On Patriotism


Australia is endowed with the world’s oldest continuing surviving culture in the world, and yet militarisation defines us. Sixty thousand years of rich, ancient Aboriginal tradition, culture and civilisation is disregarded for the contrived myths of 1788 and Anzac. Why does commemorating the centenary of World War I dominate our sense of patriotism? What does it really mean to love and serve your country? Paul Daley in conversation with Clare Wright about his book `On Patriotism'
