The Stats Guy: Increase in Indigenous population a proud moment for Australia

There is plenty of work to be done to close the gap, but the trend is going in the right direction.

Simon Kuestenmacher

Earlier in the week I was able to have a sneak peak at the Census data. The joys of writing a column include getting embargoed press releases the night before data is officially launched.

One figure, more than anything else, jumped out at me. Australia’s Indigenous population went up steeply to 813,000 people (3.2 per cent of the population).

This increase of 25 per cent compared to 2016 data is huge. Obviously, this increase can’t, by definition, be driven by migration and wasn’t the result of an outrageously high birth rate either. Rather, more people self-identified as Indigenous on the census form.

Social progress always feels painfully slow for the relevant cohort but zooming out, looking at longitudinal data, allows us to be much more optimistic about societal trends.

We collectively created an environment where more people are confident enough to proclaim their heritage loudly and proudly.

There is plenty of work to be done to close the gap, but the trend is going in the right direction.

Let’s have a look at what the census data teaches us about the Indigenous population in Australia. This journey through the data shows how big the gap is, but it also shows that we are making progress.

… There is still a 16 per cent household income gap. The median Indigenous household takes home \$78,000 per year, while the median figure in Australia lies at \$91,000. Same story as with the age data – there is a big gap but it’s narrowing.

Indigenous incomes grew faster (+25 per cent) over the past five years than the Australian average (+21 per cent). …

In contrast to Billy Wilder’s line for Greta Garbo in Ninotchka, “The last mass trials were a great success. There are going to be fewer but better Russians!” the Australian Establishment’s theory seems to be to concoct more but better Aborigines.

    Do you think this is because signing up as a Native American is increasingly restricted by tribes trying to keep the membership rolls tight so as to avoid diluting gambling revenues?

    The Native American population in the US has almost doubled since 2010. according to the 2020 census the Native American population has now reached 10 million. Back in 2010 we only counted 5.2 million Indians in America.

    The American Indian population is growing at a faster rate than any other demographic and at the current growth rate the Native American population will soon surpass the African American population here in the United States.

    LRC:

    Officially there are three tests to be regarded as an Aborigine for government purposes, and all three must be met:
    1. Must have at least one Aboriginal ancestor (ie, was living in Australia before 1788). The proportion of Aboriginal ancestry - however low - the claimant has does not matter.
    2. Most regard oneself as Aboriginal.
    3. Must be regarded as Aboriginal by an Aboriginal organisation (in effect, an organisation that the government regards as an Aboriginal organisation, so starting one's own such organistion won't work).

    There are many quite pale Aborigines who probably have always qualified on requirement 1 but regarded themselves as white Australians until recently; but now have decided to meet requirements 2 and 3, either for ideological reasons or to get some of the Abo-only moolah on offer from the government. This accounts for most of the increase in numbers seen in census stats.

    There are also persons with zero Aboriginal ancestry who claim it for the same reasons, and in some circumstances can get away with it. For example, there are health centres that provide medical care free of charge for Aborigines - but since the staff are not permitted to question would-be patients about their Aboriginality, anyone can turn up and ask for free healthcare. (As all Australians have access to more-or-less free medical care anyway, this isn't actually rorted very much.)

    Not everyone was so delighted by the increase, however.

    Nathan Moran, the chief executive of the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council, said the census increase demonstrated the need for an official review into Aboriginal self-identification.

    Rather than the current question – which asks respondents whether they are of “Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin” – he wants the ABS to ask: “Are you a verified or authenticated Aboriginal person?”

    “I think the ABS question is misleading, not productive and ineffective,” he said. “This has caused a skewing in the number of Aboriginal people. It creates, for some, the illusion that we have a much larger population than practical reality.”

    The good news is, once we've all self-identified as indigineous we'll be getting more land handed over to us:

    Being a descendant of transported convicts has always been regarded as interesting in Australia.

    It's completely different for identifying as an Aborigine or Torres Strait Islander. Only the black ones laugh at the white ones and only if they don't know about real family connections. [email protected]

  14. Who wouldn’t identify as an indiginey these days. The benefits to be had are too great to ignore. I tell my boys all the time to tick the box on any job application should they be asked. A lot of people here who have their hands out look whiter than me. And I’m sure employers aren’t allowed to question whether you are or not. Maybe they could sack you later if somebody dobbed you in though.
    The numbers of blacks has to rise though because quite often the young are reproducing from an early age, often with multiple sperm donors. They seem to go for quantity, not quality. All collecting the government payments for years to come of course.
    There are companies that make big, political statements about employing them, and to lift them out of poverty. Catchy jingos like “closing the gap”, “stolen generation”,”survival day”, “ first nations people “. One inane saying after another. But it all usually falls by the wayside once it’s realised just how lazy and unreliable they are. They really are a protected species. I have never seen one working in a store. Soon I expect to see a law where everyone has to have a pet black to pander to.
    Picture this story that explains the plight of the abo only too well. I was walking my boys home from school and one of the local black kids walked with us as well. My boys were telling me about their latest report cards. One had missed one day and the other no sick days. The neighbour’s kid told us how he missed 32 days of school. He wagged six weeks of education in one semester. If your race is already starting from behind the eight ball, how can you afford to be that indifferent to the education of one of your own?

    To add on some further comments from another Australian:
    - It is a "one drop" or "lineal descent" rule across the board (as opposed to the mishmash of 'blood quantum' rules as in the US).
    - No genetic or other objective test requirement exists - partly because Aboriginal groups themselves are reluctant to acknowledge the legitimacy of those types of tests for various pragmatic reasons. The last time I checked, some of the major genetic testing companies cannot offer good estimates of Aboriginal ancestry due to lack of data.
    - Third party Aboriginal identity verification is administered by Aboriginal groups / communities themselves, which are often 'grass-roots' organisations (with the variable standards of assessment that would imply).
    - Some have obvious incentives to admit more members, others do not. Anecdata I have heard is that the process is generally honest - people get their applications rejected if they cannot provide much more than family gossip.
    - Government departments are chronically behind their indigenous employment targets, thus are not incentivised to question people too heavily or audit the processes. So the bottleneck to formal recognition is the Aboriginal organisations in my view.

    It seems to me that for a long time in the US it has been fashionable to claim native ancestry, but this is a relatively new phenomenon in Australia. The census is a survey and visibility of white-presenting aboriginals has increased over the last decade (the tennis player Ash Barty is the first genuinely famous example that springs to mind, and human interest 'Aboriginal person does X' stories of the type featured on iSteve have increased). That said, here are plenty of old family stories about a salacious liaison out in the back shed or a baby dropped on the doormat, and the 'stolen generation' was a real thing.

  20. I hope Australia can reach 100% indigenousness by mid-century. Then they could do away with all the paperwork, as EVERYONE will be entitled to a hand-up together.

    In America, there had been a lot of turnover in Indigenous Peoples, many of them in the same spot even, over the centuries before the White Man. We should give this place back to them before they get too Indignant.

    So I understand. The northern Abos hadn't been totally isolated from the world because of the passage of Tories Straits Islanders back and forward to New Guinea, and occasional visits from Indonesian fishermen. Nonetheless they were vulnerable to Old World diseases.

    And New World disease: the Tasmanian Abos almost disappeared partly because the men sold their wives as prostitutes to visiting whalers, whereby they became infected (with syphilis) and sterile.

    Fortunately many of the whalers were American so this sad episode can be blamed on Trump.

    Yes, I was being snarky. And yes, I should have used "Native American" to make the word play better.

    But no, I certainly do not your "one should look up the definition" advice. I respect the American Indians for getting here and doing their hunter-gatherer thing for thousands of years without suffering minoritarian guilt trips ("would you like another arrow with that?") or being gender confused. They are part of American history and culture.

    But, I'm not confused about who created and built America--drove off the Indians, cleared and planted the land, built up our industry, founded our republic and instituted rule-of-law--my people. I.e. the people who did all the stuff that has made America so enticing to other people. The people under continuous minoritarian assault and attempted replacement.

    I hope Australia can reach 100% indigenousness by mid-century. Then they could do away with all the paperwork, as EVERYONE will be entitled to a hand-up together.

    In America, there had been a lot of turnover in Indigenous Peoples, many of them in the same spot even, over the centuries before the White Man. We should give this place back to them before they get too Indignant.

    Not everyone was so delighted by the increase, however.

    Nathan Moran, the chief executive of the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council, said the census increase demonstrated the need for an official review into Aboriginal self-identification.

    Rather than the current question – which asks respondents whether they are of “Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin” – he wants the ABS to ask: “Are you a verified or authenticated Aboriginal person?”

    “I think the ABS question is misleading, not productive and ineffective,” he said. “This has caused a skewing in the number of Aboriginal people. It creates, for some, the illusion that we have a much larger population than practical reality.”

    The good news is, once we’ve all self-identified as indigineous we’ll be getting more land handed over to us:

    So I understand. The northern Abos hadn’t been totally isolated from the world because of the passage of Tories Straits Islanders back and forward to New Guinea, and occasional visits from Indonesian fishermen. Nonetheless they were vulnerable to Old World diseases.

    And New World disease: the Tasmanian Abos almost disappeared partly because the men sold their wives as prostitutes to visiting whalers, whereby they became infected (with syphilis) and sterile.

    Fortunately many of the whalers were American so this sad episode can be blamed on Trump.

    If all the white Americans who are genetically 0.2% American Indian self-identify as Indian we already have 60 million Native Americans in the US today. The vast majority of whites with some Indian ancestry still identify as white.

    So it could occur over the next 20 years due to the flight from white...The Native American population grew 50% from 2000 to 2010, and 100% from 2010 to 2020 and may well increase 150% over the next decade to reach 25 million by 2030 and 60 million by 2030.

    If Hispanics start to self-Identify as Native American the change will be faster. Of the 65 million Hispanic Americans less than 10% self-identify as Native American , yet most of them are more Native American ancestry than the typical Indian tribal members. But there is less incentive for Hispanics to identify as Indian , since they already get affirmative action for being Hispanic.

  40. It’s increasing in Canada too.

    New demographic projections suggest that the Indigenous identity population in Canada, which has grown steadily in recent decades, is projected to continue to increase between now and 2041.

    The Indigenous population in Canada, which includes First Nations, Métis and Inuit, was estimated at 1,800,000 in 2016, and could reach 2,495,000 in 2041 under the low-growth scenario, 2,848,000 under the medium-growth scenario, and 3,182,000 under the high-growth scenario.

    Two main factors are behind the higher growth of the Indigenous population in the coming years: higher fertility and changes in the self-reporting of Indigenous identity over a person’s lifetime, with some individuals newly self-identifying as Indigenous in the census, a trend that has continued over time.

    https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-quotidien/211006/dq211006a-eng.htm

  41. “some individuals newly self-identifying as Indigenous in the census, a trend that has continued over time.”

    But how many new aboriginals are like Elizabeth Warren Indian? The fashion to become somebody else may be corroding statistical comparisons.

  42. Whenever you see an aboriginal activist, you’ll note that he doesn’t look very aboriginal. Most activists appear to be mixed race.
    The simplest explanation for the increase in the numbers of indigenous is that people who are one quarter indigenous are now happy to admit it. There might even be advantages to label yourself as indigenous.
    Years ago, Aussies were embarrassed to admit that any of their ancestors were convicts. Now they are pleased to find an ancestor who stole a lamb in 1850

    I doubt that it’s trivially easy to change one’s status. I don’t know if aboriginal status creates benefits but I’d be surprised if it didn’t, based on the Canadian situation.

    In the Americas the native population initially crashed as Europeans brought new diseases. But that’s worn off by now, according to the Canadian situation.

  50. anon[174] • Disclaimer says:

    O/T, but I think it’s important.

    Steve has been one of the most prescient commenters in the whole public intellectual sphere for three decades and I admire him greatly.

    But now that the West is showing serious, active signs of decay and the horsemen are starting to show up, albeit elsewhere in the world so far, Steve basically got much of it wrong on the most important plague in the last 100 years and the most important war of the last 75.

    I’m just going to state here that I strongly suspect the main reason is Cochran. Cochran is a physicist and as close to a polymath as modern times can give us. He can be reasonably authoritative on many matters, eg the acceleration of human evolution under agriculture, the Darwinian unadaptiveness of homosexuality and the ruthless nature of the Corded Ware expansion. But he is a blowhard and a know-it-all; a very different person from Steve, who is personally, though not intellectually, very cautious; almost timid. Cochran finally realized the value of shutting up early in Covid, when his initial ideas went wrong, and to his credit he has continued to mostly shut his previously bragging mouth on the Ukraine war.

    Ultimately, a major source of Cochran’s false certainties is a sort of old-school American patriotism, including a belief in that Very Good War and the biggest lie of all, the foundation myth of the modern West, the Holocaust. Steve shares some of this patriotism, indeed it is the essence of his optimistic ‘Citizenism’ political philosophy.

    One cannot advance far in this society without getting to know many Jews, even some likable ones. Steve’s HBD discussion group was an admirable effort, but it eventually fell apart when it became obvious that almost all the Jews were going to circle the wagons and careerist goys like Dawkins would go nowhere near anything remotely threatening. A cautious person is naturally attracted to the ideas of a dogmatic person, and my impression is that beginning in those days, and increasing since, Steve found Cochran’s self-certainty on some big questions very attractive.

    I won’t lie: I dislike Cochran’s blowhard nature intensely, and I take pleasure that he’s been wrong so far on the degree of likelihood COVID would become more, rather than less, pathogenic, the essentially political/commercial nature of the vaccine push, and other aspects of the virus.

    That includes Cochran’s moral wrongness on the subject of dying octo- and nonagenarians: we needed to lose some of them. Like many ego-inflated physicists, he’s something of a transhumanist, quite a creepy reaction to mortality. As such, and at his age, his moral identification with the very elderly may be understood.

    Our evil leaders may yet make COVID worse, perhaps via a Marek-like evolutionary mechanism, but so far, Cochran has been wrong somewhat because ‘life will find a way’. Ie, events, including biological events, are hard to predict. Very ironic.

    The message is to go your own way more on the biggest issues, Steve. Being represented chiefly at a holocaust-skeptical site like Unz is good for that, though there are many days when I feel that the chief effect of the site is to allow Jews, hasbara and relative moderates to influence the most radical members of the college-educated right.

    For fuck’s sake. At least one person in addition to the author had ‘eyes on’.

    FWIW: the census doesn’t ask for any evidence regarding Abo/TI-ness.

    It’s a question on a form – a form that I have routinely refused to fill out, lo these last 5 censuses … if the parasitic cretins from .gov.au want me to do their work for them, then they need to fucking pay me – in advance.

    When it was paper-based I used to briefly scan it before I threw it in the bin, to see if there were any new questions. I think it’s mostly online now – and as usual, the data repository is basically porous (another reason why these cunts do not get a single byte of data from me that I furnish voluntarily or without consideration).

    In related news, there are government positions that are specifically advertised as being reserved for Abo/TI people. I’m indifferent about that – bureaucrats are inherently unproductive and are paid a significant integer multiple of their marginal value product, so AA hiring by the hopeless cunts at .gov.au does fuck-all to aggregate productivity.

    In a world where government could organise a fuck in a brothel, applicants for AboAA jobs would have to furnish some form of proof at some stage of the recruitment process. That’s not the world we live in, though.

    Yes, I was being snarky. And yes, I should have used “Native American” to make the word play better.

    But no, I certainly do not your “one should look up the definition” advice. I respect the American Indians for getting here and doing their hunter-gatherer thing for thousands of years without suffering minoritarian guilt trips (“would you like another arrow with that?”) or being gender confused. They are part of American history and culture.

    But, I’m not confused about who created and built America–drove off the Indians, cleared and planted the land, built up our industry, founded our republic and instituted rule-of-law–my people. I.e. the people who did all the stuff that has made America so enticing to other people. The people under continuous minoritarian assault and attempted replacement.

It is quite impossible that in the short time from leaving Israel and arriving in Sydney that the leaves could be covered in some sort of rust infection, suggesting the leaves were bio warfare materiel intended for destroying Australia’s fruit tree crops at some point.

    Customs wasn’t having any part of it, however, whereupon this Jew claimed he held legal status as an aboriginal and could prove it, since it was a matter of personal declaration, and therefore above arrest and prosecution. I never found out what happened to this man, but, unless things have changed, flights to and from Australia, including from the US, are noticeably filled with these Hasidic Jews colonizing Australia—as if the Jews don’t already own it lock, stock, and barrel.

    If Hispanics start to self-Identify as Native American the change will be faster. Of the 65 million Hispanic Americans less than 10% self-identify as Native American , yet most of them are more Native American ancestry than the typical Indian tribal members.

    A big reason the Native American population has increased 100% over since 2010 is due to genetic testing. I found out my DNA is 0.1% Native American which was not expected. Although my Paternal ancestors trace back to colonial days in Pennsylvania, we did not have any stories about being part Indian although it is certainly possible that one of my ancestors 300 years ago was Native American.

    @The Last Real Calvinist

    LRC:

    Officially there are three tests to be regarded as an Aborigine for government purposes, and all three must be met:
    1. Must have at least one Aboriginal ancestor (ie, was living in Australia before 1788). The proportion of Aboriginal ancestry - however low - the claimant has does not matter.
    2. Most regard oneself as Aboriginal.
    3. Must be regarded as Aboriginal by an Aboriginal organisation (in effect, an organisation that the government regards as an Aboriginal organisation, so starting one's own such organistion won't work).

    There are many quite pale Aborigines who probably have always qualified on requirement 1 but regarded themselves as white Australians until recently; but now have decided to meet requirements 2 and 3, either for ideological reasons or to get some of the Abo-only moolah on offer from the government. This accounts for most of the increase in numbers seen in census stats.

    There are also persons with zero Aboriginal ancestry who claim it for the same reasons, and in some circumstances can get away with it. For example, there are health centres that provide medical care free of charge for Aborigines - but since the staff are not permitted to question would-be patients about their Aboriginality, anyone can turn up and ask for free healthcare. (As all Australians have access to more-or-less free medical care anyway, this isn't actually rorted very much.)

    Replies: @angmoh

    To add on some further comments from another Australian:
    – It is a “one drop” or “lineal descent” rule across the board (as opposed to the mishmash of ‘blood quantum’ rules as in the US).
    – No genetic or other objective test requirement exists – partly because Aboriginal groups themselves are reluctant to acknowledge the legitimacy of those types of tests for various pragmatic reasons. The last time I checked, some of the major genetic testing companies cannot offer good estimates of Aboriginal ancestry due to lack of data.
    – Third party Aboriginal identity verification is administered by Aboriginal groups / communities themselves, which are often ‘grass-roots’ organisations (with the variable standards of assessment that would imply).
    – Some have obvious incentives to admit more members, others do not. Anecdata I have heard is that the process is generally honest – people get their applications rejected if they cannot provide much more than family gossip.
    – Government departments are chronically behind their indigenous employment targets, thus are not incentivised to question people too heavily or audit the processes. So the bottleneck to formal recognition is the Aboriginal organisations in my view.

    It seems to me that for a long time in the US it has been fashionable to claim native ancestry, but this is a relatively new phenomenon in Australia. The census is a survey and visibility of white-presenting aboriginals has increased over the last decade (the tennis player Ash Barty is the first genuinely famous example that springs to mind, and human interest ‘Aboriginal person does X’ stories of the type featured on iSteve have increased). That said, here are plenty of old family stories about a salacious liaison out in the back shed or a baby dropped on the doormat, and the ‘stolen generation’ was a real thing.

    They certainly look very primitive to the Western eye. And, i've seen those pictures of Abo skulls compared to modern human ones.

    I assume that most of this is divergent evolution--a lot, especially of mental traits, post-Neolithic revolution with settlement and ag. But it would be interesting to see some DNA parsing of the various out-of-Africa waves. Were later waves way more advanced in some capabilities, with structural differences compared to the early around-the-coast-to-Oz wave?

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry. The vast majority of the sailors in it came from just 3 places, New Bedford in Massachusetts, and the islands of Martha's Vinyard and Nantucket. Just about everybody in the whaling industry was related to each other or knew each other socially as friends. And you know what? Due to a peculiarity of history, most of these whalers were Quakers. They were the enlightened leftists of their day. Even Daniel Webster, their congressman, thought this cluster of his constituents were weirdly leftwing, and he liked to tell stories about them. They were abolitionists--they wanted to get rid of slavery--and were pro-women's rights back when almost no one had even heard of that sort of thing. In fact, their philosophy was one of the primary historical forces that got modern-day leftism going.

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry. The vast majority of the sailors in it came from just 3 places, New Bedford in Massachusetts, and the islands of Martha’s Vinyard and Nantucket. Just about everybody in the whaling industry was related to each other or knew each other socially as friends. And you know what? Due to a peculiarity of history, most of these whalers were Quakers. They were the enlightened leftists of their day. Even Daniel Webster, their congressman, thought this cluster of his constituents were weirdly leftwing, and he liked to tell stories about them. They were abolitionists–they wanted to get rid of slavery–and were pro-women’s rights back when almost no one had even heard of that sort of thing.

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry.
     
    For fuck's sake. Talk about a constrained world-view.

    Just let this seep in: the US whaling industry isn't the same as the GLOBAL whaling industry.

    The first two whaling ships in the seas off New Zealand[1] (turn right at Bass Strait from Straya's east coast) were the William and Ann and the Britannia, both in the early 1790s.

    Both ships went a-whalin' after dropping off their outbound cargo of convicts in the trendy new tourist destinations in Australia. Their home ports were Leith and London, respectively.

    There were also Russian, French and Portuguese whalers (and sealers) plying the waters in the region.

    None of these were likely to have been crewed by your far-thinking Yank Quakers, methinks.

    William and Ann's normal hunting ground was the Spitsbergen whaling grounds off the Svalbard archipelago near modern Norway, along with a goodly number of German and Dutch vessels. But she did at least 3 trips to carry convicts to Australia, and went whalin' after each 'drop-off'.

    It is not remotely implausible to hear tales of routine savagery towards Aborigines in the late 18th/early 19th century; the incoming 'settlers' did all sorts of inhumane things for sport (like decapitating the male, and making his wife wear the severed head on a string around her neck for a while; or cutting off the man's dick & balls, and watching him bleed out).

    The stories one hears about whalers in Bass Strait, are of a piece with the well-documented stories of this type from the time - taken from people's own diaries and correspondence (sometimes - but not always - giving first-person accounts).

    That doesn't mean that every white person did this sort of thing, or that a significant majority weren't horrified - although the government was not remotely interested in prosecuting any of the perpetrators, so it's unlikely that there was a groundswell of support for protection of the poor black bastards.

    So to the extent that 'the people' are morally responsible for the actions of their governments, the Australian people carry a significant moral debt.

    The fact that Aborigines are cognitively and behaviorally unsuited to the Western way of life doesn't mitigate - in fact it makes it worse, in the same way that it's worse to claim that it's OK to abuse retarded children because they're not 'fully human', than it is to abuse 'normal' children.


    [1] New Zealand doesn't exist. Don't try to go there. It's entirely imaginary, and nobody wants Yanks there anyhow.

It is quite impossible that in the short time from leaving Israel and arriving in Sydney that the leaves could be covered in some sort of rust infection, suggesting the leaves were bio warfare materiel intended for destroying Australia’s fruit tree crops at some point.

    Customs wasn’t having any part of it, however, whereupon this Jew claimed he held legal status as an aboriginal and could prove it, since it was a matter of personal declaration, and therefore above arrest and prosecution. I never found out what happened to this man, but, unless things have changed, flights to and from Australia, including from the US, are noticeably filled with these Hasidic Jews colonizing Australia—as if the Jews don’t already own it lock, stock, and barrel.

    For fuck's sake. At least one person in addition to the author had 'eyes on'.

    FWIW: the census doesn't ask for any evidence regarding Abo/TI-ness.

    It's a question on a form - a form that I have routinely refused to fill out, lo these last 5 censuses ... if the parasitic cretins from .gov.au want me to do their work for them, then they need to fucking pay me - in advance.

    When it was paper-based I used to briefly scan it before I threw it in the bin, to see if there were any new questions. I think it's mostly online now - and as usual, the data repository is basically porous (another reason why these cunts do not get a single byte of data from me that I furnish voluntarily or without consideration).

    In related news, there are government positions that are specifically advertised as being reserved for Abo/TI people. I'm indifferent about that - bureaucrats are inherently unproductive and are paid a significant integer multiple of their marginal value product, so AA hiring by the hopeless cunts at .gov.au does fuck-all to aggregate productivity.

    In a world where government could organise a fuck in a brothel, applicants for AboAA jobs would have to furnish some form of proof at some stage of the recruitment process. That's not the world we live in, though.

    No information entrusted to government is 'secure' by any normal definition of the word.

    With reference specifically to the census, the track record of the Australian Bureau of Statistics on matters census-y is best expressed in the hashtag #CensusFail which has been doing the rounds since the last census in 2016, when typical government procurement corruption fuckups led to
     • IBM being given the contract;
     • IBM then implementing cybersecurity at sub-uDemy levels of skill;
     • ABS getting egg on its face and spending money trying to convince the schlubs that the fuckups were a 'foreign state actor DDoS' rather than pure incompetence and inadequate - but hyper-costly - resourcing; and lastly
     • unknown and unknowable levels of residual infiltration of ABS systems.

    A sensible adversary that gets into a compromised backend, does not get some goodies and then leave.

    A sensible adversary gets the goodies, and leaves behind some code fragments that later enable access to the same hardware.

    Done right, access is more or less in perpetuity - including cross-infecting internal networks in ways that survive the entire network's routing infrastructure being replaced.

    And when it's known that supposed constraints regarding data-sharing between government agencies (and between Federal and State governments) are bullshit, it's clear that the infection can be spread to State agencies as well. For example: the [Federal] Australian Electoral Commission 'knows' when you change your address with [State-level] VicRoads - so there's an obvious data-exchange happening, so there's a 'pipe' between the two systems.

    This is why every byte of data held by the Australian government - on any citizen - can be had for less than the cost of
     • 2 Domino's [absolutely shit] pizzas, or
     • one nice Super Supreme with hot salami, extra cheese and double anchovies (from a proper wog pizzeria staffed by proper wogs rather than pajeets).

    When governments pay a fortune for consulting-firm dickheads with 'cybersecurity analyst' on their business cards, they are not getting genuine talent - is what I'm sayin'.

    They certainly look very primitive to the Western eye. And, i’ve seen those pictures of Abo skulls compared to modern human ones.

    I assume that most of this is divergent evolution–a lot, especially of mental traits, post-Neolithic revolution with settlement and ag.

    She was in her 40s, actually.

    American Indians (her preferred term) have Asian input, but her math skills were pretty weak. She was no Tiger Mother, that's for sure.

    Here she is at 70. (She stopped dyeing and curling her hair in her early 80s. By that time the first signs of Alzheimer's were showing up. She died at 91.) On this occasion she went light on the bling:



    https://i.ibb.co/f0Y4jCT/2000-04-10.jpg

    She had dozens and dozens of pairs of big glasses in every color, all made to prescription.

    Her jewelry collection was formidable. It was not unheard of for her to go to the supermarket with a ring on every finger. A family friend liked to joke that she was the long-lost twin of Elizabeth Taylor.

    My grandfather once complained to my mother that he could never buy her off with jewelry: "If your mother ever gets angry at me, all I have to do is buy her a gold necklace and all is forgiven. Your sister is the same way. But you ... I can never figure out what the hell you want." (Neither can I.)

    Grandma could be stern but she could also be sweet and on occasion she could even be fun. She never drank, but one time on a family trip to Disney World she ordered some spiked lemonade at a restaurant and really cut loose. After that my uncle always called her "funky Grandma."

    She had one of those big cabinet-sized record players. Her favorites were Elvis, the Beach Boys, and Bruce Springsteen. (She turned the volume up as high as it could go. On many a Saturday morning I awoke to the strains of "Can't Help Falling in Love." Even now I tear up thinking about it.) She attended a Springsteen concert in her 70s and squealed like a schoolgirl when he pointed directly at her.

    At Christmastime she liked to play an old LP put out by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. My favorite was "O Holy Night."

    Whether that qualifies as "acclimating to white norms," I can't say.

    As for the shooting, well, I lived 20 miles north of highland park a few years ago and know the area well.

    Some of the houses there are extraordinary.

    This dude's house seemed more blah by comparison.

    The rich kids there live dull, boring, but very safe and non-violent lives.

    You can tell by his FACE TATTOOS that he was not quite one of them. He must have had at least one friend to do his videoing for him but overall it looks like life took a big shit on him and he figured he would fling some shit back.

    As for guns:

    Ideally? No guns on planet earth. Hell, no weapons or technology stronger than sticks.

    Great. That out of the way, what to do?

    One option would be repealing the second amendment.

    What happens then?

    Depends..So we have a government willing to take guns from blacks too? On the one hand even Trump isn't strong enough to do it, on the other hand, even 5 foot Bloomberg is strong enough. So, I would say that yes, it can be done.

    What about being protected from the government?

    LOL.

    The government imprisons a dozen innocent people every day, hell, maybe 5 dozen. No one knows and no one cares and guns have not saved any of them (excepting a couple of ranchers near Mesquite, Nevada a few years ago).

    But doesn't *the threat* of guns in many hands keep the government at bay from inflicting harm on the country as a whole?

    The only good argument I heard along those lines was that in America there was never any actual Lockdown of the sort that there was in Australia and New Zealand. And for that we owe our guns.

    Maybe.

    But down under they were also given a living wage during the entirety of the lockdown while that was never on the table in America.

    I can absolutely see why a nation might acquiesce to such Faucism when they're getting paid for it. Even in America.

    So. Defeatist naysaying aside (e.g. "They'll never imprison as many blacks as necessary to get all their guns") what actually happens if they repeal /replace the second amendment?

    I personally know plenty of gun fanatics who claim they would revolt. But the fact is, that lacking a proper leader they will do no such thing. Witness the millions and millions of Americans who said they would not take the vax under any circumstances, and then went ahead and did it anyway. And witness how those who actually stood by their principles, simply got fired and that was the end of the story.

    So, guns.

    A. Do they do any good?

    B. What happens if America follows the example of Australia and now Canada and other, even more serious countries, and does away with guns?

    HUGE numbers of lives will be saved (including a large number of children). What else? Will we really be subject to stricter faucism?

    My own bias is as anti-government as possible. I oppose drivers licenses. So you can be sure that I have no plan to vote to repeal one of the Bill of Rights.

    But I'm starting to see the wisdom in doing so.

    Killing yes. Defeat/kill the men and enjoy the women is as old as the hills. But why castrate dudes--pissing them off--if you are not taking them as slaves, but leaving them alive on the island?

    If you tell me some whalers grabbed up a few Bass Islanders--i assume we are talking about the South Pacific here, not Ohio--and castrated them to make them tractable as deck hands, ok. Weird. But at least there's some sort of point.

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry. The vast majority of the sailors in it came from just 3 places, New Bedford in Massachusetts, and the islands of Martha's Vinyard and Nantucket. Just about everybody in the whaling industry was related to each other or knew each other socially as friends. And you know what? Due to a peculiarity of history, most of these whalers were Quakers. They were the enlightened leftists of their day. Even Daniel Webster, their congressman, thought this cluster of his constituents were weirdly leftwing, and he liked to tell stories about them. They were abolitionists--they wanted to get rid of slavery--and were pro-women's rights back when almost no one had even heard of that sort of thing. In fact, their philosophy was one of the primary historical forces that got modern-day leftism going.

    The notion that these Quakers went around castrating aborigines is utter claptrap. It's a fairy tale that modern-day liberals like to tell themselves.

    She was in her 40s, actually.

    American Indians (her preferred term) have Asian input, but her math skills were pretty weak. She was no Tiger Mother, that’s for sure.

    Here she is at 70. (She stopped dyeing and curling her hair in her early 80s. By that time the first signs of Alzheimer’s were showing up. She died at 91.) On this occasion she went light on the bling:

    [MORE]

    She had dozens and dozens of pairs of big glasses in every color, all made to prescription.

    Her jewelry collection was formidable. It was not unheard of for her to go to the supermarket with a ring on every finger. A family friend liked to joke that she was the long-lost twin of Elizabeth Taylor.

    My grandfather once complained to my mother that he could never buy her off with jewelry: “If your mother ever gets angry at me, all I have to do is buy her a gold necklace and all is forgiven. Your sister is the same way. But you … I can never figure out what the hell you want.” (Neither can I.)

    Grandma could be stern but she could also be sweet and on occasion she could even be fun. She never drank, but one time on a family trip to Disney World she ordered some spiked lemonade at a restaurant and really cut loose. After that my uncle always called her “funky Grandma.”

    She had one of those big cabinet-sized record players. Her favorites were Elvis, the Beach Boys, and Bruce Springsteen. (She turned the volume up as high as it could go. On many a Saturday morning I awoke to the strains of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Even now I tear up thinking about it.) She attended a Springsteen concert in her 70s and squealed like a schoolgirl when he pointed directly at her.

    At Christmastime she liked to play an old LP put out by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. My favorite was “O Holy Night.”

    Whether that qualifies as “acclimating to white norms,” I can’t say.

    In Australia Jewish politicians are remarkably rare. At present the only Jewish minister whose name comes to mind is Mark Dreyfus, our Attorney-General. I can't think of another current Jewish MP.

    Oddly enough, Jews were far more prominent in Australian politics in the colonial era (1850s to 1900), when they accounted for about 2 per cent of MPs despite being 0.4 per cent of the population (in 1901; that share of population is unchanged more than a century later).

    If all the white Americans who are genetically 0.2% American Indian self-identify as Indian we already have 60 million Native Americans in the US today. The vast majority of whites with some Indian ancestry still identify as white.

    So it could occur over the next 20 years due to the flight from white...The Native American population grew 50% from 2000 to 2010, and 100% from 2010 to 2020 and may well increase 150% over the next decade to reach 25 million by 2030 and 60 million by 2030.

    If Hispanics start to self-Identify as Native American the change will be faster. Of the 65 million Hispanic Americans less than 10% self-identify as Native American , yet most of them are more Native American ancestry than the typical Indian tribal members. But there is less incentive for Hispanics to identify as Indian , since they already get affirmative action for being Hispanic.

    Replies: @Travis

    according to 23andme Blacks on average have 0.8% Native American ancestry, so the number of Americans with Native American ancestry is already closer to 150 million people today. The average White American has an average 0.1% Native American Ancestry and Hispanics have on average 35% Native American ancestry

    A big reason the Native American population has increased 100% over since 2010 is due to genetic testing. I found out my DNA is 0.1% Native American which was not expected. Although my Paternal ancestors trace back to colonial days in Pennsylvania, we did not have any stories about being part Indian although it is certainly possible that one of my ancestors 300 years ago was Native American.

    What do you mean by the repository being porous? That your personal info isn’t secure?

    No information entrusted to government is ‘secure’ by any normal definition of the word.

    With reference specifically to the census, the track record of the Australian Bureau of Statistics on matters census-y is best expressed in the hashtag #CensusFail which has been doing the rounds since the last census in 2016, when typical government procurement corruption fuckups led to
     • IBM being given the contract;
     • IBM then implementing cybersecurity at sub-uDemy levels of skill;
     • ABS getting egg on its face and spending money trying to convince the schlubs that the fuckups were a ‘foreign state actor DDoS‘ rather than pure incompetence and inadequate – but hyper-costly – resourcing; and lastly
     • unknown and unknowable levels of residual infiltration of ABS systems.

    A sensible adversary that gets into a compromised backend, does not get some goodies and then leave.

    A sensible adversary gets the goodies, and leaves behind some code fragments that later enable access to the same hardware.

    Done right, access is more or less in perpetuity – including cross-infecting internal networks in ways that survive the entire network’s routing infrastructure being replaced.

    And when it’s known that supposed constraints regarding data-sharing between government agencies (and between Federal and State governments) are bullshit, it’s clear that the infection can be spread to State agencies as well. For example: the [Federal] Australian Electoral Commission ‘knows’ when you change your address with [State-level] VicRoads – so there’s an obvious data-exchange happening, so there’s a ‘pipe’ between the two systems.

    This is why every byte of data held by the Australian government – on any citizen – can be had for less than the cost of
     • 2 Domino’s [absolutely shit] pizzas, or
     • one nice Super Supreme with hot salami, extra cheese and double anchovies (from a proper wog pizzeria staffed by proper wogs rather than pajeets).

    When governments pay a fortune for consulting-firm dickheads with ‘cybersecurity analyst’ on their business cards, they are not getting genuine talent – is what I’m sayin’.

    Everyone NEEDS an AR-15 because that’s what the TPTB fear. Rifles are the People’s Combat Power.

    That’s why the State of Israel doesn’t want civilians to own rifles.

    And why politicals in the USA from CA, Highland Park, IL, NJ don’t want you to have combat effective modern rifles.

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry. The vast majority of the sailors in it came from just 3 places, New Bedford in Massachusetts, and the islands of Martha's Vinyard and Nantucket. Just about everybody in the whaling industry was related to each other or knew each other socially as friends. And you know what? Due to a peculiarity of history, most of these whalers were Quakers. They were the enlightened leftists of their day. Even Daniel Webster, their congressman, thought this cluster of his constituents were weirdly leftwing, and he liked to tell stories about them. They were abolitionists--they wanted to get rid of slavery--and were pro-women's rights back when almost no one had even heard of that sort of thing. In fact, their philosophy was one of the primary historical forces that got modern-day leftism going.

    The notion that these Quakers went around castrating aborigines is utter claptrap. It's a fairy tale that modern-day liberals like to tell themselves.

    Look, I know something about the US whaling industry.

    For fuck’s sake. Talk about a constrained world-view.

    Just let this seep in: the US whaling industry isn’t the same as the GLOBAL whaling industry.

    The first two whaling ships in the seas off New Zealand[1] (turn right at Bass Strait from Straya‘s east coast) were the William and Ann and the Britannia, both in the early 1790s.

    Both ships went a-whalin‘ after dropping off their outbound cargo of convicts in the trendy new tourist destinations in Australia. Their home ports were Leith and London, respectively.

    There were also Russian, French and Portuguese whalers (and sealers) plying the waters in the region.

    None of these were likely to have been crewed by your far-thinking Yank Quakers, methinks.

    William and Ann‘s normal hunting ground was the Spitsbergen whaling grounds off the Svalbard archipelago near modern Norway, along with a goodly number of German and Dutch vessels. But she did at least 3 trips to carry convicts to Australia, and went whalin‘ after each ‘drop-off’.

    It is not remotely implausible to hear tales of routine savagery towards Aborigines in the late 18th/early 19th century; the incoming ‘settlers’ did all sorts of inhumane things for sport (like decapitating the male, and making his wife wear the severed head on a string around her neck for a while; or cutting off the man’s dick & balls, and watching him bleed out).

    The stories one hears about whalers in Bass Strait, are of a piece with the well-documented stories of this type from the time – taken from people’s own diaries and correspondence (sometimes – but not always – giving first-person accounts).

    That doesn’t mean that every white person did this sort of thing, or that a significant majority weren’t horrified – although the government was not remotely interested in prosecuting any of the perpetrators, so it’s unlikely that there was a groundswell of support for protection of the poor black bastards.

    So to the extent that ‘the people’ are morally responsible for the actions of their governments, the Australian people carry a significant moral debt.

    The fact that Aborigines are cognitively and behaviorally unsuited to the Western way of life doesn’t mitigate – in fact it makes it worse, in the same way that it’s worse to claim that it’s OK to abuse retarded children because they’re not ‘fully human’, than it is to abuse ‘normal’ children.

    [1] New Zealand doesn’t exist. Don’t try to go there. It’s entirely imaginary, and nobody wants Yanks there anyhow.

    Who said anything about Jews?

    I'm talking about people who are disloyal to their fellow citizens. Yes, a lot of Jews revel in their disloyalty, in pissing on the goyim who actually built the nice nations they are middle manning. It's part of their whole us-them thing--specifically rejecting integration with the goyim in favor of their tribalism. That's why Jews are often in the ideological vanguard of shitting on Western nations. But they are hardly the only ones. There are lots of crappy people willing to sell out the interests of their fellow citizens--even their own children, posterity--for their immediate profit, power, status. Joe Biden comes to mind.

    I say "off with their heads". Well, actually I say "separate nations", but it's the same point: The normal productive people of a nation are entitled to live according to their norms, build and maintain their nation to pass on down to their children.

    As for guns:

    Ideally? No guns on planet earth. Hell, no weapons or technology stronger than sticks.

    Great. That out of the way, what to do?

    One option would be repealing the second amendment.

    What happens then?

    Depends..So we have a government willing to take guns from blacks too? On the one hand even Trump isn't strong enough to do it, on the other hand, even 5 foot Bloomberg is strong enough. So, I would say that yes, it can be done.

    What about being protected from the government?

    LOL.

    The government imprisons a dozen innocent people every day, hell, maybe 5 dozen. No one knows and no one cares and guns have not saved any of them (excepting a couple of ranchers near Mesquite, Nevada a few years ago).

    But doesn't *the threat* of guns in many hands keep the government at bay from inflicting harm on the country as a whole?

    The only good argument I heard along those lines was that in America there was never any actual Lockdown of the sort that there was in Australia and New Zealand. And for that we owe our guns.

    Maybe.

    But down under they were also given a living wage during the entirety of the lockdown while that was never on the table in America.

    I can absolutely see why a nation might acquiesce to such Faucism when they're getting paid for it. Even in America.

    So. Defeatist naysaying aside (e.g. "They'll never imprison as many blacks as necessary to get all their guns") what actually happens if they repeal /replace the second amendment?

    I personally know plenty of gun fanatics who claim they would revolt. But the fact is, that lacking a proper leader they will do no such thing. Witness the millions and millions of Americans who said they would not take the vax under any circumstances, and then went ahead and did it anyway. And witness how those who actually stood by their principles, simply got fired and that was the end of the story.

    So, guns.

    A. Do they do any good?

    B. What happens if America follows the example of Australia and now Canada and other, even more serious countries, and does away with guns?

    HUGE numbers of lives will be saved (including a large number of children). What else? Will we really be subject to stricter faucism?

    My own bias is as anti-government as possible. I oppose drivers licenses. So you can be sure that I have no plan to vote to repeal one of the Bill of Rights.

    But I'm starting to see the wisdom in doing so.

    The fact is if you identify as an Aboriginal you get access to a lot of \$ perks, that are denied to others.
    I have 2 cousins who by good luck were conceived via IVF sperm from a partly Aboriginal man; the lesbian mum didn’t know of that.
    So I gather the cousins are 1/8th Aboriginal. They are mostly Irish-Australians with a bit of English; ancestors going back 150-200+ years here. But because they ID as “Aboriginal” they had a golden road of benefits delivered to them. For example their law degrees were paid for by the government and by grants for “indigenous” Australians.
    Meanwhile “white” Australians – of multiple generations here – have to pay for those, to the tune of \$30,000 to 100,000+ [varying on how advanced they want to go].
    My cousins barely look “Aboriginal”. They are very good looking and I doubt they’ve ever heard a mean word about the 1/8th part of their Aboriginal ancestry.
    They’ve no doubt heard tons of mean words about the 7/8ths of “white” ancestry though.

    Do Jews have a significant role in Australia?

    Not really. Very over represented in wealth though. Nine of top 25 wealthiest Australians are Jewish.

    Jews -especially first or second generation in Australia Jews - or those who could have easily immigrated to Israel -hate with a vengeance the Old Anglo-Celtic dominant Australia .
    Every I Hate Australia movement seems to have these newcomer Jews - like Colin Tatz , a South African Jewish immigrant , at the forefront .

    The reservations need to be dismantled. Hell, we can even deed everyone on them a plot in fee simple. Then abolish the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

    The reservations are dysgenic sinks and unworkable anachronisms. If the injuns want to maintain their bloodlines and heritage, nobody's stopping them.

    Some leftist politicians might have a solution. Reservations can open abortion clinics in states like OK, FL, AZ. Some Indians get casinos…

    Yup.

    Women want to marry into a Tradition.

    Secularism had its day and that day is past. It hss devolved into whatever the latest tiktok craze happens to be.

    Girls who descend from 2 or 3 generations of seculars don't have a warm place in their heart for Christianity (hell, even the pope is embarrassed of being Catholic) so if they are intellectually put together they find Judaism attractive (and want their kids to have it in their heritage), see Chelsea and Ivanka.

    And if they are likely to feel uncomfortable at a dinner table of scientists and other literates they are likely to find Islamic heritage attractive. Not Burkha Islam generally, but something to tether them - and their kids - to a pre-twitter past.

    I think in these instances at least they married for Green -No, not the color of Islam – the Color of money.

    I used to travel from the US to Australia once or twice a year for years. Other than some president of a bank there and a Jewish home builder giving me some crap over dinner at Icebergs on Bondi Beach after too many cocktails, I never had a problem with the “hate America” thing. Yet, I heard many stories of Aussies shitting on Americans to the point that younger Americans out pub crawling would say they were Canadians, and that would mollify the Aussie berserkers.

    There was a TV show called Border Patrol, as I recall. In one episode I caught while over there, some repulsive, disgusting Hasidic Jew from Israel, a professor of law in Israel he said, was stopped going through customs in Sydney, having come directly from Israel. In his luggage was a suitcase filled with bags and bags of rust-infected leaves, which he claimed were for cooking. It is quite impossible that in the short time from leaving Israel and arriving in Sydney that the leaves could be covered in some sort of rust infection, suggesting the leaves were bio warfare materiel intended for destroying Australia’s fruit tree crops at some point.

    Customs wasn’t having any part of it, however, whereupon this Jew claimed he held legal status as an aboriginal and could prove it, since it was a matter of personal declaration, and therefore above arrest and prosecution. I never found out what happened to this man, but, unless things have changed, flights to and from Australia, including from the US, are noticeably filled with these Hasidic Jews colonizing Australia—as if the Jews don’t already own it lock, stock, and barrel.

    I saw that clip on YouTube. I never saw an explanation for why he was trying to bring diseased plants into the country. It seemed a strange thing to do.

    I'm asking because Australian Jews sound EXACTLY like American Jews.

    Mr. Neil Young has asked a more difficult question on his album and song "Comes a Time":

    "Oh, oh, this old world keeps spinning 'round. It's a wonder tall trees ain't laying down."

    Nobody said you had to pass high school physics to be a rock and folk musician ...
