Australia & asylum seekers: The myths and the facts


Dispel the myths, share this with people you know.

People who hold opinions that are not on the side of compassion, should put extra effort into understanding that for which their comments  represent. Succinctly put “Any position which refuses to extend compassion to one or more parties has the greater obligation to demonstrate the facts than of one that holds compassion as the default position”

You could call this an ethical version of the scientific axiom “Extraordinary claims demand Extra ordinary evidence”

I have had a gut full of this surface level opinion about Asylum seekers which is almost totally based on ignorance. Unfortunately I doubt the ignorant will even read this, how do you think they became ignorant in the first place ?
