Our conservative(!) government has pretty much gone full on socialist. The stimulus is something like a third of a trillion. They are handing out money left, right and centre. Paying employers to keep their employees on the books; paying all the unemployed twice as much as the normal dole rate; removing mutual obligations from getting the dole (means you just get it now without having to do anything in return for it); depositing money into people's bank accounts (got my first $750 today :) ); and just now they made childcare free! Fucking socialists! :lay:

We are now officially the People's Marxist Republic of Australia, with Scomo as General Secretary of the Party...

Imagine if petrol stations paid you to take their products. In a true capitalist world that is what should happen :lol:

Petrol and diesel prices here are 30 or 40 % lower than before the crisis. As I may have said earlier, Bron and I are travelling so little that we aren't really getting an advantage out of it!

I've had my ex's spare care for the last month. I'm loving the cheap fuel.

True Capitalism would allow the Oil companies to fail.

Therefore we are no longer in the Capitalist era. This is Corporatism. Our taxes will be used to help them out. :sulk:

The problem with capitalism is you eventually run out of other people's lives.
