it's shocking to hear of so many people fleeing Syria and other countries.
what kind of world is this where they are turned away.
meanwhile in Australia, our borders are shamefully, effectively closed to
refugees, our prime minister is now considering supporting US with air
strikes in Syria and his 'border force' team are planning on checking
everyone's visas in Melbourne CBD on the weekend. it's like they think
we're in 1939 Germany or something.
I hope something can be done to help the refugees. it seems like a forced
population shift is going on atm
I haven't read the philosophers' take on it all.
