Blog comments Your Say

  • Ken: â??I donâ??t know of a more tolerant and open sotiecy than Australiaâ??s anywhere else. Do you?â?? Philippines. Funny, I was just thinking the very same when i heard some Phillipino villages interviewed after john Saffron's little self-harming-emo stunt last week. After being told who he was the general tone seemed to be disappointment that he had duped them in his intent. Imagine if he did something similar in, say, an Islamic festival?As for racist countries, well i think we are a pretty racist species in general, and its something we all have to personally and collectively actively fight against.Rudd's tirade at people smugglers, while on one level justified, did strike me as simplistic scapegoating and a convenient political diversion. I mean couldn't it be argued that these people trafficking scum are actually some of the greatest heroes of the world in the footsteps of Oskar Shindler making fortunes from the misery of others, but in the process allowing some people an escape from a likely death?Just throwing that out there.
