130730 JUST DEFIANCE Australia And The World Must GET REAL About Refugees Edition
Flicked onto The Conversation media pages today, to find a 3 week old article about our Australian borders and refugees, read it, and wrote the following before realizing it was 3 weeks out of date! TYPICAL?!
Well..., I guess it's not out of date, whatwith the polies going gangbusters to win the unwinnable insolvable incurable debate/argument/war of whiteguy plunder and rule of the dying planet.
So, here it is....
Controlling immigration to Australia is a farcical notion, and has been since 1788.
All commentary by politicians is election-spin, while they do not get into a genuine global conversation about the fact that refugees are the future, for some major proportion of the species.
I assert, that the powers-that-be must address the lay of national borders everywhere, but especially those imposed by the 19th century western colonialists.
Borders across all "manufactured" 3rd world regions [manufactured by the same aloof elites] were set-out as "economic exclusion zones" so each Brit/European monarchy could divide the spoils of their ruthless invasions and plundering.
The current exit of "refugees" and "asylum-seekers" from those war-torn regions to our shores are the result of those foolish 19thC imposed-borders decisions.
While the 1st world cannot contain it's maximum-consumption cultures, they/we will ever be trying to capture resources and territories and even the people from militarily weaker regions - Africa, Asia, Aboriginal Australia, Et Al.
So, we will never "stop the boats" permanently, mainly because we are relatively so under-populated.
The whole world needs to address this, and the growing insatiable culture out of the modern west, so-as to reduce impoverishment and civil strife in all corners of the globe, and the hunger for both more peaceful places to live, and for satiation of desires that drive people to the unsustainable west.
For ourselves, we all need a reality check, and get scientific about economics, which is, bottom-line, how we relate and disperse ourselves on the resources, that is shock horror, on the real estate, er, the land.
Arguments exist about the continent being only capable of supporting as little as 12 millions people.
As we currently excess in lifestyle, yes.
Were we truly intelligent, economically, we would distribute ourselves properly, and share the load and burden far far better, thus enabling an indeterminate population to occupy sustainably, indefinitely.
There is only one industry we need to remove from the economic equation to permanently and peaceably solve this...
