    What hendrix said, plus even in a world close to your ideal, companies will have government as a customer and an employee of that company should be able to protest against government policy as a citizen, wouldn't you agree?

    I'm no more claiming you're defending Damores firing than I am defending the CA employees. I think I've said I don't like this situation 3 different ways now. I just think it's interesting how "right" and "wrong" political opinions seem to get treated in these kinds of situations and most people only seem to care about it when it's a "wrong" opinion.

    Yeah I guess. I just think expecting it to be any different is fantasy. People use influence where they can, be that a blue haired feminist or a health minister copping heat on twitter.

    There has been a lot of progress wrt curbing this though, so fantasy is not the best way to think about it imo.

    Yeah just because things aren't perfect doesn't mean we shouldn't value how (relatively) accountable we hold the Government in countries like Australia.

    Could be a lot, lot worse.

    Fantasies are powerful motivators even if they're impossible.

    EDIT: interpret this how you will
    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    we couldn't get higher
    we didn't know that we had it all

    Brisbane Times says Greg Hunt is redrafting legislation for "My Health Record" to prevent information being accessed by the state without a court order.
