I think the biggest problem with Australia is that everyone here seems to think that we really are all great people that give each other a fair go. I see much racism here, especially towards aboriginals. The government seems to be heading down the same path as the US and we seem to all just be too content resting on our laurels as a perceived fantastic nation to live in.
The multiculturalism is one of the greatest aspects of Austrlaia in my opinion, however even this is not free from the illusion, for it seems that there is a strong pressure for cultures to conform to the "Australian way", rather than just being free from ridicule to continue on the way they wish.
There is certainly much to like about Australian life, but through my eyes, it falls well short of an ideal nation.
