Politics and the price of pillory

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT

The price we sometimes pay for freedom of expression is that people can use language to strip people of their dignity and self-respect and reduce them to lesser mortals.

Ticketek “Print At Home” cost

2 weeks agoAustralia / Canberra : RiotACT
