Senator Harradine a Worthy but Deluded Opponent: Eros
The Eros Association today paid tribute to the man they locked horns with more times than they cared to remember. Eros CEO Fiona Patten said that he was a formidable political opponent, driven by his religious convictions and a cultural mindset stuck in the 1950s. “From the late 1980s onward, he used his balance of power in the Senate to try and roll back the supernova of eroticism that was exploding all around him”, she said. “He knew how to work a government like nobody else and was always one step ahead of them in his efforts to ban pornography. But he did not understand that the technological revolution of the 1990s was the beginning of a new way of life and that pornography was an integral part of that life. He thought if you can control the brown paper bags, you could control what was in them.”
Melbourne Movie Premier
The Australian Sex Party is helping to bring the movie Neurons to Nirvana: Understanding Psychedelic Medicines to Melbourne. Following the movie, Fiona Patten will join other panelists to discuss issues raised in the film.
“The film looks into five currently illegal drugs and their therapeutic potential,” said Ms. Patten. “These are drugs that have been historically condemned despite having a therapeutic potential. It's only been in the past decade that this potential is being explored and we're seeing promising results elsewhere in the world.”
Neurons to Nirvana will screen at the Village Theaterette, State Library of Victoria on Tuesday the 29th and Wednesday the 30th of April. Sales from the event will help raise money for the Australian organisation, Psychedelic Research in Science and Medicine (PRISM). PRISM are looking to research the effects of treating post-traumatic stress disorder with MDMA. Studies overseas have proved very promising.
