Conservatives unwittingly side with the social forces that contribute to the destruction of traditional values.
If you're becoming weary and disillusioned with Australian values, Judeo-Christian values or Western civilisation, I recommend strangers - they're such a glorious, redeeming wilderness to wander into.
