    Whats About

    Join the L&H for this week's house debate "This House Believes That Discourse is Dead," at 6.30pm in the Fitzgerald Chamber. As always free pizza after. Many factors such as social media, cancel-culture and increasingly polarised politics raises questions over the modern nature of freedom of speech and public discord as a whole. There are differing views on how public debate should be moderated, especially in the realms of social media where speed and scale creates challenges for attempted moderation. In addition, some feel that certain issues are beyond debate due to the morality of the topic or that certain figures, groups or ideologies should not be engaged with due to their views.
