We Believe

We believe in:

  • In Australia, its people and its future.
  • In the innate worth of the individual, in the right to be independent, to own property and to achieve, and in the need to encourage initiative and personal responsibility.
  • In the basic freedoms of thought, worship, speech, association and choice.
  • In equality of opportunity, with all Australians having the opportunity to reach their full potential in a tolerant national community.
  • In a just and humane society, where those who cannot provide for themselves can live in dignity.
  • In the family as the primary institution for fostering the values on which a cohesive society is built.
  • In the creation of wealth and in competitive enterprise, consumer choice and reward for effort as the proven means of providing prosperity for all Australians.
  • In the principle of mutual obligation, whereby those in receipt of government benefits make some form of contribution to the community in return, where this is appropriate.
  • In the importance of voluntary effort and voluntary organizations such as clubs, associations, charities and community groups.
  • In parliamentary democracy as the best system for the expression and fulfillment of the aspirations of a free people.
  • In the separation and distribution of powers as the best protection for the democratic process.
  • In a federal system of government and the decentralization of power, with local decisions being made at the local level.
  • In a constitutional head of state as a symbol of unity and continuity.
  • In government being sufficiently responsive so that it can meet its proper obligations to its citizens.
  • In government keeping to its core business and not competing with the private sector.
  • In the rule of law and justice, giving all citizens equal rights under the law, responsibilities to maintain it, and the freedom to change it.
  • In Australia playing a constructive role in the pursuit and maintenance of international peace in alliance with other free nations and in assisting less advantaged peoples.
  • In Liberalism, with its emphasis on the individual and enterprise, as the political philosophy best able to meet the demands and challenges of the 21st century.
