In maintaining their relevance, our political oligarchs commonly resort to appealing rhetoric in enhancing enthusiasm and tribalism amongst their respective camps. But despite Liberal/ Labor attempts to differentiate themselves from one another, Australia’s commitment to maintain a ‘non discriminatory’ immigration policy forever remains. However, using this ‘non discriminatory’ notion to base immigration policy is unfeasible,… Continue reading The myth of Australia’s ‘non discriminatory’ immigration system
At black armband, pro Aboriginal protests, one can often hear the chant; “Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land!” Meanwhile, others accuse British settlers of stealing Aboriginal land and resources, and Australia Day has been described by the leader of our third largest political party, as representing ‘genocide.’ When a country’s underpinnings are attacked in… Continue reading Do British Australians have a claim to this land?
After President Trump accused ‘Animal Assad’ of committing another chemical weapons attack, a fresh media clamour for Western intervention in Syria began. But is the President falling for another false flag? One year ago President Assad was universally condemned for his alleged chemical weapons attack, and President Trump responded by launching 57 symbolic cruiser missile… Continue reading America lurches closer to a new war in Syria
When one ventures to opposite sides of the immigration universe at openborders.info, he/ she can find the following case for open borders: immigration restrictions should be removed because they; “arbitrarily discriminate against people based on their place of birth, and enforce these restrictions coercively.” In other words, nation states selectively granting citizenship or immigration to… Continue reading Why your nation, ancestry and birthplace matters
Whenever nationalist issues of immigration, identity, pride, culture and race emerge across the Western world, we excessively consider the perspectives of immigrants and outsiders over our own. While these preferences are misplaced, that isn’t to suggest a tunnel- visioned, Eurocentric view that inflicts endless suffering upon third worlders is desirable. To the contrary, Western interventions… Continue reading Why the West is wrong on nationalism
Wednesday morning revealed the result many had anticipated: as Australia voted for gay marriage. Meanwhile, out of this vote emerged an Islamic sub- plot. The areas that most heavily voted against gay marriage, were the Muslim parts of South- Western Sydney. Which are also predominantly Labor electorates and overall, 10 of the 17 Federal seats… Continue reading The strange place of Islam on the political spectrum
The rise of anti- globalist movements, Leftist identity politics, and Islam- critical forces have indubitably left libertarianism in a weaker position than it once was. Which is in some respects, unfortunate. On a personal level, I find libertarian views on cigarette taxation, climate change, mass surveillance, self defence, foreign interventionism, as well as policing and… Continue reading The trouble with Libertarianism
Whites are disproportionately and inaccurately blamed for historic sins: We hear plenty about the Trans- Atlantic slave trade, and of the wicked crimes committed. While these were reprehensible acts, little is ever mentioned of local African cooperation to make this practice possible. Similarly, it is seldom acknowledged the Arab slave trade was longer and more damaging… Continue reading Why White Fragility is Nonsense: Part 2
‘White fragility’ first developed by Dr. Robin DiAngelo, is described as a “state in which even a minimum amount of (white) racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.” This doctrine suggests white people accustomed to lifetimes of privilege, clutch at their jewels whenever fairly critiqued. It states that as whites own both… Continue reading Why ‘White Fragility’ is Nonsense: Part 1
A rarely discussed fault line in this polarized cultural landscape, is that between individualism and tribalism. On one side, cultural Marxists and the alt- Right share an overriding belief in race’s importance and therefore tribalism, and that race should be a cornerstone of life, culture as well as politics. Contrastingly, traditional conservatives and pragmatic progressives… Continue reading Individualism and Tribalism: What’s the Right Balance?
Speaking to reporters at a New Jersey golf course, President Trump promised to unleash ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ on North Korea, should it continue to threaten the United States. And yet, the North Korean response spoke volumes as to the extraordinary improvidence of Trump’s remarks. Almost hours later, the regime… Continue reading President Trump’s brash escalation with North Korea
While ‘Calexit’ (the campaign for California to secede from the United States) has been and mostly remains a far- fetched concept, considering recent events in US politics, we should be reluctant about ruling out the seemingly impossible. Obviously, given America’s history with civil war, the possible secession of any US state would be no trivial… Continue reading Why I support the concept of Calexit
A movement advocating for the formal recognition of Aboriginals in the Australian Constitution, otherwise known as ‘Recognise’, has gained significant momentum in recent years, with powerful interests including the AFL, the NRL, and Qantas championing its cause. Purportedly, notions of equality and civil rights motivate those who seek to have a specific segment of the Constitution… Continue reading The misleading pretenses for Constitutional recognition of Indigenous Australians
To assess my personal ideology, I took a variety of political spectrum tests as shown below. Perhaps surprisingly, the tests indicate that I am a centrist/ centre- right ideologue. While these sort of conclusions don’t appear to be entirely accurate, they do suggest I have some inclinations towards pragmatism despite holding an overwhelmingly conservative/ nationalist… Continue reading Assessing my political beliefs
Understanding the scope of Malcolm Turnbull’s extraordinary miscalculation in claiming the Liberal party is ‘not conservative’, requires a brief trip down memory lane. The year was 2013, and as this author was often swamped by rabid Leftists in his first year of University, the Aussie Conservative Blog’s ideological roots were taking hold. Meanwhile, conservatives championed… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull’s political suicide and historic revisionism
