The ANZAC day commemorative event Nation wide has been and is an amazing success for such a young Country as Australia. Even with the great demographic changes Australia has undergone, ANZAC Day has grown bigger, perhaps because the ANZAC Tradition is so close to the hearts of Australians.

It's akin to a Religion for Australia. Even though the Wars fought were often for imperial goals of little interest to Australians themselves except for the defense against the threat of Japanese invasion during WW2. It was this fundamental lack of selfishness to participate, instigated by bonds that tie us together. Which is the spirit of ANZAC, binding Australians and encourages sharing with other Australians.

The three principals the Australian Soldier always embodied were:

Mateship
Egalitarianism
Volunteering

These are very deep abiding principals that can hold one the worlds youngest Nations, on the worlds only Island continent to stay in Unity for all time.

If, ever the Australian People are represented by a true Australian Republic, it will be easy to identify when these three Principals are preeminent in the Republics Constitution.

"isms" And So To War

In little stale cellars
Under citadels of hate
Malignant villains whisper
Their plans for Mankind's fate

"They don't think like us" they sneer
They don't deserve to thrive.
Let's manufacture reasons
To bury them alive!"

"There are crimes to be invented
So that we can build a case
To slaughter those we see as foes
And seize our rightful place."

From where these monsters come
There are always plenty more
To dream up all their "isms"
That propel us into war.

----------

To honor those who fight and die to rid the world of "isms".

Yes, much the same, and it is a Public Holiday.

Some use it for reflection, and some apparently use it for Spamming threads about it.

Well, I guess all one can do is take in consideration the mindset of those doing the spamming, that in itself speaks volumes.

Marches and religious services mainly. It's not a fireworks kind of occasion. The Wikipedia article covers it well.:)
