Australia is combining natural resources, fantastic weather and.. good weather..
As for people?
«This machine is so easy that it takes only one Australian man to operate this..» — from Futurama.
How much does it take for an Australian man to tell others that he is an idiot? They do pretty often but behind each other’s back! This «tolerance» is confused with ignorance. It is easy to ignore the problem and «fake it till you make it «rather than solve it. The result of faking is that everybody is fake for life, and nobody does the job! Everybody eventually feeds each other with crap, pathetically faking that they respect each other. While you are trying hard faking, those who barely can do the job come and take on your country without fighting.
Why ignorance is comfortable:
1. An idiot may feel good about himself without actually trying to fix nonsense.
2. By comparing themselves with somebody worst, people may laugh and feel better about themselves. For example, sitcoms are popular because losers can watch imaginary idiots and feel better without doing anything.
Idiots may create a circle of friends or subculture to share the same delusion. A localised world of comfortable escapism may be created.
Nonproductive lies consume energy and must be supported from the outside.
Conditions for stable delusion are:
1. Constant incoming flow of power such as natural resources, foreign labour. Most of consumed energy spent to support bs in order to attract more energy (losers) and consume (produce) more bs.
2. A supporter for delusions must be present. Therefore a subject for bullying must always be present. Strangers (freaks or «outsider» or «fresher») must be protected by law. Immigration policy must be tough to stop more parasites from getting in. Children as a source of fresh, natural idiots must be protected before being used.
Eventually, you will face the consequences of the ignored problem.
For example, you may say that smoking is ok or even cool, but eventually, you will get sick or die. It may take time for consequences to take place. The time may be long enough for someone, not you, to pay your bill.
People may have to consume a lot of substances to keep delusional. Reducing health that way they quickly increase their suffering.
Therefore such passive consumption and escapism my work for a long time before natural resources run out, or ecological disaster strikes.So next time you see somebody does something stupid – tell him! He may say something helpful in reply to you :) and be thankful later.
