where possible & individualistic

Quotations:

Greg Hunt: [tasteless; where possible; maturely;  ] No, actually I wasn't looking to walk into this space, but anyway. No. There is a point of agreement with Mark here, and that is that anything which in any way focuses on the victim is inevitably going to be tasteless and almost certainly destructive. I'm not a great believer in censorship. I think we have the laws which should be allowing free speech where possible. But then there are  social conventions,and it is the distinguish between the two. that's important here. As a general principle, I think we can deal with these topics maturely, and I think that's the real development in society in the last, you know, decade or more we can deal with suicide and sexual assault and mental illness in a way which we did not. So, that's, I think, the primary place to start in most of these things.

Alice Sexton: [break into] Peter you suggest that Australian should ideally be donating a third of their income to charity. How will we achieve change from the current culture where the focus is on living an individualistic lifestyle, we're earning more to spend more and it's harder than ever to break into the property market. 

Definitions:

where possible:
when or where you have an opportunity to do something;

individualistic:
believing that what individual people want is more important than what society or the government wants
