I’m annoyed by the illogical and racist emails that I receive from friends whose parents or grandparents came here as so called economic migrants or refugees. Ever since people like Pauline Hanson have come on the scene I’ve seen a change in our culture. I’m sure most Australians don’t want to live in a racist country.
Our recent political leaders are too busy fighting egos, within their own parties as well as the opposition’s, to get down and make some inspired choices for the future of Australians. There’s no long term planning because of all the navel-gazing and it’s embarrassing! Australia could be a world leader with the great minds we have in this country, and the freedom to voice ideas, and yet none of this seems to float to the top, where the decisions get made.
It seems as though more and more of us live a life of conformity and order, and few now life a live of ‘being wild’; of throwing caution to the wind; of taking a chance to follow their dream; to embark on an adventure. What is this doing to our evolution as a species? Where will humanity be in a hundred, a thousand years if we give up ‘being wild’ because our fears prevent us foresaking the safe places?
About one in twenty Australians live overseas at any given time – among the highest ratios of expatriates to residents of any country in the world. Why do so many of us leave? How do we relate to the people and places and culture we leave behind? And why do we come back? Since becoming an expat myself (one of the 200,000 Australians in London) I’ve often imagined that our wanderlust says something about our national psyche. But what?
Similar wars, Dictatorships Governments and issues is happening rapidly in history. Why the people want to make these disasters never read the history. If they learn from history similar disasters in human life will never happen. For example after Adolf Hitler in Germany ( Dictator that Suicide at last) many other dictators came ( Like Saddam Hussein in Iraq and…) and they got the same results. If we read the nations history it is full of similar issues was made by mankind. In fact mankind is repeating his/her mistakes rapidly without taking care to the result of same mistakes was made by others before.
