The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Asylum seekers homeless in Indonesia

Outside the immigration detention centre in Kalideres, West Jakarta, 400 or so asylum seekers are living on the street, tightly wedged between a dirt footpath and the heavy passing traffic. Families mark out the space they now call home, crowded on thin rubber mats. Tropical sun beats down through listless days. Meals are infrequent, the exhaust fumes are thick …

    Rob Halton attacks the asylum seekers for their misfortune to have lived in a county that was invaded illegally by America, along with the so called Coalition of the Willing.

    The Coalition of the Willing carried out an illegal war on the Middle East and destroyed its way of life and their countries to secure control over oil and the preservation of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

    To say that the Yanks and the Aussies, with British and European forces, have spend billions both militarily and socially only to find that lives are lost in this endless and impossible struggle to bring any form of stable government to these regions, is a gross misunderstanding of reality. The Coalition of the Willing has created mass migration and terrorism by illegal invasions. It created the problem and it refuses to except the responsibility for doing so.

    Australia was a land of opportunities, and it still is if you are one of the few who can exploit low wages. This has become the norm for the working class.

    Neoliberalism by the LibLabs has been the driving force that has taken away the once utopian outlook for the citizens of Australia, and replaced it with the worse form of capitalism.

    The Great South Land continues to defend its borders from a few boat people as a political strategy, but at the same time floods the Great South Land with work visas and migration.

    The Coalition bangs on about multiculturalism and refugees, but it has still brought in many more people than Labor. One reason for what is considered mass migration is the fact that it has been used as a union breaker and cheap labour.

    The present refugee problem is only a drop in the bucket when compared with what is to come. Bangladesh has a population of 164.552 Million. In Bangladesh, 40% of productive land is projected to be lost in the southern region of Bangladesh for a 65 cm sea level rise by the 2080s. About 20 million people in the coastal areas of Bangladesh are already affected by salinity in drinking water. Pacific Islands, Miami, deltas and low land are under threat right now.

    Morrison, our buffoon excuse for a leader, prances around with a bit of coal and refuses to believe in climate change, yet he is still mad enough to think we can continue down the path of Armageddon by burning fossil fuels.

    If you’re rich, and a foreign nanny or related to one of the Saudi elite or a soccer player, you’ll be looked after pretty quick smart, though.

    In an already and overwhelmingly overpopulated globe, corrupt governments governed by tribal / religious local clansmen dictate everyday life in Australia and the USA, as prime examples.

    Unfortunately that is were it stops for those being lured to the great South land the land of opportunity and freedom which no longer can afford to keep its borders free for the endless lines of global asylum seekers!

    In an already and overwhelmingly over populated globe corrupt governments governed by tribal / religious local clansmen dictate every day life in Kabul as an example, the Yanks and the Aussies with Britt /European forces have spend billions both militarily and socially only to find lives are lost in this endless and impossible struggle to bring any form of stable government to these regions.

    Unfortunately all the best efforts for Australia to be seen as one of the few countries of opportunity left on the globe the realisation is we have to restrict who comes here as we have seen recently it is within the best interests of our nation to be cautious and protect our borders, restrict entry as there is no need to unnecessarily strike into a period of discourse of compassionate multiculturism on a grand scale anymore.

    The Great South Land needs those who are already here to continue to defend its borders to continue to achieve a peaceful and sustainable population of around 25/26 Million souls as I am sure the likes of PM Morrison has in mind.

    A Phelps(Independent) influenced Shorten government is exactly what we should not want to lead beyond the 2018 federal election. re immigration to further multicultural illusion.
