“We’re doomed” – C-3PO – the pending end of the world as we know it – or not

Clearly marriage equality will lead to the end of civilisation through devastating disruption of the social fabric of society. This will be the final straw. After all think of all of the other things that have led to society’s demise (in no special order):

  • The Pill
  • Martin Luther’s list nailed to the doors of the Catholic Church
  • The Steam Engine
  • The Internal Combustion Engine
  • Women voting
  • Non-landowners voting
  • Native title
  • Rock and roll
  • Jazz
  • Atonalism
  • The miniskirt
  • The swim suit
  • Abolition of slavery and apartheid
  • Women in the workplace
  • The forty hour work week
  • Abolition of child labour
  • Paid parental leave
  • The old age pension
  • Genetically modified food
  • Solar power
  • In vitro fertilisation
  • Counter-culture
  • Free love
  • Divorce
  • No more white Australia policy
  • Nationalism (well that actually came pretty close -still might)
  • Abolition of rule by hereditary monarchy
  • Women on the battle field
  • Dissolution of Empire

As you can see from the following graph – marriage equality is new to the game but we’ve been overcoming the end of civilisation for centuries.
