I dont care how old the story is. I don’t care that Andrew Ryan was a bit of a skate. I don’t care that he stole the book. What I do care about is that both crimes were equally offensive to two different groups of people. Both crimes were designed to incite and offend the other group and the punishments were vastly different. Would you have been any the less enraged at my publishing this if I angled it from the ‘poppy burners’ pov and complained that their punishment was too lenient? There is no winning when the liberal minded get on their high horse.
Like Churchill said “This is not the beginning of the end, it is the end of the beginning.”
