The Price of What?
Wednesday, 27 November 2002
Janet Albrechtsen blogs in the Oz today on the dangers of Australian political life and culture becoming too Europeanised. Janet warns:
AUSTRALIA'S tendency to swoon over European-style sophistication requires constant vigilance.
Personally, I think this fight is lost: the Gaggia replaced the Massey Ferguson as our main technological icon years ago. As for the rest of the article, where Janet belabours the collectively dumb who want to tear down the individually talented, I really can't be bothered. It's one of those false dichotomies where the gap between the two extremes is so wide you could drive a truck through it. Or a Massey Fergusson tractor, come to think of it.
