For a quarter century we have seen the foundations of our society weakened and the keystone for future generations,
the family unit, is now in disarray. Beneath us is the quicksand of family disintegration, welfare dependency and a
culture centred on self.
Consecutive governments have increased spending, yet the social decline continues. It is time to accept that the
ideologies that have shaped our society and driven much of our policy in recent times have been found wanting.
The evidence is overwhelming...
But imagine an Australia built on strong families, caring for one another and for their communities.
A country of responsible, compassionate citizens of good character who demand excellence. A place where your
children and your grandchildren live freely and safely. Such a country is within our reach. All it takes is
for passionate, patriotic Australians to become informed and to get active.
If we look at all the things that have helped our great country to survive for these past 200 years we see that
three main principles have endured through thick and thin. These must be protected at all costs, and they are
The Lifelong Family
Intergenerational families are the present-day building blocks on which our future is based. The family and the
web of kinship that surrounds it is the best environment for nurturing people of character. Genuine communities flow
from the commitment of mothers and fathers to their children and grandchildren.
Freedom With Responsibility
Responsible individuals understand and accept the consequences of their decisions.
Freedom is anchored in self-control and respect for each other.
Balancing the role of government in our lives
Individuals and families committed to each other's welfare create the fabric of a thriving community.
Central government's role is to provide a legal and economic environment that encourages free and responsible
family and community behaviour.
