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
Patriotism often gets a bad wrap, due to the great crimes committed throughout history under its banner. But too often, patriotism’s capacity to unify peoples and nations is overlooked. We can never know what comfort this rousing rendition of “God Bless America,” gave the dozens of Americans when they were brutally slaughtered. But in this… Continue reading Las Vegas and the Power of Patriotism
I supported Brexit, Calexit, but now WAxit/ Waexit is growing in momentum, amid a recent motion from the WA Liberal party. While this change will likely never happen, is speaks something to the greedy, corporatist elements within the WA Liberal party. This is not to deny that WA gets an unfavourable deal in the GST.… Continue reading WA Liberal Party votes for watered-down secession motion
For some time, Geert Wilders has inordinately castigated Islam. Of course Islam remains a warped faith at best, and a totalitarian ideology at worst. However, ever since 2004 when Wilders entered 24/7 state protection, he has moved harder and harder against Islam, such that these positions almost entirely define his political life. Generally speaking, no… Continue reading Geert Wilders at his best
Daily Wire, by Robert Kraychik, May 7, 2017: All the worst events of the 20th century took place because of the triumph of identity over idealism in Europe,” said Michael Gerson on Sunday’s Face The Nation, hosted by John Dickerson. In discussing France’s presidential election, Gerson implied that Marine Le Pen and National Front — nationalistic… Continue reading #FakeHistory: CBS Analyst Says Holocaust Caused By Nationalism
Marine Le Pen once claimed that there was “no longer a left and right. Now there is only globalists and nationalists.” While these comments came some years ago, they have proved prophetic when considering the shifting identities of politics across the West. Of course, Left- wing and Right- wing remain commonly used labels, utilized by those who categorize according to traditional political… Continue reading The new battleground for conservative politics
After seismic waves of right wing populism have swept across the Western world, now appears a good time to replicate the same here. So while One Nation has experienced a controversy- laden rise in the polls, the time has come more generally for Australian people and politicians alike to put their own citizens first, and for an ‘Australia First’ ideology to… Continue reading Why we should put Australia first
I firmly support the need to emphasize common ground, rather than differences when collaborating with individuals of differing ideologies. So whilst constructive dialogue is important, and I consider parts of conservatism and libertarianism essential to my own ideology, I am first and foremost a conservative person. This is not to state that I am incapable of changing my positions on issues… Continue reading Why I’m conservative rather than libertarian
By current multicultural standards, the place of my childhood largely resembled the ‘old Australia’. People who lived in the small town were overwhelmingly of British heritage, whilst a sizeable part of the population was Aboriginal. There were some immigrants in the town, however virtually all of them hailed from Anglosphere nations. I enjoyed a great childhood, but if… Continue reading Why relative ethnic homogeneity is desirable
Joe Biden, an old establishment Democratic hack, recently came out with some interesting claims. While at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Biden accused Russia of testing “the fault lines of western nations” and aiming to return “to a politics defined by spheres of influence.” Biden continued; “with many countries in Europe slated to hold… Continue reading Is Russia a threat to the liberal international order?
There are some conservatives especially on the so called ‘alt right’, that oppose all non- white immigration. Personally, I dispute this belief, as I agree that different ethnic groups; particularly the Vietnamese and other comparably hard working people, have offered valuable cultural and economic benefits to this country. I do take enjoyment in some Asian… Continue reading Why the Left is dishonest on immigration
Central to what underpins the close ties between the globalist likes of President Obama, Chancellor Merkel and EU bureaucrats, is a fundamental distrust of the nation state. These globalists believe that the establishment of nation states as a means of governing people, is an inherently flawed concept. Instead, they favour greater involvement at transnational bodies such as the UN and… Continue reading Why we should support the nation state
A community in Melbourne’s northeast is reportedly ‘divided’ over plans to host Syrian refugees in an aged care facility. And who can blame these people that are ‘divided’ over such plans, which would at best seek to provide accommodation and assistance to refugees at the cost of lesser care for elderly Australians? We’ve all heard about the horrors of the Syrian… Continue reading Refugees to move into an aged care facility?
