Hi, my name is Ben Rushton and I am very pleased to say that I have been selected to be a Flux Candidate in the NSW State Election on 23rd March.

Do you ever feel politics could serve society better?
Trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Stuck in a loop wishing ‘If only politicians kept their promises. If only politicians were more consultative.'

Flux will bring a model of democracy (issue-based direct democracy) to the people of NSW.

I.B.D.D is optimised for:
1. Conjecture - anyone can suggest legislation
2. Criticism - anyone can vote on any legislation
3. Specialisation – Currently, a politician that doesn't know the ins-and-outs of a particular issue will vote along party lines without consulting you. Why not ask people with expertise in that particular area?

With I.B.D.D. the opportunity cost of voting will allow people to weigh up different conjectures and criticisms, drawing people to abstain from areas they aren't knowledgable in so that they can vote in (specialise in) the areas they are interested in.

You don't have to worry about me, my taste in music, or my views on a particular issue. All you need to know is that I believe in issue-based direct democracy.
Having observed politics since my teens, I was drawn to Flux because I was tired of the current system - trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
I'm not getting into politics. I'm getting into changing politics.
I look forward to working with all of NSW to bring them a voice all of the time.

If you could spare $5-$10 that will go a long way to helping my campaign.
As you can imagine, with our principles and mission, big companies have no incentive to fund us.

The money that you donate will help me to promote the ideas of Flux, it will help me in running a Facebook campaign, it will help pay for flyers and my nomination fees.
I appreciate any money that you can give - it will all make a difference.


Another great way to stay in touch is to sign up for updates at the Flux website

We believe in democracy.

Our mission is the distribution of real political power to include all Australians.
We are a movement of political expression, not political ideology. We value the contribution of every Australian, no matter how great or small. We believe in a system which promotes autonomy, purpose, and expertise, as means to deliver excellent policy.
We seek to dismantle political apathy, by empowering the disenfranchised, and motivating a new generation of innovative Australians to take responsibility for their society.

This is our time

Flux has a real shot at electing a Legislative Council (Upper House) candidate at the March 2019 NSW state election.

But we need your help.

On a shoestring budget, we can make a difference.

We are not like the major parties who have a long line of donors, keen to have their say in what they do. We run on micro donations from supporters like you to deliver our goal.


This campaign aims to raise $50,000. If every Flux member gave $50, this fundraising campaign could close today.

When you give, you can be sure every dollar goes towards getting Flux into the NSW parliament.

Our campaign budget is below:


Candidate Nomination Fees$5,000
Facebook ads$15,254
How-to-vote cards$763
Newspaper ads$7,627
Radio ads$7,627


We look forward to working with everyone across NSW to make this happen.


Interested in specifically sponsoring a candidate nomination fee?

Check out our campaign here. If 15 people give $334 each, our nomination fees are done and dusted.

Would you like to set up a recurring donation?
You can set up a monthly direct debit over at our Patreon page. Please note that support offered via Patreon will be used across the whole Flux organisation, not just NSW: 

Want to give in other ways than money?

Here are 3 quick suggestions:

1. Sign up for updates on the Flux website.


2. Join our Facebook page -

And Invite your Facebook friends.

Remember, no amount of help in whatever form is too small.

With your help we can deliver democracy into everyone’s hands.
