And once there were communists.......
Now we have another totalitarian ideology to resist and conquer.
Saw that same programme last night, Gwenith. First time I've ever seen an Indonesian speak with a distinctly, almost Queen's english, accent!!!
Why is it that WE,
the Aussies, are the ones who have to make the changes??
I'm all for walking together long enough and talking together long enough, and eventually, we'll understand each other. But ... apart from David Hicks, ( and he's yet to be proven guilty), I don't see any other Aussies committing acts of terrorisim.
Quite frankly, I'm sick to death of hearing that Australians are racist, prejudiced, "white australia" policy thinking, bigots! We are NONE
of those things! Certainly not collectively, anyway.
As one very ordinary
individual human being, the only way I can see for me to DO
something about fighting terrorism, is to act locally. Be the best person, mother, wife, friend, neighbour, etc,I can, and treat others, as I myself, would wish to be treated. I'm 'too old'
for the military, they won't take me. Don't qualify to join the intelligence organisations. Remember, I said I'm a very ordinary
And have absolutely NO
desire to become a mercenary! Sooo... that leaves, what? Me doing 'my bit' as best I can within my limited resources.
Just my 'two bob's worth'. ( twenty cents for those who don't know what 'two bob' is) It's an 'Aussie-ism'!
