bad rap

The following paragraph came from this source:

THEOSOPHY, Vol. 16, No. 2, December, 1927(Pages 59-62;
Size: 14K)(Number 6 of a 103-part series) 

"And the meridian of the south magnetic pole? Touches
only one inhabited land of any importance -- the
extreme east coast of Australia, whose native forms
without exception, from man to the earthworm, are
hopelessly weak, decadent, and moribund."

Theosophy has given Australia a bad rap over the
years. Although some of it might be justified, as my
profession is the study of Australia's biota (and I
believe there are many instances of evolution "winding
down"), most of it is not. If Australia's native forms
are "hopelessly weak, decadent, and moribund", why is
the US being over run by Eucalyptus trees? I have even
heard that kangaroos are becoming a pest in parts of
Europe. All I can say is look out for those menacing
koalas, once let loose you'll never be able to stop them.
