These identities, although commonly portrayed, are for the majority of the population, incorrect. Goldsworthy has really let us all see into the international view of Australia, with a particularly strong and memorable quote from Crocodile Dundee “That’s not a knife. THIS is a knife.” being one of the most memorable ‘Aussie’ quotes around and one which many different foreign cultures affiliate us with as True Blue? On being Australian lets us see. But what percentage of Australian citizens do you know that carry a knife?
In Australia this meant cultural and racial homogeneity. So we are no talking about racial equality. In fact, and although this seems absolutely contradictory to us today, a commitment to egalitarianism in Australia went hand-in-hand with a belief in racial inequality. So on the one hand you had support for the equality of individuals but at the same time the inequality of races was promoted in Australia. As Australia’s first PM said the doctrine of equality of man was never intended to include racial equality and was never intended to apply to the equality of Englishmen and the Chinaman.’ It was not possible at the time to commit to both – only be equal because all were the same – Australia could only be egalitarian if it was homogenous & this meant white and
We wanted to see Oahu for ourselves and decided against the forced destinations and mass humanity of your standard tour buses in places like Hawaii, Australia, Italy, or any other tourist destination for that matter.

Government should not be able to make personal decisions for society because it disrupts lifestyles and ultimately does not benefit people. Technological distractions lessen humanity in Fahrenheit 451 in a lot of ways. For example Mildred Montag is the wife of Guy and she is obsessed
Sir Winston Churchill wanted our Second AIF members to stay in the European war which Australians were nervous about because the Japanese were seemingly getting closer and closer to Australia. Churchill stated that as long as Singapore remained in British hands, plenty of protection will be there for a Japanese attack. The Australian PM sticked to his wishes, but as soon as Singapore fell; the Australian prime Minister brought the AIF back to the Pacific War. When the returning soldiers were on their way back to Australia, Churchill wanted them to quickly stop by and defend Burma. The Australian Prime Minister said no and this was officially the first time Australia had ever said no to England.
The first paragraph concludes with “how dare anyone ban the carrying of the Australian national flag – especially on Australia Day?” The indignant tone highlight its irony, since that is exactly what had happened. This epiplexis also rebukes the ban and implies that symbols of belonging are an integral part of our
It’s dry, it’s extreme, it’s self-mocking and ironic. Why it’s Australian humour of course. Dating all the way back to convict times, Australians have been well known for their sense of humour that has become almost a second language. Our slang and our jokes are very unique and not always understood by outsiders, but that is what makes Australia so different and special in the way that we share this good ol’ Aussie quirk.
