DANIEL Ellsberg wasn't a typical dissenter: Harvard-educated, he had served two years in Vietnam as a civilian in the State Department and earlier worked for the Pentagon on nuclear weapons policy. Unable to remain silent about the White House’s belief that the war was “unwinnable”, in 1971 he leaked the Vietnam history, known as the Pentagon Papers, to The New York Times and other US newspapers, defending his actions as upholding the highest principles of the US Constitution.Ellsberg was tried under the US Espionage Act and the trial was thrown out of court. Here is the interesting bit: The US Supreme Court ruled that only a free and unrestrained press could effectively expose deception in government. Think about that in relation to Australia and the way the Government has been lying to the people. Unfortunately, our free press seems complicit in the cover-up.
(Daniel Ellsberg) had a system of decision-making called the Ellsberg Paradox named after him. It was a theory that demonstrated how people are naturally risk-averse and prone to making decisions based on a hazard that doesn’t exist.
The really unfortunate thing is that, if the Gang-Green get their way, her child's future will be much worse. High unemployment prospects due to employers relocating off-shore, uncertain power supply due to the vagaries of renewable energy, uncertainty as to food supply as the gang-greens chase farmers off the land.
If we only had a free, enquiring, unrestrained press, they would expose the deceptions of the Greens and the Government.
