Many IPA members would have received a very important package from the IPA. It contains a series of documents highlighting the fight against Roxon’s obnoxious anti-free speech legislation. It starts with a letter from John Roskam. To my mind the best part of the whole letter was this gem:
My two grandfathers didn’t fight on the Western Front in the First World War; my father didn’t fight in Burma in the Second World War; and my mother wasn’t a fire lookout in South London during the War so that my children in Australia in 2012 would suffer under a law that makes it against the law to express a political opinion if you offend someone.
Exactly my views – as I told wmmb a few weeks ago:
wmmb – my ancestors fought in ditches so I can be free. Some of my relatives died in those ditches. I will not besmirch their memory or sacrifice to appease the sensitivities of useful idiots or wannabe mass murderers.
Same sentiment from a different perspective.
I am not going to be murdered by the state or its apologists. None of my relatives or friends are going to be murdered by the state or its apologists either.
