It's colloquially referred to as "Invasion Day" by "those guys".

I worked. Not that I really care about Australia day. I just think it's an opportunity for pseudo-patriots to get shitfaced - an attitude which I loath.

The same goes for music festivals, in that people go half for the music and half to get drunk most of the time

Australia really has nothing to be proud of. Usually History is taught in schools to instill a bit of patriotism, but Australian history is almost nothing but racism. We haven't been in anything interesting on a global scale, we don't have any documents to be proud of like the First Amendment of the US, and we really don't have any heroes like Lincoln to show us how awesome people from our country can be.

yeah did you catch gillard's speech on australia day at the citizenship ceremony? something about australia having a great history of immigration? yeah right get real. we have a ****ing horrible history of immigration. although at least all the old racists are dying out, which is a positive thing.

American history is the same to be honest. I almost view American and Australian history as the same in that both of our nations are just extensions of Anglo-rooted oppression against indigenous people. This sounds very fourteen year old-ish but you know I'm right.

Lincoln (as with most other historical figures) really wasn't cool and our famous documents have loads of racism and other subtle messages, it's just that they only teach the cool sounding intros in school. America has invented a number of things and has made cultural contributions but I feel that the bad outweighs the good and the way we achieved the good leaves me wearing the title 'American' as a badge of shame.

I bring this up way too much on UG and it pisses people off. I'm not anti-American or anti-Australian, I just think the people we conquered deserve their own place in the world, know'm sayin? I just wish America, Australia, etc. would just at least take their foot off instead of smashing indigenous peoples into the ground.

Edit: Also, sorry I went all serious in the Myoos thread.

oh my god, tell me about it. one of my acquaintances (downgraded from friend when i found out she was a ****ing bigot) genuinely believes that gillard is a shit pm just because she's a woman. plus she's racist and sexualitist. i wish i could say that her being greek had nothing to do with it, but it's due to her so-called orthodox beliefs (she doesn't observe the premarital sex view, ironically). so much of my family is racist, sexist and sexualitist it's not funny.

Yes, American history is by no means without its blemishes but America has a lot to be proud of. It still remains the only secular democracy in the world. The First Amendment to the Constitution is a beautiful thing, which secures freedom of speech (among other great things) in writing. Sure other countries almost guarantee the same freedoms, but other countries weren't founded on them.

It seems quite common in social interactions for me to think "Are they joking? Jesus Christ I hope they're joking".

That being said, the Constitution is still one of the major reasons why America hasn't gotten rid of its ridiculous gun laws...

^ That's because right-wing Americans treat the Constitution and Bill of Rights as scripture.
