having opened the batting on the conversation he’s dog whistling the indigenous activists to carry the debate further whilst he remains above the fray. Now watch for it to be taken up on The Drum and other ABC and academic fora.

PC police are rewriting the world’s history — Brendan O’Neill

Just like China in 1966, the West seems to be being sucked inexorably into its own socio-political, Cultural Revolution “..Everyone’s smashing statues. From Islamic State hotheads sledgehammering ancient artefacts in old Mesopotamian cities to plummy students at Oxford demanding the removal of busts of old colonialists, waging war on the past is all the rage. A Year Zero mentality is on the march. People seem hell-bent on wiping out history, making it invisible, and starting society all over again, cleansed of the likenesses of dead people of whom they disapprove..”

George Brandis and the Quivering Lip — Quadrant

He vehemently condemned Hanson for the gross disrespect she has shown to “a great religion” by flippantly mocking one of its most recognisable symbols. Did he ever make a similarly impassioned speech in the Senate (or anywhere else) castigating Islamists terrorists who refuse to stand in court as required?

Cowardly Charity’s Culpable Cruelty — Quadrant

So where did an impoverished and often starving nation get the technologies and the resources to develop its missiles? Where did the navigation guidance, computerisation and rocket fuel technologies come from? And what of the fissile engineering, nuclear physics, satellite expertise and all the other arcane knowledge needed to build a bomb and, according to intelligence estimates, be poised to miniaturise it? Where did all that knowledge come from? It would be naïve to think North Korea had such home-grown expertise.

How Elites Destroy Themselves — American Thinker

What’s particularly frightening about today’s virtuous Western elites is how inherently destructive to society their virtues are. Indeed, pursuing elite virtue today essentially means doing things which objectively damage society, whether it is cutting off valuable energy sources, weakening conceptions of excellence and hard work, increasing public debt to perilous levels or a half-dozen other hair-brained ideas.
