Sarcasm is banned form many Australian campuses because it is form of violence.

I bet it took a real genius to think of this!

Sarcasm can easily create problems, when the receiver of the sarcasm doesnt realize it is sarcasm.
But it is always better to inform people, than to ban something.
Lets ban assholes from the earth and see if that helps anything. I´ll go pack my stuff right away

Wonderful ... I'd be locked into sarcasm jail without even trying.

How are they expecting to be able to prove sarcasm, especially when it is done with a straight face? I can't see it working in England. Must conversations be digitally recorded so that experts can scrutinise them for minute tone modulations? Or will judgement be based on the previous record of the speaker?- "That guy belongs to the wrong group, and he's just agreed with something I said- that has to be sarcasm!"

Yeah, well fair enough.

Truth be told... I never had much chance of getting in anyways.

Proof?

This is a full-on left-wing inquisition.
A "cultural desk" of sorts.

Confess and toe the line. and it might not be so bad.

They have ways to make you talk.

No, not thumb-screws and racks (or send you to the gulag), but they have ways to ruin your entire life.

I believe technically the first word you said was meant sarcastically.

I used to watch some of the Australian news channels. They would have an article about a particular sports person, which would be normal. Then at the end of the clip, one of the newsreaders would say something, "but I bet he couldn't throw a rock into the ocean" - A real snide little take down on someone. They would do it every time.

From my experience, many people don't understand sarcasm or satire. They take it literally. Make a joke that the security warning "if you see something that doesn't look or right or looks out of place, report it. See it. Report it. Sort it" is all about people wearing out of date fashions, and the international students would literally believe you.

Couldn’t they ban those that don’t understand sarcasm instead? After all, these are institutions of higher learning, are they not? Doesn’t that imply attendees should be able to learn?


Much better to let them get through life never learning to understand sarcasm, then resorting to real violence when they encounter it! /s (sarcasm, not violence)

What is Australia in a race to see if they can be the absolute LOWEST country in the world (beat out Antarctica)?

But let's remember, this kind of nonsense is happening on campuses across the world.

It's not just Australia.

Although you want my honest opinion?

You're probably not far off from an "open border" migrant invasion.

You're on the Leftist, globalist to-do list.

Just I imagine, with Australia it won't be a "caravan".

It will be a "migrant fleet".

This is one of the ways in which they control people and control dissent. They criminalize (without saying so) scacasim using violence as an excuse.

People need to able keep their eye on the ball. The ball might get hard to see sometimes because of the football stadiums of people who are experts in manipulating people's views and opinion by use the language.

Remember the saying " if you've done nothing wrong then you've got nothing to hide have you."

We all know this forestalls further discussion on the matter, it leaves us with little option but to agree and it enables them to continue implementing their agenda.


Almost no-one I've spoken to about this carefully crafted phrase has ever seen the deceit in it.

That is a measure of how good these people are. However it does not mean that what they say is correct.
