“Aussies, wake up, you are riding on MERE LUCK. Your leaders are second-rate. Go on, put a little effort into it”.  There were many surprises last Thursday at a Canberra meeting that went over Donald Horne’s famous book with a fine tooth comb.  

Wouldn’t hurt for every generation to ask the question anew: What is the essence of Australia?

Mary W Maxwell has reported on the conference here at rumourmillnews.
