You know you're in the most reasonable place politically when the people to the left of you are calling you a right wing nut and the people the right of you are calling you a bleeding heart lefty, I've been in that position for quite a while now. Never said that 18c or anti-discrimination laws had anything to do with Marxism, they do have something to do with authoritarianism though. Again I never said that, all I said about this subject was basically that people should be able to say whatever they want, except direct incitement to violence and direct threats, without having to deal with the law or having to worry about being publicly crusified. If you don't have that you don't have free speech, Australia doesn't have that. That's a new one, I've never been called culture warrior before, might look it up and see if it's a good thing sometime. This coming from what I suppose is a communist, the irony!
