This past week, I had the honor of being a speaker at the Alliance for Responsible Citizenship (ARC) Conference in London. The ARC, co-founded by Jordan Peterson and former National Party Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson, is aimed at creating a future where empowered citizens take responsibility and work together to bring about prosperity to their homes, communities, and beyond.
Speaking in front of 1500 conference attendees, I addressed the recent referendum and emphasized the importance of moving on from victimhood and blame towards building a more unified country. I stressed the idea of Australia becoming a place where individuals can contribute to something greater than themselves. The referendum result was a big part of my message, highlighting the need for Australians to recognize the importance of treating all groups of people as individuals rather than as a single block.
I discussed the negative implications of being labeled as a victim due to racial heritage and how this approach can strip individuals of their agency. Additionally, I pointed out that the Yes campaign tried to emotionally manipulate Australians by insinuating that the country was racist and that voting No meant being on the wrong side of history. My message to the conference was clear – we need to empower people and move past identity categories.
As I concluded my speech, I emphasized the need to move away from separatism, division along racial lines, political correctness, and identity politics. The way forward, I stressed, is in recognizing the capabilities of human beings and our ability to empower ourselves without depending on others.
This message resonated strongly with the audience, and I was honored to have the opportunity to share it at such an important event. The spirit of ARC aligns with the message I conveyed – focusing on empowering individuals and moving away from identity-based categorizations in order to focus on real, practical solutions that help people.
My experience at the ARC Conference has inspired me to advocate for and embody the principles of empowerment and unity in my own country. This will involve promoting an inclusive society where individuals are valued for their unique contributions, and where we work together toward a common goal of prosperity and flourishing for all.

Overall, the ARC Conference was a powerful reminder of the importance of empowering individuals and moving past divisive identity politics in order to create a better future for all.
