An update from Captain Australia

 

Hello Citizens

Having been inactive for a long time, I just wanted to let you know that I’m still alive, and still believe deeply in the simple fact that we all, each of us, have an obligation to make the world a better place – to turn society from the road of apathy, terror, mindless consumerism, underlying rage..

I still believe that in my heart and my bones. Lately I’ve been especially troubled by our political leaders. With all the grace, finesse and honesty of a teenage shoplifter at Woolworths, they appear to be playing an evil game of misdirection and manipulation, something that disturbs me greatly.  Powers behind the figureheads, in the media and industry, dress the stage and manipulate the players, and ultimately, as always, it’s innocent people in the public who wind up somehow being the victims.

I still believe that together, we can take the world to a place of respect, understanding and peace.

But .. my son .. it’s all about my boy.  I cannot disclose too much, as it’s crucial that I protect my secret identity – but I have had a significant life change with regard to the care of my child, and it’s made me have to pull away from my Quest and commit all of my time and resources to him.

I’ve had to take time away from Captain Australia, and I don’t know when I’ll be back again. I’ve gotten involved with a home business, and really I’m just trying to maximise the time that I can have helping my son.  It leaves very little room for changing the world.

I just want to share with you, the public .. please .. take up my Quest .. see my failure for what it is .. one man trying to do something impossible .. something that we can only achieve by working together.

If it sounds daunting .. just do this .. today .. tomorrow .. the next day .. do one kind thing. Smile when you might otherwise frown. Please find goodness in your fellow human beings.

It’s there, I swear it is. But the world has somehow become contaminated. Honesty, Fidelity, Moral correctness .. these things are almost jokes in the public eye.

Change that. Please .. do whatever you can.

Sincerely,

Your friend,

Captain Australia

“One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world was better for this”

by Captain Australia1 May 2011

Captain Australia’s Journal, Entry#91 Tomorrow night (Tuesday 3 May @ 8:30pm), I’ll appear on the ABC program “Good Game”, talking about games, online culture, cyber bullying and morality in computer games.  I hope that I say something meaningful – and if not, I hope it’s at least worth a giggle, and attracts some people to [...]

Smart enough to know better

by Captain Australia17 April 2011

Captain Australia’s Journal, Entry#90 I did an in-depth interview with the boys from “”.  Click on the link if you’d like to listen: they’re intelligent, literate and funny, worth the visit. My personal favourite question was: “What about weapons, do you have an aussie version of the batarang ?” That’d be called a boomerang, mate. [...]

Captain Australia’s Journal, Entry#89 Still off-duty while I attend to secret identity business (birth of my second son), with an intent to resume active city patrols some time in May.  In the meantime, working with candidate side-kicks and some like-minded colleagues to form We’ll be putting together a Mission Statement, and attracting a group of [...]

Captain Australia’s Journal, Entry#88 Averaging about 4 hours sleep a day, the rest of my time is spent juggling obligations under my secret identity, and finding time every day to come online and correspond with people who have questions, comments, requests and challenges. In the coming month or so, I hope to find more time [...]

“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.” – Gandhi

by Captain Australia16 March 2011

Captain Australia’s Journal, Entry#87 I’ve pulled “crime fighting” out of the journal notation, not because it isn’t an important part of what I do, but because it’s misleading.  I should probably sign in with “Captain Australia’s Evil Fighting Good Deed Doing Inspire Others Journal” but that’s just too much of a mouthful. Last night I [...]

“If you come to fame not knowing who you are, it will define who you are” – Oprah Winfrey

by Captain Australia15 March 2011

Captain Australia’s Crime Fighting Journal, Entry#86 All this public attention could not have come at a worse time, as right now I am grappling with some profound obligations under my secret identity.  I’m quite staggered by the level of public support, and also by some of the threats and the hate. Thankfully, my mission is [...]

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed. It is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

by Captain Australia10 March 2011

Captain Australia’s Crime Fighting Journal, Entry#85 Since the explosion of media interest generated by the ‘A Current Affair’ story, I’ve been struggling simply to keep up with the volume of questions from the public.  If I’ve missed you, I sincerely apologise, and mean you no disrespect. The obligations under my secret identity are similarly quite [...]

“Fame means millions of people have the wrong idea of who you are.”

by Captain Australia21 January 2011

Captain Australia’s Crime Fighting Journal, Entry#84 It’s been a long time since my last journal entry, too long. If you’ve been following my career as the masked crime-fighter and do-gooder, Captain Australia, you will know that I have a young child due to be born any day now.  I can’t share more detail without risking [...]
