@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat Well of course it does. The thing to be outraged about was just on television. Later, it won’t be.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog And how utterly arrogant for you to imagine that you, separately, know what unscrewed-up priorities are.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog You, too, are part of “the Australian people”. The Australian people is not the other. It is us. All of us.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog And my point is that “the Australian people, in general” is not an actual thing. It’s lazy thinking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog “The public” is just a monolith eh? Who do you think went to those candlelight vigils if not “the public”?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog So overall, I myself would like to know what your actual point is, apart from today’s unfocused frustration.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog And after that, you turned it into an argument about what “the general public” (a monolith?) thinks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog After that, I’ve been trying to deconstruct some of the claims about relative outrage with facts.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog Well I began with a simple response to the false and offensive claim that there was “silence” on the issue.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@BrigadierSlog I don’t think the previous lot cared either. Partisanship clouds perceptions. (As does everything else.)

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat The stuff that works (contacting MPs, offering ways to win etc) is what really needs to happen. (2/2)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat Also agreed. The core of my annoyance is the naivety that unfocussed buzz is all that’s needed. (1/2)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat Agreed, but that’s still confusing buzz with political pressure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@the_cheshirekat @BrigadierSlog “Outcry” isn’t the only variable. Suspending live exports had no electoral risk. Easy to do.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to the_cheshirekat

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat Fair point. The weekend then. Either way, I reckon Kehazaei’s story will have far more coverage by the end.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat In the same way, people forget the huge blip around Kehazaei’s death, and think only that nothing changed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog @the_cheshirekat I understand the point. I reckon the data doesn’t assert the claim. Today’s blip will be forgotten tomorrow.
