Conservatism Half Hour (in less time): Episode Two – Indigenous Recognition

This one was difficult to record because the subject matter is so sensitive.  I am really worried that we conservatives aren’t in a healthy enough state to contribute meaningfully, constructively, and sensibly to the Indigenous Recognition Referendum.  As I argue in this podcast, I think that makes it more difficult to hold a great referendum.

The argument — which is a little bit hard to follow — is that a good no campaign would reassure people who vote yes that they’re doing so in full possession of the best possible arguments not to vote yes.  It’s only if the no campaign is rigorous can we be confident that people voted in a way which actually expresses their will for a change to the referendum.

Anyway, enjoy!
