Rights deprivation syndrome (letter)


by Roger Kelly

News Weekly, September 10, 2005
Sir,

Thank you, Bill Muehlenberg, for so clearly and succinctly articulating the case against Australia introducing a Bill of Rights (News Weekly, August 13, 2005).

Like millions of Australians, I don't feel any "rights deprivation syndrome" invading my personal territory. I don't wander through my day feeling desolated by the loss of any fundamental right at all.

It leads one to wonder what it is that motivates governments - principally those of a socialist persuasion - to introduce them.

For every right defined, another must as a consequence be removed.

There is little doubt that a change of government in Australia, at some time in the future, would see the push come back to centre stage - the Left would see to that!

Until then, I'll keep Bill's article on my desk to remind me of why I live in the best country in the world.

Roger Kelly,
Mount Pleasant, Qld.
