BERNAMA – Malaysia, Australia Agree On Cooperative Transfer Of Asylum Seekers

This one comes as a surprise. Just when you think human beings can’t be objectified much further, my country turns them into a trade commodity. “We’ll give you 800 of ours and, over time, we’ll take 4000 of yours.”

What does this solve? How is “people trading” morally superior to “people smuggling”?

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.

  1. It did come as a surprise. It is a good outcome for the 4000 who have been waiting in camps for a long time. It is deficient insofar as it appears to be a one-off arrangement. It is deficient in that it appears to be borne out of a determination to be mean and grumpy about people who are using up their last resort to gain a better life free from persecution. Everyone of them would prefer to be able to live freely in their own place. But they have no option to do that now.
