Which brings us back to the future we choose to construct for ourselves here in this our own region.

Former Australian PM Keven Rudd once said in his speech:

As I said last month at the Singapore Global Dialogue, the challenge for our region is ultimately one of whether the globalists or the nationalists will prevail.

The political and economic stakes are very high indeed.

Which brings us back to the future we choose to construct for ourselves here in this our own region.

I have never believed there is anything determinist about the inevitability about the drift towards conflict and war – as some sort of later-day fulfilment of Huntington’s “Clash of Civilisations”.

What does the sentence "Which brings us back to the future we choose to construct for ourselves here in this our own region." mean?

Thanks!

Which brings us back to: This returns us to

the future we choose to construct: our choice about what we will do in future

for ourselves: for ourselves

here in this, our own region: here.
