I used to be ashamed to be an Australian. Now, I am ashamed to be a human. How can one group of people hate another group so much as to go out and kill them? The sooner that Homo Sapiens becomes extinct (and we are working on that in a number of ways) the better off this planet will be.
Quite easily. When you are born and raised to believe in a diety, and that anyone who doesn't believe in your particular diety is an infidel/bound for eternal damnation/stuck in a career with PN (Depending on your view as to which is worse), it's easy to see why religion has caused more problems than it has ever solved.
Fundamentally, we are no different to a group of animals. You have a pride of lions, or whatever moniker you fancy, but the weaker ones are constantly getting picked off by other animals, or their own in some cases. We have rules to try to prevent that, but even in nature, that doesn't always work.
I don't agree with old mates methods, but to a certain extent I do agree with his ideology. IMHO multiculturalism, like communism, is great in theory but it does not work in this day and age. In days gone by, immigrants integrated into Australian culture because they had
to. They were greatful to the Australian people for providing a safe haven and a land of opportunity they wouldn't have got elsewhere after WWII.
Now, with modern technology, various special-interest groups and the do-gooders, that doesn't happen as much, and you have the outspoken ones among them demanding things like Sharia Law be implemented in Australia, or "Muslim-only" times at the local pool, which does nothing but further antagonise intolerant Australian's. Modern tech and 'instant news' has further given these idiots a platform from which they can spout their nonsense.
The Australian way of life as I've
known it has been gradually eroded by do-gooders and the PC-brigade to the point you can't call a spade a spade, rather, it is to be known as a handy-single-handled-digging-implement. People like Ol' Mate in Christchurch take this to the extreme in a (futile) attempt to restore things to the way they were, never realising that will never happen.
