The Top 10 Characteristics of Highly Evolved Beings

The Top 10 Characteristics of Highly Evolved Beings  By Jeff, guest author for HumansAreFree.com, 18 October 2017

Editor’s note: A very thought-provoking article, that many will dismiss – before thinking more deeply...

Highly evolved beings, and the civilizations that they create, embrace principles and ways of being that create highly beneficial outcomes for all. Their civilizations are characterized by cooperation, harmony, and love rather than competition, conflict, and fear.

The net result is civilizations where freedom, prosperity, and happiness abound. Their example serves as a great model for Humanity to emulate if it truly wants to create the better world that many of us are hoping for.

What highly evolved civilizations you ask?  Well believe it or not, there are many highly evolved civilizations within our galaxy, and many more beyond.

There are two reasons that their existence is not apparent to us; (1) most of them exist in higher dimensions of our physical universe, so they’re not visible to us, and (2) they aren’t all that interested in direct interactions with a civilization as primitive as ours.
But rest assured that many of these civilizations are very interested in facilitating the evolution of Humanity and are doing so in a number of subtle ways behind the scenes.

I was inspired to write this article by the in-depth discussion of this topic found in the book Conversations with God – Book 4: Awaken the Species and this article is essentially a summary of that discussion peppered with my own insights. So without further ado, let’s dive into the top ten ways of being of highly evolved civilizations.

#1 – They Deeply Understand the Unity of All Life and Live Congruently

Highly evolved beings know the Oneness of all — they know we are all parts of a singular, yet multi-threaded, consciousness that is All That Is.

They know that any apparent separation is an illusion because everything is part of one thing and it is all interconnected and interdependent. They know that any action they take that effects another being or thing ultimately effects everything else.

This is the single most important realization any being can have and in civilizations created by beings with this understanding it is the foundation of their way of life.

They deeply know that what they do to another they are ultimately doing to themselves — and hence they treat everyone and everything with great care and respect.

#2 – They Always Tell The Truth

Highly evolved beings always tell the truth. They are essentially incapable of lying.

They have deeply learned that deceiving themselves or others is counterproductive to achieving their highest intentions and desires, so they have absolutely no interest in lying. But even if they did, any attempt to do so would be easily detected by all those listening.

At the level of consciousness of highly evolved beings, their ability to sense energy and vibration is greatly enhanced (everything is energy; matter, light, thoughts, emotion, etc) and so any attempt to communicate something that is untrue would be readily apparent to all listening.

At this level, a being cannot communicate something that is untrue and not radically alter the energy they are emitting.

In stark contrast, denial and deception run rampant in Humanity — we frequently lie to ourselves as well as others, and we are easily deceived.

Only by transcending separation consciousness, only when we realize that we are all expressions of the same one consciousness, the same one being, and by embracing the unity and equality of all beingness will we eliminate the need to deceive and avoid all the associated undesirable consequences.

As an example of how we lie to ourselves, consider the violence that is portrayed in our entertainment and its connection to the increasing violence in our society. The portrayal of violence runs rampant in our movies and TV programs, in our video games, and even in our children’s toys.

You’d have a hard time convincing a highly evolved being that the constant stream of violent images we bombard our children with has no effects on their beliefs, attitudes, and behavior.

Humanity, on the other hand, can’t seem to admit that the increasing violence in our society arises, at least in part, from the continual onslaught of such images.  Because if we did, we’d have to do something about it, and we feel powerless, so we just ignore it.

This pattern of seeing self-damaging behaviors and then doing nothing about them is a classic sign of immature beings.

Highly evolved beings never hide from the truth, and they always speak the truth.  And of course, when they speak the truth they also take congruent and appropriate action which is the subject of the next two points.

#3 – They Always Do What They Say

Highly evolved beings have a habit of speaking their truth, and they also have a habit of following through with what they say they will do, whether it is said to others or themselves. Their actions are always consistent with their words, they don’t say one thing and do another.

Humans on the other hand, often say one thing and do another — and then ignore, deny, or lie about it!  Obvious examples abound.

For highly evolved beings, sticking to their word is a matter of honor and integrity.  If they don’t think they’ll be likely, or able, to do something they don’t say it.

If on the other hand, they meant what they said, but later they find they can’t keep their word because of unexpected circumstances, they will face it squarely and go talk to everyone involved to clear it up. They will humbly and truthfully explain why they won’t be able to do what you said.

#4 – They Always Do What Works

When highly evolved beings see a less than desirable situation and have understood why it exists, they always respond with something that works.

They do not ignore it, deny that it exists, cover it up, do something that doesn’t address the true problem, or in some other way fail to take appropriate action — as is often the case with Humanity.

Examples abound, here are a few of them:

If our goal is to live a life of peace, joy, and love (which I sincerely hope it is), then violence does not work.

This is immensely obvious if you take but a moment to contemplate history — isn’t it clear that retribution begets retribution, hate begets hate, violence begets violence. And yet we repeat the pattern over and over.

If our goal is to live long and healthy lives, then consuming meat daily, smoking known carcinogens continuously, and drinking alcohol regularly does not work. This has been amply proven, yet many of us continue to do these things.

If our goal is a society free of violence and war, then the modeling of violent behaviors and attitudes to your children, via our entertainment and toys, which has clearly been proven to facilitate the adoption of those violent tendencies, does not work and would be stopped immediately. Yet, we do nothing.

#5 – They Never Kill Each Other

Highly evolved beings never, under any circumstances, kill another incarnate being unless specifically asked by the other to do so.

Within Humanity, murder and mass murder (war, etc) occur appallingly frequently.  We justify much of this behavior as “self-defense.”

It’s interesting to note that in primitive societies all attack is called “defense.”  And of course, we certainly have the “right” to defend ourselves and do so in any way we see fit — after all, we are free and sovereign beings, so we “have the right” to do anything we please.

Yet, a highly evolved being would not kill another even in situations we would clearly consider self-defense.

This is because they understand that every act is an act of self-definition, every act defines who you are.

You are creating yourself in each and every moment by what you choose to do, so it boils down to deciding who and what you want to be. Do we want to define ourselves as ones who are willing to do anything to survive, and create a dog-eat-dog kind of world in the process?

Ultimately, highly evolved civilizations transcend the need to kill others because they no longer create situations where they would find themselves needing to kill.

And that’s because they have awakened to their Oneness, and every aspect of their attitudes and behaviors have changed dramatically.

When Humanity fully awakens then all the conflict and competition will end — no more killing, no more dog-eat-dog world.  Instead, we will find ways to share everything and cooperate on a grand scale.

And this new found level of cooperation and sharing will create an unprecedented level of prosperity and happiness for all, and no one will ever have any reason to attack or defend (physically, emotionally, financially, etc) for any reason ever again.

In the rare case that an unenlightened person chose to mortally attack you, you would simply allow yourself to be killed knowing that “death” is an illusion and peacefully exit physicality and return to your eternal non-physical self and existence.

You would not choose to perpetuate more violence just for the survival of your physical body — which is not you; it’s just a temporary vehicle.  When you know that the real you can’t die it changes everything!
“Know then that the body is merely a garment. Go seek the wearer, not the cloak.” — Rumi

But what if we were attacked by another civilization you might ask? Don’t we have to worry about another civilization coming to Earth one day and destroying us? This question is addressed in Conversations with God Book 4 and I will defer to it on this topic.

All I’ll say about this is that our fear of this scenario is being encouraged by a whole slew of alien invasion movies and the like.

Given the benevolent extra-terrestrial presence that is here (i.e. highly evolved civilizations) trying to gently facilitate the awakening and evolution of Humanity, it makes you wonder if some or all the “alien fear porn” is the work of some agency with a nefarious agenda?

If you’d like to explore this topic further, then I suggest you check out the work of Dr. Steven Greer.

He is the world’s leading expert and most trust worthy source on the extra-terrestrial presence, and who, why, and how it is being hidden from us.

#6 – They Never Damage Their Environment

Highly evolved beings would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm the physical environment that supports their society.

They deeply understand and appreciate the interconnection and interdependency of all life, and they deeply appreciate the environment that sustains them.

They know that to continue to have their environment to provide for their needs, and for the needs of all generations to come, then they must live sustainably — they must live in a way that is gentle, careful, and thoughtful to their natural environment and planet and wisely husband her resources.

Humanity, on the other hand, continues to demonstrate a callous disregard for their environment using and abusing it, and poisoning it (and ourselves in the process)!

#7 – They Share Everything With Everyone, There is No Ownership

In highly evolved civilizations there is no such thing as “ownership.” This is because they understand that since they are all One, everything that exists belongs to everyone that exists. And hence, they share everything with everyone all the time.

A far cry from Humanity, which generally only shares with others in very limited circumstances.  We have an economic system and mindset that encourages us to accumulate as much stuff that we can call our own as we can, and that encourages a relative few to horde the majority of the resources and wealth of the planet.

To most of us, sharing everything probably seems completely impractical and unworkable. It’s very hard for us to imagine how sharing everything could work — but believe it or not, it works very well.

In highly evolved civilizations the idea of “ownership” is replaced by the concept of “stewardship.” Beings in those civilizations mutually agree on who will have stewardship responsibility for what, who will partner with whom, and who will perform what functions.

The person or persons that care for and manage a given thing or resource (e.g; the stewards) do not “take” it as their own — they are simply responsible for managing it.

It could be said that the resource is “owned” by the community and the steward of the resource is taking care of it on behalf of the community.

But of course, enlightened communities understand all resources are essentially gifts from the Universe that are to be managed responsibly, and used fairly, for all those using it now, and in the future.

Those who accept stewardship of anything, be it land or something else, do not imagine that they “own” it. They understand that they are merely caring for and managing it for the benefit of the community.

For instance, no one imagines, that just because they are stewards of a particular plot of land on the planet on which they incarnated, that they “own” the minerals, water, and whatever else is under that plot of land — all the way down to the center of the Earth.

Nor does anyone imagine that they “own” the air, or the sky, above a particular plot of land — as high as the sky goes.

Such ideas are absolutely ludicrous to highly evolved beings and any debates about who owns the “rights” to whatever seems utterly pointless to beings who understand that they are all One.

A big stumbling block to embracing the idea of “no ownership” is our difficulty in imagining how we would earn a living without the profit motive that seems so strongly linked to ownership. But unlike Humanity, highly evolved civilizations do not view living as something you have to “earn.”

Systems can easily be devised that allows a society to fulfill individual and group needs without the members of that society having to sell their soul and abandon their dreams to survive. Many civilizations have created such systems and have demonstrated that they work very well — producing a high degree of freedom, prosperity, and happiness for all.

Highly evolved beings also have a different way of looking at “profit.”  They do not consider it “profitable” if one individual benefits at the expense of another.  They do not consider it honorable or acceptable if they get more and another gets less.

In highly evolved civilizations, no one benefits unless everyone benefits. It might be said that they would measure profitability by how well a stewarded resource is managed and how well it provides benefits to the members of the community.

And hence, they would likely describe the degree of success of any venture by using the term “beneficial,” rather than the term “profitable.”

If you still think a society sharing everything is unworkable consider that Humanity makes sharing work all the time on a small scale — with our loved ones and families.  In this context, we generally care for others no matter what, regardless of what they’ve done.

What if we could extend our sense of family beyond blood relatives? What if we could start by caring about everyone in our community with that same type of bond and the same sense of connection that we have for our family members?

And then what if we could extend it to everyone in our country, and then our world?  This is the difference between highly evolved civilizations and Humanity — they feel that same connection, the same amount of compassion, care, and love for everyone in their society.

When you begin to stop seeing others as outsiders, when you begin to transcend “us” versus “them,” you are on the verge of a breakthrough in the evolution of your consciousness.

When you can treat every single person with kindness and respect no matter what they have done, then you will have transcended separation and will have powerfully aligned with the unconditional love of the Source within you.

One of the root impediments to adopting a sharing economy is the belief that there is not enough for everyone, which leads to people wanting to make sure they get theirs, so someone else doesn’t get it instead — possessiveness, greed, hoarding, etc.

The belief in scarcity is one of the key beliefs that is responsible for creating the type of world we live in (e.g; one characterized by conflict and competition).

The apparent scarcity of many things on our world is largely due to unfair or inefficient distribution, not any inherent scarcity. As a shameful example, there is actually enough food produced on this world for everyone yet many continue to starve.

And of course, much of the apparent scarcity on our world is intentionally manufactured by commercial interests to maximize profits or by distribution strategies based on profit only mentalities which leaves many without even though there is plenty.

And imagine if all of the energy and resources invested in the worlds war machines was applied to everyone’s welfare — we could easily solve most if not all of the worlds inequities!

Because highly evolved civilizations work cooperatively, share everything, tell and face the truth, and do what works, they rarely experience scarcity.

But even more deeply, highly evolved beings have transcended scarcity altogether because they understand metaphysics and know that they are creating their reality with their thoughts and beliefs and so ultimately scarcity is an illusion which is self-created.

#8 – They Work Together Cooperatively, There is No Competition

Highly evolved beings never compete with one another. They deeply know the Oneness of all and that what they do to another they ultimately do to themselves, so they work together for the greater good of all.

They cannot bring themselves to gain at the expense of another and so competition all but disappears in their civilizations. When enlightened beings see the truth, they do what works and the strategy that works the best, in the long run, is cooperation and sharing.

Humanity has a long way to go in this regard. Competition, at every level, runs rampant.  We have convinced ourselves that competition is healthy — that it motivates and produces more efficient outcomes.

And in the short term it often does, but in the long run, it creates great inequities. We have fallen into endless and often ruthless competitions for everything — money, power, fame, love, attention, sex, everything — and it is killing us.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, the enlightened 32nd president of the United States, echoes this sentiment when he said this about competition and cooperation:
“Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.”

#9 – They Do Not Embrace the Principles of Justice and Punishment

Highly evolved societies do not embrace the principles that we refer to as “justice” and “punishment.” Enlightened beings understand that any being that acts to harm another is deeply wounded, deeply in pain and that their acts are simply a cry for help, a cry for love.

Hence, they do not attempt to bring those that have done harm to justice or punish them.  They have found that, in the long run, this approach is rarely effective. Instead, they reach out with compassion and love to help heal them.

They try to help heal these people in whatever way seems appropriate and effective. And they understand that judging and punishing is rarely either — because it does not heal a person’s core wounds and therefore alter their way of being or behavior.

They know that doing so will likely only deepen and sustain the wounds and the problem. They know that only love can heal all wounds and transform people.

But how can a society function without laws and a judicial process, and the threat of punishment and incarceration that is the cornerstone of this system? How can beings co-exist without some sort of “code-of-conduct” and associated disciplinary system? The code of conduct of highly evolved beings is elegantly simple:

Do not think, say, or do anything to another that you would not want to have thought, said, or done to you. 

Sound familiar? Every religion on our planet teaches some version of what we’ve called “The Golden Rule.”

The difference between human societies and highly evolved civilizations is that they actually apply The Golden Rule in their lives, rather than just giving it lip service.

But what happens in these civilizations if someone breaks The Golden Rule? Is it considered a “crime?”

Believe it or not, there is no such thing as “crime and punishment” in highly evolved civilizations. No one commits a “crime,” because everyone understands that they are All One, and that an offense against, or harm to, another is an offense against their self.

And since their are no crimes, there is no need of what we might call “justice.” The concept of “justice” is interpreted and expressed in a different way, not as “punishment” but as “appropriate action,” and in most cases, the appropriate action is far different than what would occur in our society.

A typical example is, rather than punishment and incarceration the action that would be taken would be education, support, and rehabilitation.

Justice is not something you experience after you act a certain way, but because you act a certain way. Justice is an act, not punishment for an act.  An enlightened civilization understands this.

The problem with our society is that we seek “justice” after an “injustice” has occurred, rather than “doing justice” in the first place, through the choices and actions that we make — justice is an action, not a reaction.  When everyone in our society acts justly (e.g; follows The Golden Rule), we will not need judicial and incarceration systems.

#10 – They Do Not Believe In or Experience Lack

Highly evolved beings know that “lack” is a self-created experience and they have transcended it.

They understand metaphysics deeply and know that they are eternal beings — that their ultimate essence is pure consciousness, non-physical and formless, and hence they do not fear death and are not concerned about their survival.

When survival isn’t the issue, the idea of lack begins to dissolve.

Fear of not having enough is further dissolved by their knowing that they are creators — that what they experience (their reality) is created by their thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and desires and hence what they can experience is limited only to what they can imagine — and they have gotten very good at imagining only an abundance of health, happiness, and prosperity.

At this level of consciousness, sometimes referred to as Creator Consciousness (versus Victim Consciousness), abundance is guaranteed.

At the level of existence of highly evolved civilizations they are no longer concerned with whether they will survive, or have enough, but in what manner they will live life to its fullest and create wonderful experiences for all.

Humanity is far from this level of consciousness and existence.  Fear of not having enough, and survival runs deep, and it is one of the core reasons why there is so much competition, conflict, inequities, and suffering in our world.

But most of the perceived shortages on our planet are illusory. A good example is the supply of food.  On our world, over 650 of our children die of starvation every hour — which seems to indicate there is a shortage of food.

Yet we scrape enough food off our plates in restaurants to feed whole countries; no child needs to starve to death. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates food waste in the United States alone to be about 30 to 40 percent of the food supply — an estimated 133 billion pounds of food wasted.

This is a situation that would never, ever occur in highly evolved civilizations. They would simply make it a priority to figure out how to solve the issue, which is more one of distribution than it is of lack of supply. They would figure out how to “share” the food more effectively.

Conclusion

We have explored some of the key characteristics that distinguish highly evolved civilizations from others that are less so. If you’d like to explore these in more depth or learn about some of the other distinguishing characteristics not discussed here then check out Conversations with God – Book 4: Awaken the Species.

The example offered to us by highly evolved civilizations provides a tried and true model for us to adopt that can enable us to create that better world that we all yearn for. This model can be summed up very simply — caring, and sharing, and cooperation is a powerful combination that can transform our world!

Let’s be the change we wish to see in the world and create a wonderful new earth together!

Communist barbarians led to genocide

Communist barbarians led to genocide  By Jennifer Oriel, The Australian, 9 October 2017

As we approach the centenary of the Russian Revolution, it is time to honour the dead. Dispense with romantic notions of Marxism and trash red chic. Communists turned back the clock on human progress and led humanity into a century of genocide. Yet they are celebrated in The New York Times, rebranded as punk icons on Amazon, venerated by the UN and refashioned as progressives in mainstream politics.

The refusal to acknowledge the communist legacy of genocide provides fertile ground for the ­renewal of the totalitarian left. The Bolshevik revolution provides an opportunity to remember the past century of communist genocide so that we are not doomed to repeat it.

The ignorance of Western populations about the reality of communism has paved the way for a resurgence of the hard left. Amassing under the banner of anti-fascism, militant leftists have declared November 4 as the day their coup against the US government begins. The ignorance that sustains Western tolerance for left-wing totalitarians is cultivated by the popular rebranding of genocidal communists as revolutionary heroes.

Despite leading the most murderous regimes of the past century, genocidal communists are still in vogue. Compare the difference between the branding of communism and ­Nazism. If you want a Hitler T-shirt on Amazon, you’ll land on a page ridiculing or celebrating violence against him. So far, so good. But type in Trotsky, Lenin or Mao Zedong and the template is transformed into fist pumps, woke jokes and old reds reincarnated as punk icons.

There’s a Valentine’s Day T-shirt featuring Trotsky, Lenin dressed up as a punk idol and Mao venerated in vintage chic: “China’s Papa”. And it seems papa has had a baby. Amazon fashion sells a “cute infant bodysuit baby romper” depicting Mao, Stalin, Lenin, ­Engels and Marx.

The New York Times has launched a special series, The Red Century, to commemorate the centenary of the Russian Revolution. Consider this quote from a recent column: “For all its flaws, the communist revolution taught Chinese women to dream big.”

What an incredible revision of genocide. What about the estimated 50 million people killed by Chinese communism? What about the thousands of women and girls raped? What about the mother of Zhang Hongbing, who was executed by firing squad ­because she disrespected the image of Chairman Mao?

What about the grandmother and granddaughter buried alive for being class enemies? What about the female intellectuals tortured and killed for harbouring politically incorrect thoughts? What about Lin Zhao, who was executed after being tortured for criticising socialism? What about her ­mother, who only learned of the ­execution after a Communist Party official demanded she pay 5c for the bullet that killed her daughter? What about all the peasant women condemned to agonising death by mass starvation? If you want to understand the depravity of Chinese communism, put down the PC press and pick up Frank Dikotter’s The Cultural Revolution.

Fashionable silence about the genocidal legacy of communism has paved the way for a ­resurg­ence of the hard left. Mercifully, the hard right has been ­denied such an opportunity. Thanks to the dedication of Jewish survivors and the postwar consensus on Nazism, young people learn about the horrors of the Holocaust in schools and popular media. Nazi is a term of derision. Hitler is held up for scorn. All that is as it should be. While Holocaust revisionism is banned in some countries, communist revisionism is all the rage.

Totalitarian communists are venerated by the body established for the purpose of preventing the ­return of totalitarianism. Last year the UN observed a minute of ­silence to honour Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. General Assem­bly president Peter Thomson described Castro as: “One of the iconic leaders of the 20th century, with a great love for his homeland and the Cuban people, he dedicated his life to their welfare and development.” Fact check: Castro’s regime killed thousands of people in the name of communism.

The widespread denial of communism’s death toll enables the West to forget the 100-year legacy of red genocide. As a result, red revolution is back in vogue and communists are returning to the corridors of power.

By way of ­example, consider that British ­Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn hired Andrew Murray for his campaign team. Murray was a leading member of the Communist Party with a track ­record of public speeches praising red terrorists like Stalin, Trotsky and the murderous ideology of Marxism-Leninism. The Independentnewspaper reported that when asked about Murray’s ­“Stalinist” sympathies, Corbyn defended him, saying: “I don’t ­believe that Andrew is anything other than a democratic socialist and member of the ­Labour Party like me.”

Now that the election is over, we can see what Corbyn’s democratic socialism looks like. Murray is booked to speak at an event ­celebrating the Bolshevik revolution. The organising committee states: “The Russian Revolution had a profound impact on British ­society and we intend to mark its centenary with a diverse program of ­national events cele­brating it as a positive develop­ment for both our country and for humanity.”

Scholars of genocide do not celebrate the Russian Revolution as a “positive development” for humanity. In his book Genocide, Adam Jones writes: “There is very little in the record of human ­experience to match the violence unleashed between 1917, when the Bolsheviks took power, and 1953, when Joseph Stalin died and the Soviet Union moved to adopt a more restrained and largely non-murderous domestic policy.”

In The Black Book of Communism, scholars attempted to estimate the number of people killed by communists across the 20th century. At the time of publication in 1999, they estimated a total death toll approaching 100 million. In 2007, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation was dedicated by then president George W. Bush. It is credited as the only foundation in the world commemorating “every victim of communism”. The foundation believes communists have killed more than 100 million people.

If you’re planning to commemorate the Russian Revolution, tell the truth about its legacy: 100 years of communism, 100 million victims.

Speech on Muslim immigrant issues in Australia

Speech on Muslim immigrant issues in Australia  By Pauline Hanson, leader of Australian party One Nation, 9 August 2017

I am well known for speaking up about immigration, but what isn’t well known is that I am not anti migrant. In 1996, I spoke out about the high rate of immigration from Asia that would have put us on a trajectory of losing our Australian identity. I support immigration when it is in the best interests of Australia, but we have made a mistake in accepting high levels of migrants from countries where democracy is unknown and accepting people who follow Islam and its political ideology.

One of the reasons we don’t know enough about the extent of the problems with Islamic immigration is that political parties don’t want to upset the Muslim vote. There is plenty of information collected, but it is not published and it is not available to senators like myself. In hiding the evidence of high unemployment and high dependence on social welfare, the government hopes you won’t discover the problems associated with Australian Muslim communities.

Despite the best efforts of Labor and the coalition, we have found some reliable information. The unemployment rate amongst Australian Muslims is more than double the average rate and it is more than 50 per cent higher than the nearest other major religious group. The unemployment rate for Muslim women is higher than that of Muslim men, making Muslim women the most likely religious group to be unemployed in Australia. This persistent high-unemployment level among Australian Muslims translates into high levels of income support in the form of payments made by the Department of Social Services.

I don’t have enough time to go into greater detail, but in densely populated Muslim suburbs, Muslims are paid high levels of taxpayer-funded support in the form of disability pensions, carer pensions, carer allowances and other forms of income support. Australian Muslims are a significant drain on the public purse, because of the rates of unemployment and dependence on social welfare. You will not hear these facts from Labor, because Labor is muzzled in pursuit of keeping the Muslim vote it already heavily relies on. We looked at the electoral areas containing 10,000 or more Australian Muslims, using 2016 census information. Every one of those 15 federal seats is held by Labor, and 50.4 per cent of all Australian Muslims live in these 15 Labor seats. It is the concentration of the Muslim vote, in a relatively small number of postcodes and electoral divisions, which gives Australian Muslims a much higher influence in Australian politics. What we know for certain is that Labor needs the Muslim vote to keep those seats in the parliament. The reliance on the Muslim vote in turn gives Australian Muslims an important say over Labor policy, and that influence is increasing because of the high birth rates among Muslim women. In fact, the number of Australian Muslims doubled in the decade between 2006 and 2016.

The young age profile of Muslims in Australia means that Muslims will increase naturally at a greater rate than any other. The concentration of Australian Muslims in a limited number of postcode areas, together with the high rates of birth, means Labor is now firmly in the hands of the Muslim voter. The demographic information is irrefutable. The only issue is how Australian Muslims will change the Australian Labor Party and Australia.

The Muslim vote has pushed hard for Labor to abandon its traditional support for Israel and they have kept Labor silent on the fate of Christians in the Middle East, particularly Maronite and Coptic Christians, who once made up 20 per cent of the Middle East and now make up less than 5 per cent. In the lower house seat of Blaxland, in NSW, there are 50,995 Muslims, or 29.2 per cent of the population. In the Sydney seat of Watson, there are 40, 903 Muslims or 23.4 per cent of the population. In Victoria it’s a similar situation. In Calwell, there are 29,324 Muslims and in Werriwa there are 21, 761 Muslims.

Labor has made a conscious decision to sell its soul for the Muslim vote. Every speech and every comment made by Labor is now made with reference to keeping the Muslim vote. Labor cannot speak out in opposition or act in government on issues affecting Australian Muslims because it fears losing seats in parliament. The numbers are so finely balanced in the lower house of this parliament that the loss of this small clutch of seats would see Labor’s chance of government end. Labor’s dependence on the Muslim vote is frightening, because a small but fast-growing group, opposed to our way of life, is bending Labor to its will. And communities of Coptic Christians and Lebanese Maronites and other Christians know how that story ends.

The Muslim vote opposes same-sex marriage because the notion of sexual orientation is against the fundamental teachings of Islam. So here is Labor’s dilemma: how does Labor get same-sex marriage passed, bury the hundreds of thousands of ‘no’ votes and not upset Muslims in Labor electorates? The best way forward is to let parliament decide, and then they will tell their Muslim voters they had to follow the party line—gutless!

It is common knowledge that areas with high concentrations of Australian Muslims are also areas associated with organised crime and acts of terrorism performed in the name of Islam. Labor knows this as well as any Australian, but it cannot speak directly, so it talks in riddles. Who can forget Bill Shorten talking to the cameras about combating extreme extremism and hoping those watching could see that he was like any one in a hostage situation. He was communicating in riddles, hoping not to offend the hostage takers—that is, the Muslim vote in Australia.

Australian Muslims take all the benefits that Australia has to offer, but Australian Muslims are underrepresented in the workforce and underrepresented in the Defence forces, instead preferring to fight for ISIL in Syria and Iraq. A federal investigation into the status of foreign fighters found 96 per cent had been on welfare benefits, including disability pensions, before leaving to fight overseas. It’s a disgrace that more Australian Muslims have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq than have joined the Australian Defence Forces to defend Australia. It is a disgrace our pension system is abused by Australian Muslims, and it is a disgrace the Department of Social Services is inept. It is undeniable that many Australian Muslims choose to be separate from other Australians living in communities. Many of them never leave these communities except when accessing government services and benefits and having holidays in their countries of birth.

One Nation supporters have a positive view of migrants when they are willing to become active citizens, to work and to make Australia a better place. However, we are not seeing too much of that from Australian Muslims. It would be comforting to think the problems we have with Muslim refugees and second-generation Muslims will resolve, given time and money, but there is no evidence anywhere in the world that this will be the case.

We need to learn the lesson from other countries who have accepted high numbers of Muslims into their country. They have found that, as the number of Muslims rise in a country, the tolerance of those Muslims to others in that country falls. Then, Muslims demand special treatment, which is given for the sake of appeasement, but is never enough. The demands just keep coming—discussions to change the words ‘race’ to ‘people’ in Section 51(xxvi) of the Australian Constitution for the benefit of Muslims because they are not a race, they are a people.

There are no democratic Islamic countries in the world. If we don’t ban further immigration from Islamic countries, our way of life will be lost and the freedoms we take for granted will be gone.

About Peter Senior

I'm a very experienced and pragmatic management consultant. I've reviewed and led the restructuring of many organisations - large and small corporations and Government Departments, much of the time as President of the New Zealand Institute of Management Consultants. Before that I was General Manager of a major NZ newspaper; earlier, an analyst for IBM UK. I gained an honours degree in engineering at London University, and studied management at Cambridge University. This wide range of experience has left me frustrated: I continue to see too many examples of really bad management. Sometimes small easily fixed issues; sometimes fundamental faults; and sometimes really tricky problems. Mostly these issues can be fixed using a mixture of common sense, 'management 101' and applying lessons from years of management experience. Unfortunately, all too often, politics, bureaucracy and daft government regulations get in the way; internal factors such as poor culture and out-of-date strategies are often evident. So what's gone wrong, and why, and most importantly, how to fix 'it'? I hope there are like-minded people 'out there' who will share their thoughts enabling 'us' to improve some significant management failures that affect the general public. If you just accept bad management, you don't have the right to complain! If you'd like to share thoughts on any aspects of management, send me an email to petersenior42@gmail.com . My latest project has the interim title 'You’ve been conned. Much of what you were taught and read is largely irrelevant, misleading or plain wrong – this is the REAL story of life: past, present and our possible future.' The working paper so far comprises 105 pages, many listing references and interim conclusions. The main problem is finding sufficient credible evidence, and realising the more Iearn, the more I realise I don't know!
