The corporatist state depends on corporatist funding or that new nonsense – public funding.

For start a ban on politic donations from any one other than an individual and even those donations should be limited to personal labour and a small $ figure per annum.

Trade unions, corporations, trade associations, community groups must all be completely banned from making financial or in kind contributions to political parties.

Pollies and poltical hacks can sniff a buck from a distance, if the only source are voters they may start to take some interest in them and we might just return the favour!
