When I read the following quote from the Economist's obituary of Stern, I saw parallels with today.
"Hitler's rise, he (Stern) argued, owed less to the Austrian corporal's personality, his thuggish supporters and brutish ideas, than to his opponents' cowardice and the weakness of Germany's "gatekeepers" - the guardians of its cultural and moral standards."
...the issues Australia faces are bigger than the rainbow political agenda.
...That Labor leader Bill Shorten can promise during an election to fund the so-called "Safe Schools" program which teaches children as young as four that "only you can know if you are a boy or a girl - no one can tell you" and there be so little push back is a failure of those of us who know better.
Changing the definition of marriage to entrench motherless and fatherlessness in public policy and teaching our kids their gender is fluid should be opposed.
The cowardice and weakness of Australia's "gatekeepers" is causing unthinkable things to happen, just as unthinkable things happened in Germany in the 1930s.
Perhaps we have moved beyond cowardice to complicity."
