Comment

Until the 1960s, to be Australian meant being Anglo, eating white bread and
listening to Mozart. But – thankfully – we have outgrown our teenage belligerence
and are now mature and worldly. Our identity is one created by each of us. And
there’s mutual gratitude for those who sought and found asylum here.

Australia is proof that the whole is better than the sum of its parts. Different
cultures and geographies and skills and dreams are what makes our country so
coveted.

There is example upon example of people who have escaped death and not only
stayed alive but created for themselves phenomenal success.

We are the recipients of their success.

We work so hard to defend Australia’s identity of A Fair Go. How better to
illustrate it.

Who then is unAustralian?
