Sir Robert Menzies – The Melbourne Traditionalists Episode Thirteen


With each episode of Melbourne Traditionalists we tease out a little more of the truth regarding Australia’s 20th century history. After a preamble discussing the recent Melbourne Traditionalists conference, Mark Moncrieff of Upon Hope and David Hiscox discuss passages of Sir Robert Menzies’ own writing which demonstrates that the Liberal Party was doomed to betray Australians from the very start, because its intellectual grounding was in Liberalism, not tradition or nationalism.

Thus, while Gough Whitlam has the reputation as the PM who ended the White Australia Policy, the Liberal Party had essentially dismantled it by the time he came to power.

Here are also several previous episodes of Melbourne Traditionalists, where Mark Moncrieff interviews Mark Richardson from Oz Conservative about his political development and the origins of Liberal thought.
