Australia the anal country...

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I agree with you entirely. Having traveled a lot myself, I've also become acutely aware of how Australia (government, laws, police, airports, etc) straight up treats people like toddlers, because it doesn't seem to have anything else to stroke its ego with. "Border Security" anyone?

What work are you doing in china bot?

I agree there are lots of things about Australian culture that embaress this shite out of me. Namely the blatant racism and homophobia, as well as the ideal that Australia is above and beyond every other country. The taking for granted what we have here, an the ideal that people from other country's/cultures don't deserve what we have. I used to enjoy the "mateship" and "hard yakka" culture of times gone by, but it appears to me that this is rapidly disappearing from our culture, where people are really out for themselves and are quite happy to sit back and watch others do the work. The "hard yakka" lifestyle seems now to be allocated to the more "lower class" citizens, while the social manipulators, and the knockers, back stabbers seem to be those that will get ahead in most aspects of Australian life. Ime.. Most Aussies are superficial c...s.

Best rant EVER. Well, so far this year. Bring it on!

I particularly hate the anti-smokers who will attack you in any way they can, in the most disgustingly self-righteous manner. Also the anti-environmentalists, the aggressive alcohol swigging yobbos, the self-serving controllers who want to make the rules to bind us all, anyone who is anti-me basically. There are quite a few. And I'm a nice guy!

I think that whole "Lucky Country" thing lends people to mental laziness. That and beach baking, fryes yer braynes reel good.

The only thing I take exception to in your rant, please excuse me for this pedantry, but your spelling of the word "ridiculous". Can I take self-righteous offense at the basic illiteracy of most Aussies? Where I was brought up, back in the good old Kingdom United, we would never tolerate such heinous abuse of our graceful language :wink: .

Best thing to do when attacked by such self-righteousness is to laugh back. It's really great when they lose the plot, they are so helpless in their rage (except perhaps at airports, disdainfully looking down your nose might be more appropriate, if just to save your nether end some serious embarrassment).

Anyways, lucky you aren't going to America mate, cause you'd never get in with that old passport of yours.

I have a suspicion that this is a direct result of being nannied all the time.

Everyone's being told what they can and can't do all the time, being forced to suppress things and act out of character, it's no wonder half the people you meet at the pub are fucking time bombs

Same. Australia's not too bad though, I come from Birmingham which is way rougher than most of Sydney and the rural areas of Oz. Or at least, nowadays I get into less trouble.

[edit] "to combat binge drinking" and "young aggressive drinkers". right

Nah ww I was having a bitch and a half ;)

Aussie land ain't that bad :)

It's good to go os and touch wood on how easy we have it here. I'm sure every country has its pros and cons, differing in each regional area you travel to. The Wild West is getting me down a little of late, I just need to raise the bar so to speak, or at least learn to accept people for who they are. Equal amounts in column a and column

B I would say. The political environment in aus at the moment is nothing short of adolescent though I believe.

Yeah the political stuff is unbelievable. It's more adolescent in parliament itself than outside though :wink: I can't believe some of the shit that the Liberals spout.

And labour are so retarded. The Greens so weak. And people still care about this shit, and it really is shit because it's all about money, and if ain't about money it's about control.

Ideals and morals are pretty short for these guys. It's actually a really sad thing how poor politics are here, Australia has so much potential, and none of that history to hold it back - all they do is play follow my leader to the rest of the west and piss about.

Some of the best work is done by the civil servants. They don't get a mention.
