Words *ARE* powerful – Censorship fails on many levels

A great piece about an ignorant affront to honesty and learning. This tale is yet another example of how “education” in our society is actually a misnomer – a euphemism for “schooling”, ie. transmission of our cultural mores and traits, rather than true exploration and discovery – and yet we wonder why we are plagued with xenophobia, racism, bullying and the rest. A lesson in the power of words (and…

Not a birther

Despite Tony Abbott’s abominable performance & ideological fanaticism it may well be that he did renounce his British nationality as required for membership of the Parliament, by the Constitution.

No, it’s not a mad conspiracy theory that I have – I have experienced abuse…

Festival of dangerous marketing tactics – The Drum (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

The pulling of this talk was pure CENSORSHIP. As usual, one of the features that goes to prove the point is that almost no-one who called for it to be banned had actually heard the content – this is generally the way with the most vocal censors. Dee may be right about the title being sensationalist, as were many others that were not pulled, but I don’t think that is…
