Invitation to Book Launch


Geoffrey Blainey will launch The Fortunate
at 7:00 pm on Thursday 1st September
at the East Melbourne Library, 122 George Street

The philosophers of the Enlightenment told us that liberty works and that prosperity flows from it. Two hundred years of history has shown us that this is true - that it works in practice. Moreover, it applies, not just in the Anglosphere or in the developed world. The concepts are valid universally.

Societies which have embraced liberal democratic principles – individual rights, private property, the rule of law, and representative government – have thrived. Now everyone can live happy, prosperous and meaningful lives if they and their leaders choose to build their societies on these principles.

We should be proud of our heritage, confident in our achievements, and prepared to fight anyone who might seek to destroy our way of life.

We are the fortunate. Let’s keep it that way.

The Fortunate is published by Connor Court.

It is available on-line from Amazon, Blackwells, and Booktopia

or at your favourite bookstore or library.
