The Social Contract Is Broken

Rights and Responsibilities do not exist in a vacuum.

They live in harmony.

This can be called a Social Contract.

When societies cease recognising rights and responsibilities, those roles and entitlements die.

In Terra Nullius (a.k.a. Australia), the Social Contract is dead. Some contrarians might ask, “When was it ever alive?”

I do not know if I can survive in the police state femocracy in which i find myself.

People do not realise how bad things are.

How much humanity in the West is being destroyed by heartless inhumanity.

Today and yesterday I started begging on the streets.

God bless those who gave.

For “BANJO”

“Banjo” Paterson, who wrote the words for Waltzing Matilda in 1895, died on this day in 1941 as a result of a heart attack.

Waltzing Matilda tells the story of a swagman – a poor homeless man travelling on foot carrying his possessions in a “swag” slung over his back. This itinerant bloke commits suicide to escape arrest after he was caught by the authorities with a stolen sheep on a rich man’s property.

This song is famous for being Australia’s “unofficial national anthem.”

When it was one of four songs in a plebiscite to choose the official national song, I was one of the 28% who voted for it.

“Waltzing Matilda” is probably based on an incident at Combo Waterhole.

I visited the place when I was much younger and met one of the locals who confirmed for me that I was in fact at the place where “the swaggy took his jump.”

At that time the National Safety Council had placed a sign there with detailed instructions on how to perform mouth to mouth resuscitation.

How does it come to pass that the story of a homeless man who kills himself still represents the soul of Australia for very many Australians?

Lest we forget the lives of men.

I WILL TELL MY STORY

I had been a midwife for 28 years.

I lobbied a politician for memorial tree plantings and to support my cross-cultural heritage artwork.

I was arrested by the police.

Bewildered, in shock, for three years, determined to tell my story one day, wanting to die the next ……. no Australian would speak up for me.

So I could not and cannot pretend to be one of them.

I cannot live if I am not heard.

Augurs Of Freedom

Americans love celebrating their tradition of freedom, especially the presidents on January 20, evry four years when the presidential inauguration takes place.

In his 1953 Inaugural Address, Dwight Eisenhower said, “We are called as a people to give testimony in the sight of the world to our faith that the future shall belong to the free.”

On January 20, 1961, JFK said “……. the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”

In 1969, on the same date, Richard Nixon said, “The essence of freedom is that each of us shares in the shaping of his own destiny.”

Australia does not have the same robust and articulate commitment to liberty.

A few days ago, I asked a bloke, who is the Australian equivalent for me of England’s Samuel Johnson and who knows a fair bit about my situation, “….. do you recognise the trashing in 2016 of my rights under articles 19 and 21 of UDHR?” (freedom of speech and the right to participate in government in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

Aussie Sammy answered, “I do. You and many other citizens and non-citizens will experience such outrages but when a Court is involved, they are lawful under the law for the land that applies them – even when, as I say, the greater human right is being trashed.”

This fella was talking to me about a country he loves more than I can. He showed great personal integrity in speaking so honestly.

I cant live with this sort of “legality” where The Law and those responsible for it can destroy the foundations of democracy with impunity. In my case this was done when I was trying to celebrate democracy and freedom.

I cannot pretend to be willing to be a part of such a country.

I am a man Going My Own Way – to Indonesia.

Man hating modern feminism has created the astonishing and deeply disturbing phenomenon of heterosexual men in The West rejecting women and Going Their Own Way.

I too am going my own way – to Indonesia.

I have been crippled by suicidal ideation in Australia as a result of human rights violations against me in 2016 to protect an Australian Labor Party female politician from the exercise of my democratic rights.

On the 19th of June this year on the island of Java, I have renounced my Australian citizenship.

On the 21st of June I wrote to the president of Indonesia informing him that I am stateless and would like to become an Indonesian citizen.

I have had one meeting with a very polite, efficient and helpful gentleman in an office of the Indonesian Department of Immigration. He informed me that actions I have taken in rejecting my Australian citizenship have put me at risk of five years jail or a fine of 500 million rupiah. (approximately 50,000 Australian dollars.) I dont have that $50,00o.

I give myself much more chance of surviving 5 years in jail in Indonesia than of surviving any forcible repatriation to the modern Australian misandry which has destroyed the life I had there.

I cannot survive in Australia.

I want to be Indonesian now.

Because I want to survive.

More Questions for Mayor Zakharov

For three years I have been driven towards suicide by the misuse of police services against me from within Maribyrnong City Council and the Australian Labor Party in 2016. A horrific part of this trauma for me has been the complete failure of anyone within either organisation to adequately address the questions raised by what was done to me. Only you have tried, Mr Mayor. You havent done enough to answer the questions, but you have at least made an attempt.

On June 18 2016 I sent an email, to one of your ALP colleagues in Maribyrnong beginning with this sentence, “i believe there is an undeniable presence of gender bigotry and demonisation of men in our society including in Maribyrnong” Two days later police were at my home with a warrant ready to arrest me for communicating with this politician. Is sticking up for mens rights a crime in Maribyrnong?

On July 29th, 2016, I asked this question in an email of you and all other Maribyrnong councillors, “Does Maribyrnong City Council practice gender equity with respect to physical and psychological health issues or does Maribyrnong City Council discriminate too strongly in favor of women?” On July 5th i was arrested by the police for communicating with one of the councillors to whom this question had been addressed. The question is still unanswered. I now add this question: Is Maribyrnong City Councils expenditure addressing suicide, which claims 8 lives a day, 56 times greater than its expenditure addressing domestic violence against women which you have told me several times, as memory serves, claims one woman’s life every week?

On November 18 last year I asked you early in your term as mayor, “How many men have committed suicide in Maribyrnong in the past decade and in each of the past five years and what are the equivalent figures for women in Maribyrnong?” On January 8 you responded, “I don’t have Maribyrnong figures, but nationally I believe it’s roughly the opposite of domestic violence deaths – more than twice as many men as women dying from suicide.” I dont think this is a very good answer, but it is better than none at all.

I believe, using my instincts as a Registered Midwife of 31 years standing and based on what I have seen in quite a few artistic interactions with you, you have inherited many fine qualities from your mother Senator Olive Zakharov, a pioneer in opening up the issue of domestic violence. But now it is time for those qualities to be turned to addressing the needs of men. Too many men are choosing to die and too many Australians ignore the questions which we need to ask to address this difficult problem.

Can you make a start on this and show some leadership by becoming a Mayor who is on top of the suicide figures and trends in his own municipality and who does not duck the hard questions that need to be answered if the problem is to be addressed?

PS John F Kennedy, who was born 102 years ago today, said this five months and eleven days before his death in 1963, “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.” Do you, Martin Zakharov, care about the implications, for the rights of all men in Maribyrnong, of what was done to me from within your organisation in 2016?
