Then there is no record other than security camera footage. Especially don't use credit cards to pay for prostitutes or drugs, in case you one day want to become a politician. No privacy, no information. It isn't democracy when citizens fear their Government, it is tyranny. The Government is known as a habitual liar and seeking harm to those it thinks it can bully, while being in the pockets of the rich who pay little to no tax and lust after every luxury and perversion with seemingly impunity, and this includes the do-evil Churches.
Using threats and violence against citizens who fail to comply makes this a Government unworthy to govern. The LNP are nothing more than a mouth piece for the indulgent rich and those aspiring to become so, but never will. Lies and deceptions.
The census, interrogation en mass. And that presupposes a relatively benign government. The possibility of abuse rises exponentially when someone even slightly dodgy, say another Silvio Berlusconi, gains power. That's a bit harsh! But I do agree with your sentiments!
Will anyone explain to "Democracy"? Not the meaning of the word, but in real life? Democracy is codified mob rule. Democracy assumes that the majority of people are educated enough and self actualising enough to elect representatives that will do the right thing. The mob unfortunately shows that it is not prepared for these elected representatives to do what is necessary even if it causes some discomfort, so they vote for popular people, or for those who they perceive will make their lives better, not necessarily the lives of everyone.
So democracy is about elected representatives doing the popular thing to keep the mob happy and engaged enough so that they don't rise up and do something. For democracy to work we need to have a sense of community, where people are prepared to look out for their neighbour, to look out and help a stranger in need, to be prepared to actually put the needs of others before our own personal need or greed when it is the right thing to do.
Then and only then does democracy work well. Winston Churchill once quoted an unknown professor: "Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.?
This is representative democracy you're talking about. And it's not a given that they'll represent you instead of other stakeholders who benefit said representatives more. Liberal democracy is supposed to enshrine individual rights. Including privacy. And "community spirit" more often than not works against that. You've described Labor and the Unions perfectly.

By the way, you are really grasping at straws with that comparison, and you know it. Are you one of those deluded people that thinks you may get rich one day, and Liberal policies will actually benefit you? OMG I want to thank you all for some of the most hysterical nonsense I have had the pleasure to read where else can I get the "rabid right" and "loony left" and every other kind of delusional, paranoid self interested know-all spruiking fondly held beliefs I really have to stop reading these posts at work, I am starting to disturb my colleagues with my laughter and exclamations of sheer incredibility at many of the comments on this blog please keep up the good work Or in respect to fixing the senate voting processes and the funding from the public purse for electoral candidates so that major partiy candidates gain a huge advantage over candidates generally.
I suggest we put on every ballot paper a box for 'the unknown candidate' that any voter can record a preference for - thus showing their opinion of the named candidates while voting formally. If the 'unknown candidate' is elected, then a council of about 40 electors of that electorate would be formed by random draw from the roll to advise one of their number drawn from among them by ballot who would be the 'member' in the parliament.
That 'member' might be re-ballotted from the council members every three months or so. Thanks to advice from my long departed father I can't remember ever answering a census accurately. Much more fun to make it up as you go. I don't usually find myself agreeing with the IPA but I have to on this issue.
My name adds no value to the data collected for the ABS in the census and withholding or destroying my identification does not cause any detriment to the work of the ABS. If I bother completing the form this time around I will withhold any identifying information. If the data has to suffer for this so be it. If I remember correctly, there is no escape from filling in the census form.

But, I will have control over what I put into it! And I can be very, very creative when necessary.
Just complete each field with whatever strange response you want. No-one will hold you responsible. But they will have you're name now, that they can legally access and publish, should the information be to outlandish to them. Australia in 20 years time, just might be. And that is the problem. My children suddenly become a problem because of what I have said. This collection of data is so unobtrusive, it is scary, but once they know your history, religion, and birth name.
Is so quickly forgotten, this is more like the Nazi rules than an Australia government agency, I think this even beats Trump outrages vocabulary! And the Media was quiet on this one. Comparing this to and Nazi Germany is an insult to those that suffered. Persecution and death does not come close to this. Pull back on the hysteria a touch. People forget that Hitler was voted in before he seized power.

Sound familiar? It was only months ago people were comparing Abbotts policies to dictatorships. I'm concerned about the future, the Australia Card was howled down because of "Big Brother" control fear, only to be replaced by Howard as the Medicare Card number. It is so easy these days to link up information in data banks, and is done regularly.

If the police or medical people can access what is available now, who knows what ASIO, ASIS,etc can find, let alone anyone with not so honourable intentions foreign governments, etc, etc I have young children and I have grave reservations about giving out private information that has the capacity to injure them or their future. The more compelling the argument, the easier it is to agree with it. Chris Berg is at his best when he writes about privacy matters because, implicit to his argument, is the acknowledgement that human weakness eg greed, incompetence, irrationality, etc affects behaviour.
I'm appalled at what information about themselves people make freely available on social media. Maybe that's why the ABS can make such relatively bold move - For many people, the potential breaches of privacy would not be much greater than the personal information already published in the public domain. UM, a while back the key issue with data privacy was an asserted right of a person to be able to find out what data an organisation was holding, a right to have errors in data corrected and control over who had access to the data. This seems to have died off. The more common scenario these days is where organisations refuse to tell you what information they have about you for privacy reasons.
A sad inversion to be sure! Habeus data is a protection that Brazilian citizens enjoy under their Bill of Rights. We don't even have a Bill of Rights. I recently have tried to become as anonymous as possibly online. I've read article after article and to say it's confusing is an understatement.
You can install 'abc' to your browser but be aware that it will make many web pages crash. Then you scroll to the comments and some hacker is stating that they hacked 'abc' months ago and that's it's worthless. Makes you feel like giving up. Just take the keys to my house and my wallet, I can't protect them. Before being so generous to the IPA I think you should consider the extent we have an interest in protecting ourselves against private excesses in collecting and using abusing our private information. Like many people replying I will also be 'creative' when filling it out.
