Dear Mr Abbott
At this half-time break in your distinguished career we, the undersigned, would like to thank you for your decades of selfless public service to your fellow Australians: from saving lives on the beach, saving lives fighting bushfires, to saving the Australian economy from the twin disasters of the Carbon and Mining Taxes.
You fought to keep the Liberal Party from confusing the views of powerful elites for those of ordinary Australians; urging it instead to hold firm to its founding values; the same values which helped build the greatest society ever to exist on earth - Australia. You showed that principle must not be abandoned in the quest for power: power has value only when it is a tool for implementing principles! While you paid the ultimate political price for this stand, in Scott Morrison’s victory you were vindicated. His Government will be that much stronger for your self-sacrifice.
You fell victim in your own seat to the cult of self-destruction that pervades Western elites. The majority voters of Warringah, who owe their affluence in large part to the values which you championed for decades; an affluence which would make them the last to feel the ill effects of the policies they supported and which thus freed them (in their own minds) to vote for social fantasies and to assuage a subconscious, faux success guilt which besets so many of the better off today.
But your great drive and ability cannot be suppressed, only directed to the new opportunities, so we know you’ll be back after taking a well-earned break with family. We’re looking forward to the second half!
