We may not know know everything, but we are deeply challenged when the unexpected happens. This is a good thing , maybe even a God thing ?
Say when Hanson and Trump arrive.
We should know that our brilliant piecing together of cause and effect are as deep as the birdbaths in which we all splash. Yes there are relative certainties and we should chase them, but humility would take us further than most of us think ( You heard it first from EA)
As as scientist, I could scream daily at the unquestioning acceptance of causation crap based on mere correlations that occurs especially on The ABC who falsely believe that some experiment will prove everything and that we can afford to wait for it. Cul de Sacs that , lets be clear cost the community careers and growth.
Is there any hope ? Maybe not for us and our shallowness, but there is for the unltimate triumph of truth in our world and the wonderful , if strange , way it can happen .
For a person of no faith , or who relies on a sense of their own (or ABC reasoning) reasoning this phenomena of the child calling the child out can and should frighten;Very left field .The truth can set us free but we may not like who is telling us .
The world is not just responding to Islam with hate. Its also responding to moderate islam's failure to address, as Hanson says the ideology which drives it .
Waleed Aly and others need to talk to the fear, not dodge it like dumb Dastyari did. Where is this man anyway like the sheepish lot who joined him on QandA
While many who support Hanson are, like her , shallow in seeing realities and maybe even shallower in solutions. they are right to ask questions and put propositions , Hanson is at least talking to the issues ( unlike most of the panel ) For the child to call the child ignorant is to "take one to know one " and not worthy as many noted of the hour wasted on QandA .
Its not often the job of members to solve problems, but to hear what other members of the community are saying . So far Hanson is doing that.
Heads bowed low by the other panel members whose only noise was counter accusation and cringing in the face of the questions.
" How do you stop radicalisation ? was the question . Are any of our Senators apart from Hanson aware of what young people think? What kind of cringe stopped them last night from saying something about the frustrations of ordinary people . QandA audience just a fraction too comfortable?
