The Conservative Party's New South Wales Senate candidate, Sophie York, recently gave a talk to the Australian Chesterton Society at Sydney's Campion College.
The Chesterton society commemorates the life and works of G K Chesterton, a source of a great many eminent quotes including these pertinent to the modern political correctness movement:
(Writing on 14 August, 1926 On Modern Controversy) "We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which furious party cries will be raised against anybody who says that cows have horns, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green."
"A great deal of the current cult of pleasure, of luxury, of liberty in love, and all the rest of it, appears to me to be perfectly childish; and childish in the literal sense that it is greedy and without grasp of consequences."
Sophie talked about the most valuable things in life which are now under serious threat in Australian society.
