Dai Le, The New Face of Australian Patriotism.

“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.”

Vietnamese Proverb

Dai Le the new independent MP for Fowler gave an emotional maiden speech in parliament on Monday. Cloaked in traditional Vietnamese dress made from fabric printed with the Australian flag, Le stood gracefully, hailing Australia’s embrace of her and her family. Le’s victory over Former Senator Kristina Keneally is one to celebrate and her patriotism as an immigrant should put many traditional and native Australians to shame.

Australia’s immigration system used to operate on the infamous White Australia Policy. It had problems accepting foreigners, especially those from Asia. Only white Europeans were allowed on Australian shores. Hence racial wars and cultural clashes were felt and seen from the ground up, dating way back before 1971. Le’s maiden speech compared with Hanson’s 1996 maiden speech ironically highlights how far Australia has come in crossing racial divides.

Where Hanson’s speech asserted that, Australia was in danger of being “swamped by Asians”, and that these immigrants “have their own culture and religion, form ghettos and do not assimilate” Le’s was about Australia’s “hope, freedom and endless possibilities”. Sadly, Hanson’s flag-waving patriotism was not as well-received. Whilst Hanson’s observations were correct of many immigrants in general, Dai Le and the South-East Asian community have assimilated well into Australian culture.

Dai Le’s parliamentary attire alone, was enough to put Hanson’s 1996 concerns to rest. Many do have their own culture, and have formed a kind of ghetto, as represented by the seat of Fowler. However, values and beliefs are similar. Kinship, gratitude and humility maketh nations great. Le’s presence in parliament on Monday, was a testament to our hospitable country, and the strength and resilience of the Australian-South-East Asian community at large. The privileges Dai Le and her family enjoy today were not simply handed over to them. They, like many Asians of old, worked hard to accomplish all that they have. A far cry from today’s current influx.

Dai Le standing before parliament on Monday drove home anther valid point. That despite the perpetually offended communist class, and the racist greens senators, Australia is a welcoming and multicultural nation. Whilst Le is celebrated for her choice outfit, let’s remember what happened recently to one other Aussie Patriot. Rick Turner, was accused for inciting violence for standing draped in Australian flag on Australia Day. He was violently dragged across the ground and almost lynched. It is interesting to see none of Turner’s accusers at parliament on Monday, ready to lynch Le.

Lydia Thorpe and Adam Bandt are two traitorous Australians born and bred. They thumb their privileged (mostly) white noses at the Australian flag and everything it represents. Australia is in danger of falling to the very woke, very entitled, truly privileged class of fascists who want everything including Australia’s blood and soil. They accuse Australians for stealing land and wiping out a people, yet other voices from the podium tell a different story. The underprivileged, colorful communities show Australians love and gratitude. Guaranteed, they are not receiving half the benefits received by the privileged parliamentary class. Yet Le’s speech recognized the necessity of giving back to community, giving hope to Australia.

Love it or hate it, Australia is a melting pot of diverse ethnicities. Yet racism continues to tar its reputation. When certain groups cannot recognize the blessings and privilege we all enjoy today due to colonisation, they are being racist. The public square is no longer safe and welcoming of all Australians, especially those who pioneered and built it from the ground up. As we reflect on what it truly means to be Australian, let us also remember those who came before us, those who contributed to making this country what it is today, and those who planted those fruit trees many moons ago. Dai Le’s presence in parliament should make us all proud to be Australian.

The Sacred Rainbow-Coloured Cow Strikes Again. Victoria’s 6.8 Million Dollar Gay Pride Festival.

If you haven’t hired a team of people who are of color, female, and/or LGBT to actively turn over every stone, to scope out every nook and cranny, to pop out of every bush, to find every qualified underrepresented founder in this country, you’re going to miss out on a lot of money when the rest of the investment world gets it.
~ Arlan Hamilton

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arlan_Hamilton

Recently, the Andrews Government budgeted almost seven million dollars of Victorian taxpayers’ money over 4 years towards an annual two-month Pride Festival. It is to begin this December after the state election and in the lead-up to the Christmas season and throughout the summer school holidays. The sacred rainbow-colored cow has gone crazy with pride. Breaking out of the proverbial closet, it is ready to buck at anything that moves.

Difficult as it is to believe, Homosexuality and Homosexual acts used to be illegal in Australia as recently as the late 20th Century. In 1975, South Australia was the first state to decriminalise it. Believe it or not, there was a time when sexual perversion was not tolerated. Open sexual displays of affection, even from heterosexual couples was unacceptable. “Get a room!” was the cry of the majority, because honestly, unless one is sick in the head, those acts should be reserved for the intimacy of ones bedroom. Today, however, they have more than their fair share of rights and legalised sodomy laws. A far cry from yesteryears gone by.

Unfortunately, due its increasing powers, it has become an offence to disagree with and/or speak out against their lifestyles. Any attempts at refusing to do their bidding or even refusal to celebrate their ways, is considered offensive and will not be tolerated. The tolerant LGBTQIA+ tolerance has its own boundaries and don’t anyone dare cross it, as many individuals have recently discovered.

Over the last few years alone, politicians, medical experts, sportsmen, and ordinary citizenry have come under fire for daring to speak against or exercise their freedom of conscience. Katherine Deves, an Australian lawyer who ran as a Liberal candidate in this year’s federal election, was victimised simply for recognizing biological facts. In standing against trans women in women’s sports, she was forced to apologise twice to the perpetually offended class. Israel Folau, a Rugby league football legend was crucified and cancelled for daring to express his religious beliefs on his personal platform. British doctor David Mackareth, was sacked for refusing to call a patient by his preferred pronoun. Most recently, Australian political activist Neil Erikson, is sentenced to forty days imprisonment for words spoken out a gay fake church.

Certainly anyone speaking out against the LGBTQIA+ powerhouse has nothing against individuals who live that lifestyle. Ask the majority of people their opinions and they don’t care. Live and let live is the attitude of most. However, the rainbow fascists have no intentions of allowing people who hold such views to live freely. They want to take over and won’t be happy until the whole world is at their footstool.

Already they have so many rights and opportunities to do and say whatever they please. They are widely accepted and tolerated. Diversity and inclusion workplace laws are in place for whoever might feel a little slighted by “violent” words. The whole world is forced to endure their overt, degenerate images. Even children are not safe from their ideology as unisex toilets continue to crop up at even Christian schools all around the country.

This summer we are about to endure mass pornographic imagery on a large scale, parade itself unashamedly before an unwitting, unprepared or confused audience. All this funded by our governments, and paid for with our taxes. One could be walking down the street, when suddenly images of half naked men, or trans women, dancing sensually, could appear before yours or (God forbid) your children’s eyes.

Such an event occurred once annually. This year we have had to endure street parties, parades, and Mardis Gras, all year round. From inner city Melbourne right through to regional Victoria. From “Wear Purple Day” to “Intersex Awareness Day” to “Transgender Day of Remembrance”, the days are accumulating. Christmas and summer will no longer be the same. Gone are the days when families could enjoy a trip to the city to enjoy G-Rated, summer nights and Christmas lights. Instead, they will be faced with X-Rated, sexualised images of debauchery and lewd acts.

It is great LGBTQIA+ community is no longer physically attacked and treated like criminals. They even have their same-sex marriages recognized. They are free to do what they like with their bodies. But at what point does one group’s rights start to encroach and impinge on anothers’? We are facing the beginning of the end when Christian Heterosexuals are no longer free to practice their faith, without being subjected to blatant sexual images, or vexatious litigation. Two months of pride will become a mandatory daily pride fest. Look out if you or your children are not found on bended knees at the sacred cow’s altar.

Climate Change and the worship of Baal.

“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/ecc.3.1-2.nkjv

Climate cultists and green activists have fallen prey to mad, corrupt or misguided scientists. The push to save the planet, keep the coal in the ground and switch to renewable energy have become the latest talking points of every politician, in every seat of govt, and every CEO of every large corporation, in every major city, worldwide. Preserving the planet has become the new religion and the people in power will stop at nothing to protect their faith, even if it means culling the population.

The latest push by many Melbourne local councils in a bid to save the planet, is to increase green waste collection services to weekly and reduce general rubbish collection to fortnightly. The rational behind this illogical move is that it would reduce landfill, and costs associated with rubbish dumping. Anyone with half a brain knows this initiative only prolongs the inevitable. Not to mention, green waste can be used in compost bins for the avid gardener. It makes no sense to increase this collection.

With soaring energy bills threatening the livelihoods of many small businesses across the globe, the pressure for them to comply with climate cultic mandates is being felt at the breadlines. Domestic flights within Europe are also being discouraged and overpriced in hopes more people would Eurail instead. Flying and holidays will soon be reserved for the privileged few who can afford the exorbitant prices.

Anyone living in the reality that exists knows that climate cultists know nothing about economics and if they do, they are just opportunistic, money grubbing whores, feasting at the table of corruption and lies. The earth is their cash cow, and the naive proletariat is more than happy to bow down at its feet with donations galore. Even if that means living in a pod and eating bugs.

Climate cultists tell us we have grown too large in number, that we need to stop procreating, stop eating, stop polluting, stop breathing. They mask us, inject us, and bind us in financial chains. It almost feels like those in high places are laughing hysterically at the sight of masses sacrificing their livelihoods and children all for the sake of this imaginary god. They “worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/rom.1.25.nkjv

This is not a new thing, Christians know people have worshipped the earth for centuries now. The sacrificing of children to Ba’al, the god of weather and agriculture, was common practice in ancient biblical times. Sin knows no boundaries and crosses over all generations. The human tendency is to worship something, God created us that way. If not Him, then Ba’al.

The reality is no amount of sacrifices can stop the planet from going through its necessary cycle. That’s not to say we shouldn’t look after the earth, take care of the animals, and create a circular, sustainable, environment. But if that means totalitarian control over energy sources, what we eat, how we live and how and where to holiday, then it has gone too far. Sadly, climate cuckoos have taken over the coupe and they are rolling out their Zero Emissions 2050 agenda. God help all those who dare stand in their way.

The Pub, The Spit, and The Cult of Intolerance in Political Discourse.

“. . .the narrow ridge is the meeting place of the we”

~~Martin Buber

Jimeone Roberts, an alleged known neo Nazi recently had his beer spat in at an Irish pub because he was sporting a black sun tattoo. The Sonnenrad, or “sun wheel”, is a symbol that was used by the Nazis in Germany. It is also the same symbol used by the Azov Battalion in Ukraine, which many support. The tattoo can be offensive to some, it might even be distasteful and ugly to those who actually know its history, but what kind of society have we become when spitting in people’s beer is acceptable simply because we disagree with their politics. Distasteful as Jimeone‘s politics may be to many, there is no justification for spitting in ones beer. If the young bar tender thought himself far above Jimeone, by spitting in his beer, he put himself at the same level.

There are many examples of this kind of behavior, both online and off. People have become intolerant. The world has become one huge, divisive, ugly, schoolyard. Egging politicians, stickering hateful propaganda, the attacking of alternative news media and mainstream journalists. There are countless more examples. Not to mention trolls and fake accounts online, confidently spew out hatred, causing division and angst with memes, photoshopped pics and doxxing. Such ugly behaviour exists on all sides and has contributed to anger and fear, causing many to flee for safety in echo chambers.

Echo chambers are where political discourse goes to die. Safe spaces wherein individuals discuss political ideas, stroke each other’s egos and pat each other’s backs. Congratulatory, emphatic agreements of mutual hatred towards the enemy litter these platforms. Socio-political and cultural views can never be challenged, tested or proven, leaving individuals emotionally and intellectually immature. Boring, uninspiring, and zombifying, echo chambers are to be avoided at all costs.

Maturity is borne when people can discuss ideas, no matter how distasteful, civilly and respectfully. The dichotomous left/right narrative is designed to encourage genuine, robust discussions. It is why our parliamentary process exists. Parliament House was designed for discussion and debate. It takes courageous people, strong personalities and fearless free thinkers to make great societies. It might get ugly, fiery and contentious, but people are sharpening each other’s minds, gleaning the best of all sides to create what we have come to know as free, liberal democracies.

When discussing political or philosophical ideas, we can all learn from Buber’s philosophy of dialogue. We can all exist on the narrow ridge he speaks of. It is the place where opposing views can meet, where the I-thou or us vs them dichotomy can duel. Often this requires a coming together, mutual consent to listen, understand and respect each other’s minds. Setting aside biases and prejudices for a moment to perhaps get a glimpse of the other side. Sometimes concluding with agreement, concession or conciliation, and more often agreeing to disagree. Sadly, this almost never happens.

The world would be a better place if everyone strived to see things from others’ perspectives or try to understand another’s point of view. The civil thing for that bar tender to do would have been to pour the beer and enter into polite discourse with Jimeone. Not everyone will agree on everything, but we can still be loving and compassionate throughout the process. We need only look to Christ for an example. Christ stands at the centre of the narrow ridge with His arms outstretched, beckoning to all that might listen. It is why He sat with the wine bibbers, and tax collectors, sinners in the eyes of self righteous religious leaders who enjoyed their echo chambers. More people need to be more like Christ.

“And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭9:11-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Neil Erikson Calls Out Sin in the Church.

“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

It is never easy speaking truth, calling out sin, telling people they are wrong. Unless one truly is evil, no one really enjoys confrontation. Most people would much rather keep the peace and mind their own business. Many prefer to bury their heads in the sand and ignore sin altogether. Pretending such things has nothing to do with them, they keep on walking.

Not so with Neil Erikson. On trial again in the county court, he has appealed the magistrate’s original sentence of 10 weeks imprisonment for calling out evil at a post-modern, liberal, self-proclaimed Christian church. Under the guise of Christianity, the “church”, formally based in Hawthorn, was teaching all manner of blasphemies and fallacies to a naive audience who know nothing about Jesus or the Bible.

Sitting in the audience myself, I can testify there were some major flaws in their theology but that is another story. Let’s just say I had some questions which I did not get to ask when Neil stood up requesting to speak. He was invited up to the front where he began to question them on marrying homosexuals. He proceeded to enlighten them on what the Bible says about gay marriage and homosexuality, when the audience stood up in unison and moved forward threateningly.

Fearing for his safety, as they looked ready to lynch him, I also made my way to the front, ready to get in the middle if necessary. However, things did not get violent until later when there was a small physical altercation between Neil and another guy. A little self defense on Neil’s part. Thankfully, nothing but feelings were hurt that night.

According to sanctimonious, woke liberals, words are violent. Neil Erikson may as well have entered the church, gun in hand and shot down the congregation. But that is not what happened. So some people took offence, they got upset. But does that really warrant a lawsuit, jail time or cancellation of a person’s life, name or personhood to the point where he is blacklisted from almost every public event in the country.

Orwell wrote of this very situation in his novel, 1984. “Double think” is the idea that one can hold two contradictory ideas simultaneously. Whilst the church wanted the freedom to preach lies, they were oppressing Neil’s freedom to speak truth. The oppressed becomes the oppressor and round we go on the merry-go-round.

Neil is far from perfect. He definitely has his flaws, like all of us. Anyone claiming to be perfect or better than Neil is deluding themselves. There is none righteous but one Jesus Christ, Whom has said “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭6:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/1co.6.9-10.nkjv

The Bible is clear on Christian truths, homosexuality is a sin. The sin in itself does not bother us, people can sleep with whomever or whatever they like. We have homosexual friends. The issue we have is what it does to God’s word.

A self-proclaiming Christian Church has no business condoning homosexuality, marrying homosexuals and teaching its naive congregation that it is acceptable in the sight of God. It is not to be accepted nor tolerated. Jesus would not have tolerated it as He did not tolerate the money changers in the temple. He “drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.“
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭21:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Neil Erikson did nothing wrong. He was being faithful in acting on his conscience. Calling out sin in the Church is necessary and right. If only more Christians would be so bold and courageous. Could Neil have been more sensitive or gentle in his approach? Perhaps. But John the Baptist called out evil just as ferociously in the face of an adulterous King and his mistress. He said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him” (Mark‬ ‭6:17-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

John the Baptist got his head chopped off, because as we all know, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. The mistress used her daughter to appeal the King. “So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.”” (Matthew‬ ‭14:8‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬

The verdict day for the appeal for which he was able to acquire legal representation, is set for August 29th. The whole ordeal has not been easy for Neil. Representing himself in the Magistrates’ court, it has been an arduous 3 year process of collecting evidence, filing reports, and subpoenas. He has endured much hostility, setbacks and resistance from all those involved, not to mention the public persecution. People want his head on a platter. It is no easy feat exposing these fake churches.

Let’s pray for Neil and all those bold enough to rock the boat for the sake of truth. Let’s pray their faith in Jesus Christ grows ever stronger, that they continue to fight the good fight with wisdom and discernment, knowing which battles are worth fighting.

The Sacred Cow Gone Mad Over The Manly 7.

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity” Martin Luther King, Jr.

There was a time when homosexuals were bashed quite frequently. It used to be a thing as recently as the 20th century. Yes, shocking as it sounds, self-proclaimed Christians and many non-Christians would seek out gays to bash in hopes of setting them straight. Much like the Pharisees and religious hypocrites, they deluded themselves into thinking they were doing God’s work.

Obviously things are extremely different today, to the point that homosexuals are no longer victims. They have become the victimizers. Anyone who does not support or bow down to the LGBTQIA agenda can fall victim to cancel culture and discrimination. They are threatened, harassed, stood down and sidelined.

Like the Manly 7, who refused to play whilst wearing jumpers promoting gay pride. Their refusal, seen as discriminatory and exclusionary, sidelined them. Apparently, Manly did not want to be responsible for young gay boys’ potential suicides. We get it. For decades, gays had it tough.

The moral outrage we have seen from the LGBTQIA community in recent years is to some extent understandable, given the way they were treated in the past. Marginalized, mistreated, bashed and abused, of course it is only natural that they would want revenge. The fear must grip them at the thought of things reverting back to “those” days. So real is it in their minds that they are ready to pounce on every individual or group who by faith acts on their consciences against that lifestyle.

Fear breeds hatred which divides and destroys, fueling more hate. Bloody vengeful pride offered on sacred cow’s alter of diversity or discrimination. It is the cycle of humanity. The story of our sinful nature inherited from our forefathers. Without the transforming power of Christ there is no forgiveness or grace, not for the gay-bashers of old, nor for the vengeful gays anew. All are guilty.

There was an Old Testament time when sinners were stoned to death too, long before God sent grace through His son Jesus. The Old Testament gave the law, and New Testament brought grace. Grace does not mean acceptance and tolerance. It means we do not expect non-Christians to believe in Christian values or act like Christians. We live in the world but we are not of the world. Whilst we do not condone or entertain ones sinful lifestyle, we are also aware of our own very real sinful natures, also not to be tolerated and accepted. So we balance the narrow ridge daily to stay on the straight and narrow by the grace of God. Mercy triumphs over judgement.

God is a God of love, truth and forgiveness. Without Him, the world will tear each other to pieces. The truth does hurt. It hurts because deep down we all know when we are wrong or living outside God’s will. Every man has a conscience. Let everyone live by their conscience, come what may. True justice comes from above, keep your peace as they lay you on their alter. Our day of recompense will come.

Top Gun, Maverick. A Win For The West.

“If you can make one heap of all your winnings, And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings, And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’” Excerpt from Rudyard Kipling’s poem, If.

The fact a movie like Top Gun got past the liberal left loony’s veto system and made it to the box office, only to smash box office hits, was nothing short of miraculous. It is indicative that hope lives on for America and by extension the West. Released in the same year Roe v Wade was overturned, the timing is impeccable.

Unsurprisingly, it still attracted its fair share of criticism from the perpetually offended left. Criticized for being too patriarchal, too white, too masculine, and too clean, did not matter as it just felt good to get a few points on the scoreboard again. The year 2022 seems to be one of small victories for conservative Christians.

Whilst Top Gun did not meet all the requirements of the Marxist feminazi purveyors of neo-liberal propaganda, it still met the basic requirements. One could not miss the racial diversity, and gender equality screaming at us through the screen. Most importantly, it ticked all the “right” boxes for the “right” people. It was nostalgically patriotic, with the American flag looming large at every opportunity.

Love him or hate him, Tom Cruise produced a winner in Maverick. An actor not well-known for his depth of character, he exhibited a refreshingly deeper side as an older, more reflective Maverick. Capturing his character well, he gave him the opportunity to shine. One could almost forget he was played by Cruise himself. If this is his last Hollywood film, it would be appropriate. It is by far his best, and he goes out with a bang.

Friendship, loyalty and mentorship were interwoven scarlet threads in a tapestry of truly creative story telling. Connecting past, present and future it built on each main character, adding depth to an otherwise action-packed film about high testosterone men with entertaining jet fighting skills. Maverick taking on the father figure role in Rooster’s life for Goose, was a selfless act at a time when fatherlessness is a growing epidemic. Despite the competitive history between them, Iceman filled the void in Maverick’s life for kinship and loyalty, reflecting the traditional, reciprocal nature of family and community.

Maverick’s love interest Penny was gorgeous and unlike many older female actors, was not botoxed to the eyeballs. Although divorced, she still practiced good dating habits as an example for her own daughter. The love scenes were unusually clean, so no need to worry about cringing through semi-pornographic footage in a cinema full of strangers.

Maverick’s ability to live his career unfazed by his rank as Captain and his reputation for coming in second place, was admirable. Unmotivated by accolades or stifling theoretical text book maneuvers, he was a true renegade. He did his own thing, and was confident in his own experience, and flying abilities. True to himself, he lived an authentic life by refusing the hierarchical ladder, and resisting the system’s desire to box him into their idea of success.

Respecting the generational divide, whilst defying the aging process, Maverick courageously led by example. Exercising experience with skill and knowledge, he achieved the almost impossible task, without patronizing his younger counterparts. Despite the setbacks and lack of support, he never gave up. It was difficult for anyone, even his critics, not to respect him.

One could argue his attitude was reflective of the prolife movement. In a world where murdering babies has become the norm, the group of justices in the highest judiciary defied the culture. Despite intimidation tactics from the opposition, they each risked everything for the sake of their values and beliefs to do what’s right.

Top Gun’s counter-cultural narrative respected the patriot, the patriarchy and the parent. It did not succumb to the usual political correctness which has killed the authenticity of almost every Hollywood movie in the 21st century. Just like the US Supreme Court’s landmark decision, this film was years in the making. Its success gives underdogs worldwide, hope that some things are worth waiting and fighting for. Whilst evil globalists do their best to destroy all that’s good and right and just, light still shines through darkness. Keep holding on!

They Are Brainwashing Your Children. Lego Movie Marxism.

Emmett Brickowoski: Oh, my gosh! I love this song! “Everything is awesome. Everything is cool when you’re part of a team. Everything is awesome when you’re living out a dream.”

The made-for-children Lego Movie is about good vs evil. It is set in a fictional Lego universe with a deeply sinister underbelly determined to destroy it from the foundations up. Centered around the main character Emmett Brickowski, we watch him transform throughout the film, from ordinary Lego citizen obedient to the system, to unwitting participant in a political revolution. To the untrained mind, it may seem he is the hero doing good, but he is merely a puppet, a pawn used as part of a bigger plan. Rife with propagandistic undertones, designed to subvert children’s innocent minds, things are not what they seem as Emmett becomes complicit in the destruction of Lego Land.

The distinct class differences and personality traits that run parallel with real life are obvious. There is the ruling class made up of one Lord Business, creator of Lego land with his army of protective officers who help keep the land running smoothly. Then there is the working class, who are seemingly unquestioningly content with their lives. They work diligently, plodding along earning a living. Lastly, there is the insurgent class, who refuse to recognize Lord Business as their creator. Self-proclaimed Master Builders, they consider themselves superior to him because they can build without instruction manuals. These are the ones who want to destroy Lego land, deface it and tear away at its moral foundations.

The movie opens with construction workers dancing uniformly, and in sync. Clearly content, productive members in their community, they sing the latest hit song, “Everything’s Awesome”. Emmet takes centre stage whilst performing compliance checks, and adhering to strict OH & S protocols. He keeps the team on track with projects, maintaining order and basically following all the rules.

Emmett, like many in life is a well-intentioned, arguably perfect citizen. Portrayed as a simpleton, he makes for the perfect middle man as he knows well how to follow orders. Sadly his destructive flaw is his shallow, naively simplistic worldview. It is not long before he is seduced into a kind of hypnotic state by an encounter with the woman, Wyldstyle. Questioning nothing, he blindly follows her into a literal abyss where she is searching for The Piece of Resistance. This is the lid to the super glue Lord Business uses to protect Lego Land from being subverted by the over zealous group of morally corrupt detractors. Unlike the others, Emmett cannot build without instructions. Nevertheless, he is used to stop Lord Business from super gluing lego world into permanent perfection.

Unfortunately, this movie is shown to millions of children worldwide who, like Emmett, will also be deceived. That Emmett is the hero of the movie is a complete fallacy. His lack of consciousness made him the perfect tool used to destroy Lego Land. It is sad that he could not discern the lies and deception of the rebel class. Rather the audience will see Emmett as the nice guy who fell in love and fought hard for the woman to save Lego Land from the nefarious Lord Business. A racist, bigoted extremist who waves his gun threateningly at anyone who desires change.

In fact, Lego Land is overseen by a loving creator who constantly falls under attack by nefarious rebels. Though Lord Business is seen as the antagonist, he is the real hero. He is doing a good work gluing broken or missing pieces together. Society needs structure, order, community, shared goals, security, and someone to keep it together. Without all that, we find ourselves in a chaotic mess, with people who don’t know what they are, where they came from or where they are going.

A forgotten God, corrupt leadership, and a lack of foundational instructions, led to feminism, transgenderism, sexual deviancy, all kinds of degeneracy, and cancel culture. We need Lord Business, we need His instructions and we need His glue.

The Autism in Melancholic Christian Hedonism.

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair” Charles Dickens.

Growing up, we all had to deal with being socially awkward. We called it the in- between (tween) or teen years. Some of us were more socially adept than others (likely due to intentional parenting) and learned quickly, but there were the odd balls who, either through neglect or having odd parents themselves, had to wade through the real world to become socially “normalised” the hard way. Many came through the other end relatively unscathed and better adults as a result.

Today however, those odd balls are moved from one school to another due to “bullying”. Mollycoddled, medicated and labeled as autists, they are not being taught how to deal with conflict or adjust their behavior in order to get through an important stage of life which strengthens and builds up character. Consequently, we have lost a generation of potentially free-thinking adults to pharmaceutical companies and lazy psycho-babblers hell-bent on robbing individuals of true agency, rendering them impotent. Many may never find freedom from their micro-plastic, rootless lives to attain higher living or the great purpose for their existence. Yet there is hope in Christ.

Freedom in Christ

Contrary to Nietzsche’s analysis, God is not dead. God in Christ was not a weak-willed “yes man” who preached a passive gospel. Just because a man is gentle does not make him weak. Just because a man refuses the power and wealth of this world does not make him passive. His strength was in His endurance, His love in His dying, His power in His resurrection and His justice will be in His returning.

The Übermenschen Nietzsche speaks of IS the Christian living authentically in Christ. It is pushing through the uncomfortableness, the struggle and often the pain of being different, odd or peculiar. Standing strong through it, we build up those back bones in Christ, knowing we will have our rewards, not only eternally but also in the present life.

Life is richer, fuller, deeper and more meaningful when we embrace conflict. The Christian does not shy away from challenges. As a consequence, commitments are long-lasting, more satisfying. We can smile and thrive through hardships, knowing their worth. There’s not a trail of broken relationships, burnt bridges and string of shallow friendships when we act as people with agency.

Christ set the example for us. He wasn’t fickle, tossed by every wind of doctrine or moved by His feelings. He was hyper-fixated on His assured victory, allowing nothing get in the way. His foundation sure, He knew to whom He belonged. He knew who He was and where He was going. Some might even say he was on the autism spectrum.

“But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Risen.

Pilate: Your ambition is noticed. Where do you think it will lead? Clavius: Rome. Pilate: And? Clavius: Position. Power. Pilate: Which brings? Clavius: Wealth. A good family. Someday a place in the country. Pilate: Where you’ll find? Clavius: An end to travail. A day without death. Peace. Pilate: All that for peace. Is there no other way?

By far, Risen is the best movie ever made on Jesus’ death and resurrection told through the eyes of pagan soldier, Clavius. With startling accuracy we watch his journey following Jesus’ crucifixion as he evolves from obedient Roman pagan to Christian Übermensch. Clavius is about to find out there is another way which leads to peace.

No different to today’s political oligarchy, Risen exposes man’s fear and deceitful suppression of truth. The collaboration between Pagan Empire and hypocritical religious leaders, their lies surrounding Jesus’ empty tomb, and persecution of His disciples, culminate in a pagan soldier’s discovery of truth.

Clavius discovers “a day without death” requires a daily dying to self and a peace in Christ no other can give. Personally, I couldn’t help but love Clavius’ character from the beginning. His bravery, integrity and desire for truth was apparent in the way he served Rome. Played by Joseph Fiennes made him also easy on the eyes, but I digress.

Clavius’ transformation from pagan to believer in Christ was beautiful to behold. But I’m a glutton for Christlike transformations, likely why I find myself associating with the most unlikely people. My hope for all, no matter how lost or broken they seem, is that they find life in Christ.

Add this movie to your list!
