Ian Carmichael's Blog – January 2009 Archive (1)

Straw men, ad hominems and vitriol

G'day folks,

I was going to blog about 'label and destroy'. There's so much of it about - liberal, fundamentalist, extremist, right-wing, left-wing, fundy, pro-choice, pro-life...
It's such a distasteful, and dishonest way of putting people in a box and making them non-people, or putting ideas in a box labelled 'do not open' (or perhaps "Pandora")

...but it's lunch time, and I couldn't really be bothered. Maybe more later - but there's cricket on, I hope!
