White Australia values Afghan lives over 1,527 times less than Australian lives

Revelations of utterly paltry Australian compensation to its Afghan War victims reveal that the politically correct racist (PC racist) Australian political Establishment values Asian lives over 1,527 times less than White Australian lives. This is compared quantitatively below with other obscene White Australian adherence to White/Non-European superiority factors ranging from "greater than 1" to "infinity".
The Age newspaper, arguably the most progressive of Australian mainstream newspapers, has reported: "The Australian government has paid $84,836 to 1474 Afghan civilians from late 2009 to January this year" but that the Australian Government "refuses to release a breakdown of the payments for fear of creating a market for compensation seekers in Afghanistan" (see Phillip Thomson, “Compensation for hurt Afghans less than $60”, The Age, 18 March 2012: http://www.theage.com.au/national/c... ).
A$84,836 / 1,474 = A$57.55 was paid per person in compensation per person for injury or loss to 1,474 Afghan civilians.
We could conservatively assume that all the money was given for the most serious matters, specifically the avoidable war-related deaths of Occupied Afghans, this enabling one to estimate an upper limit of how much such lives are valued by the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-beholden Australian Labor Government.
According to the latest UNICEF report (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/ ), 191,000 under-5 year old infants die each year (2010) in Occupied Afghanistan (population 31.4 million) as compared to 1,000 in Australia (population 22.3 million).
For impoverished Third World countries like Afghanistan avoidable deaths from deprivation are about 1.4 times the under-5 infant deaths (for detailed analysis see Chapter 2, “Global post-1950 excess mortality and under-5 infant mortality” in Gideon Polya, "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950": http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com... ) and accordingly 1.4 x 191,000 = 267,400 Occupied Afghans die avoidably each year or 267,400/ 31,400 thousand Afghans = 8.5 avoidable deaths per 1,000 Afghans per year or 8.5 x 2 = 17 avoidable deaths per 1,000 Afghans every 2 years (i.e. late 2009 to January 2011).
This is evidence of an immense US Alliance and Australian war crime in gross violation of Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War which demand unequivocally that an Occupier must provide its conquered subjects with life-sustaining food and medical supplies "to the fullest extent of the means available to it " (see: http://www.icrc.org/ihl.nsf/full/380 ). However the World Health Organization (WHO) informs that “annual per capita total health expenditure" permitted by the US Alliance Occupiers in Afghanistan is a mere US$69 as compared to US$7,410 for the US (see: http://www.who.int/countries/en/ ).
This also provides an upper estimate of how much an Afghan life is worth to the NAZI-beholden Australian Labor Government, specifically A$84,836 / 17 avoidable deaths = A$4,990 (US$5,240) for every avoidable Afghan death due to US Alliance war crimes.
In contrast, a recent valuation of an Australian life (VOSL or Value of a Statistical Life) is A$7.6 million (US$8 million; see Peter Abelson (2007), “Establishing a monetary value for lives saved: issues and controversies”, 2007) and accordingly Australia values an Australian life as at least US$8,000,000 / US$5,240 = 1,527 times more valuable than an Occupied Afghan life.
It is useful to compare this racist Australian perception of a 1,527 White/non-European superiority factor with other quantitative estimates since 1910.
1. Greater than 1. White Australia’s first Prime Minister Edmund Barton clearly stated his offensively racist perception of Asian inferiority when in arguing for what became known as the White Australian Policy he declared (1901) that “The doctrine of the equality of man was never intended to apply to the equality of the Englishman and the Chinaman”.
2. Greater than 2. The former explicitly racist Australian Labor leader Arthur Calwell doubled PM Edmund Barton’s maximum estimate when he notoriously valued a White as at least 2 times the worth of an Asian in stating (1947) that "Two Wongs do not make a White" (see Chapter 17, Gideon Polya, “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability”: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com.au/ ) .
3. Greater than 16. A more recent comparative valuation of White Australians and Asians has been given by the notorious support by the 2 major Australian political parties (the Liberal Party-National Party Coalition and Labor, aka the Libs and the Labs) for race-based, genocidal, nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel which only permits adults of 1.5 million Palestinian Israelis - only 6.25 % of 12 million Palestinians – to vote for the government ruling all of 90% ethnically cleansed Palestine plus the nearly 100% ethnically cleansed Syrian Golan Heights i.e. support for an Apartheid Israel “democracy by genocide” and a Jew/Palestinian racial superiority factor of 100/6.25 = 16 to 1 (see Gideon Polya, “Australian Labor’s new anti-Semitism. Oz Labor threatens anti-racist Jews”, MWC News, 15 March 2012: http://mwcnews.net/focus/politics/1...).
4. About 44. About 9,000 Indigenous Australians die avoidably each year out of an aboriginal population of 0.5 million from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease. In comparison these avoidable deaths are essentially the only avoidable deaths each year in Australia as a whole (population 22 million), this yielding an Australian/Aboriginal superiority factor of about 22 million/ 0.5 million = 44.
5. Greater than 71. “Annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution” in units of “tonnes CO2-equivalent per person per year” (2005-2008 data) is 0.9 (Bangladesh), 0.9 (Pakistan), 2.2 (India), less than 3 (many African and Island countries), 3.2 (the Developing World), 5.5 (China), 6.7 (the World), 11 (Europe), 16 (the Developed World), 27 (the US) and 30 (Australia; or 64 today if Australia’s huge Exported CO2 pollution is included i.e. 71 times more than Bangladesh’s per capita) (see “Climate Genocide”: http://sites.google.com/site/climat... and “2011 Climate Change Course”: http://sites.google.com/site/300org... ). Australia under pro-coal, pro-gas Gillard Labor Government is committed by its fraudulent Carbon Tax-ETS plan to increasing Australia’s domestic plus exported GHG pollution 1.7 fold by 2020 and 4.2-fold by 2050 relative to that in 2000 (see “Australian PM Julia Gillard’s appalling record of climate change inaction”, Green Blog, 8 March 2012: http://www.green-blog.org/2012/03/0... ) .
6. About 107. The Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-beholden and war criminal Australian Labor Government only permits an “annual per capita total health expenditure" in Occupied Afghanistan of a mere US$69 and compared to US$7,410 for the US, a White/non-European superiority factor of 107 (see WHO: http://www.who.int/countries/en/ ).
7. Infinity. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted, according to top climate scientists, between now and zero emissions in 2050). Climate criminal Australia has a huge Net Carbon Debt (net climate debt) of 3,631 million tonnes CO2-equivalent (CO2-e) whereas all non-European countries (excepting Japan) are carbon creditors (climate creditors) with negative Net Carbon Debts. Thus in relation to Net Carbon Debt Australia’s White/non-European superiority factor is 3,631 million/ 0 = infinity (see “Analysis by Country of Fossil Fuel Burning-based Climate Debt (Carbon Debt) and Climate Credit (Carbon Credit”, “Climate Debt, Climate Credit”: https://sites.google.com/site/clima... ).
One is reminded of the story of the poor fisherman and his wife who live in a hovel by the sea shore. The poor fisherman catches a fish which offers him anything he wishes in return for its life. The fisherman is granted his wish to be rich in return for throwing back the fish, but his wife is dissatisfied and repeatedly sends him back to the sea shore with successive demands – readily granted by the grateful fish – for the fisherman to be a Duke, a King and then an Emperor. However when the fisherman relays his greedy wife’s demand for him to become Master of the Universe there is a clap of thunder and the fisherman and his wife are immediately reduced to their former poverty.
Like Apartheid Israel-backed Apartheid South Africa and Apartheid Israel today, Apartheid Israel-supporting, neocon Australia adheres to appalling de facto racial discrimination. However a de facto Apartheid Australia attempts to hide its egregious racism behind a veneer of utterly dishonest political correctness (a profound dishonesty termed politically correct racism or PC racism).
Indeed look-the-other-way Australia ignores its involvement in some 24 genocidal atrocities of which 10 are ongoing (see: “Australian Anzac & Armenian Genocide. Australia’s secret genocide history”, MWC News, 25 April 2011: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/1... ).
Now in 2012 the politically correct racist (PC racist), Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-beholden Australian Labor Government values a White Australian life as at least 1,527 times the worth of an Afghan life and adopts a dog-in-the-manger position of an ever-expanding Net Carbon Debt that is infinitely greater than that of all non-European countries except Japan.
This Apartheid Australian PC racism and exceptionalism cannot be indefinitely sustained. While the US racist exceptionalism can presently only be addressed within the US, Australia’s racist exceptionalism is more vulnerable to international indignation that will eventually be expressed materially via Sanctions, Boycotts, Green Tariffs, exclusion from the Olympic Games and other sporting events, International Court of Justice litigations and International Criminal Court prosecutions.
