Thoughts about the Izzy situation:

Imagine being offended at someone and demanding they lose their job for claiming a God you don't believe in, said in a Book you've never read, that unless you repent for something you don't believe is a sin, you will go to a place after you die that you don't believe exists.

This is Australia in 2019.

Some interesting facts about Rugby Union:

There are four football codes played in Australia: Aussie Rules, Rugby League, Soccer and Rugby Union. (Somewhere in Australia there are a few handfuls of people playing Gaelic football or gridiron, but too few to measure.) Of the four, Rugby Union comes in 4th in: Crowd attendance, TV ratings, participation, sponsorship and media coverage. Not just 4th, but a very distant 4th.

The 'Izzy vs Rugby Australia' serial provides some vague interest in Rugby for people who have no real interest. People like us.

Yep. Seriously, why would anyone give a rat's arse what he says? He's a football player FFS!

And yes, in Australia in 2019 what you say is taken far more seriously than what you do. Offend someone verbally and you cop all kinds of ****. Physically assault someone and you're a hero. Weird.

Has anyone ever been jailed for talking about killing a dog?

Someone was jailed for talking about a rape trial. Arrested, tried, convicted and jailed for 13 months, all within 5 hours.

So killing a dog got 7 months, talking got 13.

Not sure if everything in this article is factual. It possibly is but not all able to be proved.
Some points are very familiar though.

I do agree that the social media companies monitor what we read then keep us using their services by directing more of the same type of material to us. That's proven by what turns up in my Google news feed. From the article:
“What keeps people glued to YouTube?” she asked. “Its algorithm seems to have concluded that people are drawn to content that is more extreme than what they started with – or to incendiary content in general.” And this didn’t just go for Trump supporters. Tufekci cited an investigation by the Wall Street Journal, which found that even users who watched mainstream news on YouTube were “fed far-right or far-left videos”.

I suppose this is one way to achieve the "consensus" we keep hearing about.

Any chance you could post a link so context can he understood? Comparing a crime against a dog and a human (presumably) is difficult with the scant information you provided.
