A Half-Naked Queen Victoria As A Symbol Of Political And Spiritual Progress

The 22nd of June, 209 A.D., is considered the most likely date for the martyrdom of St Alban. The miracles surrounding his execution drew some of his Roman executioners to Christianity.

In 2022, the democracy beloved of Walt Whitman is under constant threat from various ideologies inimical to any social order based on civilised humanity and the freedoms humans need.

In opposition to those trends, I offer as a symbol of what we really need, the very real female beauty of the young Queen Victoria, as depicted as a symbol of progress over a hundred years ago in a statue in Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne. This statue makes me think that those values may have done better closer to the Victorian era than they are doing now in Melbourne, Australia and most of the Western world.

Demokrasi, Ma Femme, I hope you rise again. Martyrdom as Baptism in this world.

I am a man who loves to see beautiful women and democracy and freedom.

God put those loves in me.

Praise The Lord.

Aussie Freedom Fighters #4 Tanya Lightowler For The Brumbies

Mounted on a working horse, fully decked in digger gear of tunic and slouch hat, Tanya Lightowler proudly guards the ancient Aussie spirit, calling us to care for our equine mountain heritage. She’s so unlike motorized modern mercenaries in smug receipt of pay cheques collected with no conscience in that morbid grasping culture where the real colts from old Regret now struggle to survive.
