Danger in toxic discourse

Q: DO we take our democracy for granted? TWO weeks ago I noticed a billboard advertisement not far from where I live.It resembled a public notice and ostensibly was issued under the auspices of the “Australian Interior Authority” and the “2021 Stronger Australia Act”. In big, emboldened black the billboard contained the message: “Holders of expired ID cards will be prosecuted.” Under the headline, there was a more sinister sentence: “Report all suspicious citizens. It’s the law.” by Tim Soutphommasane in The Australian August 06, 2011
