I'm only asking because I've googled Sustainability Party and the search engine directed me to this message board as its home page/online face.

Also I am genuinely considering becoming a member of the Sustainability Party (SP) and this issue is very impt to me.

Personally I am of the opinion that racism is an abhorrent and vile scourge which undermines and impedes free speech .. and ultimately destroys a society.

I would be very interested to know about the SP's view on Anti Semiticism also.

Many thanks in advance.

How does it 'undermine and impede free speech'?

Amazing. So what are you proposing? That we impede free speech to restrict something that according to you, apparently 'impedes free speech'? Go back to your fruit shop, Con.

I'll give ya a coupleadays.




The real trouble begins, when racism is spread via propaganda from the top down - as we have seen in Oz this past week...

Clearly, the anti-Muslim propaganda that has plagued the globe for the past decade is really starting to take its inevitable toll!

This Western-incited madness must be stopped before humanity reaches the point of no return!

Lamenting the shift in the Australian psyche, away from the egalitarian ideal of the fair-go - and the rise of short-sighted pollies, who worship the 'Growth Fairy' and seek to divide and conquer!

You think so?

Have you considered what may happen when the TOP infiltrates the BOTTOM and works back up to meet the TOP-DOWN team?

Hmmm?

MY 2 bob worth is that racism is a natural and understandable attittude, an evolutionary response to the days when competition for limited resources from 'outsiders' was the difference between life and death.

I think disproportionate attention has been placed on this trait, and it's got to the point where any (negative) observation about the shared characteristics of a race/culture is equated to a desire to rid the world of all but one race.  In the eyes of the PC maniac, there is no grey area, no degrees of racism....but I guarantee, each and every one of us is racist to some extent - the difference is whether we admit it or not.

You no doubt fervently believe that speech and action by Muslims have absolutely no bearing on their reputation.

What you are saying and thinking is that only Westerners are accontable for what they say or do and all other peoples are manipulated by said Westerners and cannot be held to account. They are total morons (in the clinical sense) and all responsibility for their conduct rests with their evil guardians, the Westerners and the puppets they impose on these morons, er, blameless, peace-loving non-Western .....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Thank you Wesley for your honest reply.

It's great to have this opportunity to voice our personal opinions/perspectives regarding racism vs free speech (while we're waiting for FD to inform us of where he and the SP stands on all this).


Regards

Lisa
