I'm not going to spend time explaining Australian capitalism or how it adversely affects the ordinary working person; this is something that most people involved in some form of "alternative politics" already seem to understand. But what is lacking is a proper theoretical understanding of the role that identity, or social group-based, politics actually plays within capitalism.
Australian capitalism uses division to maintain itself. It tries very hard to split us into opposing groups based on gender, ethnicity, sexuality, etc. It attempts division at every level, separating states and regions with football matches, and even individuals on the basis of mundane arguments such as whether Ford or Holden is better. More recently the Howard Liberal government has engaged in a campaign of division focused on welfare recipients somewhat reminiscent of the Nazi Party's propaganda war on Jewish people during the '30s.
