You must read all of this. I insist.

John Birmingham :
....if Australia Day is about anything other than pinching a whole continent off the black fellas, it has to be about making up for that original dispossession by creating a place where people are free to do as they damn well please, even if that means not buying into a bunch of increasingly commercial nationalistic bullshit.
It used to be patriotic, downright Australian in fact, to not give a shit about Australia Day.
