Bearing the subversive Balmain Teacher’ College Library stamp , Sydney, this 1944 book is expected to be banned in Queensland. The Newman Government has been shaken by the democratic voting process after another absolutely fabulous LNP candidate was skinned in a by - election, this time in the seat of Redcliffe. In Brisbane today , LNP mugwump , Fritz von Waffleburger said the divisive Danish book , which spreads the dangerous idea of teaching democracy in schools , could result in scores of born to rule conservative politicians losing their seats in the near future, not only in Queensland , but Victoria and the Northern Territory , where a former Chief Minister has pulled the plug in the Mango Madness Season.
The explosive book tells how the Danish Folk High School system helped the country stand against Hitler’s forces when they took over the country. This kind of stance could undermine the Newman sell off blitzkrieg , which includes schools . Like the Feds , the Queensland Government frequently shouts :" Seig Heil! We are open for business!"
Waffleburger said rude opponents of the LNP government , including Lefty lawyers , repeatedly stated Queensland is like Hitler’s Germany . If this outrageous misrepresentation of the government gained momentum , a dangerous book like this could add fuel to the fire and , more importantly, cause voters to kick the Kaiser out .
He quoted a passage from the disturbing book’s foreword by co-author Christopher Moller . "In Denmark we have created in our people a real understanding of the democratic way of life , so that all are vividly aware that this is the only path for us to tread . The proof of our success is that the Nazi and Fascist ideologies made no headway among the Danish people ; they saw through their inequities and shams and recognised them for what they were – the negation of everything for which Denmark had long been proud to stand. This is not , of course, due solely to the Folk High Schools , but in considerable and influential sections of the people the work the bulk of these schools came to form a bulwark against Nazism and Fascism."
