Women For Freedom # 16 Simone Weil and Anita Ekberg

Today is the 114th birthday of mystical philosopher Simone Weil who wrote: “Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier of the battle lines, which is not so much our enemy as our brothers’ enemy, but the one that calls itself our protector and makes us its slaves. No matter what the circumstances, the worst betrayal will always be to subordinate ourselves to this apparatus and to trample underfoot, in its service, all human values in ourselves and in others.”

In one week, on February 10th, court proceedings, criminal charges, will begin against me, a 65 year old man with no criminal record, for refusing to stop attempting to stand up for an aboriginal or First Nations man who wanted to enter a church and was threatened with arrest.

The Orwellian stupidity and callousness of government and the injustice system in Australia seems to know no bounds.

I take solace in these facts:

A. The best people in churches in Australia know that this sort of thing is wrong. They are a light in what is now for me a very dark life.

B. I can still normally at peace in places of worship and with people devoted to truth and to God.

C. Gazing on the glorious mystique and attractive power of beautiful women is not yet a crime.

Like Anita Ekberg (pictured above and below) whose breakout role as an unattainable star was in la Dolce Vita, which was released 63 years ago on this date in Italy. When Ekberg had earlier played Helene in “War and Peace”, she was billed as “Paramount’s Marilyn Monroe.”

Anita Ekberg got into men’s heads. Because she could. That’s freedom.

Women For Freedom #15 Marylin and Becky and Ana and Dani

Today is the birthday of one of baseball’s greatest ever players, Joe DiMaggio.

Joe is also famous as the husband for nine months of Marylin Monroe. He couldn’t handle being the husband of a sex symbol; she divorced him, but, at the end of her life, he was one of her closest and truest friends. DiMaggio had half a dozen red roses delivered to Marilyn’s crypt three times a week for twenty years after her death. It is said that DiMaggio’s last words, when he died in 1999, were “I’ll finally get to see Marylin.”

Joe’s devotion to Marylin was beautiful. He loved her to the end. Its harder to know what to say about the Kennedy relationship with Marylin.

She was a stunning sex symbol. Jack was a virile married man.

In broader terms, what counts for essential sexual liberation for some is trashing of family life for others. If the fifties were too repressive and if Marylin was a part of the liberation from that repression, she was also very much a victim of the excesses of that social liberation.

Treating women as nothing more than sex objects is to completely devalue the whole of what women can be. Here is a poetic approach from me to understanding that devaluation in this context:

My poetic thoughts on Joe, Jack and Marylin.

In the 50’s and 60’s that sort of objectification mistreatment of women was perhaps less well understood than it is now. Or was perceived and understood differently. The second and third waves of feminism have changed the way these things are seen a heck of lot since Marylin died.

So today I will attempt to channel the spirit of Joe DiMaggio, who wanted to build a family with Marylin, by paying tribute to the varied talents of three wonderful, unselfish freedom fighting women I’ve met this year, two of whom are fantastic mums and all of whom have in them what it takes to be a great mother. Another thing they have in common is that they have all been very good candidates in the current Victorian state election for Australia’s Freedom Party.

First of all is Rebekah Spelman. In helping Becky to write political speeches earlier this year, I engaged with one of the most astute and moral political minds of anybody I have ever met. No one this year that I know of has done more to work for unity in the freedom movement and to actually bring diverse people together than Becky Spelman.

Another beautiful Freedom Party candidate who has won my respect this year is Anastacia Ntouni. Ana is also astonishingly good at bringing people together for freedom. Her Greek DNA makes her a wonderful asset to the preservation of whats left of democracy in Victoria and to the cause of rebuilding it.

Thirdly is a freedom fighting woman with whom I have only had brief interactions, which have shown me that she is a wonderful wife and mother.

I have never seen a more physically beautiful woman in politics that Daniella Heatherich. What is wrong with celebrating that?

Women For Freedom #14 A Christian Lady

On this day in 1861, during the American Civil War, passionate anti slavery campaigner Julia Ward Howe wrote The Battle Hymn Of The Republic. Today I take some of the words of that song, modernising a few of them, and then combine them with images of an Australian Christian woman who regularly stands up against tyranny on the streets of Melbourne.

This anonymous woman is one of the many stalwarts of Melbourne’s freedom movement.

Again and again, I have seen her bring both passionate defiance of tyranny and devotion to Her Lord Jesus Christ to the streets of Melbourne. In this image, she does not look forward to the false promises of a clearway from a Socialist Left police state. She looks to what comes to her from the past, from her faith in Jesus Christ and what He contributed to Western Heritage to give her and so many His followers so much genuine moral strength.

God Bless Her Now And Forever

Women For Freedom # 13 Anastacia Ntouni

Anastacia Ntouni is a politician who believes in freedom properly balanced with discipline in a strong compassionate social order which respects western heritage.

Civilised democracy is in her Greek DNA.

She is appalled by the way most political parties in Australia have deserted the people’s real needs.

God Bless Ana.

God Bless Freedom.

Women For Freedom #11 Di

Formally, Di is a former police officer from New South Wales with wonderfully beautiful eyes that see the need for truth.

But in what Di does, I see a new type of police work to either reform or replace a justice system in Australia which may have been politicised to the point of no return.

I see this brave, honest woman as a new Lady Di to inspire the world.

Di writes:

“I joined the NSW police in 2010. I worked in General Duties and Domestic Violence in a large rural town within the Hunter Valley. I was deployed to the border at Albury/Wodonga when it first closed in July 2020 where I started to question the validity of responses to the pandemic.

I looked into the pandemic responses after realising that the public health orders were contradictory to federal legislation namely the Biosecurity Act and that we did not hold the power to do what was being asked of us. I am now outside the police force because of PTSD.

I am a member of Cops for Truth and Police for Freedom sharing information and raising awareness with other former police from around Australia who have been stood down or been sacked by police forces within Australia.”

God bless Di.

God Bless Truth.

God Bless Freedom.

Women For Freedom # 10 Mel


Registered Nurse Mel is one of Melbourne’s many beautiful dinki-di Australian freedom fighters.

On the 112th anniversary of the death of Florence Nightingale, Mel speaks up loud and clear for truth and freedom in health care.

Against bureaucratic political tyranny which trashes the relationships of trust which Florence Nightingale insisted are crucial to health care.

God bless freedom, truth and Mel.

Women For Freedom #9 Pauline

Modern gender bigotry hurts and separates both men and women in oceans of inhumane distrust and fear. 3 decades as a midwife taught me how far from real human good this dystopian nightmare is.

Central Melbourne freedom fighter and life long nurse Pauline explains what we need to understand to heal from this disease:

“Women are sacred and possess this incredible super power to grow and carry life. Men are important too, and the current BS is making men and women forget how incredibly unique and special we all are, as men and women.”

Women For Freedom #7 Brooke Brooks No Fear

The Melbourne freedom movement cannot be defeated. It might lose many battles but there are too many good, beautiful people, like Brooke, standing up against the stupidity of modern tyrannies, for those on the side of freedom to be defeated.

Eventually, mindless, inhuman government always implodes upon itself and dies.

As John Keats wrote “Beauty is truthtruth beauty,—that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”

And the truth will set us free.
