Oh boy! Sydney 1966

Screen Australia has released a short documentary about life in Sydney that was filmed in the mid 1960s. Australian readers in particular are likely to enjoy it.

  1. It's like a dream. Makes you realise how far we've come since then. How far downhill, that is.

  2. This is going to make me depressed. We are well on our way to becoming like Brazil.

  3. Well I didn't get depressed. That was amazing. I've spread this video far and wide. Everyone who sees it is amazed at how idyllic it is.
    I've sent it to overseas people who have said they wish they were there, I have to explain to them that it isn't like that now, oh dear...

  4. This film just shows how mass immigration and "diversity" can destroy a society.

    Just consider what a warm, pleasant, well-ordered, genteel society Australia was back in the 1960s when Australia was still overwhelmingly white and homogeneous. As we can see in this film, Sydney back then was a paradise, a model city.

    Now look at Sydney. It is an overcrowded, divided, crime-ridden, unsafe, multicultural mess.

    Our political establishment inflicted this upon us. They opened the floodgates to mass non-European immigration, forever transforming Australia for the worst. They have a lot to answer for.

  5. "forever transforming Australia for the worst"?

    I don't think it has to be that way, and yes I know what reality looks like right now.

    Remember, though, that after world war II, there were mass repatriations after it became apparent that certain ethnic groups just didn't get along within the same borders.

    If we are right, and by all evidence we are, ethnic differences are only compounded between races. If there was a good enough argument to repatriate the Germans en masse, I would think there would be a good enough argument to repatriate, say, Muslims, Africans etc.

  6. So... it doesn't look like that now?

    Serious question!

  7. No it does not look like that now.

    And even pointing this out is considered evidence of an evil mind.

    Sorry, but homogenity itself is necessary but not the only condition needed.
    My society is still very homogenous but crime rates are rising and prisons are becoming overcrowded.

  10. When I hear people talking about wanting a place that "looks like the world" I point out that white people are around ten percent of the world's population. I then ask them the two following questions:

    A) Do you want the US to be ninety percent non-white?
    B) Since the current white population is around 200 million would your rather this be reduced to 30 million? Or would you increase the population of nonwhites by 1.7 billion?

    Fair questions, given the initial statements.
