Mere words man
Its just not fair ! The girls were miffed that the mouths of the men kept moving without a break ; the wise women were not being heard , in the end , on The Q&A panel on Monday night. Maybe they had enough sense to stay out of the game going on at that point .
I wouldn't be too worried . So few know where equality begins and ends and where quality and diversity and unity start . Pedantry abounds and mere words and mere time given to them are a shallow preoccupation, if you want to get to the big picture.
Because when they spoke, the women made sense - we remember not how much time you had, but how well you spoke .Wonderful, light and clear.
I don't believe in progress as a religion because until our parliamentary put a qualitative filter on the conversation, men will continue to be think themselves wise for all their words; and be seen as fools for removing all doubt by using too many .( Kevin Rudd clearly took the cake on the night)
Kiss is the principle and Concatenation the guide: Proverbs 11 provides the ground floor of Parliament just as 1 Corinthians and Matthew 11: 25 should echo politely and succinctly around its walls.
Don't be too greek - its likely to set us ALL back a few thousand years.
