Keating was a douchebag who promoted "Not thinking a certain way just because people told you to think that way" and then told his students how they were supposed to think. He was a hypocrite and an asshat.

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
these are some of my favourite quotes from mr paul keating (fmr australian prime minister) and they happen to be rants so they're appropriate for this thread:
on john howard (fmr conservative australian prime minister):
'I am not like the Leader of the Opposition. I did not slither out of the Cabinet room like a mangy maggot…'
'From this day onwards, Howard will wear his leadership like a crown of thorns, and in the parliament I’ll do everything to crucify him.'
'The principle saboteur, the man with the cheap fistful of dollars.'
'This is the sort of little-boy, stamp your foot stuff which comes from a financial yuppie when you shoe him into parliament.'
(regarding a verbal attack from john hewson) 'Like being flogged with a warm lettuce.'
these are all about andrew peacock (fmr leader of the opposition)
'I suppose that the Honourable Gentleman’s hair, like his intellect, will recede into the darkness.'
'The Leader of the Opposition is more to be pitied than despised, the poor old thing. The Liberal Party ought to put him down like a faithful dog because he is of no use to it and of no use to the nation.'
'We’re not interested in the views of painted, perfumed gigolos.'
'It is the first time the Honourable Gentleman has got out from under the sunlamp.'
re some national party dolt 'Codd will be lucky to get a job cleaning shithouses if I ever become Prime Minister.'
re the liberal party generally:
'They have no ideas, no integrity and no ability.'
'I’m not running a seminar for dullards on the other side.'
'These intellectual hoboes.'
re a member of his own party: 'That you Jim? Paul Keating here. Just because you swallowed a fucking dictionary when you were about 15 doesn’t give you the right to pour a bucket of shit over the rest of us.'
