Free Speech, Freedom of Association...

The slow crawl to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Association which many Aussies think we already have (but are sadly mistaken as they are implied rights)....

The way I see it is Australians dont have rights, we have priviledges...Which at anytime can be revoked by some wankers with hidden (and sometimes no so hidden) agenda's.

Until those priveliges are enshrined as rights our population will continue to be subjected to political whims under the guise of safety for the citizens.

This surely should be debated, publically before the upcoming possible referendum and added to the paper.
