Per il terzo principio della dinamica ad ogni azione corrisponde una reazione, uguale e contraria, agente sulla stessa retta di applicazione.
Per quanto principio fisico, si applica tranquillamente alle azioni umane.
«Poscia, più che ‘l dolor poté ‘l digiuno»: così affermava Dante al verso 75 del XXXIII canto dell’Inferno.
Si inizia ad intravedere la vittoria finale e definitiva della Realpolitik su ogni forma di utopia, di ideologismi, di cose contro il comune buon senso. Ma è anche una vittoria contro la criminalità organizzata.
Il cuore del discorso è scritto in un singolo termine “irregular”.
Sarà un cammino tutto in salita.
L’Australia dovrà subire le fortissime pressioni delle Nazioni Unite, di tutte le Organizzazioni Internazionali, delle più disparate Onlus, Ong, e di tutte quelle organizzazioni che si autodefiniscono per i “diritti umani“.
Non solo, saranno da rivedersi trattati ed accordi.
Ma la vera battaglia si preannuncia nelle aule delle così dette Corti di Giustizia Internazionali, che di giustizia hanno solo la parola nel titolo.
Siamo all’inizio delle fine di una farsa degenerata in tragedia.
Come aveva detto SS Papa Ratzinger:
«Il problema non è quello di garantire il diritto a migrare, quanto piuttosto il diritto a trovare lavoro dignitoso nella propria patria.»

Australia has unveiled tough new plans to bar any asylum seekers who try to reach the country by boat from ever being able to enter.
The lifetime ban on visas would apply even to those travelling as tourists, for business, or who married an Australian.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the move would send “the strongest possible signal” to people-smugglers.
The proposed ban is to be put to parliament later this week.
Australia transports asylum seekers who arrive by boat to off-shore processing centres in Nauru and Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island.
Even if found to be genuine refugees, they are already blocked from being resettled in Australia. They can either return home, be resettled on Manus or Nauru, or go to a third country.
‘Battle of will’
The new legislation would apply to all those sent to Nauru and Manus from 19 July 2013, including those who have returned home, and anyone who arrives in the future. Children, however, would be exempt.
“This is a battle of will between the Australian people, represented by its government, and the criminal gangs of people-smugglers,” Mr Turnbull said.
“You should not underestimate the scale of the threat. These people-smugglers are the worst criminals imaginable. They have a multibillion-dollar business. We have to be very determined to say no to their criminal plans.”
He added: “If they seek to bring people to Australia those passengers will never settle in this country.”
The law will directly affect about 3,000 adult refugees being housed on Manus, Nauru or in Australia undergoing medical treatment.
Australia’s Labor opposition says it is yet to decide whether to back the new law.
Australia has been repeatedly criticised for its tough policy on refugees and asylum seekers.
Earlier this month, a report by Amnesty International compared its camp on Nauru to an open-air prison.
Mr Turnbull dismissed the report’s findings as “absolutely false”.
Australia and asylum
– The number of asylum seekers travelling to Australia by boat rose sharply in 2012 and early 2013. – Scores of people have died making the journey.
– To stop the influx, the government adopted tough measures intended as a deterrent.
– Everyone who arrives is detained. Under the policy, asylum seekers are processed offshore at centres on Nauru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea.
– The government has also adopted a policy of tow-backs, or turning boats around.
→ Reuters. 2016-10-30. Australia would deny entrance to boat arrivals under proposed law
Asylum seekers sent to Manus Island and Nauru after attempting to travel to Australia by boat would be permanently banned from applying to enter the county under a proposed new law announced on Sunday.
Speaking in Sydney, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the government would seek to amend the Migration Act (1958) to prevent irregular maritime arrivals taken to a regional processing country from making a valid application for an Australian visa, even if they had been classified as refugees.
“The bill will apply to all taken to a regional processing country since the 19th of July, 2013,” Turnbull said.
The current policy of sending asylum seekers who arrive in Australian waters by boat to countries like Papua New Guinea and Nauru where their status as refugees is confirmed or rejected has bipartisan support in the Australian parliament.
It was on July 19, 2013, that previous Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd declared that no irregular maritime arrival would ever settle in Australia.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said the policy would not apply to anyone who was under the age of 18 on the date they arrived at either Manus Island, Nauru or any other country designated as a regional processing country.
Up to 3,000 people on Manus Island, Nauru or in Australia undergoing medical treatment could be affected by the proposed laws.
Refugee lawyer David Manne said Australia should be doing more to protect displaced people and queried why the country needed to be taking even tougher measures.
“It is fundamental that Australia lifts its effort to make a far greater contribution to this global crisis,” he said.
“The way to do it is not to propose further measures that are about protecting borders rather than protecting people,” Manne said.
The proposed bill will be introduced in the next parliamentary sitting week.
Turnbull said the legislation is about sending a united and concerted message to people smugglers. Turnbull said there had not been a successful attempt by people smugglers to bring irregular maritime arrivals to Australia in more than 800 days.
“If they seek to bring people to Australia those passengers will never settle in this country,” he said.
