I have to agree with this. Too many people still stick to the old adage "you get what you pay for", and are wary of free things.

Plus I have a large suspicion that there is some sort of kickback for professors enforcing textbook requirements. It might be a bit of a conspiracy theory, but it all fits together too well...

Things here in Australia are rarely put to the people, as the pollies don't want the unwashed masses disturbing their plans.

Instead there is the concept of a 'mandate', ie. a party is voted in, and can do whatever the hell it wants, until they get voted out.

Politics here is far less robust than in the USA. We have the massive paradox of compulsory voting, and astounding voter apathy.
