That’s the advice of the Australian Institute for
Troglodytes Progress via The Australian today:
There are only three ways Australia can pay its public debt. Either both sides of politics agree there will be no new net spending until such time as the national debt has been dealt with, or deny the vote to all those who pay no taxes.
…There is a third way. Go full bore popular and win big. Australia is sucking in too many of the wrong type of immigrant. This can be fixed and would be popular. There is no doubt many Australians have considerable misgivings about Muslim immigration and the ability of many to fit in.
Almost 70 per cent of Australians are in favour of a strong immigration intake, but Australians are strongly divided over the content of the intake.
…Many Muslims in those countries are illiberal. Their values are inconsistent with liberal Australia.
Until now, Australia has chosen immigrants mainly on the basis of language and employment skills. But even educated people may harbour thoughts and practices inimical to Australia.
…Where multiculturalism clashes with the security of Australians it has little chance of remaining public policy. In a liberal society, the only quibble is how to arrive at the point of abandonment.
Selective immigration that explicitly cuts Islamic migrants would not enhance Australian security. It would do the opposite as the local Muslim population was marginalised, became quite understandably defensive, and stopped giving up angry young men.
Would this national policy vandalism win back One Nation voters, which is its clear object? Nope. That party hates Asian immigration just as much as Muslim and it is the lived experience of falling living standards driven by the population ponzi that is at the base of its popularity. Substituting Muslims for boat people as the national enemy while holding open the front door to Chinese and Indians is a deeply poisonous proposition.
The entire immigration level must be cut on the basis of the economic damage it is doing. Picking on any one group is dangerously close to fascism.
