When Australians unite they form a great nation; history tells us so and yet now, when we are facing our greatest challenges including the current economic crisis; global warming and climate change, we stand divided. We have been deliberately divided by those without vision; without truth; those who are only interested in their own wealth and personal gain. We should be proud and very happy for the fact that we have suffered little compared to overseas countries because of the world’s financial collapse.
Our governments over the past decades; since World War 2 have done a pretty good job on economics, including the Rudd Government. A hostile and divisive senate; a hostile and divisive opposition generating negativity does Australia no good at all. This is a time to think positively and to develop solutions; to unite and set new goals.
There is no doubt we have made our planet (our home) sick. I think we can fix our planet and build a better, cleaner and smarter economic system based on true sustainability. Human beings are nature’s greatest evolutionary achievement and we can achieve anything, as long as we have the will to do so, but only if we unite.
Why do we need wars to unite us? Surely saving our planet for our children, grandchildren and future generations is worth uniting for. We need to redefine our values and base them on honesty, integrity, love, caring and sharing.
