If we look forward- what do we see?
Most of us would hope that the future would be spelling out a new age of tolerance, acceptance and a greater understanding of our country's many flaws.
What's happening now seems to suggest otherwise.
Again most of us are trying to shrug off the suggestion that there might be a country-wide culture of intolerance, again most of us are being overly sensitive to any criticism from abroad.
And there in a nutshell is Australia's greatest flaw- we can't accept any critique from an outsider. The mainstream reaction will always be to turn around and sing our praises.
It's time we realised we aren't perfect, we are very flawed and if we don't start listening to others we'll continue to sink into a pit of the moronic.
