That is entirely true, I do worry about that. The day hasn't been about what makes this country good for quite some time, its a day that brings out the worst in many people. In fact, as I type, I can hear someone doing doughnuts in a Holden ute in a heavily pedestrian congested road. The day brings out the yobbos and the racists. And how can they say they love this country when they ruin its image with things like the Cronulla Riots and their general racism? Granted this is a very small minority of people, the rednecks with southern cross tattoos and flags draped over their backs, but on Australia Day they all seem to come out and cause trouble.What a farce of a holiday, hardly anyone celebrates the real point of the holiday anymore.
I.e. embraces the cultural history of Australia and the events of the past, it's mostly nowadays FUCK YEAH LET'S GET PISSED CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNT FUCK OATH BRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.
Sorry, but if you're going to have a holiday for a specific reason, at least celebrate the damn reason behind it.
Like Christmas, no longer has a religious meaning (not that I am, but I can acknowledge that's where it came from).
Same goes for Easter as well.
Sorry, I mean hooray for Australia (and Victoria being the best state), but really, to the masses it's lost its meaning nowadays.
