    Aussie culture being ‘destroyed by the radical left’: Liz Storer
    If Bob Hawke was an early career politician today, the plain-talking larrikin would’ve inevitably offended a certain cohort on Twitter and become a victim of “cancel culture”.


    Political correctness has always been with us, this article is crap.

    There have always been things you couldn't get away with saying in the wrong company. Or publicly.

    Freedom is not under threat. Respect for minorities is not a threat to civilization.

    It's all fucking bullshit. You couldn't speak ill of the Queen 100 years ago, you couldn't speak ill of the church. Blasphemy was illegal ffs. You could hit children, humane treatment of animals was a meaningless phrase and people with black skin were classified as fauna. Social norms change along with the Overton window.

    There's a reason why they are called conservative.
