Background on buzz words.
The capital of Australia is Canberra but the largest city is Sydney. There are no official languages but the national language is English. Australia is also called Aussie. The total area of australia is 7,692,024 km squared. The 2014 population estimate is 23,658,000. The currency is called the Australian dollar or AUD.
The concept of racial "purity" was developed by Arthur de Gobineau. De Gobineau argued that race created culture, and that "impure" "race-mixing" leads to chaos. Racial hygiene was historically tied to traditional notions of public health, but usually with an enhanced emphasis on heredity. Francis Galton began work in 1869 to find a statistical science of heredity which could encourage voluntary care in selecting partners, and in 1883 introduced the term "eugenics" for this subject, but in the early 20th century a eugenics movement adopted ideas of Mendelian genetics and promoted negative eugenics to prevent the people that were thought to be unsuitable from having children.
What Happened in Australia Between 1869-1969
Rabbit Proof Fence
The State Barrier Fence of Western Australia, formerly known as the Rabbit Proof Fence, the State Vermin Fence, and the Emu Fence, is a pest-exclusion fence constructed between 1901 and 1907 to keep rabbits and other pests, from the east, out of Western Australian pastured areas.
There are three fences in Western Australia, the original number 1 fence crosses the state from north to south, number 2 fence is smaller and further west, and number 3 fence is smaller still and runs east–west. The fences took six years to build. When completed in 1907, the rabbit-proof fence (including all three fences) stretched 3,256 km. When it was completed in 1907, the 1,833 km number 1 fence was the longest unbroken fence in the world.
