I value the principles which became the hallmarks of Western democracy, made possible by the Age of Reason; religious tolerance (a wall between religion and state), a commitment to scientific inquiry, the emancipation of women and children, a free and un-coerced media, and individual rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These core ideas are the beating heart of our civilisation and what make it a place worth thriving in - and dying for, as so many of our recent forefathers took it upon themselves to do.
