A healthy loyalty is active and critical, not passive and complacent - Harold Laski

Harold Laski was one of the early members of the Fabian society along with Sidney and Beatrice Webb, GBS, RH Tawney, Bertrand Russell and many more formidable intellectuals. However, the Fabian society has a few skeletons in its closet, which includes the spectre of eugenics.

Several notable Australian Fabian's include Gough Whitlam, Julia Gillard, Tanya Plibersek, John Faulkner.

Welcome aboard this commentary commute train Vincent.

As you and all readers can see, it is expressly not a cannonball vehicle. Your comment can be accommodated along with others, even if some think a comment is not on the track they want to head toward.

Key to the vehicle is inclusion, and keyboarding is an advantage.

If readers can agree on one idea, it might be that your thought is expressed vigorously, for that is my take of your use of the word warrior. Yet a word, a short saying, a twig of a branch, might point a train of thought to a sideline track.

A couple of generations of engine drivers as my forebears, urges me to suggest the way forward is in safety. My guess is that Keith would agree, with his accommodating grin. So, welcome aboard.

And we all thought they were doing the right thing Vincent.

Perhaps you should explain your claim about supremacists.

I am anti-government but I detest the attitude of Australian supremacists such as Paul Flanagan and Keith Jackson. I am a true keyboard warrior of Papua New Guinea.

The PNC Party is undermining the fabric of the nation, deceiving people to believe their fatty lies. However, as I see it, most of the people are anti O'Neill and PNC.

I have the strongest conviction that they will lose this year's electoral trial of the prime minister.

I will not vote PNC.They don't know the people except themselves.

Is this the same Ronald Reagan of trickle down economics ideology?

Paul, the real question is: Are the majority of PNG people in touch with reality or are they still subject to misinformation, false promises and fake news?

Democracy is under threat throughout the world. Primarily this is due to a lack belief in the system by the 'me' generation who are too busy treating themselves rather than working hard for a better life for everyone.

‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like …………..’

Ronald Reagan, 40th president of US (1911 - 2004)
