Australia's population, most of whom have their origins as boat people, have become some of the most xenophobic societies in the world, and that is no exaggeration!

Xenophobia is defined as "a deep dislike of foreigners". So people in Australia are not just xenophobes but also racists.

Racism is defined as "a belief in the superiority of a particular race: prejudice based on this", "antagonism towards other races, especially as a result of this".

What is race?  Race is defined as "each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics."

The people who landed in Australia in 1788 were colonisers from Britain and they found people living in Australia who were dark-skinned, who looked and sounded different from themselves, and behaved differently as well. So a form of racism originated and has intensified over the years.

Australians behave towards the indigenous population in 2014 in the same way as white South Africans behaved towards the indigenous South African populations from 1652, when the first colonists arrived, to 1994, when officially, the apartheid government of white South Africa came to an end.

Tony Abbott and previous prime ministers have "declared war" on people having the cheek to try and get out of their countries which have been destroyed by Australia making war in those countries, rendering them and some of their inhabitants' places of residence unliveable.

However, they have joined the ranks of the "untermenschen" from the Third Reich's attack on Europe's populations in the 1930s and 1940s.

The media in Australia have helped respective governments to demonise people seeking asylum by expressions such as "illegal immigrants" and other choice phrases.

Much more along these lines and we will turn into a police state - and then enter the dark waters of fascism - it doesn't take much from one step to another when we use "war" terminology for our actions in relation to people who are demonised at every turn and when governments refuse to tell the population what is actually going on. The previous government was well on the way too, by sending asylum seekers to remote countries to be locked in concentration camps and then refusing to give any information and not allowing the media - pathetic as they are anyway  - to enter and report on their findings, particularly after reports of abuse by the people running the concentration camps managed to leak their way out.
