Being jailed for bringing foreign plants into Australia is nothing to do with whether we support or oppose primitive living. In fact, much of our flora & fauna is more primitive than that found in Europe, Asia, Africa & the Americas. We even have mammals that lay eggs - a very primitive method of reproduction compared to modern mammals internal (placental) reproduction.
It is because we have strict quarantine laws down here, due to the fact that Australia's geographic isolation over the past 100+ million years means most of our our plants & animals have never encountered the various diseases, fungi & other pests that are commonplace in Eurasia & have thus developed no immunity or methods to combat them.
Reminds me about a TV show Border Patrol: First question do you have something to declare..NO.
And then it turns out they have their bags loaded with all kind of shit
Like me ...last time I was in Croatia 3 years ago i bought nice , very big watercolur , so big it was all the way to Australia in my hand , was in wooden frame [ one must declare any wood here ]
They asked if I have anything wooden and I say NO, they asked few more time and I say NO, why do you ask me again and again
Finaly they asked what is that in your hand ...................holly crap
