A gross exaggeration. There are capitalist oligarchs in China too. Despite the influence of oligar ...

You don’t seem to know how “democracy” works — money, machinery, media — the 3Ms that drive politics, politicians and political parties in the West. Try setting up a political party by yourself and then try running for elections as a politician, let’s see how far you’ll go without the 3Ms of “democracy”.

Simple : Australia doesn't have a mind of its own which is a certainty. So its analyses are pretty poor. Then obviously racial discrimination. If US is located in China, the verdict would have been different.

Which is why Australia's education isn't that good and many Asians are still over paying them Australians for education.
