Looking from above
RECENTLY, I had the thrilling opportunity to fly over our 36,017-hectare property I have called home for the past 18 years. I was amazed at the bird’s eye view afforded from the cockpit of a Tecnam aircraft, and was dazzled by the colours of the soil that was starkly naked, with no grass cover to tenderly hide the variation.
The landscape alternated from smooth, like skin of a youth, to the wrinkles and roughness that age affords. What I knew, just from studying the landscape while being bonded to the ground, became the complete picture from the air.
This brought me to thinking about the problems that loom large for our nation, which seem insurmountable, especially when viewed from the confines of the latest news reports, and the myopic approach of the politicians and bureaucracy, whose agenda seems to be more wedded to outside global interests then to the citizens of this mighty land.
How will agricultural Australia weather the “storm” when rural and regional Australia seems to be falling apart at the seams? Far too many local small town businesses are pulling the doors shut, unable to continue to exist with the unprecedented levels of debt due to this protracted dry.
Who has the extra resources to ensure they have enough money stashed away for when the river of finance has been choked back to a small trickle?
And yet how, for a land of such extremes, did our governments have an “ad hoc, on the run, let’s pretend it’s not happening” approach to agriculture and the nation’s food producers, having dismantled the nation’s drought policy 10 years ago and put nothing of substance in its place?
A plan seems to be afoot to eradicate people from the vast inland, leaving it to the global corporates or China to control. People are leaving rural and regional Australia in droves, forced off by debt and despair.
The world’s environmental non-government organisations have unprecedented power given to them by the UN.
Their global tentacles force weak governments to bow down to their relentless pressure. Agriculture, of course, is the prime target, as a nation is only as strong as its food supply. These ENGOs use the mantra of climate change, destruction of the environment through unsustainable population numbers and unsubstantiated claims of widespread animal cruelty in agriculture.
Agenda 21 and now Agenda 2030 from the UN is usurping the sovereignty of any nation that has signed up. My question is, when will the nation finally arise from its stupor and see how we have been hoodwinked into believing a global lie that will force the generations to come into servitude?
Trying to fight spot fires is useless if the major bushfire is left to blaze unchecked.
Only when the big picture is able to be seen, then the true battle plan can then be put into place. Australia must exit the UN now.
