Overton Window Fan Club
« on: November 07, 2010, 10:21:16 am »
Asylum Seekers in Australia

    * Unthinkable: Execution on arrival
    * Radical: Immediate return to origin
    * Acceptable: Reduced turnaround for cases.
    * Sensible: Improved conditions and monitoring for mental health.
    * Popular: Off shore processing
    * Policy: Mandatory Detention on arrival.

Am I doing it right?

If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Didn't Little Johnny once get the SAS to put a hole in an asylum seeker's ship?

I don't think execution upon arrival is necessarily that radical at all, considering...

I haven't heard that in particular, no, but there was a ship sinking that led to the 'children overboard issue'.

I saw execution as being impossible for our government to implement so I threw it in unthinkable.

Apparently Glenn Beck is part of your fan club.
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

Implied connection to Glen Beck on internet forum

    * Unthinkable: Have Beck assasinated.
    * Radical: Make scene. Leave forum. Renounce Discordianism forever.
    * Acceptable: Avoid the issue.
    * Sensible: Respond somewhat flippantly
    * Popular: Summarise  issue through amusing jpg
    * Policy: Acknowledge the Beck book, but deny connection.

No, assasinating Glen Beck is quite thinkable, I'd put it at the "radical" stage at the very least, personally I think it would be sensible.
