Letter to The Editor - all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
to THE AUSTRALIAN
The political crisis in Spain involving the secessionist Catalonian campaign reminds us how fortunate we are to live in a firmly united nation, far removed from the possibility of civil war. Or do we?
Various campaigns from left-wing idealists threaten our own stability and security: ‘same-sex marriage’ and a general assault against the church; ‘constitutional recognition’ of our so-called ‘first peoples’; an open doors approach to refugees and immigration; a politicized education system that deliberately muffles the voices of traditional wisdom; the erosion of free speech; anti-American fanaticism, and so on.
Other Australians must not just sit by and let it all happen. Edmund Burke’s famous warning must be heeded: that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
