Enshrine racism in the Constitution

Karl Popper defended equalitarian justice by which he meant equality before non-discriminatory laws and an equal distribution of the limitations on freedom that are required for a functional society.

Traditional or individualistic justice, as described by Popper in his critique of Plato, “calls for equal treatment of the citizens before the law, provided, of course, that the laws show neither favour nor disfavour towards individual citizens or groups or classes.”

There are three main demands or proposals to promote equality and freedom, namely (a) the proposal to eliminate ‘natural privileges’  (no special classes), (b) justice applies to individuals rather than groups and (c) a major function of the state is to protect the freedom of the citizens.

Listen to it. An audible summary of Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies.

Or read all about it on kindle.

Or read on paper in The Popper Guides.

    That is what will be the end result if the idiots in the population outnumber those with half a brain cell.
    Looking at the country today makes me wonder though. Are there that many idiots out there? Probably.

    The United States has spent years attempting (mostly unsuccessfully) to eradicate racism and bigotry from its society. So now, Australian politicians, ever anxious for approval on he world stage, want to follow in its footsteps. Is it cynical to believe that they will be no more successful?

    Soros is a devotee of Popper.

    Soros has pumped billions into this open society shtick. He has merged it with his anti-capitalist drivel and it has been taken up by WEF as a globalist meld of social justice, chrony capitalism and open society globalism. The guy is a megalomaniac and the sooner he shuffles off this mortal coil the better.

    Enshrining racism in the Constitution: the bombardment from SBS and the ABC has begun – what the country supposedly owes to the culture of the Aboriginal ‘nations’.

    Its a pity that Soros claimed that he was influenced by Popper because i have read some of his books and found no sign of Popper’s influence apart from his use of the term ‘open society’ that is meaningless until you explain what it means.
    The Open Society and Its Enemies is Popper’s critique of aspects of Plato that poisoned the wells of western thought. Plato has been revered as the Divine Philosopher and western philosophy has been described as footnotes to Plato. So check out this piece which shows how aspects of Plato’s ideas play out in the Black Lives Matter movement.

    My local federal MP (Silly Satou, Labor) is one of those who proudly wears a #racismnotwelcome Tshirt in her photo ops
    Yet is simultaneously a loud advocate for “the Voice”
    Radio silence when one attempts to engage her on the matter to point out the inherent doublethink
    Also a big advocate of “diversity” yet after only 6 months in the role, chooses to smear those who hold different views (e.g. on da climate)
    Appears to have set up her gender and ethnicity as body armour
    Conclusion: a nice enough person but just another Labor drone who parrots da pardy lines, no private enterprise experience, just university and advisor roles.

    the young people who vote for this are used to being brainwashed, it starts in the schools

    they will have to deal with it, such is life

    have you seen what’s going on in New Zealand?

    Perhaps the activists would care to identify those aspects of Australian life to which aboriginal culture has made a major contribution. I can’t think of any.

    What’s the staffing for The Voice Steering Committee look like?
    Anything like the one that pushed Divorce Law Reform through?
    If there are any Abos allowed in there at all, they’ll be mopping the place out after work.

    Probably something like this, which they now want to put into the Constitution.

    There is a reason that this turnout failed at every given turn, putting it into the Constitution won’t change this failure. Unreconcilable people of trust is a derivative of boundless self-interest regardless of heritage.
