When I was a kid and I thought about how hostile forces might overthrow a country I thought that they might do a few things.
Attack from within: the country can fight a known aggressor but when the aggressor infiltrates the government and the social class they are more difficult to fight.
Remove the population's ability to reason: propaganda works that way and so do many other religions and dogmas
Strike at the utilities: Water, Roads, Sanitation Communications, Electricity. Cripple these things and you cripple a country.
So in the wash up of An Inconvenient Truth, surely the forces of darkness have managed to do this with our electricity supply. In South Australia we currently have the most expensive electricity in the world, and some of the least reliable.
Businesses are leaving the state because it just makes sense, and we have cemented our position as the rustbucket state. My advice to my three children is to get out of South Australia, build a career and come back when it's time to raise kids (or retire).
One of my children had already chosen that for himself, and I have a few young friends who have successfully done just that. Shoutout to Andy and Lolly, who are raising a two month old baby Elliott.
South Australia: How did we get here?
