RACE RELATIONS LAW, SECTION 18C: striking the right balance….

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Multiculturalism, Persecution, Politics

In Australia it’s illegal to say, write or draw anything that offends anybody regarding their background.
We have bureaucrats paid to decide whether the offended-ness is justified — or if the expression of opinion was legitimate.
The bureaucratic decisions seem usually biased (towards the complainers).
Instead should we have panels of reasonable, typical, un-biased citizens — not bureaucrats — to decide?
Bondi tram passengers? Pub patrons?
But are not many pub-dwellers regular alcohol-drinkers? A possible worry, brain function-wise?
Tram-travellers could be a more reasonable cross-section.
Am I allowed to mention that people younger than 30 shouldn’t be eligible?
It’s well known that brain development is incomplete until at least one’s late twenties.
We could argue all day.
But it’s really not so complicated.
Best simply scrap Section 18C and deal with intimidation etc. under other already-existing legislation.

LEFT WING “PROGRESSIVE” POLITICS: progressing towards what?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, Common Sense, Education, Faith, Family, Lifestyle, Media, Women

1. Australia’s “progressive” media are making a celebrity of a woman who calls Islam a “feminist” religion.
Don’t they know that in the countries where Islam is practiced most, women are stoned for alleged infidelity?
Didn’t an official Islamic spokesperson recently tell Australia’s Sky News that sometimes it’s OK to beat one’s wife?
Islam needs to “progressively” convert its own traditionalist adherents away from violence-prone fundamentalism.
2. Some Australians consider themselves “progressive” when Sydney streets are filled with persons promoting anal sex as normal.
Many Australians let their youngsters go to “progressive” schools which groom them to condone (if not to practise) that kind of thing, and to vilify anybody discouraging it?
Perhaps Australia needs to “progressively” eradicate those ideas.
Perhaps the Australians loudest in their claims to be progressive are progressing down the wrong track.

RIGHT WING POLITICS: here to stay or flash in the pan?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Family, God, Justice, Politics

Will the worldwide increase of support for right-wing politics continue?
Election results from Western Australia and the Netherlands should help work that out.
Many are sick of communism-like dictatorship-minorities imposing ideologies on families and their children.
Are we automatons/robots programmed and re-programmable by secular dogma?
Or is there a human free will – by means of which we make real decisions for which we can be held responsible?
It’s to the Judaeo-Christian God of the Bible that we must turn to find the loving father whose presence makes sense of the world — who seeks to redeem us, befriend us, adopt us and fulfil us as his children.
The homosexuality-promoting lobbyists are very counter-productive.
Their intolerance of objective comments about their lifestyle in the context of natural law gives them away.
