Hyperventilation over Hyde Park statues is misplaced outrage

And then there’s Adam Goodes’ plaque on the Australian of the Year walk in Canberra. As the ABC reported last year, there are 56 plaques on the walk but only one was shielded by perspex. Goodes’ face has previously been crossed out with a deep scratch. According to the National Capital Authority, the perspex was installed to prevent further damage.But where is the widespread outrage over these incidents? Where is the buy-in from political leaders? The sustained media interest? The hand-wringing about what it all means for national identity?Here’s hoping it just got lost and ended up somewhere else by mistake. The alternative isn’t very flattering to contemplate.
