More is­sues need mea­sured ap­proach

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

I ap­pre­ci­ated Mike Sec­combe’s ar­ti­cle telling us about the re­search find­ings in­di­cat­ing bet­ter com­mu­nity-wide men­tal health in US ju­ris­dic­tions that had a low-key ap­proach to chang­ing the laws on mar­riage equal­ity. Imag­ine the im­prove­ments to na­tion­wide men­tal health and the re­lated eco­nomic sav­ings if cur­rently di­vi­sive de­bates in Aus­tralia were also car­ried out cour­te­ously, eth­i­cally, and with due re­gard to facts. Think for ex­am­ple about en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion, ed­u­ca­tional eq­uity and im­mi­gra­tion.
