We look beyond individual ethics to explore the role of various positions in society and how these different positions shape the worldview of those who hold them. We mainly focus on the role of landlords, or as they are now known in Victoria, “rental providers”. We also cover the roles of the police, military and the employing class.

We finish the show by discussing our recent trip to Queensland and Trump supporters, cancel culture, Monopoly and the catchphrase for the pandemic.

We discuss violence and the state, as well as bringing you some speeches from the Invasion Day rally in Melbourne โ€“ Kulin Nations.

One thing we didnโ€™t do was define the state but what we are talking about there is not just the government but also the police, prison system, court system etc. We discuss the broader definition of violence in the context of family violence and whether or not it can be applied to the state generally and prisons specifically.

The speeches we play from Invasion Day are by Greens politician Lidia Thorpe and historian Gary Foley. This audio is from 3CR Community Radio and you can listen to the full rally via the 3CR website.
