Who would you fight for?


Farewell of Hector and Andromache, Sergey Postnikov, 1863

Recently I had a casual exchange with contributor Bruce of Newcastle on the OT. 

The guts of our remarks was the number of wars fought by Russia and how this had shaped their national psyche.  Further, that Western attitudes and policy towards Russia will continue to be largely ineffective, if not counterproductive, until the West at least accepts that Russians don’t think like us.  Their beliefs have been baked-in over hundreds of years and formed their protective stance towards Mother Russia.

This led me off on the tangent of wondering about loyalty.  The Russian populace in Australia is relatively small and certainly by comparison to the Chinese, Indian and Jewish communities and of course, those from the assorted Middle Eastern and Asian nations.

Therefore, I wondered, if push really came to shove, who would leave the relative safety of Australia to fight for their birthplace?  The question is predicated on the person being born overseas and armed conflict between their birthplace and another nation was either commencing, or imminent.   Moreover, any reasonable assessment concludes that the military forces of your birthplace are very likely to be overwhelmed.

Imagine it is all but certain that your birthplace will cease to exist as the nation you were born to.

And if you were to leave to fight, would you do so only as a member of the regular military forces or, would you engage as a guerrilla?  Or, if incapable of bearing arms, would you instead act in a direct support role?

Those thoughts naturally lead to a question about an Australian born person living overseas.  There are several Cats living overseas or who travel overseas extensively for their work.  Would you return to Australia to defend her if necessary, or remain in the relative safety of the country you were in at the time?

Rightly or wrongly, I don’t have any China born friends of whom I could ask the question.  Overwhelmingly my friends are Russian born and for several, I could reasonably guess their  response without even asking.   But, I do have a couple of Indian born friends and rang them to test my question. 

Both said they thought it was extremely unlikely (impossible) that India would be militarily overwhelmed and thus their services would not be required.  Fair enough and almost certainly true.  But when pressed, one of the two said that yes, despite being an Australian citizen of some 26 years (slightly more than half his life), he would take whatever steps he could to protect his birthplace even if that meant leaving his wife and children in Australia.   He did, after all, still have some extended family in that country but if nothing else, would be ashamed of himself if his birth country was effectively destroyed and he had done nothing.

So, what say you Cats?   If your birth nation was facing almost certain annihilation from an aggressor, would you depart (or return to) these shores to defend your birthright?

From absolutely Yes to absolutely No:

My kids are now the 6th generation associated with some farmland in Victoria. Their ancestors having cleared heavily timbered country to turn it into productive farmland. These kids should not receive any special recognition due to this history. However, nor should they be considered second class citizens in their own country which is already the case in practice.

In 1996 the Australian Government decided that I was a criminal or that at least that I posed a risk of criminal activity. They subsequently confiscated my private property. Whilst they would have had no hesitation tin shoving the same equipment into my hands and asked me to defend the country.

In 2020 the Australian Government decided that it was entirely appropriate to deprive me of employment, because I would not accept experimental treatment for a disease that was highly unlikely to kill me nor anyone else for that matter.

If you want citizens to defend a nation then you must have something worth defending. Australia no longer has anything worth defending. In some ways comprehensive military defeat might be the only cure for what has become a profoundly stupid and disgusting country.

I’m in this boat, I do not share the so called ‘values’ of this country.

I would prefer to fight for Russia even though I have no connection to the country.
Their collective values are far more similar to what mine are though.

“It’s sad that we have arrived here..”

Look at the shameful scenes last week in Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, and in Auckland on Saturday when Kellie-Jay Keen tried to speak. She and other women were screamed at, physically assaulted, and virtually lynched in broad daylight. Why? Because she believes in such quaint notions as…

1. Biological sex is immutable, you cannot change sex. Cutting off your dick doesn’t make you a women.

2. Sexual deviants and perverts don’t belong in women’s prisons or private spaces, such as bathrooms and changerooms.

3. Women don’t have dicks.

4. Children shouldn’t be surgically and pharmaceutically mutilated.

5. Children shouldn’t be sexually groomed.

Nup, the West is done. I won’t fight for it, I’ll defend my family, but nothing more.

I’d go and fight for my father’s homeland, though I was born here I do have dual european citizenship as does the rest of my immediate family. We have the option to go if we want, had never intended to but these days it is becoming an evenly weighted option.

If Australia was attacked, I would recommend we all return to our ancestor’s homelands and then the so called “first nations” folks can defend their “always was always will be” land or have a treaty with the invader and a “voice” in how things shall be done (ha ha ha ha ha). Should be all over in around 3 hours and they’ll be dead or in chains.

We’re second class citizens here now, and the government of the day wants to cement that into the constitution, fine, it’s a democray.

However, that, in my opinion, relieves me of fighting for this land.

I was born here, love it here, but disagree with what it has become and the pandering to all the grifters in our society at the cost of our sovereignty. The “voice” and all the other mechanisms to cancel my love of this country don’t come cheap. The cost is loyalty and that appears to be in one direction as is the reconcilliation process. Another one way street where we are expected to give forever and be called rascist and other names and disadvantaged as well.

I won’t die for Australia, nor do I encourage anyone else to. We’re hated here now and the governments just encourage more of that. Let th woke and their ilk fight the next war, if so inclined, though I suspect they will become Eloi.

As adults, and law abiding citizens in a free country, we’re not farken allowed to buy a particular example of an auto, because a quarter century previous, the same vehicle type was sold locally.

In FARK can that possibly make sense, and in FARK don’t it apply to all other consumer goods?

To have to endure “welcome to country” when my ancestors came here in 1839, to be told repeatedly that only post WW2 migrants built this country, really gets my goat. That there are any number of dual passport people in this country that would bugger off as soon as an invasion of Australia occurred shits me to tears. (That’s not to say that many post WW2 migrants didn’t work their guts out and become very productive members of society, nor that there are a number of dual passport holders that may fight for this country.)
What is more galling is my own children, who I have tried to raise to be proud of their ancestry and their country, have feelings of being pariahs in their own country.

Apart from the fact that they are not much more indigenous than that one in the USA who proved to have stuff all native DNA, what’s to be “proud” of?
Are they proud of how their men used to (or still do) brutalise women? Are they proud of how their offspring are running around town at all hours and vandalising, assaulting, stealing?
Are they proud of the use they’ve put their “sit down money” to?
Are they proud of the awful record of criminality that lands so many in jail?
Are they proud of the humbugging, or the diseases that both adults and kids get unnecessarily, including STDs?
Really, what’s to be proud of? The Voice? It’s a distraction, another virtue signal that won’t do anything good.

One of the foundations of modern Australia is that we are a nation of migrants and, for national cohesion, we agree to leave past enmities at the gang plank when we board HMAS Australia.

Fighting for the old country, whether it’s in Europe, Asia or somewhere else is an affront to our sovereignty as a nation.

We swear allegiance to Australia. There’s no room to be swearing allegiance to a foreign country.

The left hates sovereignty and the nationalism essential to sovereignty so it has turned “multi-culturalism” into a separatist movement that champions non-English-speaking ghettoes in our major cities – that is, not letting go of the old country and bringing old enmities here.

If you want to fight a war for Russia or Ukraine or anywhere else, go ahead and do it – but renounce your Australian citizenship first or you’re just another anti-Australian separatist subversive.

I’m about 4 generations removed from my first Scottish ancestors who landed here in the 1850’s. I have no wish to go to Scotland and defend it from a Faroes Island invasion.

Would I stay and fight or get my sons to stay and fight. I’m 54 with bad eyesight and hearing. I would be picked off very easily by a trained enemy. So no I wouldn’t. I would advise my sons to leave and start afresh somewhere else. The country would be wreck for at least 20 years after any war if they survived.

I’m late 50s with reasonable health. I wouldn’t fight for my forebears lands but would for Australia. I know politically it’s gone to the dogs. But as Daniel Hannan recently remarked, we are the luckiest people on earth.

There are still values worth fighting for. My dad enlisted as a teen in 1939. His example is worth something. A dear late friend of mine from the Northern Tablelands when the Pacific war broke out rode his favourite and much loved horse with his mate down the mountains to enlist in Coffs Harbour. They took his horse away and he never saw it again. Yet he served with distinction.
Those old guys didn’t care much for ideology. They believed in freedom and fought to uphold it.

As an older guy now, I couldn’t do much. But I would want to do something. Maybe a padre or something.

It’s very hard to separate “family” from “country”. Without a country then family/friends/community would have nowhere to be. Fighting for your country really means fighting for your family and its right to exist in the country.
Much as I despair of the Marxist takeover of Australia, should there be a call to arms to defend this country, then I would do so since it actually means defending your family.
In reality, all I could do would be to join a Dad’s Army brigade. Better than nothing. It may be a sacrifice that prevents kids and grandkids paying the ultimate price.

You start by asking why the person came to Australia in the first place. Of course they wont tell you directly unless it is just working here. If they migrated, then you can be pretty sure that a percentage will dislike their former country as they must constantly justify their move. It was a big decision.

There are several Cats living overseas or who travel overseas extensively for their work. Would you return to Australia to defend her if necessary, or remain in the relative safety of the country you were in at the time?

Defend an Australia made up of 34% born overseas and if counting those born in the country with parents born overseas then that number rises to 50%? (as per the last census).

It’s not my country anymore because it’s not my people anymore. Which is exactly the way they wanted it. Well, now they’ve got it and they can have it.

By the way, a much more pertinent question to ask is, what will the roughly 3 million Chinese living in the country do if China and Australia go to war. Or the millions of Indians if India and Australia go to war. Because the way that the USA is going, that’s on the cards, and Australia isn’t about to renounce its prized status of best Yankee lapdog any time soon.

Hitler thought the Poms wouldn’t fight because of

debate on 9 February 1933 at the Oxford Union Society. The motion presented, “This House will under no circumstances fight for its King and country”, passed at 275 votes for the motion and 153 against it.

and an instant later

1 Feb 1983 — History did not repeat itself. This time the members of the elite debating society voted 416 to 187 that they would fight for queen and country.

But there is a lot of truth pointing out changes in society and whether it’s worth fighting for.
I mean society not the actual geo. place.
It must have changed a lot if even we, who lived here all our lives notice it, despite the slow changes.

No one has told ME I’m a second-class citizen. I also have no disputes with any of the many many indigenous folk I know and see around town. Have played numerous sports with all manner of “ethnically diverse” Aussies. The NO vote is probably 90% up here, with local Pacific Islanders telling me they don’t want “lazy bludging Murrays telling them what to do”. This sentiment includes the Murrays themselves who are NOT bludgers = only city slickers in govt employ want this shyte!

From my perspective nearly all this depravity is an inner-city thing, so why don’t the decent people living in the adjacent ‘burbs clean the stables out, FFS? THEN the whole place might be worth fighting for. Maybe.

That’s pretty much how I have always felt. If Australia went to war for any reason, I would fight for Australia. I did actually do that and I was keen to go.

But now, to quote Jules in Pulp Fiction, I’m in a period of transition. I don’t like what Australia has become. I don’t like what the ADF has become. I don’t want to fight so that trannies can groom children. I don’t want to fight to be a second class citizen in my own country. I don’t want to fight for the people who are blowing up Australia’s power stations. I don’t want to fight for a country that brings in millions of people hostile to us and that change our demographics. I don’t want to be in an army whose priority is to persecute its own soldiers.

On the other hand, if say, the Chicoms invaded, I’d do whatever I could to help defeat them. Probably not much because I’m too old for the army now, but I do know some stuff.

Enoch Powell’s biography makes interesting reading – he was a man of towering intellect, with no time for fools.

During the North African campaign, the official Party line was that the German Army would find it difficult to deploy tanks to that theater of war. It was Powell who spotted that the Germans had requisitioned a merchant ship, originally designed to transport railway locomotives, and, as such, very capable of transporting tanks……

I’m too old to be much use except making the tea in a ‘Dad’s Army’.
