Australia is in danger of sleepwalking into the future. For decades Australia "slept" through a period of high tariff protection and heavily regulated industries. As a result, by the 1970s it's relative living standards were in decline. The situation was saved by significant reforms instituted from the 1980s through to the early 2000s. Since the late-2000s the country has been resting on its laurels with only minimal reform. There are danger signals everywhere, from the domestic economy to our international relations and the rise of China. This book is a wake-up call for Australia's policymakers.
But still Australia slept, in her out-of-the-way corner, apart from the great streams
of human traffic, a rich and beautiful land waiting for her Fairy Prince to waken
her to greatness. There had been, though, some vague rumours of a great island

I went in search. How many miles it was distant I don't know, but it was a long
day's journey. Arriving at the hut I found the precious pipe, made my pot of tea
and had my supper, and then slept the night on one of the empty berths in the hut

I have no problem with what people believe. I believe our governments when people want to change our way of live, because of what they believe. As a Minister of the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus in this wonderful, peaceful Christian civilization with a Christian heritage and a blessed way of life, Our Lord said, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith? So do not worry, saying 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear? For the pagans run after all these things and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:25-34 - NIV) Remember what Jesus said about today, "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today." We pray our politicians will be faithful 'each day' to punish wickedness, vice and treason and honour our Christian heritage and way of life. I am writing this book with great concern about the direction of our wonderful country. The constant media reports about Britain, France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Greece, Africa and even now the United States of America to start with, are very disturbing. Remember 9/11. And just recently the killing of a priest in his church in France! Where is the love and the peace? As a student of history I was amazed at the excellent works by authors John F Kennedy and Louise Shaw concerning the events in Europe 1932 - 1939. Kennedy wrote "Why England Slept" whereas Shaw examined how the political elite at the time were ineffective. Sir Winston Churchill, who is one of my heroes and whose grave I visited in Bladon, wrote a book "While England Slept." Hence the title of my book, "While Australia Sleeps." I will repeat some of these comments later in this research work for emphasis - simply because Australia is asleep to the infiltration of Islam since 1966. Much of the media reports I would love to use are prohibited due to copyright restrictions - a form of censorship. To me another form of discrimination against true Australians - those who love our country, our system of government - OUR LAWS - which others are ignoring and would wish to overturn. We are the ones being discriminated against since 1966. Hopefully this will be explained later in the case - The Two Dannys. Claims of racial hatred go both ways - or do they? Most true Australians are not racist but PATRIOTS! We are grateful to our forefathers. Our forefathers cared for our welfare and sacrificed their youth and lives; some immigrants care for our welfare? The President of the group to which I belong said Denmark may have 5% Muslim population but they use 40% of the welfare budget. So, I was thinking about the title of this book - Firstly: "Why Australia Slept" Then: "Why is Australia Still Sleeping?" Also: "While Australia Slept" But now: "While Australia Sleeps." So, what's happening? As a Christian Civilization with Christian Heritage and way of life, we are blessed in this wonderful country Australia.
