Everyone of you here knows my feelings exactly regarding alcohol and our drinking Aussie culture. So what I'm about to share with you might come as bit of a shock.
1. Having a party in Australia is not against the law.
2. Drinking and getting drunk whilst in that party is not against the law.
3. Acting a bit silly and saying the wrong thing whilst being drunk is not against the law.
3. Not hurting anyone is most certainly not against the law.
4. Complying when asked to leave by the host when drunk is a bit surprising and should be applauded instead.
5. At what point do we lose our privacy and the freedom to do as we please behind closed doors (as long as no one is being hurt)?
6. With friends who can't wait to expose your behaviour when you're drunk (and not in public), who needs an enemy?!
7. So had it not been for mobile phone technology and the ease of which we can capture and expose, none of us would have heard of this, correct?
8. Is that what a capital society is all about, making money out of someone's misfortune?
9. Why do we expect perfect or normal behaviour from an intoxicated person as if he was fully sober and in control of all his human faculties?
10. Am I now suddenly defending the drinking of alcohol and its resulting consequences? No I'm not, however until someone can honestly convince me of the crimes this young (famous) man has committed, I say we're as a society of drinkers are no better or worse than he was on that occasion.
I welcome your views.
