The IPA tonight held a Christmas drinks function at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra. While the capital is under new administration, the enemy is fighting a rear guard action.
In the splendid Art Deco surroundings of the Hyatt, the packed audience of IPA supporters – who would have thought there were so many defenders of freedom in Canberra? – heard the inestimable Nick Cater, Chris Berg, Simon Breheny and James Paterson give a ringing defence of liberty and freedom and discuss the continuing threat from the Nanny State.
This call to arms is not for the faint-hearted. The campaign will be long and gruelling. The enemies of freedom are well-resourced and numerous. They are particularly exercised to defend their privileges and taxpayer rents.
We are embarked on a cold war. One which must be fought by individuals and small groups – we cannot rely upon politicians to defend freedom. We cannot rely on teachers to defend freedom. We are the people who must take up arms and fight this war. It may take decades to rid the country of the scourge but it is time to exploit the change of government to ram home the advantage.
Are you prepared to fight for freedom?
