Let potential despots and tyrants beware. Australians still cleave to their cultural heritage:
WE love our beer, we love our beaches and we love our barbecues.
But, like the swaggie who sprang into the billabong back in 1895, we love our freedom most of all….
But freedom topped the list – and there was daylight between that and the second most popular response, beer.
Remember this next time your political servants or their party hacks try to tell you what to do. Think about it as they try to make entire classes of conversation verboten. They do not have the numbers on their side. Despite their assaults on our history and culture they have not destroyed the essential freedom loving aspect of our character. Something Australians and Americans inherited from their British forebears.
Our love of freedom has survived decades of left wing propaganda and heckling from the media elite. It’s little wonder the left are so keen on replacing the “people” with one more compliant to their tyrannical disposition. Something else Australians share with British and Americans. Without multiculturalism it could not work. In assimilating migrants come to share our love of liberty. But this is not necessarily so with multiculturalism. At the least we potentially re-tribalise our societies. Something a glance at the history books suggests is best avoided.
The poll sends a message to the elite media, legislative and political classes. Stop stealing our freedoms. Our culture is ours. It is not yours to despoil. You do not have the right to sacrifice our way of life on the alter of political correctness.
As for the rest of us, live your love. Speak truth. But you don’t need me to tell you that.
