I have to say the discourse on refugees has really shook me up lately. I’ve felt like Gary Linker for some time on the rhetoric that’s being used. As a mental patient and once homeless I have experienced the harsh attitudes of being treated like vermin. It was validation to me.
If the formal human rights of refugees were torn up who would be next? I expect it would be prisoners, the mentally ill and disabled. Though it’s largely already been happening by underfunding services and applying inappropriate rules in public services.Not much legal aid either.
