    Speaking of Eugenics, did everyone know Australia almost started to purge its "racially inferior" in 1939 in Victoria?

    The Mental Deficiency Bill was presented to the parliament in 1939 by the Premier Stanley Argyle. The bill aimed to institutionalise and potentially sterilise a significant proportion of the population - those seen as inefficient. Included in the group were slum dwellers, homosexuals, prostitutes, alcoholics, as well as those with small heads and with low IQs. The Aboriginal population was also seen to fall within this group. It was passed unanimously with the backing of the Premier after a press campaign by a prominent member of the Victorian Eugenics Society. It was not enacted though because of the outbreak of war and, later, due to the embarrassment of the Holocaust.

    The party that wanted to sterilise and imprison the "racially impure"? The United Australia Party.
    The eugenics supporter and newspaper proprietor who campaigned to sterilise and imprison the "racially impure"? Keith Murdoch, Rupert's dad.

    True story.

    “Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.”
    Winston Churchill, 1948
