THE CULTURE WAR

I am now a stateless refugee.

I have a chance of sanctuary and a meaningful life in the Republic of Indonesia.

 I flee from a western world which is at war with itself and at war with human nature.

This war is a cultural war. To paraphrase and borrow from former Reagan White House Director Of Communications Patrick J Buchanan from his landmark 1992 speech in Houston:

This modern war is about more than who gets what. It is about who we are. It is about what we believe, and what we stand for as human beings. It is critical to the kinds of nations we shall be. It is a war for the soul of the world. And in this struggle, the values of the Republic of Indonesia are on my side.  But the Maribyrnong and Victorian Australian Labor Party governments, in my country of birth, Australia, are on the other side.

Please pray with me for freedom, decency and civilised humanity.

They are dying in The West.

I am a man Going My Own Way – to Indonesia.

Man hating modern feminism has created the astonishing and deeply disturbing phenomenon of heterosexual men in The West rejecting women and Going Their Own Way.

I too am going my own way – to Indonesia.

I have been crippled by suicidal ideation in Australia as a result of human rights violations against me in 2016 to protect an Australian Labor Party female politician from the exercise of my democratic rights.

On the 19th of June this year on the island of Java, I have renounced my Australian citizenship.

On the 21st of June I wrote to the president of Indonesia informing him that I am stateless and would like to become an Indonesian citizen.

I have had one meeting with a very polite, efficient and helpful gentleman in an office of the Indonesian Department of Immigration. He informed me that actions I have taken in rejecting my Australian citizenship have put me at risk of five years jail or a fine of 500 million rupiah. (approximately 50,000 Australian dollars.) I dont have that $50,00o.

I give myself much more chance of surviving 5 years in jail in Indonesia than of surviving any forcible repatriation to the modern Australian misandry which has destroyed the life I had there.

I cannot survive in Australia.

I want to be Indonesian now.

Because I want to survive.

Calling out a Bureaucrat for Freedom’s Sake.

Attention: Stephen Wall, CEO, Maribyrnong City Council

Today is the 74th anniversary of the start of the Second Battle of Balikpapan, the last major Battle in World War 2 (WW2). My father landed on that city’s beach back then and saw his fellow Australians die for a freedom which I more recently wished to celebrate in Maribyrnong. But instead of celebrating the allied victory over fascism in 1945 with you and your team, I now condemn you for your negligent failure to defend democratic rights and freedom of speech in accordance with your responsibility as CEO for the daily running of the Maribyrnong government.

In 2015 one of your councillors dismissed my efforts to lobby her on WW2 commemoration as “harassment”. When I complained to you, you wrote to me early in the morning on May 27 that year: “I am sorry that you have felt distressed and I look forward to speaking with you soon.” and repeated later in the morning: “I can assure you we will speak once I have had a chance to speak with Cr. Carter.” Despite many emails from me in the intervening four years about the events that followed you have never communicated with me again.  Why did you break that promise?

In the time since then, my civic and human rights to freedom of speech and to participate in local government via elected representatives have been trashed by your team leaving me unable to survive in Australia.

Furthermore, not one of my many attempts to discuss my situation in Maribyrnong with you and your team has been fully addressed. To his credit, Martin Zakharov has attempted to address some of the issues and has admitted the unnecessary unfairness of what was done, but the fundamental questions raised about your team’s police state action against me remain unanswered.

German musician and round the world cyclist Philipp Zey describes my decision to leave Australia like this: “I met Geoff Fox in Indonesia and spent time with him in Australia. He has chosen not to suffer but to seek to live in honor, peace and respect.”

Zappabolic Phil live for men (and women) past and present. Playing for life. Playing with joy.

I cannot live under a government that panders to a misandry which listens to women but my male story of many fathers’ sacrifice got criminalised by the police.

I will not live in a municipality where people make money out of suicide.

I cannot live where the simple act of trying to resolve problems by discussion is ignored.

I cannot live without freedom of speech which means both being heard and getting a response.

In short, as my Indonesian friends love to say, “Merdeka atau Mati” (Freedom or Death.)

If you had done the job you promised to do on May 27, 2015, maybe my faith in living in the country of my birth would not have been destroyed.

Shame on you.

Attention: Scott Morrison: I can’t be an Australian citizen anymore.

One life ends ……. Goodbye Terra Nullius.

Mr Morrison, I renounce my citizenship of the Commonwealth Of Australia.

In 2015 and 2016 my efforts to celebrate the victory over fascism in WW2 by advocating for environmentalist military heritage tree planting in Maribyrnong were labelled harassment from within the Australian Labor Party in Maribyrnong and police action was taken against me. This action violated human rights of mine under Sections 5, 8, 9, 12, 19 and 21 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

In the three years since then my efforts to get what happened addressed or even properly discussed have failed. As a result I have spent far too much of this time crippled by suicidal ideation. I do not believe I can survive in Australia.

So I now renounce my Australian citizenship, in accordance with my right under Article 15 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights to change my nationality. I am 62 years old, wounded and vulnerable. Please do not throw obstacles in the way of my finding a better life elsewhere. Please help make my transition to another country as easy as possible if you can. Also please do whatever you can to see that no Australian suffers again what I have suffered.

My father faced Japanese bullets on the beach at Balikpapan in 1945 for a better Australia than the one in which I see no future for myself.

I must live where the sacrifices of his generation can be respected.

Geoff Fox, formerly of Maribyrnong, Australia, 19th June, 2019.

I love Pancasila

In my country of birth, Australia, love and praise of God are scorned; people are cruel to each other and think that it is normal; many Australians are patriots but patriotism does not often bring Australian people together; it more commonly gives them reasons to fight each other; the freedom of speech essential to consultative government is being eroded all the time in Australia; and social justice is absolutely impossible if you are a 62 year old white male like me.

But in Indonesia loving and praising God gives me plenty of friends.

People in Indonesia are normally kind and friendly. The civilised humanity is real.

My flesh tingles when I hear the Indonesian national anthem. It is one of the most uplifting songs I know of.

In Indonesia I have met and spoken with three presidents. In Australia, I was arrested by the police for trying to communicate with my local government.

Pancasila, strong religion and the glorious open spirit of the Indonesian people protects the human right to a decent life and to social justice better than the Australia I know where far too many people live in misery and fear.

Tony Abbottt’s Tragic Mistake – Is this a Lesson for ScoMo?

Today is my last day as a Registered Midwife in Australia. Cutbacks in services to mothers and a personally debilitating attack on my human rights from within the ALP in Maribyrnong have combined to deprive me of this livelihood.

I am proud of the unique knowledge midwifery has given me of what women, men and children need.

Today my midiwfery registration expires. So this is my last chance to put on record as a midwife that I know of no other politician in Australia’s history who stood up for what Australian mothers really need as well as opposition leader Tony Abbott did with his courageous policy of a Paid Parental Leave (PPL) scheme funded by taxing big companies. At that time, as I recall, whenever I googled “ALP breast feeding policy”, I came up with policy relating to feeding lots for cattle.

Postponing the implementation of his truly great PPL scheme to the third year of his government’s three year term was a tragic mistake.

By the time that third year arrived, relentless attacks on his alleged misogyny had eaten up the massive political capital he had in his first year.

So feminist and conservative attacks on Mr Abbott’s proposed PPL contributed to Australian mums losing a great chance to get a huge part of the support they need to increase their chances of breast feeding longer.

There is a lesson here for reelected Prime Minister Scott Morrison: he should not wait till the third year of the normal parliamentary term to do things for which he has a clear mandate now.

Freedom of Speech.

Freedom of Religion.

We need both these fundamental rights protected now.

In his maiden speech to parliament in 2008, ScoMo said “Australia is not a secular country — it is a free country.” With passing time these wise words are less clearly true.

Good on you, ScoMo, for saving Australia’s national government from the human rights catastrophe of Maribyrnong Bill.

Please protect our freedoms soon.
