Letter to the Editor

Sarah Gill claims that 'the hard right doesn't get equality' ('It's all about their rights', 6/9), but we conservatives in the tradition of T. S. Eliot and Russell Kirk distrust the concept of equality as a tool to achieve a fruitful, secure and peaceful political order. We prefer equity. Nor is it 'the reapportioning of rights' that we fear, but the destabilisation of Australian society by hare-brained schemes whose fanatical advocates appear unaware of the potential damage they threaten. We need free speech to expose their errors; we wish traditional marriage to be honoured for family welfare; and we want the constitution to favour no particular ethnic group over others.
