To some degree, yes. It's unfortunate that the people who are most affected by these laws know the least about them. In theory the system should work by the people voting in representatives who will in turn vote to the interests of those they represent. But the reality is that big business, voting constituents, inner house or senate deals, etc... largely control the voting of those who represent the people. As time passes i'm finding it more difficult to trust that the federal government has my best interest at heart.

I try to stay optimistic though.
