No 11: Marginalising dissenters causes backlash.

An intolerant state

Without going into the Folau case, to me it is symptomatic of the intolerance that goes along with the metanarrative.

When certain opinions are so scrutinised in this manner, it is reverse intolerance as I previously pointed out.

If the same restrictions that some want to impose on dissenters were turned around, that would never be tolerated. And neither should it.

So why has it become a one-way street?

Because one side wants to dominate the other.

That will never work.

I suggest some voters felt that way when they rejected the ALP. They feared their views would be further suppressed if they gave power to a party they don’t trust.

But that’s just an opinion; even though it doesn’t fit the metanarrative.

It’s OK to have an opinion. It’s not going to hurt anyone.

Unless you let it.
