Mr President, Please Spend Slow.

Dear President Trump,

Like you I love freedom.

In 1945, my dad served under General Douglas MacArthur for freedom and democracy.

Perhaps the proudest acheivement of my lifetime is the grassroots celebration of WW2 which I created at a national heritage waterhole in Indonesia where General MacArthur built his wife a bathroom.

One of the great lessons of World War Two is that the true defence of freedom requires enormous discipline.

No one with sense who has seen the artistic masterpeice, which is your State Of The Union speech this year, can doubt your commitment to understanding World War Two and your care for your people.

I repeat, I salute that work of art as a masterpiece.

Right now, as a person living in a nation whose future safety from totalitarianism still relies on American strength, I respectfully ask you to be very careful how quickly you make new spending promises.

In the 1940’s, nazism in Europe helped caused the collapse of British, French and Dutch colonial power in Southeast Asia.

Japanese imperialism quickly filled the power vacuum till American leadership and industry saved the free world.

All the peoples of the free world still need you to be strong, fair and generous within reason.

And solvent.

God Bless You, Mr President, and God Bless Freedom.

I pray now for trickle-down restraint.

Who wants to join me?

My Life At Douglas MacArthur’s Waterhole

I shot this little film at the waterhole in Morotai in Indonesia where General Douglas MacArthur built his wife a bathroom in World War Two. My dad camped in Morotai for three weeks in June, 1945. An image of my dad in uniform with his brother and younger sister has been at the heart of a grassroots art display I created there.

In this film I try to show what it felt like for me to have spent twenty-five years developing the abilities to create a philosophical military heritage art display in this place and plant memorial trees there with officers from the Indonesian armed services and then to have my spirit crushed when arrested by the police in Maribyrnong, Australia when I wanted to replicate those activities in my own neighbourhood.

The police arrested me to allegedly protect a female politician from the horrible danger of listening to my ideas.

Modern femocracy has gone too far and ruined too many mens lives.

Lest We Forget.:

Who. We. Are.

An Aussie Engineer in Morotai

This is footage of a work of art in my amateur art display in Morotai.

According to the indigenous land-owner, my father’s soul found peace in that grassroots place with its human soul.

For all its shortcomings, this art display, along with my other Indonesian art displays, has probably been the crowning achievement of what was my life as an Austral-Indonesian Word Artist.

When I tried to share this in what is now for me the police state of Victoria, I was stripped of my civic, human, and democratic rights. Such is life for far too many men in modern Australia and right across the Western World. We are far too often not allowed to have the life we should have anymore.

I had a life in accordance with those principles as a midwife for over a quarter of a century.

I am now too hurt and ashamed of that country to pretend to want to be an Australian anymore.
