Australia is a constitutional monarchy which was created by The Majority of Electors of 1900. They created The Governor-General as Head of State and The Queen as Sovereign.


200 years ago Napoleon’s master, Prince Talleyrand, said, “There is someone more intelligent than Voltaire, more powerful than the emperor–and that is the people.”

100 years later in 1900, this became true in Australia. Today, in 2008, it is still one of the enduring truths of our Commonwealth.

The Majority of Electors was the original power in 1900 that created The Constitution and is still, in 2008, the only power in Australia that can change The Constitution.

In contrast to other political realities like in Iraq, Afganistan, Zimbabwe or Fiji or even the Vatican, the USA, India and China, the fact is that the Electors of Australia have been able to hold, without interruption, the ultimate constitutional power in Australia for over a hundred years!

This continuous record of peoplepower and political stability is unprecedented in modern world history.

Australia is the name given to an agreement between The Majority of Electors of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, Tasmania, and Western Australia to unite in one federation under the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia.


So who really created what we now know as ‘Australia’?

  1. People need to be educated as well. Lack of education = poverty = misery = attitudes which are easily manipulated = lack of thought.
    This problem is in growing economies where the rich get richer and the poor are poorer. Poverty demands recognition either through crime or broad hints at a lack of support. But where does this stop? Families keep growing and if families have 6-7 mouths feed on an average, it breeds a nation of discontented, malnourished and reason starved people.

    Australia is a nation considered very blessed by far!!
