Re: Australia about to face Civil War?
Re: Australia: Civil War & 30 years of Social Engineering.
In order to have a civil war, people have to care about something. Australians, by and large, do not. In fact, they make a virtue out of NOT doing so. If anything has been socially engineered, it's the apathy which has been evanescent in a British colony which does not want to grow up.
This polarisation is happening in jails, newspapers, and in suburbs where immigrant communities pool in their own nationalities - which is NOTHING new in this country in the last 30 years. It's being stoked by newspapers which people with a brain are staying away from in their droves.
These things are not socially engineered. They are merely co-opted, and thrown in Australian's faces. They are a cluster of socially-laconic traits which have been regarded as self-evident from the very beginnings of the Australian nation. Politicians have merely codified them. This country has simply never gotten off the ground; it has NEVER had an identity of it's own.
It's called "She'll be right, mate", which when translated into the Amercianeese means "It's cool - chill man." Culturally-cool apathy - yich.
In order for a Civil War to occur, people have to be passionate about something. About the only thing Australians are passionate about are their tans, their beer, and their government benefits.
Australia is the land of the narcisict - yes California, you've been ousted, (and yes, we have Hollywood here too. Rupert Murdoch's fault - the quintisential Australian fiend, vis "I'm the evil tyrant, Rupert Murdoch!!" Rupert Murdoch, The Simpsons).
This may be news to America, but it's not to Australians who have been around for more than 30 years. Rupert was a key mouthpiece for the CIA ousting of the Labor Government of Gough Whitlam in 1973/4. Elizabeth II used John Kerr to ratify it, the CIA used Malcolm Frazer to instigate it, and America jailed Christopher Boyce for selling the secret that the US did it to the Soviet Union.
The movie? - "The Falcon and the Snowman".
Moslems/Aboriginals vs the rest? Maybe in jail... The rest of the country wants sand, sun, surf, sex, money, beer, and all the drugs they can quaff without getting caught.
Malcolm X once said: "The Man who does not stand for something, falls for anything.". In Australia's case, it's never stood for anything - it's simply never had to. Not much to engineer.
