Go Back to Where You Came From? | July 12, 2011

by Joe

I stumbled upon a very interesting show from Australia called, “Go Back to Where You Came From“. It’s a 3-part show based on an experiment where a group of people with varying social, racial, and political viewpoints are sent to places that currently shelter refugees (legal or not). The volunteers are made to live like and with the refugees to get a better sense of what’s it’s like to be in the shoes of a person who has been forced to flee from their country due to war, in this case.

Personally, I think that refugees should be welcomed into privileged countries, but I do understand the argument that too many refugees could lead to economic and social issues for the country that opens its borders with loving arms. Sure, it’s a tough call, but I feel that every human being has a right to a safe home and if more people were understanding and accepting of refugees, maybe more suffering families could be pulled from their war-torn countries and comforted by a caring nation, even just temporarily. Wishful thinking? Maybe, but this is a powerful show that could be an eye-opener for many and I’m sure there are others like it. Check it out :D

It also got me thinking about the zombie apocalypse. What if only one country is affected? Will other nations accept non-infected refugees from that country or will the risk be too great to save the innocent, healthy citizens? What do you think?

Enjoy Scene 17 – “Behind the Books”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

First? Anyway, nice!

and about the refugee thing, humans are overpopulating the earth, so no matter what, economic problems will arise. The zombies could help with cutting down the population maybe?

That…has got to be the one thing i didn’t expect to see behind that door.
I knew it would be captured people or something similar, but not like that.
It enraged Bernie…I can’t imagine why so much though.
Also wonder which of those bodies can communicate to his mind, because as far as we know, his mind has a strong shield around it to prevent Andy from controlling him.
(Whoo hoo!!! My longest comment yet!!! [This is definatly worth celebrating])

People that are drained of blood that can enter the plane of the Dream World and speak their thoughts to people? Whoa, didn’t expect that. But srsly? Blood draining? What kind of mad is Scott’s father anyway? A vampire? Certainly doesn’t look like it, he came out in open sunlight. A cannibal? Can’t be, he didn’t eat the flesh… Probably a blood dealer for the vampires? Doesn’t explain the mind communication. THIS SCENE BOGGLES THE MIND!

That was creepy im guessing Gregory is a vampire and uses the machines to save people and then trick them and kill them.Or I could be completely off.

P.S. Your dog is weird

Woah awesome scene also it does keep playng that creepy sound even after the scene ends.So after the scene ended i got creeped out and my eyes went O.O so i refreshed the page :D.Also i can understand why Bernie raged he is a very caring person and always wants to save everyone he can so i guess he felt like he failed to help those people.Im waiting for the next scene

Josh for the last time neither the father or son are vampires
they have shown every possible sign of not being one
a blood delaerfor them possiby but him being a vampire…the chances of that are 0%
but still this one freaks me out a bit…….is he some kind of messed up doctor?

and yet again the audio that is part of it also makes it creepier….one of em might be a vampire..unless there is a(can’t remeber name) human that has mind abilities?

Okay, so if he actually IS in league with the machines; the only reason they would need blood is for making some sort of weapon to use against the vamps. Or they have human brains mounted in them to control them which need blood to function. Either or.

@Author Joe
sup again, good story so far- again thumbs up. here’s an interesting thought, do you write any of this stuff down on paper? i’m a struggling writer, not an awesome designer such as yourself, that does feel like my “dialogue” is not up to speed with my own standards. P.S. nice twist on scott! two thumbs (if i could)

My face was literally like this O_O when he found the room. I was expecting like a machine base, and THAT was not what I expected at all.

I can’t possibly think of anything that makes sense as to why he has a room full of people with blood pumping out of them, and to answer the whole zombie country evacuation, the government, or at least the American government, would be too scared of an outbreak occuring to take the chance

even if i was on the infected country, i would say no refugees, because you know that their will be at least one idiot who hides his bite to get on the ship/plane, and doom the country he lands in.

The problem with refugees is their country. We need to fix it, not just let them into ours, with the potential of them bringing the values that ruined their country in the first place.
