Cash being demonised for greater control of the serfs in the colony called Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

Governments and corporations are now demonising cash, under whatever pretext the corporations think of this month, in order to gain full access to the tax slaves movements, which then can be used to control their lives.

Apparently now, if you save money for a 'rainy day' (plenty of those in Melbourne), then you're branded with a negative connotation that being of a hoarder.

Many humans from the herd population love the (digital) slavery they're in, i.e. being a 'product' that gives data way to corporations for very little reward, like $2 for every 50 litres of fuel purchased, for surrendering their docket, which contains the purchaser's history within that docket.

The forcing of people to go cashless is not for the benefit to those people, but rather government and corporations, although there are many arguments put forward, where convenience is pushed as the main selling point.

Forget about the farcical excuse of security.

Going cashless gives rise to more credit card fraud as mentioned in mainstream media news articles;

You are demonised for hoarding cash, where you are told that it's fine being in the bank, but 'fine' for who?

A youth activist on the climate crisis: politicians wont save us "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

 https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/dec/14/climate-change-young-people-cop24-conferenceAt the COP24 conference, leaders lack the urgency felt by communities on the frontlines of a global threat

As wildfires burn, as temperatures rise, as the last remaining old-growth forests in Poland are logged, world leaders are in Katowiceto negotiate the implementation of the Paris climate agreement. To outsiders, UN climate talks may seem like a positive step. Unfortunately, this is COP24.

For 24 years, world leaders have annually talked at each other instead of to one another in hopes of reaching an agreement on how to mitigate the climate crisis. In all that time, they have barely scratched the surface of an issue that the worlds top climate scientists say we now have 12 years to stop and that is an optimistic estimate.

467 ways to die on a warming planet Damn the Matrix

A new study published in Nature has found evidence for 467 ways in which climate hazards due to global warming are making life on the planet harder for humans. It confirms that we are witnessing a shift in the functioning of the Earth system as a whole, a shift to a new state that is unsympathetic to the continued flourishing of human life.

A changing climate is only one feature of a warming globe. Human activity has bounced the Earth into a state that has no equivalent in its 4.5 billion year history.

Clive Hamilton

The Earths new trajectory as it spins into the future has led scientists to tell us we have entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. We have crossed a threshold and the geological clock cannot be turned back. The disruption we have caused is increasingly unpredictable and uncontrollable, and it has no endpoint.

There are, therefore, two questions humankind must face. What must we do to prevent serial disasters becoming existential catastrophe? And how can we make our social and economic systems flexible enough to cope with the new dispensation?

There are several reasons an international agreement has proven so hard. The leading one is sabotage by climate science deniers. Ca...

Cardinal Pell leaving Rome in July 2017 to face charges in Australia

THE most senior Roman Catholic figure in Australia, Cardinal George Pell, has been found guilty of five incidents of historical sexual abuse of choirboys in the 1990s. Cardinal Pell had denied the charges.

The unanimous decision in the Victorian County Court came after the jury in a previous hearing was unable to reach a verdict. He will be sentenced in February.

The decision cannot be published in any Australian media because of a suppression order. Various media outlets are currently contesting the ban, imposed by Judge Peter Kidd on the grounds that coverage could prejudice other legal actions involving the Cardinal.

Cardinal Pell faces a trial in March next year on separate child sexual-abuse charges relating to the 1970s. However, the courts verdict has been widely disseminated in Australia through internet sites and soc...

Flash floods cause havoc in Melbourne, Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

Flash floods have caused havoc for some in Melbourne on Saturday afternoon, with flash flooding turning backyards, suburban streets and ponds into gushing rivers. A Christmas party at a Pakenham housing estate in the city's outer southeast was called off Saturday afternoon when heavy rainfall halted celebrations. Organiser Samantha Thorpe said a little pond nearby became "like a raging river". "It has never happened like this before."

Parts of Victoria in Australia hit with a month's worth of rain in a day as cyclone menaces north "IndyWatch Feed National"

Seventeen people have been rescued by helicopter and 100 people are stranded in their cars on a flooded Hume Highway in northeast Victoria. With more than a month's worth of rain already fallen across parts of northeast Victoria as wild weather rages across the state, authorities say some people have not heeded warnings about driving into floodwaters. "We've seen people that have had to be rescued from the roofs of their cars, 17 people in total, and 100 people have been stranded just to the south of Wangaratta," Victoria State Emergency Service chief officer Tim Wiebusch told reporters.
