"Turnbull Trio" Caught With Smoking Gun - Townsville Smart City Deals' Catastrophic Legacy

Qld Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull
and Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill, Dec 2016

The "smoking gun" of the Turnbull Trio's Townsville City Deal, Smart Cities Plan has been revealed with a plethora of experts contributing their assessments of the technology behind the network, Internet of Things (IoT), confirming with undeniable accuracy that specific security breach events are occurring with growing risk to the nation, communities and individuals in 2017.

Australia's peek science bureau, the CSIRO's Director of Digital Productivity and Services Flagship, Dr Ian Oppermann said:

"Australia's future is digital, hyper-connected and critically dependent on technology, making strong cyber security capability crucial to navigating the associated risks and opportunities ahead. Our increased dependence on technology, combined with the evolving complexity and sophistication of cyber security threats, together increase our level of vulnerability - at a national, organisational and individual level. (Enabling Australia Digital Future; cyber security trends and implications, Dr Ian Oppermann, Director, Digital Productivity and Services Flagship, CSIRO, 2014)

Don't know what to buy a friend? Try something smart!


Reminiscent of the colonial era experienced by the first Australians and American Indians, and other passive indigenous cultures in the 18th and 19th centuries, the race for the resource-rich continents of the Information Age is in full swing.

Instead of gold, spices, lumber, coal, oil and fertile land, the new frontier is an ultimate utopia of global power and infinite intelligence. Ironically the colonial tradition of Mr Turnbull is not only mixed in his narcissistic leadership style, he carries on a colonial tradition by naming his son's middle name "Bligh" after colonial Governor William Bligh killed during the rum rebellion.

If the reader identifies with colonial representation as a beneficiary than the veracity of the observations brought to light in this blog will feel inconsequential. But if you can relate to the people who are not equipped to defend their property like the cultures of the "new world" after Cook and Columbus, than the following information may feel alarming to say the least. It will depend on your socioeconomic place in this world of information and smart machines.

Driving the connectivity of smart technologies are corporate and political global elitism and the prophetic appetite of leaders seeking universal rule as did the ecclesiastical doctrine of Roman papacy. In a climate of growing consumer tribalism, vanity, idols and virtual reality, the global elite are collectively challenging the human rights of people's identity to faith, freedom and peace. The life of ordinary citizens in the developed world are under serious threat in a time of systematic state-sponsored murder, cyber terrorism, identity and property theft via hacking agencies the likes of which the world has never witnessed.

Just last Sunday, the Roman Catholic Pope Francis said; "Terrorism grows when there is no other option, and as long as the world economy has at its center the god of money and not the person. This is fundamental terrorism, against all humanity."

Once upon a time a simple sign on the fence " trespasses will he prosecuted" would deter criminals from entering private property.  Now government's are saying if you hack us and enter my property without permission, we will hack you back with smarter technologies, and if suitable, inflict greater loss. Where are the new boundaries and when is the trespassing, cyber terrorism and private property threat going to stop?

Well the global financial, political and technology elite, not dissimilar to the story and ideology of Mr Turnbull, are forming Union's with the corporate world to control data and "information on everything" for economic, security, political and ideological purposes. Yet instead of focusing on a rationale prosecuting the trespassers, corporate intelligence and cyber mercenaries are hired to build better hacking and cyber trespassing techniques to fight crime with more crime, and even wage war.

Yet the value of humanity, and its freedoms, are being traded and bought just like the Americans did to Mexico, and the British did to Australia. The other neo-colonial and neo-imperial policies have achieved this throughout human history where territorial boundaries are unclear and legitimate authority for law and order is immature.

Mr Turnbull is no stranger in exercising corporate and imperial muscle. His university don wrote to him at Oxford and said he is "always going to enter life's rooms without knocking". He has applied this attitude to much of his professional life including:
  • On 14 September 2015, after 30 consecutive Newspolls had put the Liberals far behind Labor, Turnbull resigned from the Cabinet and announced he would challenge Abbott for the leadership of the Liberal Party. Turnbull stated that Abbott "was not capable of providing the economic leadership we need" and that the Liberal Party needs a "style of leadership that respects the people's intelligence."
  • Appointed three additional woman from 2 to 5 to his 2015 cabinet and increased the cabinet ministers from 19 to 21. He also appointed the first female Defense Minister (no surprise he is working with the first female Mayor of Townsville and 2nd female Premier of Queensland).
  • Turnbull's handling of the OzCar affair led to a large decline in his and the Liberal Party's approval ratings in opinion polls. On 22 June the e-mail Grech had provided to the Liberal Party to support this allegation was found to have been faked by Grech; later admitted by Grech, and an Australian National Audit Office inquiry on 4th August cleared both Rudd and Swan of any wrongdoing.
  • On the eve of the dot com burst in 1999, Mr Turnbull sold his share in Ozemail for $57m escaping a massive financial loss.
  • As Chairmen of Axiom Forestry Resources in the 1990s, his "clear logging operation in the Solomon Islands were threatened for closure by the then Solomon Island government for 'consistent breaches of logging practices.'
  • The Royal Commission into privatisation of HIH Insurance called Mr Turnbull in for questioning. No wrongdoing was found at the time by Goldman Sach who he represented.
  • Acquiring software companies Webcentral, eventually acquired by Melbourne IT, which was big data storage facility. In 2012, Melbourne IT was hacked by "Anonymous". Turnbull also acquired web company Chaos.com at the time.
  • A leak of millions of papers from Panama Law firm Mossack Fonseca showed how some wealthy companies and individuals have moved money around the world to avoid paying taxes. "Mr Turnbull was first named in the documents in May 2016, when it was revealed he was once a director of Starr Mining and Star Technology Service, exploring for gold in Russia, which was set up by Mossack Fonseca. Mr Turnbull dismissed any impropriety at the time, saying the company had not made any profits, and would have paid taxes in Australia if it had." (Sydney Morning Herald, June 2016)
At the heart of the Smart Cities Plan for Townsville is a concept of networking called IoT. It aims to connect everything to the internet including public infrastructure such as traffic lights, buildings, meters, etc. and personal devices such as mobile phones, FitBit wearables, the family car sensors, home appliances and everything to which a sensor and wifi, bluetooth or ethernet node is available.

Internet protocols known as ICP/IP addresses is critical to the functionality of the network architecture. IP addresses have existed since the internet was invented. Electronic sensors have existed for many years also in industrial and public use on devices such as CCTV cameras and weather monitoring machines.

However, as we transition from the "Industrial Age" to "Information Age" to the "Machine Age" in the space of the next 10-20 years, Townsville's Smart City Deal puts the citizens of North Queensland on the front line in the battle for global resources, productivity and lifestyle. Not dissimilar to a time of colonial invasion and advancement.

But for the majority of people it will be a battle for survival, where the fight for constitutional rights of freedom, peace and security is the legitimate sacrifice for economic and political glory in the eyes of public relations advisors, media advisors and the more contemporary role of "hacking advisors".

Manipulation of information and the truth is a cultural norm in politics as it was in the days of tobacco advertising, chemicals and pesticides. And as Mr Turnbull's character references have shown, "walking into a room without asking" and valuing debate over free speech and truth is a signature value of his business and academic pursuits.

States such as Russia and America are in a cyber war. Reports in the The Guardian and Australian Financial Review have confirmed Russian intelligence agencies hacked a leader's emails on the Clinton's Democratic campaign, releasing them to WikiLeaks and onto the general public, to manipulate the election of Donald Trump.

Read further:

"After the data breach the DNC hired CrowdStrike, a cyber security company. It quickly established the hack had originated in Russia and identified two groups, Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear. Cozy Bear, linked to Russia’s FSB spy agency, had begun its phishing operation in summer 2015, the paper reported." (Luke Harding, The Guardian, 16th Dec 2016).

Companies such as Dyn, Internet service provider and an independent journalist (separate events) have been hacked just recently. Our own defense department, and CSIRO have been hacked by China in the past 2 years.

Even the Australian courts cannot control the hacking and associated "PR stunts" as seen in a recent copyright ruling in Victoria.

"But even with stronger forms of website blocking, there are ways informed internet users can beat the system and access the sites they want. As such, there has been plenty of doubt cast over the impact of the site-blocking regime. A number of experts have said in its current form in Australia, site blocking is a futile exercise. It’s why Internet Australia CEO Laurie Patton has labelled last week’s ruling and the subsequent blockades as a “PR stunt”. (Nick Wigham, news.com, Internet users bypass Pirate Bay block instantly, 21st Dec 2016).

In the last month, the IT security industry experts have cast their observations about the vulnerability of IoT networks, saying;

"There will be a large-scale IoT security breach next year, according to analyst firm Forrester, which gave its 2017 predictions for the IoT space in a report for CIOs released yesterday."
“It added that the biggest targets would be the likes of fleet management in transportation, security and surveillance applications in government, inventory and warehouse management apps in retail, and industrial asset management in primary manufacturing – all areas where IoT adoption is rife."
"If mediocre malware can power some of the largest DDoS attacks ever, and considering the sad state of security of the Internet of Things in general, we should probably brace for more cyber attacks powered by our easy-to-hack “smart” Internet of Things, as many, including ourselves, had predicted months ago."
“I am just surprised at how such a trivial attack code could be responsible for such a large DDoS. It really says a lot more about the state of IoT security than the specifics of the malware,” a security researcher that goes by the name Hacker Fantastic told Motherboard. “If people still aren’t changing default passwords and disabling telnet on Internet connected equipment in 2016 then we are heading to a future with more incidents like this happening.”
"My concern about both robot assembly and IoT is that it further and further specializes tasks in a system that needs less complexity, not more. I’m also guessing that IoT might be a little less popular once more people realize that their cars, and their homes, fridges, etc. can be hacked and their lives interfered with by agents official and freelance and they won’t know the difference till they get the bill or end up in the ditch." (Forrester, 2016)

IoT is not a patented or propriety invention of a private company. Instead it is a collaboration of a variety of technologies and companies led by multinational conglomerates like IBM, Intel, Google, Apple, Huawei, and KPMG.

Huawei’s "links to the Chinese government led to it being controversially banned for tendering for NBN work by the Australian government back in 2012. However, it has continued to maintain a high-profile presence in the country and recently announced its plans to become known outside of the smartphone and telco sector, as a cloud services provider." (Paul Wallbank, Australian Financial Review, 19th Sep 2016).

The ownership structure of Huawei is bizarre to say the least. Its’ employees, through a Union-like structure own the majority shares but they have no voting authority or management power. The company was set up by its CEO Mr Ren Zhengfei's, a Chinese army officer with 1.5% ownership and his daughter Cathy Meng as the company's Chief Finance Officer (CFO).

The business accounting and auditing firm KPMG is the principal program managers and business system consultants heading up the non-profit Smart Technology organisation, Hypercat Australia under the direction of the Prime Minister's own department.

No coincidence the Union-like configuration of the Hypercat Australia structure. A non-profit organisation Mr Turnbull says but the commercially focused members are set to profit anormously from the individual contracts being offered by local councils and the knock on business 2 business (b2b) profits.

The convoluted structure of the largest telecommunications company on the planet, the Union owned Huawei Technologies, masks an accountability and governance structure for easy "cover up", PR stunts and easy manipulation of an uneducated public. Limiting liability and prosecution of elite corporate directors also has been alleged to exist with the Indian-owned Adani corporation recently approved to establish the largest coal mine in Queensland.

But what hasn't been fully disclosed to the Townsville and Australian public is the independent expert assessment of the IoT network. Why? Because it is a significant residual risk to public infrastructure and personal identity and safety. It is the smoking gun that is being concealed by the "Turnbull Trio" and purposefully being avoided by the banking industry because of personal security risks.

The size and cost of production of this technology had made the Smart Cities Plan cost prohibitive until now. Well at least that is what the "Turnbull Trio" is leading the country to believe and Mayor Hill and Premier Palaszczuk are either his alibi or accomplice.

Mark Say, UKAuthority.com reported the following with respect to the UK Government's implementation of the IoTs network in its local City Council areas of the United Kingdom under the direction of former Prime Minister, David Cameron.

“Unless people feel confident that their data is not going to be mishandled, all these developments are at risk of being slow off the mark and missing an opportunity. We need to get data confidence right quite early and the way to do it is through an industry-led effort. Some is being made under the Digital Economy Council but it needs more companies to get involved."

“It boils down to having much more simplified terms and conditions that explain to people how their data is going to be used. The controversial element is that you shift the focus from data collection to data use, and that I think has got to be key for liberating data to do all this stuff.” (Mark Say, UKAuthority.com)

The Director of Strategy at a UK City Council, Mr Snelson said;

“We have done some work on data sharing and confidentiality to work through some of those things, but one of my fears is that if you ask the question too hard you’ll just stop and not do anything. There’s a balance to be struck, and maybe just getting on and waiting until you hit the barriers is not a bad thing.”

“It all amounts to a bunch of identifiable problems and a few unknowns that create risks that many councils are reluctant to take. But Snelson made clear that more have to overcome that reluctance if smart cities are going to become much more than a nice idea: One of the things that will be critical to the UK’s success is having cities that are ready to take risks.”(Mr Snelson, Director of Strategy)

Donald Trump personal tweet 22 Dec 2016

The Australian and United States government's proposed solution is to spend billions of tax payer dollars over the next 10 years on corporations to build cyber security walls and proliferate nuclear armaments as a deterrent to states and entities from taking lethal military force.

Despite Mr Cameron's recent resignation as Great Britain's Prime Minister after a failed BREXIT campaign, the UK Government's approach has obviously been adopted here in Australia by Mr Turnbull and the local government.

At the heart of these events are the political elite toiling with their conscience and the will of the British people who voted against losing their identity and sovereignty to Wall Street, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Union (EU).

With a background in arts and civil law, journalism, merchant banking, venture capitalism and ironically the leader of the Australian Republican Movement, which campaigns for an Australian head of state, his willingness to embrace "corporatocracy" and risking the sovereign powers of Australia are alarming to the majority who are conservative right of the Liberal Party.

Already Mr Turnbull's cunning approach and disregard for Townsville people has come to light. He promised Townsville to be the first "City Deal" to be launched, but going ahead instead to establish an implementation Memorandum of Understanding with Western Sydney. With an estimated personal net worth of $200 million, Mr Turnbull could be described as the most experienced serving politician in Australian neo-imperialism strategy and history.

In the mid 1980s Mr Turnbull won a legal case against the UK Government who wanted to suppress the publication in Australia of the book, "Spycatcher: The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer". The author was Peter Wright a former MI5 agent in the UK. In Mr Turnbull's own book on the trial was this statement about free speech and changing the course of history.

"The fact of the matter is that nothing is achieved in this world, particularly politically, other than with persistence, and persistence involves repetition and it involves argument and re-argument... The public interest in free speech is not just in truthful speech, in correct speech, in fair speech...The interest is in the debate. You see, every person who has ultimately changed the course of history has started off being unpopular." Turnbull's closing submission, 18 Dec 1986)

The further irony of these events in Mr Turnull's history is the fact Mr Wright exposes their ethics, notably their "eleventh commandment", "Thou shalt not get caught" and explains many of MI5's technologies. Mr Wrights' principal motivation for writing the book was to recoup pension income lost when the British government rules his pension un-transferable, which severely reduced his pension. Not dissimilar to the treatment of Australia's ex service personnel and pensioners today by the Turnbull government.

Furthermore, given the recent incursions by State-sponsored hackers from China targeting the CSIRO and the Defence Department's loss of building blueprints at its new facility in Canberra, which still sits vacant today for national security reasons, is a clear threat to civil infrastructure and personal identity.

Moreover, experts say the Internet of Things (IoT) architecture is susceptible to malicious attack and presents a challenging risk in 2016 and 2017 as occurred this year to domain service provider, Dyn.

Global leaders in computer engineering and science, the Barr Group reported;

"IoT devices such as webcams and DVRs were used to launch an attack on domain service provider Dyn. The enormity of this event brings to light the importance of securing all devices capable of connecting to the Internet. Developers cannot control what viruses or malware may try to attack their systems."

Reported also in the Barr Group's 2016 Embedded System Safety and Security Survey, they found that;

"62% of current embedded systems designs are to be connected to the Internet, and 61% of current designs had at least one security-related requirement. As is true with all of today's electronic designs, there is no "One-Size-Fits-All" solution for designing a safe and secure embedded system." (Andrew Gibson, Principal Engineer, Barr Group, 25th Oct 2016)

The treatments for the enormous security and safety risks to embedded devices on an IoT network are very expensive and reliant on human development, intervention and monitoring.

In a regional City the size of Townsville with less than 200,000 people, the resources needed to secure every device embedded on the network to prevent a malicious attack is nearly impossible.

Barr Group's Principal Engineer, Mr Girson made observations about the barriers to a more secure IoT and he said;

"While growth has been outstanding for businesses and innovation, the lack of established guidelines and infrastructure needed to regulate the security of these devices and software has created a globally insecure environment that can be easily abused by those with malicious intent."

And with respect to actually treating the technology developments and costs, he continued his assessment and was none too encouraging of IoT networks because he said;

"Well-designed secure embedded systems within the IoT device increase the likelihood of withstanding aggressive cyber-attacks and tampering. Unfortunately, to develop more secure applications, a significantly greater amount of effort and resources are required. Larger design teams and longer, more aggressive testing requirements are needed, which adds to R&D (research and development) costs and slows time-to-market. Because of the additional resources needed, if a device is not believed to be safety-critical, developers often choose to sacrifice best practises for device security to keep development costs down and speed up time-to-market. As the Dyn attack proves, the choice to not address security in every device impacts not just an individual product, but all products to which it is directly and indirectly connected."

Following is a further assessment of IoT networks being considered in the UK by an independent expert on this technology. Again, why have all leaders not disclosed these risks as part of the Smart Cities Plan and glossy Townsville "City Deal" document?

"Unfortunately, at the moment we are still in the 'Wild West' when attempting to define an IoT architecture. Natural selection (e.g. Betamax vs VHS) will hopefully lead us towards an acceptable solution, but one concern is that, with technology such as Apple's HomeKit, we may end up with a number of competing siloed solutions. Finally, the rush to apply IoT to existing markets is well ahead of our knowledge and understanding of building secure, reliable Things. This could, ultimately, be IoT's Achilles heel. (Niall Cooling, CEO Feabhas)

Make no mistake about it! The purpose of the Turnbull Government's Smart Cities Plan is to implement smart technology to monitor and analyse everything. This includes personal devices, that require conscious or unconscious volunteers to authorise the collection of data properties, stored on the devices.

The data and information is then used and disseminated, in many cases farmed, as a commodity on inadequately secured global communication networks and machines. The likes of which even a professional domain service provider such as Dyn cannot even secure from malicious attack, nor can the most powerful political movement in the world, the Democratic Party of the United States.

Mr Turnbull said he would respect the intelligence of the Australian people, but few could have believed his aim was to exploit identity information for a modern form of commercial and corporate imperialism.

"Smart Cities are the cities of the future. We look forward to working strategically with Townsville City Council to design and integrate connectivity, data and analytics, sensor networks and smartphone applications to transform Townsville." (John Paitaridis, Managing Director, Optus Business, 16th Dec 2016)

As controversial and incomprehensible as this information might be to the people of Townsville, Launceston and Western Sydney, which are the three chosen "City Deal" sites of the Turnbull Government's Smart Cities Plan, ordinary people are being placed on the front line of modern global neo-imperialism policy. This allows Mr Turnbull and his "hacking advisors" to misinform the public about project funding while neutralising the perceptions of the safety and security threats of the Internet of Things on ordinary people.

At least as far as Mayor Hill and Premier Palaszczuk is concerned, the citizens to whom they have sworn to serve and protect, are being exploited while the poverty levels of the city continues to worsen.

The public record demonstrates that the two local leaders, nor their departments, have provided a formal submission to the consultation process of Smart Cities. The public record is absent of their input. Why? Is this another cover up strategy?

Further reading:

For a city crying out for jobs in the midst of an opportunity like the “City Deal”, which on the face of it promised massive project funding, and then to not even submit a response to the consultation phase of the Smart Cities Plan, smells of a purposeful "cover up", "PR stunt" and manipulation of public trust. Certainly an insurance plan when the inevitable hack, breach or scandal occurs around the Smart Cities plan, a plea of ignorance is the best defence. Further evidence of the smoking gun in the hands of the Turnbull Trio.

This tactic and communication strategy has continued in the announcement in the Townsville Bulletin pertaining to the new stadium designs, while also announcing that funding is withdrawn for the hall and art gallery in the same breath. A purposeful diversion and cover up.

It is highly probable the "Turnbull Trio" of Mayor Hill, Premier Palaszczuk and PM Turnbull have acquiesced to their sworn duty of protecting the people under the current weight of systematic hacking of personal, corporate and even sovereign property.

It seems the manipulation of the truth and the "dumbing down" of people's rights is a favourable cost analysis in the pursuit of a global ideology and economic utopia controlled by corporatocracies such as IBM, Google, Facebook, Intel and Singapore Telecommunications and Optus, under the stewardship of PM Turnbull and Mr Trump. In the opinion of former PM Mr Keating, PM Turnbull is "brilliant, utterly fearless, but he had no judgement".

As we move very rapidly from the current "Information Age" to the "Machine Age" of artificial intelligence and robotics, the value of ordinary people and their democratic rights are being "hacked" and their intelligence disrespected.

What's even more frightening is the corporations or states with infinite intelligence and ultimate power, can initiate a cyber security hack of democratic systems to further erode the relevance and freedoms of the people to change governments.

This is manifesting in the political "cover ups" and "PR stunts" witnessed this week in the Townsville City Council projects media launches, and in the cyber hacking of machines and devices at a government and corporate level, that are now all being connected under the Turnbull Trio’s Smart Cities Plan network.

In light of the economic activity in Townsville and the short term structural risks under the Smart City Plan, including poor political decisions to direct infrastructure funding, real estate investors are encouraged to do diligent research on a street by street basis.

As the city's core economy functions mostly on defence, education, government administration and real estate and property, additional caution should be observed by investors. What's more is that experts anticipate that the machine economy will reduce costs of real estate, agriculture, all repetative tasks, to the point profit opportunities for investors will be eliminated. Manufacturing, transporting, building and selling of houses, and the entire supply chain, will be outsourced by machines, substantially reducing the value of housing investment while directing value add into the capitalists owners of the network.

Especially as the release of economic analysis by nations world-wide is showing that up to 50 percent of current jobs will be abolished due to the implementation of smart technologies. These losses will be partly off set by new jobs being created in the technology and cyber-demographic industries.

But the poor internet speeds in the majority of Townsville suburbs due to PM Turnbull's decision to maintain copper to the node instead of fibre as Communications Minister under the Abbott government. Online enterprise and job creation in regional cities without the speed capacity will be limited to low end business to consumer (B2C) activities not business to business (B2B) or machine 2 machine (M2M) enterprises.

This is likely to cause the majority of Townsville's economy to become dependent on "machine welfare". The concept has already been trialed in Canada, Denmark, France and Sweden. In these economies, displaced workers who are subjected to long term unemployment are offered ongoing welfare payments as a proportion of the productivity generated by robots and artificial intelligence.

Where the "machine" is at the centre of commercial and political interests (hacking communications), and the leadership already has license to manipulate public opinion, proper disclosure of the opportunities and risks of a modern economic platform requires meaningful and honest communication. This is specific to a regional economy the size and industrial mix of Townsville as the most responsible and ethical approach.

Instead such behaviour presents a niche for political parties such as One Nation and extreme right wing military and terrorist interests to flourish and even threaten the peace and freedom of Australia and the entire world.

Unfortunately, the unemployment trend for regional Australia is set to increase substantially and local business leaders will continue to lose confidence due to the fact they have redundant capabilities to treat or solve "new-world" problems. Just like a junk yard of industrial equipment like steam powered engines rusting and rotting to nothingness.

The "wild west" frontier is a new power duopoly of global neo-imperialism and cyber-demography thirsting on infinite intelligence and the component parts of consumer and institutional information and data, the value of which includes manipulating access to power and control of money, resources and the network that carries the pay loads.

The Roman Catholic Pope Francis, commented last Sunday that the gods of money are responsible for the rise of ISIS and religious extremism across the world because it has marginalised people to take disparate measures to survive. This includes Christian and Muslim followers.

It is a world where a new indigenous culture is emerging, valued for profitable exploitation while the real danger of personal and sovereign security is being masked and covered up by self-righteous leaders.

Masters of the banking system have toiled over the exploitation of ordinary people since the end of World War One, and the same philosophies and ideologies are being applied to the information age today.

Victoria Grant, a 12 year old Canadian girl, explains so eloquently the system of debt. She has inspired a small community, like Townsville, to take charge of their own future instead of relying on elite billionaires and imperialistic politicians.

The legacy of the Smart Cities Plan is likely to be catastrophic to regional Australia, just as the people of the world have been enslaved to the banks because of people's dependence on money. Then the people knew no better. Has anything changed? The Turnbull Trio intend, short term ignorance for a favourable personal political legacy.

We are on the verge of history repeating itself, the political leadership of Australia have a golden opportunity to involve ordinary people at the beginning of the next technology boom. Structuring share ownership of local entities, establishing cultural events around new technologies, and integrating education and skills training would be a more responsible approach. 

Establishing licensing and royalty rights on personal and property data, this practically puts the intelligence of people at the centre of the smart cities model as the owners of the network and therefore the rightful beneficiaries, unlike the current Turnbull approach. As the "machine age" will have a life cycle over a millennium, a neo-imperial solution of old is simply catastrophic.

Instead our leaders are exploiting personal data and devices, playing straight into the hands of Google, IBM, Intel and Facebook being the most powerful imperial players in the free market world. What about the people power, people's intelligence, and personal information being at the centre of PM Turnbull's ousting of Mr Abbott for the liberal leadership, "respecting the intelligence of the people"?

We have seen again this week further out flow of economic activity being: the tier 1 contract on the stadium project going to outside corporations; the large coal project of $1 billion funding deal struck with the Indian Adarni corporation; and Optus winning $20 million deal with Townsville City Council.

The Turnbull Trio smart cities model is sucking the life blood out of regional Australia, and the best way to appease the people is to manipulate funding programs, apply the imperial corporatocracy approach of PR stunts and cover ups. When will the mainstream media, our own journalists, stand up and help the people protect their God given right to peace, security and freedom for the Millennia to come? 

Perhaps this article will prompt the people to seek more accountability and explanations from its leaders about smart economic policy decisions. The behavioural nuances of desperate politicians manipulating the truth is evident, and money, profits and digital resources and technology is driving the viability, prosperity, freedom and even peace of the world.
