LETTER: Australia shouldn’t appease Beijing

I am disgusted by the number of Federal politicians who would seek to slavishly appease the dictatorial and expansionist Chinese (Beijing) government.

Appeasement failed against the Nazi German government in the 1930’s and triggered World War 2 with the loss of millions of lives.

Totalitarian regimes must be confronted head-on.

Otherwise, history is doomed to repeat itself.

I applaud the WA Liberal politician, Andrew Hastie, for standing up for this country and its democratic values.
