This guy used to be a member here. His magazine has long been extremely critical of AQUIS and Customs. Now it seems he believes they are trying to kill him....(in cahoots with chemical and aviation industries)

Weel I'm no fan of government getting out side its duty.i am not a authorized practitioner of psychiatric condition nor authority on constitution. . I'm thinking though that we have a over active government invading the god given right for a person to buy a boat.
Even if this person may or may not be afflicted with a sensitivity disorder and may or may not be close to getting admitted for a bi polar affliction.
I think by law he should be allowed an interpreter and a pr consultant to explain in simple terms what he is trying to say.
Recently we had a lady with Porno pictures taped all over her unclad body showing evidence of government wrongs. She had a better group of shrinks and pr people helping her.

Probably caused by inhaling resin fumes while building his boat.

he has got a point though,
the slow creep of orwellian invasion of personal privacy in every aspect of ones lives in western countries has been accepted as an every day part of life.

during the course of a normal day the individual is probably viewed by at least 15 different secrurity cameras,their phone conversations scanned for key words,as are emails,cookies examine your preferences and collect data any time you are logged on to the www.

using an atm will flag your location,as will having a mobile in your pocket,google maps is constantly updating the state of your backyard!

processed food is packed with sugar,and other bulking agents of low nutritional value,designed after the sugar rush to creat a craving for more to raise artificially lowered blood sugar.

tobbacco and alcohol provide great revenue streams for goverments,who fervently decry the the use,yet do nothing to stop the source........

our politicians,many who start out as social reformers end up retiring as directors on the boards of the companies that oppressed the workers,nesescitating the need for social reformers!

as noam chomsky said,quote
"The smart way to keep people passive and obiedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion,but allow lively debate within that that spectrum"

with all powerful government agencies that control all aspects of our lives,the old old question is "who polices,the police?"

though in bob's case maybe he should be taking "Prozac", a normal person

This fellow is not exhibiting clear ideation; he is suffering. One can only hope there is some help for him.

I have had a great deal of sympathy with the earlier campaign concerning boat arrival in Australia. However, this seems to be a little beyond the bounds of possibility.
