One “Ism” For Australia — Australianism!
When some soap-box orator tries to sell you some Utopia in which you will wear a Red, Brown or Black shirt, be very careful before you trade your Australian way of life for any form of foreign “ism.”
Australia can be a better country. Australia will be a better country! But we want to make it better our own way — the Australian way. Let the agitators use their energies to raise the living standards of the foreign countries they admire so much and not try to pull us down to the low level of existence such countries suffer.
