Ten years ago I wrote on my personal travel blog, “Australia sucks”. In it I detailed, “Australia seems to have more rules than any other country on the planet I have visited. There are signs outlining rules everywhere. I was even on a street that had a street-sign denoting that particular street as being an alcohol-free street. No alcohol is allowed to be consumed or even carried on that street?? I presume that even includes inside the houses on that street by the way it was written!”
I haven’t been back to Australia for years for this exact reason. It is one of the most oppressive countries in the world.
So, it actually comes as no surprise to hear that the Australian government is considering putting tiny identification chips in its $100 bills to track them and to stop people from avoiding extortion and “pensioners hoarding the money”.
