Thought for the Day: Reasoned Debate in 21st Century Australia


Tomorrow we expect an announcement that the vote on same-sex marriage was a complete waste of time. XYZ insiders believe that lawyers are allied with gender fluidity zealots to “further their agenda without democratic intervention”.

Leading progressive ideologues are expected to impose restrictions on our liberties to protect supposed victims of homophobia and bigotry, who they will claim have endured months of anticipatory pain and suffering.

What they mean is that reasoned debate simply has no place in Australia in the 21st century – and they will use this cause to stop it in the name of progress.

    Reasoned debate will be shut down.
    Dissenting voices and views will be shut down.
    Everything will be shut down that is not a jigsaw piece of the Marxists.

    Society is more focused now on feelings and emotions rather than facts and reality. A reasoned debate requires facts and logic, not emotion and feelings. As a result, you will not find a reasoned debate occur in our society for the foreseeable future.

    Examples are climate change (end of the world, dude!), SSM (love is love, yo!), open borders (everyone is oppressed, man!), and so on. No reasoned debate going on for any of those!!
