Australia has too many people in it who have their cultural allegiance still with the country they left. Their English speaking ability is poor. Their accent is far too thick to understand them and their vocabulary is limited. Yet, they still expect to come to Australia and we stupidly let them in. Or more accurately—our stupid politicians allow them to settle here. Are they assimilating as fast as they can—NO!. They consider us Australians as foreigners and inhabit ethnic enclaves in the suburbs. This means they are not forced to use English as much as they should. Instead, when thousands of them cluster in a particular suburb, it is as if they have colonised that suburb. The Australian government does little to pressure them to assimilate as fast as they can.
Is it any wonder that literacy and numeracy rates have declined, over the years, in Australia? Not that NAPLAN is to be praised because it does narrow the curriculum and limit some creativity. But it does highlight the decline in literacy ability. This decline is also caused by ridiculous teaching methods and ideas emanating from the Education department, especially from English teachers who are notorious for destroying the English syllabus, over the years, by advocating too munch creativity instead of real substance in the English curriculum. In reference to the migrant situation, the reason for literacy decline is that the new intake of migrants comes over here with the adults speaking very poor English. Their children, therefore, are not being taught, in every day life, as much English in the home because the parents can only speak their original foreign language fluently. These adults find English far too difficult. This also affects all school subjects because the children then do not have as good English speaking and writing abilities. The children’s energy is being wasted learning their parent’s foreign language, as well as English. And maybe they don’t care so much about mastering English because they consider it a second language and their original one more important. Thus they struggle at school because they are not getting as much practice, at home, with English, as they should be obtaining.
We have too many cultures crammed into some suburbs and each one promotes their traditions and religion, instead of assimilating into Australian culture. This is most annoying evident with Middle Eastern and Indian migrants. The preference, of many, for their traditional clothes, in particular the women and some men, just makes Australia look ugly and daggy. Going back 20 years or more, we never had such appalling dress codes as we have now with the arrogant Middle Eastern migrants. They have no problem assimilating our jobs, money, houses and other types of material possessions. But they insist on dressing conservatively and daggily. The women, in particular, are a brain-washed mob. They dress in their traditonal rags to preserve their modesty. Long ago, we abandoned such idiotic religious ideas and the fashion women wore became far more attractive and stylish. Middle Eastern behaviour is controlled far too much by religious ideas coming out of the minds of bearded me. Yet another obsolete custom, we here in the advanced technologically dominated nations, abandoned decades ago. At the heart of the problem is religious, dogmatic dictatorship. Australia is going backwards because of religious Muslim women, who are dominated by their cultural ideas about conservative dress standards.
Admittedly, we have another problem in Australia besides migrant dress arrogance and conservatisms. Our population is becoming unattractive due to our over weight problem. We no longer look attractive in stylish clothes, due to our bulging bellies. That is something all Australians need to concentrate on solving.
The reason we can not let any one culture dominate is that there are now so many of these foreign cultures being arrogantly upheld, here in Australia. The clash and conflict is inevitable. It was a dangerous ides to shove together, so many arrogant, diverse and incompatible cultures with conflicting religious ideas. Australia has, since the mid 1960s, managed to limit the influence that Christian religions have played in political life. We have adopted birth control and abortion in a wide spread way and ignored objections from the Catholic Church. We have moved away from the adulation of the so called British Empire and embraced the idea of an independent country ruled by own elected politicians. A republic has not been officially declared as yet, but we effectively govern ourselves, with our own unique Australian ideas, without any condescending help from England.
Furthermore, as previously stated, we have ignored all Christian religious ideas about conservative dress for females. And our country is better for it—fashion wise. But now our intelligence is insulted by the moronic onslaught of conservative, arrogant, obsolete religious ideas from the Middle East and India. Are these people just plain ugly, or does religious/cultural practices turn them into FUGLIES? Take a look around any suburban shopping centre and just observe the faces of multi-culturalism. They would have to be the biggest bunch of unattractive people you have ever seen. Perhaps it stems from centuries of inbreeding in their country. The point is this: their religious practices, in terms of conservative dress and their miserable visual appearance, is turning Australia into as ugly a nation, resembling these migrants’ homelands.
These people, who try to promote multi-culturalism, don’t take into account these unfortunate side affects. Further, as we rush to house more and more migrants, we are shoving people into home units, in suburbs that are already full. This just creates poverty-like congestion around the main shopping centres of suburbs. This policy had a name a few decades ago. It was referred to as urban consolidation. Which simply meant cramming more people into crowded, high density, home unit sectors of many suburbs.
It is still going on today. This was really done so that companies like Meriton and others, could profit by building lots of home unit complexes and investors could charge people rent. Investors then used this rent money to pay off their investment property. Local planning authority was stripped away from local councils and individual residents, in these areas. Instead, they were bull-dozed by the Land and Environment court and forced to accept these mega-unit complexes, in their suburbs. Every time a local council stopped a developer from getting approval to build a new unit complex, they would go tot the Land and environment court. Inevitably, the court ruled in favour of the developer and a new ugly unit complex was built in the suburbs, usually in the crowded area around the train station of a suburb.
Bu the real blame resides with THE Federal government which continued to allow the migrant intake to increase and continue. Artificially, the federal government, over the years, has created a housing shortage by allowing migration to take place. It should have shut the door years ago. This is why we have a housing shortage and such inflated housing prices. The Federal government, under John Howard and recently under Rudd/ Gillard/ Rudd are to blame for the housing crisis we are in at the moment. We just don’t need this many people from diverse cultures settling in Australia, in so short a period of time. Waiting lists, for public housing are years in length. This has created more homelessness and pushed more people into poverty in Australia. Yet the media and the government put a propaganda spin on this whole sickening spectacle. They try to say it is just the free market and auctions pushing up prices. They had a big influence in it and should be held accountable for its problems. They were the ones they could have reduced or halted completely the yearly migrant intake into Australia.
Just because people want to live in Australia, doesn’t mean we should allow them to settle here. Their own poverty stricken countries are in their pathetic state due to over population, caused by religious ideas. And further compounded by a lack of how to govern a nation. Their over crowded problems were caused by themselves. We shouldn’t be expected to solve their problems, by accepting them into Australia and reducing our standard of living, just to accommodate them. The presence of immense numbers of migrants over crowds our existing inner city suburbs and now our medium radial distanced suburbs (those suburbs measured from the centre of Sydney). They choke our roads with too many cars. Some are pathetic and clumsy drivers, who bribed the local motor registry officials to get a car license. They bring corruption and inferior standards of driving to this country.
There are so many languages being uttered by the parents of these migrants that their children are not learning English fluently enough and quickly enough. They contribute to the overall decline in literacy and numeracy, in our pathetic education system. Yet expect their language/history/culture to be taught in /Australian schools, along with the standard syllabus. What a nerve! They left their poverty stricken countries for a better life, here in Australia, yet they expect to have their useless, obsolete, irrelevant culture taught in Australian schools. What an insult! They have no interest in Australian history and American pop culture which is the dominant culture here now in Australia. They are so wrapped up in their decadent, obsolete, irrelevant culture from their homelands. Well, if they are so attached to it-why don’t they go back to their homeland? Well—they won’t because they know it is poverty stricken and bankrupt and they can obtain more money and a better standard of living here.
One thing has to be made clear to these arrogant migrants. We, in Australia, don’t need any of their useless culture to be added to ours or to replace our existing culture. We have our own unique heritage. We are quickly dumping a lot of useless things that are British and updating ourselves with ideas from more advanced and intelligent countries, such as America.
