Most of us tend to surround ourselves with people that are similar to us in certain ways. We drift towards people with similar morals and personal ethics. When we discuss things like politics or current events, we are often discussing them with people who feel similarly to us.
So when things happen that going against what we believe, it comes as a bit of a shock to the system to know that many people feel the opposite. I know a fair few Queenslanders would have felt this way seeing Pauline Hanson winning seats in the senate. Did people actually vote for the woman who makes no secret of her intolerance for Muslims, who is pandering to so-called men’s rights groups and who is publicly stating that vaccines are linked to autism, a claim that has been disproved hundreds of times? They sure did.
