Police State Crits #2 – PLURES EX UNO

The Word.

Omnia Omnibus.

Christianity has what humankind needs right now within its reach but way out of its current capacity to grasp and hold.

The Word. Logos. Logic. Rationality. Discourse.

Omnia Omnibus. Everything for everybody.

Put the two together and the result should be democracy and freedom.

But what do I see?

A magnificent heritage which proclaims a welcome for all refugees.

(Just as long as its not someone like me alienated from the land of my birth by a police state bastardry whose rhetoric and propaganda the church supports whenever it can.)

Tries to be local ……..

(…… but then hits out in fear with the accusation of attempted murder when other persecuted peoples’ desperations for freedom upset its comfort zone.)

I could go on.

But what I seek on the whole of this website is dialogue with others.

Living in The Word.

Beneath Bunjil‘s skies.

People Power #1 – in Canberra

This meme is developed from Rebel News drone footage in the spirit of freedom. It shows people determined to reject the culture of fear and demand freedom,
They are crossing Lake Burley Griffin in an unprecedented Australian rejection of government tyranny.

Incompetent police state tyranny is becoming the governmental norm in Australia.

Human rights trashed. Imprisoning people in their own homes. Mandates which destroy peoples careers to try to force them to consent to medications they do not want to take.

But there are courageous, spirited, much maligned people who are fighting back. In numbers that cannot be ignored.

God bless them all.

I Will Tell My Story #6 A Miraculous Rebirth Of Freedom

Stuart Piggott was an English archeologist who died on September 23rd, 1996.

In his poem “Wessex Harvest” Piggott wrote:

“….. new from old treasure / is this year’s miraculous / rebirth in the harvest.

And so in all years / is nothing forgotten …..”

In my 64 years of life, these words ring true in more ways than one.

I studied classical Latin for ten years at high school and university, so a commitment to ancient knowledge has been with me for a long time.

In three decades of cross cultural involvement with the Republic Of Indonesia, I was exposed to many living ancient wisdoms. And it was in Indonesia that I came to fully understand and feel how important WW2 was in recent history.

Then negative, misandrist, profoundly damaging, pseudo-progressive reactions against my sharing of cross-cultural endeavour, showed me just how hollow idealism can be when it seeks to impose it’s will on those of us who want to build slowly on the lessons of the past.

Now, as the society I live in is destroying its own humanity with lockdowns of itself, I look to a deeply Christian Prime Minister to stand up strong against ignorant tyranny for freedom’s sake.

In his maiden speech to Australia’s federal Parliament, he stressed that Australia is “not a secular country (but) a free country.”

Mr Morrison, Australia needs you to stand by those words. It will not be easy.

But I believe it is possible for you to lead a miraculous rebirth of freedom.

Do you share that belief?

Snacking Gone Mad

Melbourne artist Eddy Burger knows my story.

This old friend of mine also knows a lot about moral and immoral forces which buffet us all.

In this drawing by Eddy (with words added by me), I see an image of how life giving purity can be vulnerable to monstrous cruelty .

I see what governments at their worst can do to individuals focussed on life and what life needs.

It doesnt have to be that way, but sadly sometimes it is.

REMEMBERING MY MIDWIFERY

Today is Karl Marx’s birthday.

He was a guy who was supposed to be pro-worker but whose thinking has constantly lead to totalitarian tyranny.

Including for me.

I was a midwife in Australia for 30 years.

It was a wonderful way to earn a living. Working with couples (and single mums) as they built families.

But it didn’t survive this modern age of Phlegminism.

The destruction of this part of my life happened in the state of Victoria under the government of Socialist Left leader Daniel Andrews. A man who supports feminism but has shown me that he doesn’t care about mothers at all.

The foundations of the modern Third Wave of Feminism are like Marxism.

Both depend on victimhood. According to Marxism, as I understand it, workers are inevitably the victims of rich people and in feminism women are the victims of men. This has nothing to do with healthy social reality.

In the real world, in free civilised societies, people benefit by being decent to each other because they need each other.

They can build good lives together based on love and understanding if they are free.

This is becoming harder and harder in The West for both genders.

I think most men and women are good people, but in the modern world they are so often lost and confused; family life suffers badly as a result.

“Shelly” of San Diego writes:

“Millennial women are turning away from motherhood.

Mothers and their needs are often ignored by society.

For me, being married to a Taiwanese man is different than being with an American man in many different ways. 

Nowadays many American men expect sex by the third date and refuse to commit.

I understand that sex is important to men but putting an arbitrary number on it just kills it for me. I’m a human being, not a trained seal who performs on command. My husband was content to let things unfold at a pace that was comfortable for me. At the same time many American men refuse to commit and call a woman who wants marriage rather than a hookup “pushy”.

Whereas my husband proposed to me after 10 months of dating.”

Isn’t that beautiful?

E Pluribus Unum: Seeger, Brown and Crosby

Three very successful singers, Bing Crosby (BC), Pete Seeger (PS) and James Brown (JB) were all born on the 3rd of May.

I take the fact of this date as permission from God to try to fuse their thought. (E Pluribus Unum.) I hope nobody else objects.

Here goes:

(BC) “……. listen a lot and talk less. You can’t learn anything when you’re talking.”

(JB) “Give kids a chance to learn ……. The real answer to race problems in this country is education. Not burning and killing. Be ready. Be qualified. Own something. Be somebody.”

(PS) “It’s a very important thing to learn to talk to people you disagree with.”

James: “I want to say to you: Help yourself, so you can help someone else.”

Pete: “I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other.”

Bing: “I’m proud to acknowledge my debt to the ‘Reverend Satchelmouth’ … He is the beginning and the end of music in America.”

James: “His acting ability taught him (Reagan) the whole structure of the country … He knows what everybody wants. You see, every American man is still a cowboy.”

Pete: “I think God is everything. Whenever I open my eyes I’m looking at God.”

Bing: “When I’m worried and I can’t sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep. And I fall asleep … counting my blessings.”

God Bless America

People Must Accept Death. Is This Good Friday’s Great Lesson For The World Today?

All around the western world, the established way of living is threatened with collapse.

Such a collapse would not be directly caused by this virus which kills many mostly elderly people. (As we know the virus now.)

Social collapse is threatening us because of the human reaction of fear to that virus.

Human fear of death, especially agonizing death.

Unable to breathe. Like Jesus on the cross.

This understandable human fear has lead people en masse to act as if, by stopping working, they can stop the virus.

They cant. Not based on what we know now.

Viruses are part of life. We live with them. And sometimes die from them.

If people cannot accept a level of death which creates herd immunity, then the only method available to current human health care to stop a virus like this is an effective vaccine widely available. That usually takes years.

What would Jesus do?

I dont know.

What did Jesus do when faced with the prospect of death?

He accepted it.

At The Last Supper, no attempt was made by twelve people to detain Judas and prevent the betrayal which Jesus knew was coming. Jesus accepted his fate. He told Judas to do what Judas was meant to do.

Jesus carried his own Cross in agony with failing strength for as long as he could. He accepted his fate.

He accepted death.

How many people now show the courage and integrity of Republican Dan Patrick in Texas?

As a 62 year old man for whom contracting Corona-virus would mean a 3% risk of death, based on what we know now, I say this:

I want to work.

I want more people to return to work.

I fear that the western way of life cannot afford or survive months and months of so many people not working.

Governments cant afford the economic support people want under a harsh regime of so-called “social distancing”. (It is not social. It is anti-social.)

Economic collapse of The West means collapse of societies based, historically, on the values Jesus died for.

That is too big a risk to take.

Too high a price to pay.

Death is a part of our God-given life.

True passion for life demands that people learn from the passion of death.

It wasn’t easy for Jesus and it wont be easy for us.

Sometimes choosing life means choosing death.

Gender And Society: Calling Out Hysteria

This is what I believe and what I need to say and discuss to survive:

1. Men, women and children need to live with love.

This love is an indispensable foundation of human society.

2. Three fundamental mothering capacities differentiate women from men:

A The ability to carry and nurture life in the womb.

B The capacity to give birth to that life.

C The ability to give the best possible nutrition to new human beings by breast feeding.

3 These three qualitative differences give mothers and potential mothers some different human rights and responsibilities to the rights and responsibilities of other people.

4 The modern western demonisation of men and disempowerment of mothers are two sides of the same coin.

5 The cradle of human culture is maternal love.

6 True loving manliness empowers and protects mums.

7 When family life ceases to be a nation’s foundation, the nation’s death is inevitable.
