And I am pleading for my place in the world, which happens to be Oz, founded in 1788 after 100 years of peaceful aristocratic ascendency in Britain.
So we are imbued with the values of the Enlightenment, aristocratic values, and peace.
And these values have served us well for 222 years.
And our moral and material success is highlighted by comparison with the USA, South America and Continental Europe.
For we gained our independence and united a whole Continent without killing anyone. Quite unlike the USA who fought an eight year war of treachery against the Crown which they call the War of Independence, and then like all revolutionaries the USA went on to eat their children in their bloody Civil War.
And unlike South America, we federated a whole Continent under the Common Law. And unlike South America we avoided dictatorship and economic and cultural dependence on the USA. Oz was lucky enough to escape the Munroe Doctrine of the USA.
South America has a baroque system of law and government, while Oz has a gothic system of law and government. So South America tries to be centralized from general principles down to the particular. While Oz starts with the particulars and builds up to general principles. Our Common Law is perfect example of this gothic principle.
And as you so well point out, we were not influenced by Continental anti-semitism.
It's good to hear from you.
