Victory seems assured for those who value Western civilisation and who, unlike the Chris Kennys of this country, have also managed to avoid being dumbstruck by kumbaya. But will the rejection of the Voice make any difference? That is my question.
Anthony Albanese said something insightful the other day. Yes, it happens. When asked about a national treaty he deflected by saying that treaties were in process of being negotiated in Victoria and in Queensland. Territories aside, Australia comprises six sovereign states, each with its own parliament, government, premier and His Majesty’s governor. They might not be able to make treaties with China but they can with selective elements of their populations, and they will; and with taxpayer money galore.
Before too long, we’ll see each state concocting a “treaty” to mollify and selectively reward a small but growing group of people (indeed, the “oppressed” are outgrowing the rest) identifying as having some, often heavily diluted, Aboriginal ancestry. There will be no effective opposition to this insidious apartheid. A rump of the Nationals might put up some resistance but their Coalition colleagues are now mostly compromised, pantywaisted or pink tinged. Even as it is, the states are moving towards preferencing indigenous cultural norms, whether ancient or modern inventions.
We have recently seen the Western Australian government bringing in a pernicious Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act, requiring those who think they legally own more than 1100 square meters of land to get Aboriginal permission to dig even a small hole in it. True, grassroots opposition has reportedly convinced the government to rescind the legislation. But the fact that they tried it on shows just how far things have gone. And all without a treaty or the Voice.
The Victoria government has agreed to hand the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk peoples, represented by the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, powers (inter alia) to rename roads, bridges and public spaces over an area of almost 36,000 square kilometres – currently administered by ten local councils. Google maps will have to get up to speed quick smart. Let’s hope our felicity with hundreds of primitive languages improves or we’ll have trouble finding our way around. And does anyone think the job is finished? Heck no, there’s another 191,000 square kilometres of Victoria to go. And, again, without “benefit” of the Voice.
The evidently hopeless, though very well-funded and staffed, National Indigenous Australians Agency, which reports to the equally hopeless Linda Burney, and whose vision is that “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are heard, recognised and empowered,” says that about 50 percent of the Australian land mass is now under Native Title. Half of Australia already! How much worse can it possibly get, Voice or no Voice?
If you’re confused, can’t grasp what’s going on, it’s because of an absence of context. Context, by example, is the enforced takeover of Calvary Hospital in Canberra and the subsequent removal of crosses. An act of bastardry which would not have stood only a very little time ago. Now, there is no overwhelming public outcry, no thunderous editorials, no prime ministerial (Howard-like) veto, no legal overturning. Communism, having snuck up, is out of the closet.
And what is communism? Among other things, it’s communal ownership of land. Think native title. It’s the fraying of private property rights. Think of dreamt-up cultural and spiritual connections to the land and seas. It’s the undermining of Christianity; a bulwark against communism. Think of the anti-Catholic partiality of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and the subsequent persecution of George Pell. It’s the undermining of the traditional family. Think of a lot of things, including confected gender dysphoria, abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, and the perverted sexualisation of children. Add to the list, mass cross-cultural immigration to undermine the cohesion of the nation state; and the “climate change” and pandemic hysterias, phony rationales for tyranny.
No-one is in a backroom planning it all. But the march through institutions is an empirical reality. It’s produced a mindset among public officials, among politicians, among academics, among the great and good, which despises Western civilisation and capitalism. You can’t understand the joint support of governments, unions and corporate elites for a divisive racial provision in the constitution, unless you understand the march of communism; of which the Voice is a peculiarly Australian-made facet. Conspiratorial? I don’t think so.
