A Recantation

In 2014, I participated in a demonstration against colonialism that included disrespect towards the Australian flag. I did that in a phase of thinking that arose out of a fresh anger against sins committed against aboriginal peoples in Australia.

Over the last two years I have been maturing towards a different perspective on politics and colonialism, and while I still think aboriginal peoples face injustice, I don’t hold the irrational contempt for western civilization that I did. In fact, I would now call myself classically liberal.

I regret how I participated in anti-colonialism demonstrations and emphatically reject those methods and ideologies.

This post is my recantation.
