Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 24th 2009
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 25, 2009 MB Have we found our freedom of choice? AUSTRALIANS embrace freedom and be- lieve that anything is possible. Despite the tough economic climate and local health and welfare issues, we remain positive and optimistic. But unlike the freedom expressed in other countries as a civic duty or legal require- ment, Australians' idea of freedom is rooted in the land and our down-to-earth attitude rather than in political terms. We embrace a simple, affordable lifestyle and this in turn delivers us freedom of choice. The concept is another central theme emerging from allofaus.com.au, a special social networking site inviting all of us to join in a debate about our nation. An initiative by Qantas supported by News Limited, the site aims to discover what contemporary Australia has become, what drives us and makes our country what it is in the 21st century. ''You might think freedom is a pretty straightforward theme,'' says social re- searcher Mark McCrindle, who is monitor- ing the site, ''but its expressed pretty strongly in our attitude.'' After thousands of visits nationally to the site, it is also clear our community spirit is strong, and interstate rivalry is alive and growing. ''We've had the opening salvos fired in the state versus state debate,'' says McCrindle. ''It's a friendly rivalry, not bitter or spiteful. It's good natured but we do love our parochial battles in Australia.'' As Peter from Sydney confirms: ''Waking up knowing that I don't live in Melbourne lifts my mood on an almost daily basis.''
