Your support in the fight for freedom, sovereignty and common sense conservatism is important!I almost didn’t put out this newsletter…Nation First almost threw in the towel due to a family mini-drama but then realised there was a lesson in it to share!George ChristensenAug 25Dear friend,I almost didn’t put out a newsletter today.You see, my two-year-old daughter has had a shocking cold with a chesty cough for a few days now and it just won’t shift.Last night, her mum had applied a healthy dose of Vicks Baby Balsam to her chest and back and then left her alone in her room for a few minutes.When I walked into the room a little while later, our toddler had managed to open the Vicks and was in the process of smearing the entire tub all over her face and upper body.It’s lucky she didn’t get it in her eyes.The next few hours were spent cleaning her up, dealing with her cough and cold and trying to put a very agitated little girl to sleep (which nixed the nightly research and preparation for today’s newsletter).And so I was about to throw in the towel.But then I realised there was lesson in what my little girl had done that’s worth sharing.Why?Because we do the same thing as what she did. And by ‘we’, I mean society and our governments.We see a problem like COVID and instead of a measured reaction we apply lockdowns, curfews, bans on protests and gatherings, mask mandates and vaccine mandates and then we top it off with societal division and segregation.Unlike my little girl, we went so hard in scooping everything out of the jar and smearing ourselves with it (for the sake of a virus with 0.27 per cent infection fatality rate) that our eyes are still stinging and will be some time.And despite all of those authoritarian measures being proven, by real world experience, to be completely and utterly useless in dealing with the ‘pandemic’ or COVID, there are still people calling for their return.Our governments then reacted to the economic hardship that was about to unfold, principally because of the ‘pandemic’ measures that they enacted.The answer should have been to provide targeted assistance while also getting as many industries back to work as soon as we realised COVID wasn’t the plague.Instead, we emptied the jar and then some with a COVID stimulus cash splash.Australians got $750 a week to stay at home and watch Netflix while small business struggled to find anyone willing to work for them.And once again our eyes are going to be stinging for some time as the resultant inflation — from spending too much money — continues to spiral out of control.Away from the ‘pandemic’, we see even societal issues like racism being dealt with similarly.Of course the structural racism of Australia’s past may have hindered some Aboriginal people from getting ahead.But instead of a measured response of seriously targeting areas of disadvantage, we smear ourselves with virtue signalling and wokery.The other day, a friend told me about his young child who asked him why white people stole the Aboriginal peoples’ land. His son was actually told that at preschool! Why punish kids with such guilt trips for sins of the past, especially when that same sin of conquest has happened in just about every nation, in just about every culture and in just about every age of humanity?Why does Australia need to insert a racist clause into its constitution (as the government plans to do) that sets up a new de facto chamber of parliament which has the colour of your skin as its membership and voting criteria?We over-egg it with sexuality too.I certainly recall my school years and the wholly inappropriate homophobic bullying that went on against certain kids.But instead of just dealing with such bullying, schools today run programs where girls who are a bit boyish are taught to bind their chests, where boys who are bit effeminate are taught to tuck their groins, and where both of them are taught to go on puberty blockers and get hormonal and surgical treatment without parental consent.The tub is empty, folks, and our eyes are well and truly stinging!Away from cultural matters, we also know have a big problem with our global economic system.True capitalism — the free enterprise system — is supposed to be based on the natural economy where people use their initiative, talents and hard work to generate not only rewards for themselves but rewards for others as well.The natural economy creates a connected community where the fruits of our skills and labour are given to others who can’t do what we do and, in return, we enjoy the fruits of the skills and labour of others who can do what we can’t.But the corporate behemoths that control the global marketplace and the politicians who have had their palms greased by those behemoths have corrupted capitalism.They now call it crony capitalism.And it’s resulted in some huge disparities in wealth and ownership.The World Inequality Lab has worked out that the “wealth of richest individuals on earth has grown at 6 to 9% per year since 1995” and that, in those past 27 years, the share of global wealth owned by billionaires has tripled, with 2020 marking “the steepest increase in global billionaires’ share of wealth on record”.So there is a problem. A big problem.But instead of dealing with the corruption of capitalism by multinational corporations and interfering governments, Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF) propose a Great Reset.This will be where those corporations and governments get even closer, so much so that both are somehow going to be responsible for managing societal issues.Together they will “build back better” or so the Great Reset slogan goes.Let’s get this straight.The problems of the global economy have been caused by corporations and governments being too close… and the WEF proposes to fix the system by making corporations and governments even closer?To come up with that one, Klaus and the Davos ‘elite’ are certainly smearing something all over the place, but it sure ain’t Vicks.Until tomorrow, God bless you, your family and our nation.Take care,George ChristensenP.S.
