Prime Minister, Tony Abbott has committed Australian forces back to Iraq to help the US-led coalition against ‘ISIS extremists’ in the region, following a number of counter-terrorism raids and supposed foiled beheading plots over the past month in Australia. As a result, the government has now passed a new amendment to combat domestic threats at home – with two more legislative pieces expected to pass by the end of the year.

In the following feature piece, Ethan Nash takes an in-depth look at all three stages of anti-terror legislation, and analyses how media and government authorities have manipulated public perception and capitalised on pre-conceived fears to pass Draconian-type laws, erode our personal freedoms in unprecedented fashion, and set the catalyst for an Orwellian society to subtlety expand within our very backyard.
