On tonight's show Andy & Ethan join me to discuss what's been happening here and around the world over the last month. Namely the Referendum here in Australia and the Israel/Palestine conflict.
We discuss the lead up to the vote where the propaganda campaign from the Yes promoters was relentless and well funded. Referendum day Saturday October 14th came and went and so did the hopes of the Yes voters with the No vote winning an approximate 60% overall.
We dive in to what it means for us Australians now especially in light of the States intentions to plough ahead with their own versions of The Voice to Parliament. A Voice to State Parliament perhaps?
We also go over Ethan's latest piece on the Referendum result and how it can be potentially weaponised against the Australian people. Never let a good crisis go to waste you might say. The tabled Communications Legislation Amendment (Combatting Misinformation & Disinformation) Bill will likely use the election result to say that the Voice lost due to online misinformation as the talking heads are already parroting this very sentiment.
We switch gears and focus our attention on the middle-east conflict between Israel and Palestine. The first victim of this war being the truth. Talk about misinformation and disinformation or basically downright fear and atrocity propaganda to the public siding with Israel. But is this newest conflict by design? If so, by who and to what end? Could this simply be modus operandi by Israel for yet another encroaching land grab? We'll see.
