A coupe for common sense

Nothing could have prepared Tony Jones and his tight team of religious pedants from the shock of an  unexpected few words from the royal family of Hamlet territory. What do you do when someone says something heretical in church .The court as usual out of touch with the leadership.
Helle Thorning Schmidt believed in CC, so "she must be alright" to provide the perfect balance they seek on Q and A---they thought.
 Helle was apparently  perfect for that perfect balance that they strive for at this worship service on Mondays --or so they thought . Pity about the child who is unaware of the parade -the emperor wearing no clothes .
Nothing could have prepared the control group from her stepping into the crowd and being called called foul over her short statements about the very nature of Democracy ( as she herself rightly put it !!!) .
 "Of course you can insult someone ", she said to the amazement of the PC crowd .The church was rocking with unspoken calls of "heresy" .Court in session.
She must have wondered what has happened to this wonderful place of free spirits,  where they now sit on people who express them .
 For a stunned moment, the penguin in charge found it difficult to move on .His" moving on" move  normally quite effective in keeping his program and sermon series on track .

God bless them;  They took a risk last night in having Pail Kelly and Josh,  but little did they think that this honest visitor from outside would do what visitors do - tell the truth ,
They will have to make sure next time the balance is right - The team do know that they can't have more than one scientist or expert on the panel;( doctrines must be clearly put) to have more than one expert islike weighting the game in a gambling fashion -- does anyone remember how the QandA panel treated Professor Bob Carter?
Clearly the team didn't see that the other panel guests would be so wishy washy over the deep and powerful issue of words and didn't see like those guests  how the tyrannical try to rule with them --it simply didn't occur to them .This is a comfortable place to sit late at night after all .
Helle was not briefed to NOT play the political game of the moment; pretend we believe that Section 18 is OK because it was the rights ( or is it liberal lefts ) decision to try an reform it . The reactionaries will pathetically and predictably say that the word insult and offend  MUST stay.

Helle said the blasphemous words " its OK to insult " . Any reasonable thinking person would recognize that  the evil is often in the ear of the beholder -but not the PC brigade in the pews

The  pew sitters are happy to see someone crucified in court because the assertive rich one ( or anyone ) has the right to take someone to court for what they see as a crime.Crimes of ommission and good intention come to mind .
Pity they haven't read Romans 11 :8 for a while, where the author points out just a few problems with what we see and what we don't see and why .Why we have trial by jury and why we are NOT in the West clones of his old crowd --the pharisees.
Seeing a comment as insulting doesn't make it so, but the ABC and the Senate would make it so . Innocent people will NOW continue to go to court , even in houses, schools  cafes and in the street because the Hollow men in the Senate like Hinch just want to go home : when a clear winning argument is not obvious; when its all too hard and you can't please the people on your side-- or anyone in particular
Never was the left in such a bind, on the right,  than when they can only advocate doing nothing .

Never are the reactionaries ( well dome Malcolm Turnbull for easing them out of the cracks ) so evidently in a state of traumatic inertia and self imposed paralysis than when they realize they have nowhere to go (react to )but to go back and vote with the common sense of reform .

What a bunch of clowns .

The perfect balance doctrine at the ABC -

(In  superficial terms of course
 The high priests strive to get it right "You  got to fact check these things they say " - fact being a very good cover for lack of Quality and a pedant preoccupation with quantity - Hegel and history would be aghast at the teams simple doctrines. THE ABC team are so short of real scientists they miss Hegels Whiteheads and Russell's point about the nature of scientific verification and how to get things CLEAR .

They have been talking moving on for so long they have forgotten that their faith in progress blinds them to not only a lack of momentum but all the going around in circles that is evident to thinking people in the audience.Their fanaticism to prove they never go backwards like conservatives means they overstate their case till we see it stark naked - watch what you wear gentlemen.
