The national Minister for Cities 'n' stuff has amended his Twitter bumf to say "ease congestion" instead of the manic verbitulisation ""bust". If this is not a blatant "public affairs" violation of my rights, he should tell me so, with audit trail on his sites.
The Berejiklian Government has changed elevations at the Rozelle interchange off the WestConnex after I pointed to the absurdity of taking a complex underground tunnel complex onto an elevated bridge within 1 km - leaving the impression of another "public affairs" breach and the stupidity of suffocating flows through an engineering design mistake. The same problems are happening in the Metro system, pointing to a lack of leadership and skills in the centre.
Australia, NSW and Sydney have a new style of governance that dumps the Conservatives’ pride in sound financial management and creates a veneer of populist politics to conceal lobbyists’ demands and favours - a cancer that is metastasising through all organs of State.
It uses secrecy, not releasing “Cabinet” documents of technical character and redacting 100% of key data in so-called “business cases”. They threaten opponents and even insiders who dare to ask “why”, and pretend to care when their sloppy “decisions” produce revelations of stupidity and waste, and of the wanton demolition of heritage buildings, homes or tree stands.
They appoint their acolytes to all advisory posts and filter-out extraneous criticisms and opinions to the extent they routinely assign such email addresses to banned and trash lists – as though that achieves anything outside of calming insecure cadres’ egos. They similarly devalue outsiders’ Intellectual Property and steal it without visible moral qualms.
Gerry Gleeson was so right in his Spann Oration in 2010: inexperienced personal staffs and politicians without quality life experiences help to suppress innovation and problem-solving where they are outside inept lobbyists’ parameters. Indeed, governments no longer have in-built blunder-checking and expert response/repair capabilities – redoubling their own pain. He said ministers no longer have access to skilled management structures and must use consultants - but I add they steal others' ideas when the ministers are in deserved trouble.
The psychology has been called "groupthink" a silo mentality that leads to the loss of sense of reality; but the cruelty that the Impalers has shown towards communities and me, at they expense of economic and welfare outcomes, points to something more sinister.
Dunning-Kruger covers those who are too stupid to know they are stupid; and Aristotlean hubris the narcissists who love hurting even more than winning.
I have dubbed the new style “Bairdijiklian Malenomics”.
Malenomics" is a zone where the proper principles of economics are discarded and the power elite's meritocracy imposes hidden tests which bear no relationship to economic, social and environmental improvement parameters as developed, for example, by Sir Rod Eddington in London and Melbourne. Malenomic tests correlate with the hidden world of HK long-term, intra-corporate manoeuvrings and multi-layered non-decisionmaking cultures. www.sydneybetrayals.me contains more on this theme.
Plagiarism is unacceptable in academic, educational, journalistic, technical and political arenas. No previous generation of politicians and public servants transgressed on any large scale or with profligacy. The Baird/Berejiklian and Turnbull/Morrison Governments, all led by former bankers, have broken with the traditions of Menzies and Howard, to mention just eminents. Their acts have transgressed accepted standards of behaviours. They are being brought to account through political and moral suasion by a much-maligned historian and futurist.
Journalistic and scholastic professions have seen serious plagiarism cases. The Daily Mail has been involved in famous cases; while a News Ltd's The Australian journalist listened to three story ideas from me, said they were not "news", then ran all three, separately, later. He refused then and since to respond to me but served in a political role and was assumed to be biassed
There have been many allegations of plagiarisms in journalistic, school and university, history and science, politics and religious circles. Different are ego battles such as between Bradfield and Sir Ralph Freeman over the design of the Sydney Harbour Bridge; and the more serious contract and artist’s rights allegations over designs of the post-Utzon Opera House and National Gallery entrance re-design contracts.
In 2015 UrbanGrowth tried to steal my Goanna Bridge but I stopped them and the executive was sacked. Their (unsuccessful) "design competition" had stated that all IP in submissions would be ceded to the agency; at a time that JV guidelines by Premiers and Treasury said that IP would be fully respected. That agency is now within Berejiklian's "WA Kremlin Inc" cluster of private developer relationships - planning as well as implementation in GSC (Chief Commissioner Lucy Turnbull being a public advocate of Berejiklian's causes), land dealings, projects, and rule-setting.
The Oxford Dictionary holds plagiarism to be the use of another person's ideas or work and pretend that it is your own. The USA’s (Health) Office of Research Integrity considers plagiarism to include both the theft or misappropriation of intellectual property and the substantial unattributed textual copying of another's work. It includes the unauthorised use of ideas or unique methods obtained by a privileged communication, such as a grant or manuscript review.
The Copyright Act protects original ideas and work that has value in implementation. Generally the protection is for 50 years.
Public affairs and politics, transport economics and urban regional planning, and even sloppy politicians’ “plans”, are the topics here. There are dimension of “value” in all:
Governments pay millions for such advices including in UK and Australian election campaigns (such as to Cosby Textor). Advice on savings on a transport project contained within a copyrighted document deserves to be paid a share of the “hundreds of millions” so saved (Berejiklian stealing my Bankstown "Case to Pause"). The reputation of an agency like the Greater Sydney Commission which is chaired by the former Prime Ministers wife, facing fierce profession criticism by the State’s top expert, was “protected” by Federal documents which were smokescreens – at such a gross level of deceit (“30 Minute City” and “Three Cities”) that national political and journalistic reputations are at stake - thus organising "defence" by illegally using a "privileged document".
Example of Sequence
So this is another example of Berejiklian slyly stealing my IP just as she did on the Parra-Epping Link and Bankstown Metro five economy measures, saving hundreds of millions of dollars.
The following table shows the specifics and seeks compensation as well as the same fate as in UrbanGrowth - public disgrace and sacking.
Valuation of IP is similar to valuing real estate - the record of recent comparators. The scale of payments to consultants has changed since 2008. The above numbers are matters of record – and it is important to note that the $77 million and $80 million produced no value, while the $100 million is obscene.
These numbers do not include, as an example, KPMG's molded reports on pro-council amalgamations (since 1998).
The Bairdijiklian Malenomics model has produced the greatest waste and greatest mis-use of consultants in history.
The plagiarisms have been on a grand scale as established by Berejiklian and Turnbull (disposition follows) and with many smaller ones (sample here):
The greatest benefit from my work if the PM and Treasurer would but listen is the redesign and massaging of the WS City Deal which is a deadly mistake by the Turnbull Mad Hatter’s party.
All of these matters have professional and national value. The money amounts are valued in accordance with the previous notes. Additional cases will be added as necessary.
