Where is Australia? You mean that big white mass on the bottom of the globe? Err....
(Sorry.. couldn't resist... )
My personal feelings are that Australia is one of the better nations in the world and largely because of that isolation of being it's very own
Continent. Outside of a couple specific exceptions with individuals from there, I have a very high regard for Australian folk. A couple of friends
here hail from there.
Having said that...and speaking for myself, although I think some others may share the sentiment? Where some tension arises and among the only times I
really pay attention to the Mini- for location is when bashing my own nation takes on a vicious, personal edge...as if a person lives here and knows
the systems by experience.
When I look to see that isn't the case ...and Australians are certainly no glaring exception, it's all over, then I do get my fur up a bit.
Americans bashing other nations, where it turns vicious or personal are ALSO over the line. A few British folk made that point with brutal clarity
(and had every right to) back during the English riots which started breaking out around the nation some time back. Same thing here....and that's all
that comes to mind?
