Q&A: gen-Y edition

TBH, it was one of the better Q&A episodes. On the “right” we had Ruslan Kogan and James Paterson, a millionaire internet entrepreneur and a member of a think tank respectively. On the “left” we had an activist, a comedian, and a music journo.*


You know, sometimes this not-so-humble blogger gets a bit despondent. As an “old” gen-Yer in the international ESL teaching field who wishes he had the talent to write for The Hate Media™, one comes across a great deal of far-leftists. It’s a big reason why I vent my spleen on a blog platform (apart from wanting Andrew Bolt’s net income) so that when Saturday night comes around, I can just enjoy my drink, the people I meet, and not rabbit on about AGW etc. so much. (Hint: It goes down like a dead chunk of week-old whale meat lobbed from the Burj Khalifa unless I’m around trusted friends.)

Thus it was so refreshing to see that one isn’t as alone as one sometimes feels with regard to one’s general political stance (enough 1s?).

There were, naturally, the typical “not-thought-through” positions taken by young leftists, but it was bloody great to see some young rightists out there putting across some good sense that overall, actually went down reasonably well with an audience that was 50% gen-Y.

There’s hope yet my dear OLD readers! 😉

The episode.

Ps If only Tony Jones would quit running interference so often…


*To be fair, they didn’t make my ears grate as much as expected.
