This is Hieu Van Le, A vietnamese refugee who came to Australia in the 70s who is now the Governor of South Australia. My favourite part of this story is where he recounts his entry to Australia: 

"Living in a refugee camp was one of the most horrific experiences one can go through," he said of the experience.
He boarded another leaky vessel to try for Australia, nervous of being turned away. But the fears proved to be unfounded. He says he still recalls the greeting he received from a pair of fisherman in a small boat off Darwin Harbour.
"One of the guys raised a stubby up as if proposing a toast. ‘G’day mate,’ he shouted. ‘Welcome to Australia’." (X)

This is the Australia I know and love, not the country that embraces a shitty racist refugee policy that locks desperate people in a multi-billion dollar prison.

Are you going to look that terrified when you take me out for a drink?
I absolutely promise I won’t.
Play your cards right and you might.

The world has changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it. […] For within these rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race.

But they were all of them deceived for another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark Lord Sauron forged in secretly a master ring, to control all others and into this ring, he poured his cruelty, his malice, and his will to dominate all life. One ring to rule them all.

[W]hen I see men callously and cheerfully denying women the full use of their bodies, while insisting with sobs and howls on the satisfaction of their own, I simply can’t find it heroic, or kind, or anything but pretty rotten and feeble.
