A craven nation that prefers statues to agility

Australia is a nation scared. Scared to fully stake out its own flag. Scared to install an Australian as head of state. Nervous even about bringing into the daylight a more complete account of its own creation.This is at odds with our strongly internalised ruggedness myth. And it is even more inconsistent with the legendary “fair go”.
