The statistics reveal "cairnsblog" is playing a pivotal role in engaging the community in debate, once again.
The past decade or so has seen Australians retreat from public debate and our society has suffered from it. Many academics have been warning this loss of active citizenry is weakening our democracy, ripening us for dictatorial type Governments.
So, three cheers for "cairnsblog" which has proven a successful forum for community dialogue and debate!!!

Michael Moore is achieving something all journalists dream out - bringing back the community into political dialogue, awakening the people from their slumbers in front of the TV set, and making them CITIZENS again.
I hope that "cairnsblog" continues as an accessible, vibrant, open forum after the Council elections.

I hope too, the academics at James Cook University participate more in these online debates. We need their insights and leadership.

The American economy, the future of globalism, the environment and global warming, our health care system (and the Cairns Base Hospital!!) local government issues ....we have so much to discuss!

Just want to say congratulations and keep up the good work.

Great to have a forum where people can actually have their say.

Sorry for your personal loss over creating the blog.
