Professor John Passmore, in a series of Boyer lectures in the 1980's pointed out something the dumbing down class at the ABC still don't get . "Politicians don't really know the answers to complex problems but they are afraid to admit it". .
The ABC not only don't know the answers or the reason asking "why"is no guarantee of any decent A's but they don't often even know who to ask . Australian story is an exception . The excellent report on 7:30 re sports and physical science ambitions last night exceptional also .-- outside authors featured.
The Islamic chaplain knew it was complex but no
one else took the brief- answers have to be short and sweet at the ABC . Bandt was at home with that -- "more money from government will fix everything and ......by they way - ban chaplains - they propagate ideas "( not his ideas on what to say to young people -- noticably ABSENT . Mark Scott lets the stupid "moving on" excuse cover for complete incompetence and carelessness year after year .titillation amidst desperation-- that's our ABC.
Weeks after some rare good QandA Tony Jones is back to his very old bad old habit of asking dumb old "How2 " questions of politicians and the politically correct .( es not the only one to play circle games with that lead in ) There isn't a poorer class of "how to do things" in the country, He's wasted years talking to polys about science and practice - no wonder its circle and circus time at the Colosseum after a weekend of real competition on the field
The game is not about problem solving , its about entertainment- poking and prodding with pain as currency.. ABCchurch
The first person in the audience asks a great question about "whether there is anything in the teachings of Islam that justifies violence " . The idea is on every Australians lips, but not on the ABC's - were too nice ere .
Hate to offend anyone -- that would be to sin badly in their church
The question was never answered and noone dared ask it again or challenge the answer given about peace .
Peace and peace loving can be really dangerous - a surface thing. There is no peace in anyone's household unless you all speak the truth . Peace at subservience price is what is offered under ISIS .
Jesus set the scene for the West by saying clearly --"he did not come to bring peace, but a sword" .Truth must triumph in a comfort zone science rules world.
If you are going to let a simple virtue run riot like peace or equality you are going to end up with people rnnning everywhere with swords and everyone else shit scared to say - hang in this is too simple and its not working The unintended consequential activists are using one good intention principle thing as a excuse for great evil .
Peace in our time . Chamberlain, Shaw , ........PM's of many times and places .
