+Richard Healy​​ I can grok that. The fine distinctions between "working" and "middle" classes don't really mean much to me. Anyone who needs to work to maintain a basic living standard is working class in that sense.

+Holland Rhodes​​ absolutely. I find it remarkable that the system that used to enforce property rights over human beings is still partially active.

Seriously Australian Electoral Commission, don't fuck up our democracy with stealable elections. Internet voting is a difficult and fraught area. There are actually good reasons for not trying it at all.
A security flaw in New South Wales’ Internet voting system may have left as many as 66,000 votes vulnerable to interception and manipulation in a recent election, according to security researchers. Despite repeated assurances from the Electoral Commission that all Internet votes are “fully encrypted and safeguarded,” six days into online voting, Michigan Computer Science Professor J.

This is an unsolvable problem. If the voter can verify their own vote, so can the man with a rubber hose.

With property rights being created before our eyes with ongoing advance of intellectual property, it is worth pondering the point that for every right granted another has been lost. Property is created not out of thin air but rather by theft and unjust appropriation from others. In the case of land it comes from enclosing commons or driving away hunter gatherers. In the intellectual sphere it comes from appropriating cultural artefacts and preventing them from returning to the public domain.

"there is no property in durable objects, such as lands or houses, when carefully examined in passing from hand to hand, but must, in some period, have been founded on fraud and injustice.”

—David Hume Of the Original Contract

It seems that with most agreements people don't read the details (software, apartment lease, phone, utility contracts). There's just the assumption they're not going to put something ridiculous in there. I rented a place once where the owners were attorneys - they slipped every loophole available into the rental agreement. Most places in San Francisco included water, heat, and garbage. They divided the costs among tenants.

They are a very multiethnic country, and that's one of the reason why ultra rights don't get much of support.

No.

There are no proximate causes here. The market's behavior during the flash crash was caused by the intersection of HFT spoofing algorithms, some big, dumb manual spoofing, and a few large banks' quick-but-stupid automated sell triggers. This resulted in a purely automated feedback loop which was beyond the control of any particular market actor, however large. (Or, in this case, however small.)

The fact that an unusually dumb spoofing operation was part of the cause simply demonstrates the brittleness which occurs at the interface of complex systems which make different assumptions about market behavior, but -- most importantly -- do not assume each other's behavior. Because they cannot. Because the specifics of that behavior are trade secrets.
Also he was pretty obvious about spoofing for five years, but got away with it by being rude.

Quiggin on Piketty on Australia.
There are several reasons why Australia has not been typical of English speaking countries in terms of rising inequality and falling social mobility. This doesn't mean that that there aren't some worrying trends in this area but Australian social and economic performance has been more similar to Western European countries which haven't experienced quite the same level of aristocratic capture of system as has happened in Britain and the USA. Government policy matters and there is no need to consider the direction taken in most of the Anglosphere as the only model for Australia's future — except perhaps as something to avoid.
