Greens, or even Liberals.
Another example of massive government bloat and inefficiency is the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). I have personally known, and many participants in the financial investment sector know full well, that this well funded government body often ignores the serious cases and pursues the minor cases.
It has recently come to light that during the period they were allocating 25 agents and millions of dollars to heavy-handedly pursuing a small case in the early 2000s, they were ignoring serious and culturally imbedded corporate wrongdoing at the Commonwealth Bank which was then allowed to continue for more than a decade unhindered, causing the loss of millions of dollars of small investors hard-earned savings. ASIC had a duty to those individual Australians but they chose to pursue something else for personal reasons.
While ASIC were focusing the full weight of their resources on their over the top pursuit of a small case, they were ignoring insider's revelations and calls for help at the Commonwealth Bank. Because of their ineptitude and abuse of state resources for personal reasons there is now, 15 years later, a widespread and cross-party call for a Senate inquiry into ASIC, in part to discover why they misallocated funds and resources into their heavy-handed pursuit of an obviously unintentional small time mistake by an individual rather than investigating the obviously widespread, systematic and culturally embedded corporate misconduct at CBA.
