  1. incoherent rambler

    Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce will welcome about 200 asylum seekers from Syria and Iraq into his electorate …

    Barney Rubble is as dumb as dogshit.
    I wonder if he will welcome the consequential decline in his vote count.

  2. incoherent rambler

    …which is flat by the way.

    Only on the top.

  3. woolfe

    Barnaby Joyce just announced that he is screwing over his own electorate. Armidale is to get enriched with a couple of hundred rapists and terrorists.

    He has 4 daughters

  4. Snoopy

    Armidale deserves them.

  5. thefrolickingmole

    Its a little curious, a miscarriage is a fetus up to 20 weeks, after that its classed as a stillbirth.

    One is pretty well purely a medical issue the second usualy requires at least some investigation and appreciation of the families/womans feelings.

    Heres the NSW guidelines.
    General considerations
    1.1 Every hospital must have a local policy for the management of the family,
    care of the stillborn baby and the investigation of the stillbirth.
    1.2 The local policy must clearly articulate the processes for the distinct
    identification of the body of the stillborn baby and comply with
    PD2005_138 Deaths Register.
    1.3 The local policy must include procedures for the transfer of the stillborn
    baby between and within maternity services and the mortuary. This must
    be documented in the baby’s medical record.

    And a heap more, all recognizing that for all intents and purpouses at 20 weeks its to be treated as a full term baby body.

    Unless its an abortion in which case its off to the pig farm for the medical waste.

    Late term abortion is a perverse thing, but feminists will die in a ditch to defend it, why?

  6. True Aussie

    He has 4 daughters

    I hope Barnaby will be open minded and help them pick out their new burqas

    Not for long. A big storm is just overdue, that’s all.

    Economically literate friends – my nephew is doing VCE economics and sent me this:
    I am doing an economics assignment based on the macroeconomic policies that impact the future sustainability of the National electricity market (NEM) in Australia and was wondering if you had any examples or knowledge of policies between 2015-17 As I can’t seem to find any.
    Any ideas?

    Maybe check out COAG Energy Council website or AEMC website (sorry, don’t know how to link)

    Would you expect a rational answer from any of them?

  10. incoherent rambler

    Barnaby Rubble’s first encounter with “oww much for the leetle girl” will be most interesting.

    I can understand the desire for abortion as a “feminist” issue, but to simultaneously say losing a baby after 20 weeks is a tragedy, but deliberately having one killed is just a “choice” defies logic.

    The Kermit Gosnels of the world go home thinking they are good people doing a good job and society condones and in some sectors celebrates it as a good thing.

  12. Late term abortion is a perverse thing, but feminists will die in a ditch to defend it, why?

    Because it concedes the minor premise:

    Major premise: All innocent human life deserves the protection of the law.
    Minor premise: The child in utero is an innocent human life.
    Conclusion: The child in utero deserves the protection of the law.

  13. notafan

    Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce will welcome about 200 asylum seekers from Syria and Iraq into his electorate under a federal government push to encourage more asylum seekers to settle in the regions.

    Depends who they are, doesn’t it, there are refugees and refussees.

  14. Stimpson J. Cat

    Stimpy – you are getting fleeced. You are correct.

    A person familiar added that an additional top question was: “What can we do to clarify for the entire company that there is one hiring bar,” regardless of race or gender?

    So two matching candidates and the white man will lose out because of his skin colour or genitals…. that’s not a diversity program, that is outright racism and sexism.

    Google CEO is a fascist scum. Eat that google bots.

    happened to a few I know, I have no doubt it was a good thing, a name, a birth certificate and a death certificate.

    Why is the answer irrational? I think it goes down to innate selfish gene behaviours.

    If you have an affluent class with falling birth rates and uncertain paternity, then supporting abortion with an inability to give it enunciated philosophical support fits the frame. It becomes rational in light of other behaviours.

    It also speaks of a general ignorance of what these procedures really involve.

    The same people will otherwise go stupid over a picture of their living children or a dog.

  21. calli

    Why is the answer irrational?

    Which answer? I didn’t see one. I was generalising on the stupidity of boilerplate feminism.

  22. notafan

    Suppose you could adopt kids from some shithole like Somalia, but once they were “owned” they were the absolute property of the “parents”.

    Given the choice between death/famine and living as a slave for 18 years which is worse?

    Are they orphans, being voluntarily relinquished for adoption or forcibly removed from their parents.

    If it is the later two then why would you save the children and not them and their parents.

    Sounds like an excuse for slavery and not a reason.

    Btw the ME is already notorious for the enslaving children in exactly this sort of exigent circumstances and there in nothing charitable about the purpose of the acquirers.

  23. Why is the answer irrational?

    Because it is.

    It becomes rational in light of other behaviours.

    No, it may be intelligible in light of other behaviours, but that doesn’t mean it’s rational.

  25. Snoopy

    Trump is ensconced in his Bedminster, NJ golf resort so he can plot the nuclear annihilation of North Korea without his evil plans being leaked to Kim Jong-un.

    http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/human_nature/2012/03/after_birth_abortion_the_pro_choice_case_for_infanticide_.html

    No, I didn’t make this up. “Partial-birth abortion” is a term invented by pro-lifers. But “after-birth abortion” is a term invented by two philosophers, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva. In the Journal of Medical Ethics, they propose:

    [W]hen circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible. … [W]e propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.

    Indeed Mrs Cartman. You can have that 40th trimester abortion.

  30. Suppose you could adopt kids from some shithole like Somalia, but once they were “owned” they were the absolute property of the “parents”.

    Given the choice between death/famine and living as a slave for 18 years which is worse?

    This is an utterly stupid way, but all to typical now, of engaging in moral problems. What principle are you testing? Who knows? We could just as well say: Suppose you could kidnap kids from some shithole like Somalia, but once they were kidnapped they became the absolute property of the “kidnapper”. Given the choice between death/famine and living as a slave for 18 years which is worse? Ergo, kidnapping children from Somalia is morally preferable to the rights of parents in Somalia. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

    It’s a clear non sequitur because the principle, that a child has a right to be cared for and educated by its natural parents, neither stands or falls on your example. And, yes, that principle is a fundamental right, found in the UNDHR, ICCPR, ICESCR, and UNCRC.

    Today’s Peak Stupid award went to the urgers for Year 8 ‘abstinence.’ We now have another contender arguing the opposite. I am torn.

    Oregon State ‘Fat Studies’ Course Claims that ‘Weightism’ Is a Civil Rights Issue
    A course entitled “Fat Studies” at Oregon State University argues that “weightism” is a civil rights issue, making it harder for overweight Americans to get ahead.
    The course, which will be offered in the spring, will examine “body weight, shape, and size as an area of human difference subject to privilege and discrimination that intersects with other systems of oppression based on gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, and ability.”
    The course will be taught by instructor Patti Lou Watkins, who penned an article in European Health Psychologist, which argued that humans can be healthy at any body weight, an endorsement of the widely-panned “Health At Any Size” movement. Body size isn’t a good indicator of health, she argues. To Watkins, even individuals who can be classified as morbidly obese could be healthy.
    “I grew to embrace feminist pedagogy in terms of course content as well as classroom practices,” Watkins explains. “My course now frames body image disturbances more as a function of oppressive societal structures than of individual pathology.”

    Getting missiles to go up without exploding or going wildly off course is one thing. Getting a warhead to come down on a dot on the map is another game altogether. I’d say that firing a missile in the general direction of Guam and most of the way there would be enough to start some rather nasty processes.

    From the link above:

    Last month the Islamophobia in Australia report highlighted the extent to which Muslims in Australia have come under attack. Nearly 70 per cent of victims were women, and more than 30 per cent of attacks were in front of children, leading some in the community to proclaim: “My kids don’t feel safe in their own country.”

    In defence of the CBA and Banks in general.

    Back yay when your local bank manager was a proper bank manager and knew his local people you could actually walk into a bank and talk to the manager of your concerns.

    Sure he would want to charge you money for providing you with money but that used to be accepted way back when.

    And those now old style bankers knew more about large and small business’ than anyone could poke a stick at.

    But then came the globalization of banking that started in the 1970’s. Banks cannot lend to small business because the top echelon have no f*king idea of how to make money and think that if they centralize and control the lending people then they have control of the process.

    Mal Turd is a prime example of not knowing how to make money. Would not have a clue and I notice that Kerry Packer soon got rid of him.

    Late 1990’s I had an idea to make some money and sought out an old banker and not because I needed any money but just because I would respect his opinion. Little branch in Canberra by the bye.

    He said he would give me 15 minutes. After he had satisfied himself of my background in that first 15 minutes we spent another 40 minutes discussing my ‘idea’.

    No cost to him but he endorsed it.

    Move forward to early 2000’s and I am making a presentation down in Launceston. Another old banker is Chairman of the board. There is a female SJW on the board who finally chips me about what I am presenting. I wearily turned to her and said “Ma’am. That you cannot understand what I am proposing renders you unfit to sit on this board.” The Chairman dismissed her comments and told her to stop.

    No cost to him but he endorsed it.

    The current imbroglio for CBA is a direct consequence of stupid politicians and elites thinking they can ‘fix’ banking.

  75. BrettW

    Neil James of Defence Association just on 4BC and mentioned female soldiers suffered injuries at 4-7 x the rate of males.

    So combine that with their down time due to giving birth etc and you have a very significant negative in recruiting more females in the Army. Naturally it is the males that have to cover the loss of women power due to injury or births etc.

    Yet the PC Generals are all for it as encouraged by their diversity consultants.

    What is irritating is that Christopher Pyne etc are actually trying to support the policy.

    We need more leaks from ADF recruiters etc as this is a scandal.

    A good cause for I Independents like Bernadi, Hanson and dare I say it Lambie to get stuck into. The ADF chief’s need to be embarrassed in public over their push for more females.

    At the end of the day I want male soldiers on the front line rather female.

    WTF, ALGore grows a brain?

    Former Vice President Al Gore told BBC 4’s Radio Today that President Trump ‘inherited a very dangerous situation’ with North Korea – an admission at direct odds with the blame heaped the President by the MSM for rising tensions between the two nations.

    The Washington Examiner reports that “Gore believes President Trump should be praised for his handling of escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea, lauding the U.N. Security Council’s unanimous vote to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang.”

    Gore added that while Trump’s “fire and fury” warning didn’t help the situation, the sanctions levied against N. Korea were an “achievement for his diplomacy.”

    The former VP went on to say “Donald Trump inherited a very dangerous situation that has been building for some time,” adding “This crisis has been building since long before Donald Trump entered the White House.”

    How is this possible unless he had a transplant?

    This is outrageous.

    Frolicking,

    3 kids in 7 years does not leave much time for actual soldiering.

    However it seems the ADF command has totally lost sight of the mission to protect the country and it is now more interested to provide equal opportunity in employment.

    Some may recall on International Women’s Day a few months ago that the PM spent his time with women of the ADF. So the PC crap is coming down from the top.

    I guess the PC disease has infiltrated the hierarchy so much that it is almost impossible to reverse. Chief of Army has previously threatened those who do not support his recruitment policy.

    Same happening in the police but there it is 50/50 being recruited now.

    These policies going to have long term negative effects on the efficiency of major institutions designed to protect us.

    At a certain level you have to admire the chutzpah of these bozos. Terrorist attacks both successful and unsuccessful up the ying-yang yet somehow they are the victims!

    Didn’t I just tell you lot about the almost genius level ability of muslims to invert any situation so as to have them come out as the victims?
    I know they do it, and they still sometimes catch me out!
    If you sometimes feel yourself feeling sympathetic towards one of these people, you have to stop, go back over the conversation, and search for the point at which the story inverted.
    You will be amazed at the sheer audacity of the twist that trapped you.
    And don’t trust a bloody word the Kurd tell you either. They are well known for their ability in the Arab world to set enemies fighting each other, and convincing others to do their fighting for them.

    From the link above:

    Last month the Islamophobia in Australia report highlighted the extent to which Muslims in Australia have come under attack. Nearly 70 per cent of victims were women, and more than 30 per cent of attacks were in front of children, leading some in the community to proclaim: “My kids don’t feel safe in their own country.”

    At a certain level you have to admire the chutzpah of these bozos. Terrorist attacks both successful and unsuccessful up the ying-yang yet somehow they are the victims!

    From Martin Armstrong and Australia has always been ‘egalitarian’ to an absurd degree.

    Behind the Curtain, there seems to be no government going completely nuts more so than Australia. They are doubling taxes on all foreigners who own property, which is a violation of international law, and then they made it a crime for a foreign to even buy a house undisclosed. On top of all of this insanity, that they are planning to strip consumers of their legal protections if they pay in cash and fail to get a receipt. If an Australian pays for anything in cash, they suspect he is hiding money.

    This outrageous proposal is clearly exposing the Australian government as a leftist goose-stepping authoritarian regime going complete insane hunting Australians for taxes. They are even following children to school and then check the school as to how they are being paid. This is real Hitler stuff. That is why the Swiss created number accounts because he made it illegal for a German to have any account outside of Germany.

    The number of Victoria Police injured and off on stress leave seems to be becoming a major issue.

    Is it to do with the diversity they confront on the streets,or the increasing violence like cop cars being rammed daily in yarragrad, or the diversity of the changing wymynsysisation of the police service?.

    Surprisingly enough, for a department that prides itself on knowing how fast it is becoming diverse to the fraction of a percent, it doesn’t seem to be able to break down the numbers of people injured and on stress leave to their diversity components.

    Maybe i have missed the announcement and there is no overrepresentation of any one demographic in stress and injury leave and any stories are just anecdotal.

    The yarragrad youth justice system has an even bigger problem.

    “The latest WorkSafe figures reveal that there have been 85 claims in the past two years. Since 2010, almost $10 million has been paid out to about 384 employees for stress or injury claims.”

    I think Lord Acton understood the fragility of freedom, especially on an empty belly. Just a snippet from his magnificent address on 26 February, 1877 to the Bridgnorth Institute – The History of Freedom in Antiquity

    Liberty, next to religion has been the motive of good deeds and the common pretext of crime, from the sowing of the seed at Athens, 2,460 years ago, until the ripened harvest was gathered by men of our race.

    It is the delicate fruit of a mature civilization; and scarcely a century has passed since nations, that knew the meaning of the term, resolved to be free.

    In every age its progress has been beset by its natural enemies, by ignorance and superstition, by lust of conquest and by love of ease, by the strong man’s craving for power, and the poor man’s craving for food.

    During long intervals it has been utterly arrested, when nations were being rescued from barbarism and from the grasp of strangers, and when the perpetual struggle for existence, depriving men of all interest and understanding in politics, has made them eager to sell their birthright for a pottage, and ignorant of the treasure they resigned.

    At all times sincere friends of freedom have been rare, and its triumphs have been due to minorities, that have prevailed by associating themselves with auxiliaries whose objects often differed from their own; and this association, which is always dangerous, has been sometimes disastrous, by giving to opponents just ground of opposition, and by kindling dispute over the spoils in the hour of success.

    No obstacle has been so constant, or so difficult to overcome as uncertainty and confusion touching the nature of true liberty. If hostile interests have wrought much injury, false ideas have wrought still more; and its advance is recorded in the increase of knowledge as much as in the improvement of laws.

    The history of institutions is often a history of deception and illusions; for their virtue depends on the ideas that produce and on the spirit that preserves them; and the form may remain unaltered when the substance has passed away.

    Romper Stomper: Why I won’t be watching Stan’s new TV series
    By Saman Shad

    …Same hatred, new target
    The six-part drama will continue the story started in the original film 25 years ago, but with some key differences.
    This time around the victims of the skinheads are to be Muslim Australians. In the original film the skinheads targeted Asian Australians as they were the enemy de jour. Clearly the producers didn’t think that Asian Australians were provocative enough anymore.
    And who better to target today than Muslims? Because clearly not enough hate has been generated against Muslims…

    The makers of Romper Stomper the TV series are probably going to be buoyed by such controversy.
    Geoffery Wright, the man behind the film and the TV show, said on the show’s announcement: “I think we’re in more PC times now than in the old days. There’s more pressure to not do this, not do that.”

    Rather than falling for old tropes maybe it’s time we look to the future. Our TV screens certainly need more diverse faces, and not just ones playing victims or terrorists.
    We need diverse stories about the many immigrants coming to our shores. We don’t need to rehash a story that’s already had an outing on the big screen. A story that has the potential to unleash violence on unsuspecting victims who have already been marginalised.
    So when it comes to it, will I be watching Romper Stomper the TV series? Like Stratton, I refuse to rate a series I won’t be watching, and you probably shouldn’t as well.

  128. So, how does putting disparate people together suddenly cancel out problematic differences but reinforce and amplify strengths, just by virtue of difference.

    Has anything been heard from Bwana Beaugy since the pants shop disappeared mysteriously?

    I’m starting to worry.

    Fear not. Bwana Beaugy has collected his pants. He has moved from cockroach (and centipede) ridden squalor to a cheap hotel, which is just opposite the mysterious vanishing shop. The lady who made the black pants saw him and waved as she opened for business on the first day in a week.

    The hotel charges $35 a day instead of $30, and provides breakfast, so works out cheaper. I was kept awake by the sound of the ocean crashing on Hikkaduwa reef last night. I went outside from eleven to midnight on to my balcony, where I can see the lines of surf a hundred metres away. If I look down, I can see the waves breaking three metres below. It is breathtakingly beautiful.

    I have Aircon and they keep my bottles of diet coke in the hotel fridge for me.

    The room is very old fashioned and has a big four poster bed. The doors are all warped and need to be forced and I have a Yale lock which takes skill to open, and an old fashioned key with a metal plate chained to it. Five stars it is not, but the staff are friendly and obliging. Breakfast was tea, toast and an omelette. The bath has a hole in it. But it has h/c water and a shower with four times the pressure of the one in the house. I have moved up many steps in terms of gracious living, even if it reminds me of my student days. Only it’s warm and beautiful, while wasn’t true of anywhere I lived then.

    Falling to sleep to the sound of the sea is wonderful. I don’t want to go home.

    I miss the dogs. Even having them sneak up on me in the dark and lick my toes. But being shot of the evil landlady is worth it. I paid the old bat 5,000 rupees just to cut her loose, allegedly for electricity and water, but actually tribute to her grasping misery. She lacks the imagination to demand more.

    I gave the microwave oven and surplus odds and ends to my guide and his friends. If I’d known what I know now I’d have taken Mama’s hotel and restaurant first off, but the aim of life is to make as many mistakes as possible, all of them different.

    I’m doing a good job.

    Murdoch press has been on a slippery slope towards the Left lately. Whether or not that is because the Murdoch kiddies are exerting their politics I don’t know, but it seems to be having an effect:

    Newspaper woes send Murdoch’s News Corp into red

    US media group News Corp on Thursday reported a loss in the past quarter, hit by declines in advertising and writedowns at its global newspapers.

    The company controlled by media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his family reported a loss of $430 million in the fiscal quarter ending June 30.

    Revenues slipped 6.6 percent from a year ago to $2.08 billion.

    They seem not to have worked it out that bashing Trump just causes more conservative to walk away.

    Well guys the NYT, Grauniad, WaPo and Fairfax are all bleeding money like the good socialists they are. Perhaps you should do something different, like market yourselves to the quiet right.

    And don’t ignore the not quite right, either.

    There isn’t one. This is from a lefty writer this week:

    Gauis Publius: There Is No “Political Center” in Modern America

    Confirmation of part of this analysis — that Clinton’s attempt to win by wooing “centrist” voters sloshing undecidely between the parties was an error — comes from a 2016 book, Democracy for Realists, by political scientists Larry Bartels and Christopher Achen. As Eric Levitz writes in a recent New York Magazine article, “The notion that there is an easily identifiable, median political ideology in America derives from the ‘spatial model’ [i.e., linear] of the electorate, which first gained prominence in the middle of the 20th century.”

    In other words, if it is assumed that most voters are on the “left,” the party to the “right” will drift that way. If it is assumed most voters are on the “right,” the “left” party will similarly move. And if voters are in the “center,” both parties will tend to move there with them.

    What Bartels and Achen discovered was something that should have been obvious from the start — that this is just not the case. What they discovered is that there is no political “center” in modern America.

    That appears to be true. Both the left and the right are going further to the left and right in the US. Here Labor and the LNP have both chosen to go left – leaving the AC, PHON and others as the remaining home for righties.

    As the left goes off into fruitloop-land there’re fewer and fewer people in the centre. Chasing these people is not a business model anymore. The West has split into two tribes – loud authoritarian nutters whose policies don’t work and quiet people who increasingly don’t answer pollsters and only come out at elections. But the latter do buy stuff – like Chick-fil-A and Ivanka’s dresses. They won’t buy stuff that appeals to the left, and they quietly drop their subscriptions and go find other things to do.

  184. .

    How can you sue someone for something that hasn’t happened yet!

    The exchange of briefs will be interesting. Where has the plaintiff’s causation gone?!

    Someone (A). Possibly without standing. Is suing B for funding C. Which B cannot prove activity X that C participates in, does harm, to an unspecified amount, to D. D happens to be everyone and D engaged in the activity with a voluntary assumption of risk and have contributory negligence as deposit holders in B, shareholders in B and C and customers of C (and B). D also includes the parties intervening presumably for A.

    What the hell is the quantum of damages here?!

    GTFO.

    Now.

    I was kept awake by the sound of the ocean crashing on Hikkaduwa reef last night. I went outside from eleven to midnight on to my balcony, where I can see the lines of surf a hundred metres away. If I look down, I can see the waves breaking three metres below. It is breathtakingly beautiful.

    You bastard.

    The room is very old fashioned and has a big four poster bed. The doors are all warped and need to be forced and I have a Yale lock which takes skill to open, and an old fashioned key with a metal plate chained to it. Five stars it is not, but the staff are friendly and obliging.

    In other words, spiritual five-star.

    I stayed in a beach house in Tahiti like that once where horses ate mangoes off the tree 50 yards from the surf and crabs theatrically carted them off to their burrow.

    American Thinker speculates on why the garrulous, media tart, Pope Frank has had little to say on Venezuela. Excerpt may explain.

    The pope’s been in bed with liberation theology for years and has made some showy showings of hanging out with some of its Marxist dinosaurs, notably its founder, Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez, from Peru, as well as “rehabilitating” him. Liberation theology can stand up and take a bow in Venezuela – the late, unlamented dictator, Hugo Chávez, consistently cited the hellhole he was creating as a product of liberation theology. As if that were not bad enough, the pope has also had several cordial meetings with Venezuela’s current brutal dictator, Nicolás Maduro.

    Monty, whats the effect of this massive population growth on GDP in Egypt?

    In May, Egypt’s national statistics agency, the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (Capmas) announced that Egypt’s population had officially hit 93 million. The agency had previously said the population was expanding at a rate of 1 million people every six months.

    Major General Abu Bakr al-Gendy, the head of Capmas, said the figures are of grave concern. “Overpopulation is a disaster in Egypt,” he said. “There has been always the debate as to whether overpopulation is a blessing or a curse. In our case, it’s absolutely a curse.”

    Surely the stimulus of a million people every 6 months should see them streaking ahead of Australia in living standards any day now?

    How does ethnic cleansing and the forced expulsion of everyone who isn’t white suddenly cancel out problematic differences but reinforce and amplify strengths, just by virtue of sameness?

    Ok, I’ll bite.

    It’s not about colour, it’s about culture. Race often defines culture, but not always, for instance I am no great fan of Germans, their culture is basically fucked, two world wars and now catching the rest of Europe in the crossfire while trying to blow their own brains out takes some doing.

    The importance of maintaining a largely homogeneous culture is that you don’t have serious schisms along which a society might fracture. How often have two separate cultures existed in the some place for extended periods only to wind up at each other’s throats? The great thing about Australia is that this hasn’t been a serious issue in the past, so now our idiotic government is working hard to “correct” this previously sensible approach.

    Diversity of culture only leads to conflict over trivial matters, high functioning teams and indeed countries cannot be culturally diverse, otherwise all their energy is expended on trivial matters. A culturally monochrome country can become wealthy (Japan), but a culturally diverse country cannot (Most of Africa and PNG, although PNG does have some chance if they manage to forge a unified PNG culture.). Note the amount of energy Singapore expends maintains and building a notion of “Singaporean” across diverse cultures and ethnic backgrounds. The Singaporeans are smart, they understand the importance of trying to monochrome culture in their country (This isn’t about food either FFS).

    When you don’t have cultural diversity, energy can then be expended on more productive things. The most productive teams have intellectual diversity and a diversity of experience, but not cultural diversity. Understanding the base premise of each other allows everyone to focus on the different views and perspectives of the task at hand.

    Please think about this Monty, the quality of your children’s lives hinges on this. We are in a slow motion train wreck, it’s not to late, but it is getting very close. If we can’t turn it around in the wake of Brexit and Trump, then we are done.
