Politics

A nation's state

An Australian republic can only be argued for convincingly at the level of feeling - on what we feel towards the place and for one another ... a true republic ... is founded not on the loyalty of its citizens to their head of state, but on their loyalty to one another: on bonds, which already exist and which we already recognise, of reciprocal concern and care and affection. - David Malouf, 2000
