Problem is for AGL and Origin is there is no money in producing
power Their only interest is the "supply fee" even if the grid can't
supply the fee remains
There's no reason why electricity supply should be generating revenue
out of Australians' pockets into the pockets of the foreigners who
own those foreign multinationals.
Of course there is a reason. The LNP et al sold off the electricity
assets and the owners now want to make a profit. That is
capitalism/free-enterprise at work, you're not a marxist are you?
Handing over to private owners natural monopolies, government services
and publicly-owned property is not "capitalism".
They have gone from being a public asset to produce electricity to a
privately owned asset designed to create wealth for it's owners via the
production of electricity .
And precisely that is what pure (18th century) capitalism as envisaged
specially by capitalist conservative libertarians like the Fart is.

I am well aware that marxism and communism attempt to claim to be the
source of the concept of common assets, however that is a complete lie
- common assets long >predate the advent of either of these extremist
Economic theories are just that, they try to put different systems into
difference boxes, nothing to do with whether these systems existed
previously or not.
It is only common sense to regard certain monopoly assets like an large
airport, which is open to masses of public users as a special case of
ownership. In private hands, which are guided only by the unchallengeable
profit motive, they are usually end up to be used to the detriment of
everyone except its owner/s.
Acknowledging this situation has nothing specially particularly Marxist
about it, as most people (the rational ones, that is) from all sorts of
political camps can easily understand the nature and the problems of
monopolcapitalism just as they understand how feudalism used to work in a
The Farts' hatred-fixation on the political left, of course, tries to
reduce all economic and political issues down to blaming Marxism, the
communists and everyone who do not tow his far-right extremist ideology.
The fact is, Australia has never been a Marxist nor a communist country.
It is not even a social democracy. So why the fuck does almost every
single comment posted by the Fart has to end up in whinging and whining
about the horrors of Stalisnism (which is a serious departure from the
original Marxist principles or even that what Lenin was attempting to
Not all what the contemporary political Left and Centre says or does is
based on Marxism. Not all forms of socialism are Marxist like for
instance that version which was advocated by the Fabianists.
I've concluded long ago that there can be no sane discussion on any
subjects with extremist intellectual midgets like the Farts on any
subject as it always ends up in the very same predictable outcome.
