I am always amazed by how readily Fairfax's journalists think they can press our buttons. Fairfax are deniers of the "science" of Anthropogenic Global Warming. It's not so much that they're rude, lowbrow or just plain wrong, although these, too, are often the case. The most destructive effect of the journalariat is the poisoning of the logic-well itself; followed by the incremental death of the argument tree that is root and branch of intelligent civilisation.
Take Alan Jones. Though it pains me to say it, he is forcing me to change my mind. Not on climate change, or cycling, or the right to public protest, all of which he opposes, but on censorship.Do you know Alan Jones' position on climate change, or cycling, or the right to public protest, Elizabeth?
I can't speak for Alan but having listened to him,
- on climate change he would say that climate has always changed. I think that you are a little confused as Alan is against the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) Hoax;
- on cycling, he is not against cyclists but against the stupidity of tearing up streets for cycle lanes that are rarely used by cyclists;
- on the right to public protests, Alan has supported the NO CARBON (Dioxide) TAX rallies.
Have you listened, Elizabeth?
Foucault argued that unreason died with the enlightenment. But the shock-jock phenomenon proves repeatedly that if you make an argument sufficiently idiotic, the sheer scale of stupidity makes it hard to defeat.
