    Default Before ANZAC Day: some "stirring the pot"

    Germaine Greer, an Australian feminist writer and longterm UK resident, has set off a "hornets nest" in an article in The New Statesman challenging the mythology of Australian manhood. Amidst the article are reminders that others were @ Gallipoli, notably from the Indian Army:http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/...ian-nationhood

    Nothing that results in human progress is achieved with unanimous consent. (Christopher Columbus)

    All great truth passes through three stages: first it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
