Absolutely. The entire idea behind FODI is that everyone has the chance to throw their ideas out there. They only way a person like Bolt can make a difference is if there are alot of leaders who believe what he is saying. That should not happen he can say his argument but I think the leaders around the world will shut him down rather quickly.

Everyone’s favourite right-wing columnist Andrew Bolt has written a book called “Worth Fighting For” which is, according to the author, a collection of “my best columns… but also diaries I wrote for Spectator Australia, blog items and reflections written just for this edition”.

The book was published in June and since then has gone on to sell less than a thousand copies.

I think the fact that virtually no one purchased his book means not too many people want to hear what he has to say. Let him show up it will not be pleasant for him it seems.

Lol. Yeah no one really cares what this guy has to say. I will say this though he is highly intelligent and he will make you think about some interesting issues. He has to be there because his presence and perspective needs to be represented.

The entire idea is to put everything on the table and I am sure he will lay his thoughts out to everyone. The world is so diverse and we cannot be so quick to dismiss views that may seem over the top to us. Most ideas have been considered crazy and radical once in time.

As long as it can be done in a way where we are bettering ourselves. If this is going to turn into some bigot calling for way or something stupid he should be left off the list. I have read some bad things about this guy online. Maybe he can behave but they need to speak to him and be sure.

I can see how some maybe even a lot of people would not like him. I can see I have seen some of his work and he is not combative at all. He does have strong views and he can be up in your face with the numbers but he is not out to put one person over another.

The Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) is back with dangerous ideas and speakers from around the world. In FODI land, you will be able to explore a dark and dangerous landscape with conversations about death, dirty politics, disappearing countries and disruptive behavior to guide your way.

In response to your hosting of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas this year and its sponsors, led by Samsung, I wish to register my concern about the addition of Andrew Bolt to the program.
