If grammar in many high schools is not taught so that the students are proficient, what else can we expect in popular culture? The ability to read and write is so taken for granted. My high school education in English largely consisted of topical essays, no grammar, no logic, only personal perspective.

I understand. Us New Zealanders had a better education. For example we were taught to say Fish and Chips, not Fesh and Cheps :rofl::rofl:

Yes but we dont have prime minister acting out her paternal motherly instincts upon the nation; more government, more welfare!

Bogans are an unfortunate sub group of Australians with their own unique vernacular and values, no doubt descendants of the anti authority prisoners that came to Australia 200 years ago. Every Australian has some bogan in him.

Fully agree. Many Australians adore our Prime Minister but I am pleased you have seen through her Marxist ideology. She trained as a Marxist sadly.

Folks on channel 10, the project, literally supported abandoning the police (in America, probably in Australia too). I could not believe my eyes or my ears. What do they think will happen? That all the injustices of the world will simply reverse themselves, and all people with racist attitudes will repent? The key fallacy of leftist thinking is this; they believe that mans nature is fundamentally good, clearly contradicts biblical doctrine. If you start with the goodness of men, then by definition people only do evil because of outside forces acting upon them, namely institutions, hence if we get rid of the institutions man will once again flourish as angel. What lies! What falsehood! What perversity. Traditional conservatives rightly recognize that man is evil and that institutions and hierarchy of authority and power exist to restrain the wickedness of mankind. We will need physical protection if such ideology keeps sweeping the west. Maybe it is the devils method of ultimately killing the elect.

Again, many consumers do not buy a Bible by asking themselves what is the best translation but rather by asking what's familiar, what's traditional, what's a comforting memory from childhood, what once spoke to them in youth group, etc.

Yes, people will buy a particular Bible translation for sentimental or emotional reasons, as you say. I suspect that that's a large part of what keeps the KJV afloat.

With all the destruction of history going on today (monuments, revisionist history, etc.), my Scottish contrarianism rears its head: I just switched my devotional reading translation to the KJV, in order to preserve its amazing heritage in my own mind. That isn't the only thing I intend to do (I have started serious study of history in focused books on particular events), but it is one thing that we can do to preserve our heritage.
