First, I like to acknowledge the country on which we make our home, Terra Australis, whose landmass is over fifty percent under Native Title; whose major oil and gas projects are delayed by judges in thrall of whale song-lines, mythical undersea burial grounds, by mother sea and by rainbow serpents; whose states are busy enacting treaties with people of majority European ancestry; and whose most populous city has been renamed “Naarm” by the ABC, I understand – don’t actually watch or listen to it. The same country whose centre-right political parties (pause to lol) enacted net zero; and an unspeakably vile segment of whose citizens gathered in front of the Opera House contemptibly chanting “gas the Jews.”
The referendum was a lonely battle won. A teasing flicker of hope in a cauldron of despair. Best not to get carried away. The war is being lost.
Just how is the Aboriginalisation of Australia to be stopped let alone turned back? How are resource development projects ever to successfully run the gauntlet of environmental obstacles, spiritual mumbo-jumbo, crafty lefty-lawyers, and woke judges? How are wind and solar eruptions on the landscape to be stopped rather than just slowed down? How are massive levels of immigration to be reined in? How do we get an immigration policy which keeps out those people whose religious-cum-cultural attachments are inconsistent with Australian values? In any event, how do we unscramble the egg?
The answer to all of these questions is with extreme difficulty. Once the freaky, perverted, globalist, western-civilisation hating, collectivist, mind-bending Left’s infiltration of institutions has been largely completed, as it has, there are few champions left to fight for individual liberty within cohesive societies, for the nation state, for free markets, for common decency and common sense. Most politicians, public servants, academics, corporate bigwigs, union bosses, reporters and commentators, sporting code administrators, well-heeled professional urbanites, have been compromised.
A good number of think tanks fight the good fight; the likes of CPAC, the new ARC, which met in London, the IPA here, but we should not pin too much hope in them. They largely talk to a limited in-house cohort of the converted.
The common man is the remaining potential hope. The referendum showed that. Only a radical political movement can harness that potential. Don’t see it happening. But perhaps Trump is the last best hope for America and by extension for us. A long shot.
