    Those of different race or colour, who say they are treated unfairly under the law, must realise they cannot have their cake and eat it too.
    To have the same rights and privileges as others, they must behave as others do, and blend in to society.
    They cannot behave deplorably, and expect to be treated the same as those who behave peacefully.
    They cannot have it both ways.
    No australian citizen should claim advantage over another, because of family lineage.
    Whatever their origins, Australian citizens have the right to be treated equally.

    I have seen news items decrying the disproportionate incarceration of certain ‘types’ of persons.
    The remedy is quite simple.
    These people must comply with the law as other people do.
    We don’t all like the law. We see some laws as petty or downright unfair.
    But we comply with the law, because we live in a democracy, and democracy is an institution worth supporting and promoting.
    Where there is genuine unfairness, society actively pursues change.
    This change has been dramatic over the last fifty years.
    So it doesn’t make sense for some to come crying that they are unfairly targeted because of their ancestral roots.
    It seems to me they are digging a hole for themselves, and it is getting deeper and deeper.
    They should comply with the law like everybody else: problems will then disappear.
    All citizens must accept the will of the majority, and not try to set themselves apart.
