I strongly support maintaining the existing state of affairs. I cannot understand why anyone is mooting the introduction of more stringent rules enforcement.
Now I want to waffle. No offence is intended.
My wife is French [born]. Here in Adelaide, South Australia, there is a small French community. Sometimes I am exposed to it by invitation from my mother-in-law who is an active participant in French community activities.
But, these French are always fighting among themselves. So dysfunctional are they that three main factions have formed over the years, each announcing whenever the opportunity arises, that they represent the overall French community in Adelaide.
I'm often left wondering are these people French or are they Australian.
I'm not entirely sure of the cause for all the acrimony within the Adelaide French community because I don't fully understand the mangled English spoken to me and my French is second-rate schoolboy standard.
However, I do know one subject of heated debate centres on what happened in France during the last World War. France too at this time had many of its citizens who respectively were anti-Jew and who sympathised with communism, church, fascism, and a love for Hitler. France was subjected to the gross inhumanity of war as was...Poland.
I've been present at one or two French community functions where verbal battles occurred over war-related issues. Once men came to blows.
Debate often injures one's values and standards if the argument impugns these values and standards. On the other hand debate is a forum which reveals facts as perceived and interpreted by individuals.
Do not change the rules of expression for K-S members.
