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.
They are dying in The West.
