Australia: Good News on Pension
Bad News: Not Good Enough.
Allan Ivarsson reports… Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced to Television Nine Network that the retirement age for the Pension would be locked into 67 years of age. The Liberal Party has been pushing for years to delay payment of the Pension until 70 years of age, which is a disgraceful objective. This Liberal Party bully obsession was supported by Malcolm Turnbull.
Scott Morrison words reported by MSN NEWS… (i)
“Next week, cabinet will be ratifying a decision to reverse taking the pension – the retirement age – to 70. It will remain at 67.” (i)
“I don’t think we need that measure any longer when it comes to raising the pension age, and that’s one of the things I’ll be changing pretty quickly.” (i)
“I’ve been talking to my colleagues about it, we’ll ratify it next week, the pension age going to 70 is gone.” (i)
Allan Ivarsson comments…
The Labor Party approved the Pension Age to be moved up to 67 years but refused to allow it to be moved up to 70 years of age.
One thought that flashed through my mind… is Scott Morrison thinking like Mikhail Gorbachev, a man who supported the party machine, even though he disagreed with its thinking and when he seized power moved to dismantle gradually some of its wrong ideas and policy commitments?
Morrison’s decision on the Pension may help him win the next election. Every person, young and old I spoke to over the last few weeks, were not impressed by the Liberal Party objective to deny retirees the right to receive the Pension until years later after 65 years.
As founder of ‘Cosmic Libertarianism’ the very strict guideline policy on eligible Pension Age still stands at 65 years of age, in every Nation on Planet Earth.
And ‘Cosmicism’ the way of ‘Blue Light Cosmic Philosophy’ the way of ‘Cosmic Libertarianism’ will not ever allow the Pension Age to be denied to people in their sixty fifth year of life on cosmic policy records. Hence, the essential battle for reducing the Pension Age back to 65 years of age shall continue recorded in ‘Cosmic Philosophy History Books’.
Thus, the battle of ‘Cosmic Libertarianism’ standard freedom values shall continue until the entire world lives 100% ‘Free’ supported by essential ‘Quality of Life’ Altruistic Standards.
There is no place for ‘Political Correctness’ or any form of ‘Blasphemy Law’ in a truly freedom valued society.
I shall be watching Scott Morrison Policy and thinking. If he gets it right, I will tick ‘Like’. If he gets it wrong, I will criticise and tick ‘Don’t Like’.
The Liberal Party and the Labor Party and the Greens in Australia need to lift their game above the now below fifty percent performance they have all been delivering since 2007.
Using Ahimsa Methods, I will not give any quarter to wrong thinking and behaviour.
I am a professional in Philosophy and Class ‘A’ Project Management and will not accept any less than best results.
We Aussies must go all out to save Australia’s Heritage Character and return our living standards and freedom values to become once more “The Lucky Country”.
Anything less is not acceptable.
Did you know?
Scott Morrison is the son of a Policeman. And Allan Ivarsson is the son of a Policeman.
It will be interesting to see how the belief system thinking of these two sons of coppers compares in the years ahead.

My Father served until retirement in the Sydney Water Police, Flood Rescue and Rescue Squad. His mates called him ‘Swanny’ since the 1950’s. He led many Rescue Operations in NSW Floods. He almost lost his life several times. Some of his mates died in flood rescue operations.

My father raised me to be tough, respectful, courteous and chivalrous and taught me true to old school teaching, always shake a man’s hand with a firm grip. Limp handshakes is a sign of character weakness.
When I was 18 years of age, I went out with my father and other Water Policemen on one of those flood training courses leaving Sydney Harbour up the Parramatta River, the main tributary of Sydney Harbour. At the end of the day, we returned to Water Police Headquarters on Sydney Harbour. For me it was a great adventure.
