"The “training” I got to make me “job-ready” was wasted before my degree was even finished. The philosophy I accidentally studied serves me well every single day. My degree taught me to think critically, write clearly and spot bullshit from a mile away.

The Coalition front bench know those are valuable skills, and the proponents of the western civilisation degree know that as well. When enrolments are deliberately curtailed by changes in government policy, it’s likely that not just the number of people learning to think critically and communicate clearly will be reduced, but the background of those learning those skills could change radically as well."

"You're not suggesting there is anything in it are you?"

No, not at all.

However, a quick look at what's happening in America shows the microscope is being held up to systemic racism, it's being directed towards some surprising places, and people here have asked the question about chess, a quick search will show that up too.

So, I can totally understand why a producer might ask that question, gather a panel to discuss it, and for all we know they're expecting the answer to come back in the negative: "Of course it's not racist."

The lesson in that would be, question everything but be fucken reasonable, people.

Instead the Sky news mob, who only deliver partisan news, have read it as a wholly different situation.

I thought they would have been looking at something like white & dark chocolate or ice cream or something by now and somehow trying to paint it as race related or affecting some group of people.

@Chook

Shaking my head in disbelief at the left is not a fight or a culture war, it's just another day of palm to the forehead watching leftist craziness wondering what craziness they will stir up next.

In regard to secret trials or whatever really couldn't care less, seems it has to do with spying on East timor, i mean for god's sake we helped ensure East Timor get independence to get to their petroleum fields, and people are worried about spying? (something i thought we just accepted these days as in reality happens all the time between countries)

If it wasn't for Australia, East Timor would most likely still be part of Indonesia and the maritime border continue.

Ultimately it's probably worked in Indonesias favour anyway, it reconfirmed what Indonesia was formed on (Dutch occupation) which has helped secure previously Dutch occupied West Papua which is much more resource rich, and they were probably going to lose one or the other anyway.

But hey, look over there at the branch-stacking by the dastardly labor/socialist/commos!

"In a move of almost respectable audacity, DFAT secretly amended the internationally accepted definition of petroleum for the first time to exclude inert gases, including helium which is commonly found within petroleum fields, instead classifying them as “waste material”. What was to be done with this “waste material”? It was given wholesale to the contractor parties — private foreign-owned corporations.
The corporatisation and privatisation of the state for the benefit of the few, at the expense of the many.

Even the petroleum extracted from the Timor Sea was never connected to the Australian grid. Instead, like the helium, it is shipped overseas and bought back by Australians at a mark-up."
More aussie neolib corpo fuckover genius. Oi!

“Since when did it become a crime to report a crime?”
When everyone became a suspect and the US enshrined the never-ending war on terror. A nonsensical time where people can be arrested before even committing a crime. A time where exposing unlawful behaviour and deceit has itself become a crime.

I’d morphed into the ultimate internet weirdo and it is time to get out.

AUSTRALIA by AD Hope

A nation of trees, drab green and desolate grey
In the field uniform of modern wars
Darkens her hills, those endless, outstretched paws
Of Sphinx demolished or stone lion worn away.

They call her a young country, but they lie:
She is the last of lands, the emptiest,
A woman beyond her change of life, a breast
Still tender but within the womb is dry.

Without songs, architecture, history:
The emotions and superstitions of younger lands,
Her rivers of water drown among inland sands,
The river of her immense stupidity

Floods her monotonous tribes from Cairns to Perth.
In them at last the ultimate men arrive
Whose boast is not: 'we live' but 'we survive',
A type who will inhabit the dying earth.

And her five cities, like five teeming sores,
Each drains her: a vast parasite robber-state
Where second-hand Europeans pullulate
Timidly on the edge of alien shores.

Yet there are some like me turn gladly home
From the lush jungle of modern thought, to find
The Arabian desert of the human mind,
Hoping, if still from the deserts the prophets come,

Such savage and scarlet as no green hills dare
Springs in that waste, some spirit which escapes
The learned doubt, the chatter of cultured apes
Which is called civilization over there.

@Guy (@ Brutus if your reading)

If you must know i saw Brutus posts asking why i didn't address some of his points on the day the thread got locked, i had started a post on my lunch break (only working a few blocks from home), left it to go back to work, latter that day i finished the post, clicked return and the damn thread was already closed. (can totally understand why it was shut though)

I dont think Stu would appreciate us digging up the topic again, but i will give you a basic run down:

Different cultures, values, human rights, womens rights etc when isolated from each other don't all evolve at the same rate of change, the clear example of this can be seen in PNG which was also isolated from the outside world had colonisation to an extent but the country population is still 99.9% original inhabitants, culture & languages still practised, self governed, doesn't have the past mistreatment of indigenous people like we do (massacres, stolen generation, missions etc)

So its impossible to say all these issues in PNG are because of colonisation, intergenerational trauma, racism or any other one word lazy catch phrase.

Yet what is the situation like? (what is your explanation for the situation there?)

PNG has almost all the same problems seen in remote Indigenous communities, extremely high levels of violence, especially domestic and sexual based violence, one off the highest homicide rates in the world many other issues. (i believe its only suicide rates that are not crazy)

I don't believe it's the people as such but more about development of cultures that have been isolated from the world, and then you get aspects from the west like easy access to alcohol that fuels these things, and then for remote (Australian)indigenous communities you have the added effect ive already talked about with being thrust from having a clear purpose that being everyday survival and understanding the unknown and environment to being thrust into a state of social welfare boredom where purpose is taken and replaced with a dole cheque.

At least have a think about this, think about how different cultures evolve in regards to just simple things like, how they approach disputes, do they talk things out, or is violence used, who decides men or all the community, how do cultures traditional treat women or equality, how we partner up (arranged marriages, age differences etc)

There is so many different little factors, long ago we all started at the same point, but we are all evolving to another point much of that evolution only happening in the last 200 years especially the last 50 years or less, all our cultures now influence each other and change each others cultures, on a world scale we have for most of the world expected general standards and values, or they are coming closer together.

I didn't avoid Brutus questions because i couldn't or didnt want too answer them firstly the post he is referring too i actually had replied too just not all his points, i was also just trying to be tactful and trying to be respectful, seeing although i disagree with his narrative and follow a narrative closer to other indigenous people like Jacinta price, Anthony Dillion, Warren Mundine etc i respect that it's something close to his heart, the conversation between me and Brutus was going fine before others turned the thread into a shit storm,(that i played no part in) only reason i decided to give a reply(that never got posted due to thread being shut) was because he asked for a reply.

Also there comes a point sometimes where you just have to agree to disagree otherwise it just turns into a shit show, same thing goes for replying to people like Soggy dog above, sometimes you just have to go okay you believe what you want to believe about me or the topic at hand, throw insults at me, but look i don't really care you are just a name on a screen, the natural urge or reaction is to return the insults, but really it achieves nothing, you feel good for 30 seconds and then i don't know about you but i don't actually feel that good latter, stranger or not i just don't feel good when getting aggressive or abusing people etc.

Anyway i hope this post doesn't re start the topic, but felt it needed to be addressed. (so delete if you wish Stu ideally once Guy has read it)

Indo..yes untimely for Stu to shut down the racism post...ironic that we can't even have a conversation about Australia's racism problem as the maturity of some of the postee's........always comes back to their personal agenda or a need to feel superior by belittling someone else.....

I thought we were making a bit progress as I was at the start of a conversation on racism in Australia........but the amount of racist comments and lack of education of Australian Indigenous culture was and is appalling ......

It's really sad that to even see on a surf forum , that you Indo continually search for information to support your views , but when I find out how critical you were of Dark Emu...even though had never read it...you based your opinion on right leaning criticisms of the book....so your opinion was actually some one else's view and therefore not a really valid personal view.
Blowin's a worse example he just makes up stuff up to support his opinion....there's really no need to continue this conversation as it just polarizes people , get's personal and then Stu has to shut down the discussion.....because of the hurtful shit everyone throws at each other....
Just so you know I came on to talk racism as cathartic , for myself....I loved some of the incredible stories told be some of our forum dwellers.....but then there are always who hurt people without knowing as their evolution as a human , comes across as neanderthal at best....
It's really tiring , the fight for equality , and search for truth....as the sniping is just so small minded...which I understand and as can be seen on Swellnet!

Herc/Uplift/Crypto etc said a lot of things while here, but i never recall him saying he was indigenous and you can be pretty sure that he would have mentioned it if he was or if he identified in that way especially seeing some of the conversations were around the topic of identifying.

Im pretty sure in all the back and forth stuff when he use to go on about "Old Whitey" this and that, Blowin use to razz him up about being the "Old Whitey" too and it wasn't something he denied.

So unless Herc has since gone back through his family tree and found an indigenous family member and decided to identify as Indigenous I doubt little has changed.

Ha ha that is one crazy song, pity about the lyrics i actually don't mind the vibe of it.

Tis a great poem by AD Hope.

Speaking to the rejuvenation of spirit and knowledge afforded to the outcasts of the Great South Land. Those sent in chains . In slavery and servitude , as victims of a tumultuous class war . Those who were perished to find “ a punishment beyond endurance “ as bestowed by the justices of Britain.

“ Such savage and scarlet as no green hills dare
Springs in that waste, some spirit which escapes
The learned doubt, the chatter of cultured apes
Which is called civilization over there.”

So it is with modern Australia, which is still the envy of the entirety of the world. Peaceful, harmonious and rich .

Every single Australian wakes with the opportunity denied to virtually any other , even now in these days of unknowable vicissitudes. We are truly fortunate of the distance which allows us to elude the “ learned doubt “ confining those with Millenia of cultural , classist and racial history which would bind them to their fate. The same distance which allowed the development of confidence and independence as a nation , despite the shadow cast by those who would render us all perpetually obliged and obsequious.

Whilst our politicians act as politicians are universally want , it’s not negligent to assume that within the peaceful and diverse majority lies the wisdom which the prophets from the desert may speak.....the wisdom of communal conviviality .

We are an overtly tolerant society as a direct result of our geographic and cultural removal from“ the chatter of cultured apes“ personified by the culture wars pitting white vs black in the old world.

Ours is a chance of harmony. Not conceding superiority of any , but the pronouncement of equality for all and any. This is the only way forward .

Thirty years ago , before culture wars based on confrontation upset the blissful merger and mutual pride possible within our country.... https://youtu.be/GN3tNYupkoc

Back when a band singing honest words about commiserations united the globe https://youtu.be/ejorQVy3m8E A time when a traditional voice united the nation https://youtu.be/S7cbkxn4G8U and a nation came as one to say sorry https://www.nfsa.gov.au/latest/newscaf-harbour-bridge-reconciliation-walk.

Now it’s back to combative black vs white .......progress ?

Yeah I thought the same. Blowfly also recently posted about Liverpool FC. Don’t recall Uplift being a fan....

Not those post covid humble US Millionaires now Billionaires now Trillionaires

PS: Hon Shaoquett Moselmane MLC
#8 NSW Position vacated by Henry Tsang (The Chinese vote) won by Moselmane.
It stands to reason that Moselmane adopts Chinese community that elected him.
Muslim base vote alone is not gonna win him a seat! So the MP represents Chinese.

Chairs Lebanese / Greek / Chinese / Arab / Republicans / Students / Justice groups.
Established Multicultural / Indigenous Journalist / Human Rights Awards.
Also chairs Kids -on-wheels Alliance Charity for disabled kids.
Supreme Court Law degree + Masters in Politics / Govt / Admin.
This guy is on so many committees...going to China once a year is not crime, yet!

1st NSW Muslim MP has political views alright...more closer to what you'd expect...
May 2013 -(NSW Parliament) S. Moselmane: "Jewish advocacy groups are cancerous & malicious & try to deny, misinform & scaremonger!"
ALP / Libs Parliament never flinched...No AFP / ASIO raids...

Call out Oz racism & Support biggest trade partner China in heat of the moment!
Trump / Scomo / Dutto/ AFP / ASIO / Libs / ALP all want yer head on a platter.

This guy does play the race card but usually just supports any underdog...(China?)
The infamous YouTube Clip is harmless! It simply calls it as it is!

tbb thinks 5 Eyes are messing with the wrong guy...he's no Dark Overlord.
Sure! He's a Muslim supporting a Chinese voter base...that creeps Aussies Out!
Another Hooded Julian Assange to parade before the Media...(You wanna join him!)
