I watched this last night. I really want to watch this again. Maybe when I have watched it again, I’ll want to comment on it. For instance what Cornel West had to say about USA would be something to think about. One theme was ‘Money is the root of all evil’. It seems to me ‘capitalism’ works like the game of ‘monopoly’. Too many people are getting desperate.

Panellists: Dr Cornel West, Scholar and Poet; Eric Abetz, Tasmanian Liberal Senator; Anne Aly, Labor Member for Cowan; Lindsay Shepherd, Free Speech Advocate; and Jeremy Bell, People’s Panellist.
Dr West argued people had to learn how to disagree well.
“On the one hand we defend yourselves and others who are concerned about the dialogue, the dignity of each voice,” he said.
“We must learn how to disagree and disagree in such a way that we can still have our humanity.
“Friendships are deeper than politics, love is always deeper than politics.
“If you haven’t discovered that, you don’t know what love is, but that’s another show.”
The ABC asks:
‘Do you believe that bigots should have the right to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” others?’
