Crisis? What crisis?

Crisis? What crisis?

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest

Denis Diderot 1

imageThe United Kingdom during the 1970s experienced the best of times with the lingering aftermath of the swinging sixties and the worst of times, which included its infamous winter of discontent. A decade beset by strikes, football hooliganism and power cuts witnessed the emergence of populist politics. An electorate exhausted by decline from stagflation and failure of Keynesian economics turned to Margaret Thatcher for salvation via the low road of blame and fear, which coincided with the long march of neoliberalism in the United States. This advocated a merger of state and corporate interests to align with Machiavelli’s meme….Keep your friends close and enemies even closer. It embraced free market ideology with a laissez faire doctrine from the Chicago school of economics via its profits of cents, which included Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. 215

Seasons in the sun

The current dominance of corporate enterprises within US politics is reminiscent of the Gilded Age and involved intensive lobbying via the Lewis Powell memorandum with regulatory and policy capture. It was a corporate blueprint to usurp democracy and counteract many of the progressive social reforms advocated by Ralph Nader during the 1960s, which exposed the turpitude of General Motors and established a national consumer campaign. This provoked an overwhelming and sustained offensive from corporate America via Alcoa executive John Harper and Bryce Harlow, a lobbyist for Procter and Gamble. More fervent and radical support followed through William Baroody Sr. and the American Enterprise Institute. Resplendent corporate offices appeared along Massachusetts Avenue near think tank row in the Washington DC swamp adjacent to Capitol Hill. Influential and noisy neighbours included the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute and the Bryce Harlow Foundation, which was established in 1982 to advance business and government relations and promote……Integrity in professional advocacy. It is Orwellian doublespeak for corporate malfeasance or kleptocracy and encourages profit through exploitation of vulnerable workers, erosion of labour standards and tax evasion….War is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength. 1640

The relentless campaign intensified during the Thatcher and Reagan alliance using the sophism of trickle-down economics. It increased exponentially via unfettered globalisation fuelled by rapid developments in information technology and electronic communication networks. Its intent was ruthless, especially throughout Chile in South America, which experienced a brutal coup d’état with the overthrow of its socialist President Salvador Allende.

The ideology was enthusiastically welcomed amongst many western democracies, which included the Hawke and Keating labour governments in Australia. Its momentum intensified during 1996 under the neoliberal John Howard regime with its draconian and extremely unpopular work choices legislation and subsequent dissolution of the truly independent National Occupational Health and Safety Commission. 4151

From 2007 the symbolic, acquiescent and economically conservative labour governments under Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard were preoccupied and constrained by the global financial crisis. Any attempts at meaningful reform including harmonisation of workplace health and safety legislation were somewhat superficial and in 2013 the populist politics of fear resurfaced via a liberal national coalition under the pugilistic mad monk, Tony Abbott. Its primitive low road gutter sniping tactics were supplemented by sloganeering and an inordinate preoccupation with blame, nationalism, immigration and terrorism. Amidst the cuckolding, philandering, bacchanalia and disunity, boom has turned to bust and growth has stalled with increasing inequality, stagnant wages and escalating debtWe had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun but the wine and the song like the seasons have all gone. 5264

Without any stature or charisma the current crop of douchebag cabinet ministers are reminiscent of deflated party balloons and bereft of any leadership attributes as the government lurches from one crisis to another. Statistics are manipulated to protect reputations and preserve the free market ideology with its escalating oppression on the road to serfdom. Meanwhile, federal and state governments conspire with corporations and resort to every conceivable scam in their bag of tricks to sustain growth with record profits. This includes cash bailouts, quantitative easing, reduced taxes and extraordinary low interest rates supplemented by extreme austerity measures to socialise deficits. However, funding growth via debt driven deception or subterfuge is unsustainable and as the economy tanks, neoliberalism with its free market ideology inevitably degenerates into ruthless catabolic capitalism……To live beyond the law you must be honest. 6573

The Friedman doctrine

Catabolic capitalism is an inevitable trajectory of the mercenary Friedman doctrine, which promotes a free market ideology and shareholder approach to corporate social responsibility with the primary objective of maximising profit. It advocates corporations direct its resources solely towards profitability and avoid the imbroglio of social or community issues, which eventually propagates oppression. The organisation accepts no social or moral responsibility towards society and it is transferred to shareholders who receive a proportion of profits as a reward for their investment and undertaking the concomitant risk. It is somewhat incongruous with common law duty of care and hardly reflects the object of preventive work health and safety legislation. Indeed, risk is essentially subjective and socially constructed although current curricula for accredited work health and safety tertiary education programs across Australia are inordinately objective. Its positivism reflects and aligns with the covetous Friedman doctrine in an exasperating and futile attempt to square the circle. 7489

The laissez faire philosophy merely dumps a kentledge of red tape downstream and establishes a tyranny of bureaucracy in a futile struggle to demonstrate due diligence via superficial administrative nostrums. Moreover as growth stalls, the corporation with its pathological pursuit of profit and power creates a dystopian psycopathocracy, which the entrepreneurial economists aspired to prevent. In many cases it degenerates into catabolic capitalism or even kleptocracy, especially throughout developing nations. 9098

Catabolic capitalism

Any society or economy that fails to develop is destined for premature extinction and many transnational behemoths continue plundering the planet’s finite resources and jeopardising the survival of future generations. Critics claim globalisation has generated extraordinary wealth and power for only a diminutive fraction of the global population and the subservient vestiges of humanity remain desperate and destitute. Even in a contracting economy, capitalism flourishes and remains remarkably resilient although it creates a miasma of devastating social consequences. The misery is often antagonised by gambling, prostitution, alcohol and other drugs with suicide and gratuitous domestic violence. It is frequently and dramatically interpreted by many screenwriters, playwrights and novelists including Jimmy McGovern, Mark Herman, Alan Bleasdale, Ken Loach and the late Alan Sillitoe. 99113

Under Thatcher’s elective dictatorship, deprivation, angst and existentialism became widespread across most sink housing estates in metropolitan cities throughout northern England and was intensified by her much maligned and monotonous war cry……There is no such thing as society. Many advocates of globalisation and capitalism underestimate its sheer brutality, which is often evident in the trade and perpetual war on illicit drugs or narcotics via its obsession with power and addiction to profit. Adam Smith’s invisible hand of capitalism is a contiguous assassin with the sole objective of increasing return on invested capital. There is no concept of liberty, equality or fraternity and issues such as justice, human rights, democracy, dignity, ecological sustainability and harmony are categorised as superfluous impediments. Capitalism will simulate loyalty to fulfil its objectives or betray allies instantly if there is a soupçon of boosting the bottom line and enhancing profit. 114131

It is during a crisis or conflict, especially following the collapse of financial services, manufacturing and other productive sectors that its venality remains unsurpassed. An autophagous process evolves as crepuscular and vituperative opportunists emerge from the shadows and flourish amidst the misery, despair and anomie. Sufficient evidence is provided with the demise of Queensland Nickel under a porcine and socially autistic Clive Palmer, aided and abetted by the fugitive Falstaffian director, Clive Mensink. The malaise is also prevalent throughout the franchising sector with its oppressive business models and unjust agreements. Noteworthy examples from across Australia include Domino Pizza Enterprises, and 7-Eleven convenience stores with the exploitation of vulnerable migrants and the collapse of many Retail Food Group outlets. 132147

Catabolic capitalism thrives on conflict and crime during a crisis and accumulates substantial profits by circumventing legislation and stockpiling scarce resources or commodities. Assets are stripped and equipment is sold at clearance sales whilst defenceless employees facing the bleak prospect of prolonged unemployment receive subsistence wages as sites are placed under care and maintenance. If the recession bites and profits dwindle, transnational conglomerates soon discover grand economies of scale and global production facilities become provisional liabilities or a material risk. The inevitable mergers and acquisitions are followed by factory closures, forced redundancies and pilfering of entitlements to remain solvent. 148157

Scavengers or speculators using borrowed cash purchase abandoned factories or warehouses, which are often laden with asbestos contaminated materials. Residual assets including plumbing, air conditioning and electrical fittings are removed and sold for scrap before they are pilfered. The dilapidated premises are given a lick of diluted distemper by exploited immigrants and leased to community welfare groups and other not for profit organisations that provide shelter or respite for fringe dwellers, homeless alcoholics, itinerant prostitutes and drug addicts. Surveillance cameras scan leased and sadly neglected parking lots, which are patrolled via private security firms with redneck tow truck operators from the tattoos to teeth ratio taskforce using pit bull terriers and compulsory baseball bats. 158162

Out of necessity or desperation catabolic capitalism encourages moonlighting and a black economy proliferates supplemented by payday loans or predatory lending using buy now pay later hire purchase schemes with extortionate interest rates. This is fortified by intimidating debt collection agencies as the soft power of a sinister cashless society invigorated by readily available credit augments an elective dictatorship. Impoverished families and their siblings reluctantly surrender to indentured servitude for the settlement of accrued generational debt that inevitably escalates when the economy stabilises and interest rates climb. It merely encourages ruthless exploitation of peons by rapacious corporate gangsters to boost profits in a determined, iterative and reckless race to the bottom. Former public servants with regulatory authorities are engaged as influential corporate lawyers or lobbyists via an enigmatic network of revolving doors or golden escalators. Governments are persuaded via integrity in professional advocacy to temper justice and regulatory or policy capture prevails. This undermines established preventive mechanisms, protocols and social welfare systems to stoke the corporate monster’s insatiable quest for profit and power. 163179

Structures that offered some degree of protection from pollution, unsafe work practices and other corporate crimes are eviscerated and emasculated and the remaining panjandrums provide a veneer of respectability without any rectitude or real power. The contraction eventually degenerates into a cataclysmic meltdown and businesses, consumers, homeowners, students, governments and banks are unable to service mounting debt via interest payments. Systemic defaults cause the financial system to implode and credit freezes. Assets evaporate and the entire edifice once considered too big to fail resembles a house of cards built on a flood plain. 180189

A day in the life

The recent spectacular collapse of Carillion, a transnational facilities management and construction services company in the United Kingdom’s was described as an unprecedented trading liquidation with liabilities of almost £7 billion. The organisation was established in July 1999 and via a series of aggressive strategic acquisitions it became the nation’s second largest construction company with approximately 43,000 employees. 190192

Despite several reservations regarding its extreme financial predicament the company continued trading until it went into compulsory liquidation. The catastrophic failure and insolvency led to multiple parliamentary inquiries with penetrating questions regarding the woeful performance of its directors and egregious internal and external auditors. The government’s privatised outsourcing of public service schemes and Carillion’s dark alliance and unhealthy relationships with regulators received excoriating condemnation. Its collapse was a litany of recklessness, hubris and greed underpinned by an assiduous mercenary business model, which was exacerbated by impulsive acquisitions and escalating debt. It also involved rampant exploitation of suppliers and impetuous expansion into new markets without any concept of due diligence. Authorised accounts substantially misrepresented commercial reality and annual dividends increased come hell or high water at the expense of funding pension schemes. Even during the airing of its dirty linen, executives were more preoccupied with increasing or securing their gratuitous performance bonuses. Its leadership team was merely a cast of delusional characters…..Oh the buzzin’ of the bees in the cigarette trees and the soda water fountain, where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings in the Big Rock Candy Mountain. 193206

Internal and external auditing was handled by the major accounting firms of Ernst & Young, Deloitte, KPMG and Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), who provide an extensive range of assurance services for public companies or private organisations. Evidence during a parliamentary inquiry suggests the multimillion dollar charade is a colossal and sentimental waste of time and money that merely offers superficial guarantees to investors, employees and the general public. Many shareholders and employees recognised the exogenous and endogenous risks but systemic inertia from Carillion executives and its torpid auditors aggravated by chronically passive regulators enabled the scatological storm. 207218

During one of many intense exchanges throughout the inquiry a labour party minister stated…He wouldn’t allow KPMG to do an audit on the contents of his fridge. The symbolic saccharine coated ritual provided a predetermined outcome for the client and substantial remuneration for the auditor. In June 2018, a report from the National Audit Office criticised the government’s handling of the collapse with its dilatory response and abject failure to detect fundamental financial irregularities involving a critical strategic supplier. PwC will collect almost £50 million for handling the liquidation although its activities were considered a potential conflict of interest. Its acclaimed professional services network supported the extravaganza with lucrative corporate guidance and strategic direction and then received millions unravelling the fiscal entrails and cleaning up the dung heap after the circus left town……For the benefit of Mr. Kite there will be a show tonight on trampoline. 219227

Several of the major auditing conglomerates involved in the Carillion debacle provided assurance services to the Australian federal government during implementation of its beleaguered home insulation program. Furthermore, the Queensland government self-insurance arrangements using accredited auditors failed to identify an operational risk of respirable dust in several underground coal mines. It has resulted in the resurgence of black lung with 89 confirmed cases of mine dust lung diseases. The independent JAS-ANZ scheme using surveillance and recertification audits by conformity assessment bodies with certified auditors was as equally ineffective. The Queensland Dreamworld coronial inquiry also identified significant anomalies with auditing and amusement theme park certification schemes. 228237

A joint parliamentary select committee described Carillion executives as fantasists chasing a pot of gold, which involved fiscal chicanery, aggressive accounting and juggling chainsaws in a ruthless dash for cash on estuarine mudflats. The organisation and its business model was patently unsustainable and the enigma was not about its collapse but that it continued trading for so long. Its business name was a portmanteau of carillon and construction and the demise triggered many alarm bells with devastating consequences. Directors and other senior executives have since slithered off into the sunset and left taxpayers with a bill exceeding £150 million. In 2013, the company received a £180,000 fine following a serious traffic incident during roadworks that left a motorcyclist paralysed and unable to communicate. Hindsight suggests Carrion would have been a much more appropriate moniker……I read the news today oh boy, four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire. 238245

House of cards

Despite the political rhetoric and manipulation of data to endorse the neoliberal government’s free market ideology Australia has witnessed the collapse of numerous companies following the resources boom. Many other organisations, especially small to medium enterprises are wallowing in a cesspool of escalating debt as the recession bites amidst crippling austerity although when blood is running through the streets, catabolic capitalism flourishes and relishes the conflict. 246250

The recent demise of RCR Tomlinson provides further substantive evidence covering the failure of laissez faire economics with its worship of the Friedman doctrine and traditional race to the bottom using borrowed cash. In November 2018, the company went into administration leaving unpaid debts of almost $630 million with employee entitlements, excluding redundancy payments, amounting to $32 million. It engaged almost 3000 permanent employees with additional widespread use of contractors and contingent labour hire across many of its projects. Preliminary investigations indicate its aggressive incursion into the construction of solar farms, especially throughout Queensland was a significant contributory factor. Its fixed price contracts were merely a race to the bottom and the organisation often absorbed the costs of project delays and other exogenous risks. Site inspections indicate electrical installations on many solar projects were performed using unlicensed contingent backpacker labour, which is inconceivable following the home insulation program debacle. The state government reactive response with its language of priorities is merely a tyranny of bureaucracy with more legislation via codes of practice and guidance standards. 251267

In October 2010 a labour hire boilermaker was struck by materials handling equipment during fabrication of a rotary cooler at the RCR Tomlinson workshop in Welshpool and died at the scene. Five years later the company was convicted and received a $90,000 fine in the Perth magistrates’ court. Meanwhile its chief executive officer, who holds two pretentious piled higher and deeper doctorates and drives to work in a swank Aston Martin with personalised registration plates, recently resigned amidst the corporate crisis and was substantially rewarded with a $1 million golden parachute. The outstanding achievements with such didactic, solipsistic and socially autistic leadership attributes should be conferred with an honorary fellowship of the Business Council of Australia. 268273

In 2016 Queensland Nickel collapsed with $300 million debts, which left almost 800 people facing the bleak prospect of long term unemployment. The federal government is pursuing around $70 million it paid in workers entitlements following the closure of Yabulu refinery near Townsville. The appointed liquidator recently obtained a supreme court order freezing the assets of its uncouth, obese and churlish director Clive Palmer, a former celebrity politician and property developer from the notorious white shoe brigade. Meanwhile during 2018, his flagship private company Mineralogy recorded a $355 million profit. 274282

In September 2012 the energy and infrastructure division of WDS Limited, formerly Walter Diversified Services, secured a substantial $280 million contract for the upstream APLNG project with Origin Energy. It required several hundred employees involving preparation and access for 350 well pads with an intricate network of gathering infrastructure for the western development region gas processing facilities. In September 2014 one of its employees, who was married with two young children, received fatal crush injuries joining polyethylene pipes with an industrial welding machine in a laydown yard at Reedy Creek, near Roma. 283287

The following year in 2015 after a serious incident at the Vale Eagle Downs coal mine in Queensland, the company went into voluntary administration. It expected to announce a full year loss of approximately $14 million, which was antagonised by Vale’s unexpected decision to redeem a $14.2 million insurance bond. It left the beleaguered organisation with escalating liabilities and a breached covenant over a GE Capital debt. Major clients included Glencore, Yancoal, South 32, Arrow Energy and Santos and its insolvency proved ominous for many other principal contractors throughout Australia’s resources sector. In 2014 the collapse of Perth based Forge Group with debts exceeding $207 million left many employees redundant. It encountered escalating costs with lean profit margins across several major construction projects, which included the Diamantina and West Angelas power stations. 288307

This race to the bottom and pyramid selling malaise is also prevalent throughout the residential construction sector. It was reinforced via the Cullen Group’s recent demise amidst debts exceeding $42 million to over 650 creditors. During 2016 it continued trading whilst insolvent and committed itself to $43 million worth of projects supported by a disproportionate bank overdraft facility of $2 million. Before its collapse the operations manager was appointed director of Onpoint Construction and evidence of illegal phoenix activities or rising from the ashes is widespread across the industry. 308311

State of Origin

The resources boom throughout Queensland involved extensive exploration and development of coal mines throughout the Surat-Bowen basin. It also included several controversial upstream coal seam gas projects with a vast intricate network of well sites, gas gathering, completions and processing facilities with numerous interconnecting pipelines across the region. Downstream activities involved construction of three integrated liquefied natural gas plants on Curtis Island near the port of Gladstone, which included the Queensland Curtis LNG, the Gladstone LNG and the Australia Pacific LNG projects. 312320

The $20 billion QCLNG project under the Queensland Gas Company, a subsidiary of the global BG Group, was mired in allegations of corporate malfeasance, deception and corruption from its inception. This was exacerbated by nauseating remuneration packages for several of its chief executives and the beleaguered merger eventually ended in acrimony with a trail of tears. The entire international BG Group was subsequently acquired by Royal Dutch Shell for approximately $70 billion amidst widespread redundancies across the project. 321330

The $18 billion Santos GLNG project was a joint venture involving Petronas, Total and Kogas and serious accusations emerged over revolving doors and circumvention of legislative requirements. Allegations indicate there was an inordinate emphasis on commercial considerations at the sacrifice of environmental approval processes. Santos awarded a major engineering, procurement and construction contract to Fluor Corporation, which reflected the frivolity of its due diligence and screening protocols. Indeed a former director was none other than the notorious Don Blankenship, who was recently sentenced to a year in prison following the Massey Energy mining disaster at Upper Big Branch in West Virginia. 331345

In 2009 a Lucas Drilling contractor suffered fatal crush injuries when a metal pipe rack fell from a semitrailer during unloading activities at a Santos rig near Injune. Another fatality occurred several years later when a Saxon Energy floor hand was crushed tripping out drill pipes on a drilling rig at the Santos GLNG upstream Fairview site, near Roma in Queensland. Since 2015, following the dramatic decline in oil prices and plummeting value of its shares, embattled Santos executives have resisted several takeovers. The besieged organisation has attempted to reinvigorate its tarnished image and reduce its substantial debt, which is morally or socially unachievable, especially following the fatalities of two young drillers. 346354

The $35 billion Origin APLNG project was a joint venture involving Sinopec, the China Petrochemical Corporation and the uncompromising and often hostile US conglomerate, ConocoPhillips. The project was embroiled in controversy amidst serious allegations of corporate malfeasance, which were raised via several courageous whistleblowing senior managers. Disturbing claims emerged of a deceptive corporate culture that belittled statutory requirements and merely tolerated the financial penalty of ineffective due diligence rather than achieving demonstrable compliance. 355360

Statements suggest Origin failed to maintain hundreds of its gas wells for over a decade and abandoned sites were often left unplugged, which significantly increased environmental risks. During senior management meetings numerous accounts emerged of contaminated aquifers, oil spills, explosions, fugitive gas emissions and the release of radioactive materials. The events potentially offered coal seam gas activists sufficient evidence to shut down projects or delay environmental approvals. Many incidents were casually discounted and excluded from internal reports or never notified to regulators. Attempts to report significant incidents often encountered obfuscation with intimidation, bullying and harassment.

Following a recent well integrity audit a senior compliance team member was requested to remove or moderate statements containing evidence of lapsed tenures, unregistered pipelines and unlicensed water extraction. After raising the issues the whistle blower was made redundant and lodged an unfair dismissal complaint. Several emails to the Queensland industrial relations minister regarding the unreasonable treatment provoked an impromptu visit from police officers attached to the cacotopian Queensland Fixated Threat Assessment Centre. The distressed victim was detained and involuntarily injected with aripiprazole, an antipsychotic drug but never charged……..Sanity is not statistical. 361374

As the project approached completion, oil prices plunged and the company share value plummeted. Embattled directors, including the chief executive and financial officers resigned and were rewarded with golden parachutes for their egregious performance. The organisation is still haemorrhaging and wallowing in austerity with debts exceeding $6 billion. This is socialised via exorbitant energy costs to consumers and it is only a matter of time before the decaying carcass is devoured by a global predator using borrowed cash……Credit is a system whereby a company that cannot pay gets another organisation which cannot pay to guarantee that it can pay. 375382

Arrow Energy’s commitment to coal seam gas in Queensland adopted a much more prudent approach with cautious final investment decisions. Its activities were a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell and PetroChina and included extensive upstream drilling of approximately 4000 wells with gathering and completions infrastructure throughout central and south west Queensland. This was supplemented by a pair of 500 kilometre pipelines feeding a proposed $20 billion downstream processing facility on Curtis Island and it received environmental approvals from federal and state governments. However, following the prolonged slump in oil prices the downstream processing facility was eventually ditched although upstream development of its extensive oil and gas reserves throughout the Surat and Bowen basins continued. 383394

Appeal to Reason

The name of James Reason in industrial safety is synonymous with the infamous Swiss Cheese Model and proprietary Incident Cause Analysis Method. Despite its multifactorial approach an inevitable auto da fé relies heavily on cause effect logic with rational decision making and the benefit of hindsight. Its inordinate positivism and prolonged bureaucratic mechanistic ritual reiterates statements of the bleeding obvious and furtively redirects or allocates blame onto subordinates, which stokes the carousel of culpability. 395402

Appeal to Reason was a US socialist newspaper published by Julius Wayland at the turn of the twentieth century in the small Kansas town of Girard that became home for many radical migrant miners. In its unabridged serial edition of The Jungle by renowned muckraker Upton Sinclair, the publication unveiled appalling conditions, angst and despair amidst Chicago’s stockyards, abattoirs and fertiliser plants with the brutal exploitation of vulnerable Baltic migrants. The politically influential and critically acclaimed novel was even acknowledged by Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt and generated public outrage, which culminated in the establishment of the US Food and Drug Administration. However, its intent and altruistic polemic was a humanitarian appeal against the subjugation of workers, indentured servitude and penury. It advocated extensive social reform, which produced an unexpected corollary with widespread concern over public health and food safety standards and a frustrated response from its honourable author……..I aimed for the public’s heart and by accident, I hit it in the stomach. 403415

The cultural theory of risk is based on a central ontological assumption that risk is a social construction in a particular historical and social context and there is no epistemological superiority between laity and scientific knowledge systems. Expert wisdom often contains many cunning streetwise elements whilst technical information, especially standard operating procedures, disregards the pragmatic reality of life outside of the laboratory. 416418

Nonetheless during boardroom negotiations in London’s Square Mile or Manhattan’s FiDi to secure finance for major energy resources and mining projects, the brutal language of priorities amongst socially autistic mercenaries is somewhat different. Corporate social responsibility is not even a blip on the radar. The laws of the jungle prevail and encumbrances such as safety and environmental risks are casually discounted and attract a 10% gratuity, only if the fourth estate is invited and cameras are rolling. After the deal is secured, Pecksniffian corporate safety managers are appointed and inveigled by a remuneration package, which barely covers interest rate repayments on their heavily mortgaged properties. The role involves skating on thin ice and navigating the safety space between the Friedman doctrine and securing the health and safety of people at work. Meanwhile, obsequious safety crusaders offer ingratiating assistance and patrol projects correcting solecisms in safe work method statements and enforcing compliance via the black box psychology of behavioural safety in a futile attempt to demonstrate due diligence. 419432

Rampant unfettered neoliberalism with its laissez faire doctrine and malevolent freedom to harm has emasculated the entire legislative framework and the SafeWork Australia strategy. There is ample substantive evidence of devastating consequences, which include numerous mining disasters, catastrophic environmental incidents and emergence of occupational diseases such as mesothelioma, black lung and silicosis. It also generates increasing psychosocial issues, escalating debt and rising inequality, which curtails economic growth and a few people with a lot of cash always spend less than lots of people with a little amount of money. Corporate social responsibility amongst most transnational behemoths is merely a patina of respectability and sufficient profits are never enough. Executive sociopaths are invariably surrounded by lickspittle subordinates and unaccustomed to repudiation. However, the recent protests in Paris and confrontation with its President of the Rich are reminiscent of the soixante-huitard movement and a volatile laity is letting its leaders know how much is too much……You can blow out a candle but you can’t blow out a fire. 433448
