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.
