OT: Human Rights Framework 2-May-2010 At 6:54:47 PM zumojugo
Hmm, nobody pulled out the line about rights coming with responsibilities did they? What it boils down to is:
1) People are afraid of foreginers because they are different.
2) People come to a country for many reasons. People are more accepting of those that come for humanitarian reasons than those that come for economic reasons. Are you telling me that if you were living in poverty and you could go to another country where hard work might improve your life and the life of your family you wouldn't go?
3) Once you get to your new country and discover that people aren't always very nice to you because you look funny and talk funny, wouldn't you look for people who treat you as an equal? Or do you expect them to just keep taking the shit and struggle to be like you Hendo?
4) Is a homogenous culture such a good thing? If that's what you want go to almost any small town in Australia that's far from one of the capital cities and stay there. Everyone is the same, nobody has to think, a beautiful, blissful redneck wonderland with plenty of "us" and very few of "them".
5) OR, stop worrying about immigration, enjoy the fact that it is a sign of economic prosperity, enjoy the fact that they are bringing great ideas and different culture and get in amongst the wonderful mix of different people. Look at your family tree and see the mix in that. Who cares if "they" outnumber "us", go and live in Bali, I think you'll find there that there are plenty of people just like you treating the locals just like shit.
6) In case you haven't got enough to rant about yet, just remeber: There can never be justice on stolen land!
