Australian Bureau of Statistics sells YOUR data for $41 million


Tomorrow, 9th day of August 2016, ALL Australians are urged to fill in the census.

The government has even gone on a propaganda binge on television advertisements in order for people to comply.

Scare tactics are used that  fines of $180 per day will be implemented for each and every day the census forms are not returned.

Scare tactics are used that if false information is being given then fines will apply.

What 'fines' apply to the ABS (a West Australian business) if it gives false information to the people?

What fines apply when your privacy has been breached?

None of the major Rupert Murdoch publishing businesses  have cleared this up.

Are they not allowed to?

Do they only publish information in order for people to follow blind subservience without publishing ALL the details?

Well, what the Murdoch media outlet did publish is that last year the ABS sold information for $41,000,000.

Make no mistake about it, 'your' data is a commodity that corporations acquire and sell.

So,

  • How can you trust the ABS with your private and confidential information?
You cannot - The heads of the ABS discussed plans to cross match Aussie's private info - in SECRET.

  • How can you trust that their data retention is secure?
The ABS cannot even have a simple (from an IT perspective) secure website that retains your data.

  • What lawfully enacted laws (read Acts) are there for you to comply with filling out the census form?
None.

  • What lawfully enacted laws are there that allow the business ABS to 'fine' you?
None.

The ABS has lied (read provided false information) to people with regards to its operation it cannot and should not be trusted with your "PRIVATE and CONFIDENTIAL" data. 

Another (Australian government?) business committing fraud at the expense of the general populous.

CENSUS OF THE SHEEPLE (WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON THE ‘CON’ IN ‘CONCENSUS’) BREACHES PUBLIC TRUST AND PRIVATE CONFIDENTIALITY

The unprecedented historic jettisoning of confidentiality in the quinquennial gathering of population-data is concerning not least because of the modus operandi of its implementation, which betrays high disdain, not just for the ‘sheeple’ being ‘questionaired’, but even for the traditional roles of the very office-holders doing the ‘questionairing’:

What? Don’t they believe in the principles of representation that they incarnate anymore? Or have those principles changed, and if so, what are they representing, and why don’t they deign tell us?

At risk of summons to answer these questions would be Federal Minister for the Census, Michael McCormack (of small business), Australian Bureau of Statistics head, David Kalisch, the chief of the Census itself, Duncan Young, and I suppose, the whole of Government whose silence has implied an ungainly and incompetent consent…

Unbelievably, only now, with 12 hours remaining to deadline, has the retarded media joined in the discussion of the issue of confidentiality, unprecedented in all previous quiquenniums going back to Federation, and which I only learned about by chance, because I decided to stay up past my reading time last night (to watch “Lateline”, ABC news, current affairs) … in other words, I would have been duped into handing my details over to ABS for them to do as they see fit, without any of the usual safeguards attendant upon such elicitations of trust, and none the wiser ...

Background television noise during the daytime had provided a hint that Senator Xenophon, of South Australia, had issues with the Census, but now I watched Lateline presenter Emma Alberici lay it all out in front of me;

In brief, not only would the data submitted be kept past its usual expiry date (at which point it was traditionally destroyed), but now it would be transformed into suspicious code, presumably to disguise the vital datum, but mainly in order to hoard them indefinitely …

It has been speculated that these changes are in line with the privatization of everything in sight (including vital data of this sort), and the ill-advised attempt to run government, including the ABS, along business lines …

That’s bad enough. But this unprecedented hoarding and encroaching smacks of something worser and darker than idiot-advisor public policy-making (one doubts that it can be called “public” since they proceed in the manner that they do).

The normative responses given by the suspect parties in answer to the raucous raised by a handful of public figures amount to what Senator Nick Xenophon has correctly dubbed “disingenuous” (lies).

The breach of public trust and private confidentiality that they seek to cover-up is in line with trends set by the US National Security Agency, and other imitators, to intervene and store the public communication records of private individual persons.

The failure of establishment politicians to stand up and support principles which they are otherwise supposed to embody, is indicative of a posture which Xenophon, once more, has dubbed ‘undignified and disrespectful’, but which I call high disdain for the public. These attitudes make little or no effort to disguise more of the same hands-down arrogance from the Liberal government that we remember from Abbott and Hockey …

What the surreptitious circumstances of this Census reveal is that whatever these public officials represent, it is not the interest of the individual members of even the electorates that have voted for them … and this in turn is revelatory of a general pattern of the times which bodes no good …

Equity prevails. The census is an offer. If you are a resident or a citizen (see slave) fill it in. If you are a living man or woman you cannot be forced to contract with this corporation against your consent. No consent =no contract.If it was an anominous it would not be a problem. But what if they use the information against you in a court.? Under common law you can not be forced to incriminate yourself.Corporate Australia requires your consent or they are acting in ultra vires.(beyond the power of a corporation). You should be paid to fill it in. Under International law of the Forced labour convention1930 section 29. You cannot be forced or compelled to perform unpaid involuntary performance ��
