I think a lot of Australian’s live in a bubble. A bubble caused by the fact the country we live in, is basically the sum of our continent, and by the fact that Australia is an island surrounded by water with no countries at our immediate border.
In this bubble, people think the way Australia is, is the end all and be all. They think that if you have a different tradition, you have brought here, to something practiced here in Australia, you should learn to conform or leave.
How is it in a country, whose foundation is built on multi-culturalism, is so afraid of something different being introduced to them?
And why do I here increasingly “our country”, like Australia is a club house, and we can pick who can come in?
Australia is the country you live in. It doesn’t make it yours. It should be for anybody wanting to live in the lucky country.
