37 Click for next There are deep psychological reasons why using accurate language is important. People who argue this fact demonstrate their regrettable ignorance.

38 The ignorance of far too many in our society is a MAJOR reason why we are losing the Australia we love. Click for next

39 add pride (arrogance) and the result is socially-destructive ignorant arrogance. Click for next

40 add pride (arrogance) and the socially-deadly combination of ignorant arrogance manifests. Click for next

41 A nation that expects to be ignorant and yet remain civilised and free, expects what never was and never will be. Thomas Jefferson 1796

42 Click for next The Fall of the Roman Empire The decline and fall of the Roman Empire was as much due to the internal disintegration of the ties that bind a society together as to the assaults by Rome s external enemies. The privilege and sense of duty of being a Roman citizen was destroyed by cheapening that citizenship by freely giving it to too many other people.

43 Click for next A critically important sense of duty and responsibility had eroded among the Romans. Without that, the Roman Empire could not survive. Without that, Australia also will not survive. Tangible wealth and power are not enough to save a nation. The tangibles do not work without the intangibles." - Thomas Sowell (adapted)

44 Our national way of thinking is one of the important intangibles currently damaging to our nations wellness. True Australians from times past had a different, more humble and realistic way of thinking. Their way of thinking, not ours, built the fantastic Australia that we inherited. Click for next

45 A conscious and deliberate change in our thinking will change our national attitude, Click for next

46 and give us a far greater sense of duty and responsibility, therefore making us far more capable of rescuing and protecting our national culture, our heritage and our civilisation. Click for next

47 Changing the words we use will change our thinking and our attitudes. Click for next For the better!

48 When people are humble and grateful [ and NOT arrogantly proud ] they are more appreciative of what they have. Click for next

49 They will be far more aware of what they stand to lose…. Click for next

51 Changing the words we use will change our thinking and our attitudes. Click for next
