Human Rights Trashed in Terra Nullius.

Too many Australians dont know what it is to be human anymore. Or maybe that is not so new. The continent was once called Terra Nullius (Nobody’s Land) so that colonisers could ignore the indigenous inhabitants and claim ownership for their own nation.

Many people in Australia believe Australia has a good human rights record, but, so far, not a single one of them from the Prime Minister down has been willing to say publicly and openly for me on this blog that what happened to me was wrong: in 2016 when I wanted to celebrate human rights in Australia, my own human rights were trashed.

So I renounced my citizenship and sought asylum in Indonesia, a nation built on civilised humanity.

After two weeks of sanctuary in a tertiary level madrassah and three months in Immigration Detention, I was deported back to Australia against my will.

I might become homeless this Australian summer.

But I wont back down: I stand on and I speak up for my right to be free.

For freedom of speech.

For the integrity of representative democracy.

For the right to self-determination.

To My Bankers: Please Talk With Me

To My Bankers

Dear Mike, Susan, Rachel, Mary and Alice

As I hope you all know, I am an Australian born artist who has created art displays at places important to four heads of national governments in the fourth biggest country in the world.

As I understand it, last month your bank came close to cancelling my mortgage and that would have set me on the path to homelessness and that course of action by you is still possible this month.

As I have outlined to you, I think there are better things you can do.

You have a choice.

If you want, you can lock yourselves in to making me homeless.

Or, can you sit and talk with me?

Why have you refused to discuss my ideas?

Calling Out Tanya Pilbersek on Misandry and Freedom of Speech

Tanya Pilbersek, today is your 50th birthday and the 65th anniversary of the censure of Joseph McCarthy by the US Senate.

Today I remind you of the great words of one of the pioneers of the long campaign to bring McCarthy under control. On June 1st 1950 Senator Margaret Smith of Maine said to the Senate: “Freedom of speech is not what it used to be in America.  It has been so abused by some that it is not exercised by others.”

Senator Smith took a courageous stand against what she called “hate and character assassination”

Today I ask you, Tanya Pilbersek, to repudiate the misandry of #metoo and White Ribbon Day which has created a climate of fear where an elected people’s representative of your political party can use the police against freedom of speech and not be held to account.

I call on you to unequivocally reject the sexist campaign to end violence against women. This is a gross affront to all male victims of violence.

Today, on the day of your birth, I, writing as a former midwife of 3 decades standing, ask you to remember all mothers and recant your politically motivated opposition to Tony Abbott’s sadly ill fated but ground breaking proposal for a more generous paid parental leave scheme.

Mr Abbott wanted to tax the biggest companies in Australia to give all mothers 6 months 100% income replacement for income up to $150,00 a year.

You said that this showed his “lack of respect” for women.

The truth is that you showed your lack of respect for mothers.

Shame on you.

Abe Lincoln: A Civil War Xmas

On the first of December 1862, with his country torn apart in Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln told America, “In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom to the free—honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve.”

On Christmas Day that year Lincoln visited soldiers in hospitals. Then the president commissioned artist Thomas Nash to create the first modern image of Santa Claus, in the cause of freedom.

What a wonderful Christmas spirit that was: visiting those wounded in a righteous cause and creating art celebrating generosity.

In the modern world, freedom is under constant threat.

Why cant we give freedom to each other anymore?

Why cant we even communicate?

Tim Goldich Interview: The Glass Escalator

I am Geoff Fox, a former midwife, and now a dissident MRA in Australia.

On June 19 this year, I renounced my Australian citizenship in writing to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. It is now late November and “ScoMo” has not yet replied.

The following is an interview about this situation with Tim Goldich, the president of the Chicago chapter of America’s National Coalition For Men.

GF: What does the fact that ScoMo has not even responded to my renunciation of Australian citizenship say to you about care for men in The West?

TG: It is in keeping with a general drought of compassion toward men.

Currently, women are so powerful, and draw so much empathy, that men’s issues are completely ignored.

In the realms of gender advocacy, gender issues, gender politics, gender anything, there is feminism on the one hand and on the other hand there is . . . . . . . . . . nothing.

GF: What would you like to say to ScoMo about his failure to respond?

TG: I would say: “I get it that you don’t want to be the sole politician in Australia that speaks of men’s issues. It may seem to you that responding to male concerns is akin to political suicide, but infinitely catering to feminism is societal suicide.

Exactly zero women out there are complaining of an over-abundance of confident, ambitious, successful, high-earning men.

Man can only pour from his glass half “full” into Woman’s glass half “empty” for so long before you get Japan—a society in which 1 in 4 below the age of forty has never once had heterosexual sex.”

GF: ScoMo has said “We want to see women rise, but we dont want to see women rise on the basis of others doing worse.” How do you rate this statement compared to other national leaders’ positions?

TG: Given the gender-political climate, I think Mr. Morrison’s sensible comment was extremely brave. I deeply hope that he can survive it. Much will depend on whether or not others back him.

I believe Mr. Morrison is attempting to draw a line on the multiple Glass Escalators feminism has put in place in their efforts to force “equality.” Which is to say, female-only “equality,” which is not equality at all.

Perhaps Mr. Morrison glimpses the big picture here and realizes that when women “have it all,” men are left with too little to be significantly and long-lastingly desirable (as lovers, as spouses, and as parents). In other words, men become increasingly superfluous and that’s how Japan ended up with a population of male “grass eaters” that ignite little passion in women.

GF: In 2016, I was arrested by police and silenced at election time while a female politician, of whom I was critical, was reelected and protected by the threat of 2 years jail from any comment by me about her.

The woman is now mayor of Maribyrnong …….. I am still suffering from subsequent PTSD ……. In your view does that constitute the rise of a woman by pushing me down?

TG: In a word, yes.

In the U.S., affirmative action quotas, 1,027 federally funded female-centric organizations of all kinds, scholarships, grants, billions of dollars devoted to the emotional, professional, domestic, and scholastic wellbeing of women plus enormous societal pressure to hire and promote women all Glass Escalator women.

Compare that with males—scholastically sabotaged, homeless, and imprisoned by the millions—and yeah, I think it’s fair to say that women are advantaged at the expense of men.
