Holy fuck what an embarrassment Australia is such a backwater it's unreal.
>The leader of an Australian state has apologized to a British man whose same-sex marriage was not recognized when his husband died suddenly on honeymoon in Adelaide last week, Australian media report.
>David Bulmer-Rizzi, 32, died in a fall Saturday while on vacation with husband Marco Bulmer-Rizzi, 38.
>Because South Australia, the state where he died, does not recognize same-sex marriages from overseas, Marco Bulmer-Rizzi was told by state authorities the marriage would not be listed on the man's death certificate, and he would not be recognized as his husband's next of kin.
>"It was a personal attack on David, on our memories. It was the most humiliating moment of my life," Marco told Australian public broadcaster ABC.
Australian marriage laws are an absolute farce desu. I hope the outrage from this event can put more pressure on our dinosaur legislators.
>It's not real marriage because it hurts my feelings!
You do realize that marriage is a government thing and not a religious thing, right?
Marriage is for procreation and raising of children. If it does not involve this then it is not a real marriage, it is just two people fucking.
A bunch of liberal faggots trying to undermine the bedrock of a society.
>marriage is for procreation and raising of children
Procreation and raising of children does not necessitate marriage.
It would be ideal, but still that's a pretty weak argument man.
>This hasn't been the case for a while
It is always the case,a ll that changed is that less people are having real marriages. A society cannot survive without real marriage.
The liberals are destroying us is why the west is dying.
>Procreation and raising of children does not necessitate marriage.
Of course not, but marriage is the best place for this.
Birth rates are not economically sustainable. You just want social liberalism without having to deal with the reality of what it means to have a dwindling population. So you deny this truth in order to avoid the realisation that you yourself are part of the problem.
A large part of modern industry is rapidly moving towards automation in the coming decades. It's not sustainable to keep piling on more and more worthless excess population to compete with fewer and fewer jobs.
Yes it is. The point is that it is one of those predictions that is not backed by evidence and has been made for hundreds of years.
Other notable examples being apocalyptic predictions and the socialist revolution predictions.
In the context of this specific argument, what I said is true. The exponential technological progress and the implications of that are something no one can answer but modern people. I'm sorry you don't have an answer and refuse to look at what is in front of you, but humanity has not had an equivalent to what we are experiencing now.
Automation is currently occurring, and has occurred in parts of many industries already. A completely automated workforce does not need to appear for automation to have a tremendous impact on the workforce.
