    THE DEMOCRATIC ASSEMBLY -- DISCUSSION ONE -- MAKING A START

    The Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country ranked in terms of its total land mass and adjoining area.

    Australia is described as a federation, a constitutional monarchy, and a parliamentary or representative democracy. (See "Background Information")

    In this discussion, are our opening thoughts in our quest to find a solution to a better form of government in Australia, and the factors involved in seeking a new method of governing ourselves, if such a thing is desirable or even possible.


    First things first.  If this is your first venture into our discussion, then please acquaint yourself with the blog rules of discussion, and the preliminary items about how the present government system works, if you need to be updated with the way government works now.

    THE DEMOCRATIC ASSEMBLY -- INVITE TO DISCUSS -- REASON FOR CHANGE

    OLIGARCHY

    An oligarchy is where a small number of powerful, influential or wealthy people control the mass of the population. Oligarchy, is a despotic power exercised by a small and privileged group for sometimes corrupt or usually selfish purposes.
    A plutocracy is a subset of an oligarchy. In a plutocracy, the leaders are rich. The leaders in an oligarchy don't have to be rich, even though they usually are.

    It could be argued that this is effectively the system of government in Australia, being dressed up as “democracy”.

    The Argument

    THE DEMOCRATIC ASSEMBLY -- PROPOSITION AND INVITE TO DISCUSS -- CONCERNING DEMOCRACY

    What exactly IS democracy?

    Do people need to be lead...do we need leaders?

    The concept of   "...government for the people by the people"  appears to be a lost cause, in the sense that  "the people" have very little say in what goes on in National Australian affairs. Certainly, once in every few years an election is held, at which in in the case of the 2019 election, 1,361 candidates offered their services to be representatives. in the senates and lower houses of 8 jurisdictions. The highest number of candidates was in Victoria where 257 people "stood" for the lower house, and 82 for the senate. In Australia there are eight senates and 8 lower houses, one for each State and Territory.

    Therefore in can be assumed that the attraction of the job is not lost on people. The pay and conditions are excellent, as are the benefits.
