Lili's thought for ANZAC Day

I do not want to hear a single word about the fine values that Australian military people fought for. We live in a country that mostly shows not a care in the world for the basic human rights of asylum seekers, is a more sexist place than it was 30 years ago, and still sees indigenous Australians facing discrimination every day and living shorter lives. I am anything BUT proud to be an Australian. Our nation is like a spoilt rich brat who has no idea what it is like to fight for survival and has never had reason to reflect on values or one's own shortcomings. Australia thinks and behaves like Donald Trump, the ugly, nasty mess topped of with the self-delusion of the Anzac legend, just like that bizarre thing that lives on Trump's head.
