    as to the apparent British view of Empire strategy in the immediate future. The events of the past two months have thrown into contrasting relief the two fundamental elements in Australian affairs – the strong ties that bind us to Britain, and our distinct nationhood, vis-a-vis our Pacific neighbours especially. Australian life is like the Australian penny. It has the King’s head on the one side, and the kangaroo on the other. Under the liberal doctrine that transformed Empire into Commonwealth, and under the protection of British sea control in the Pacific, it has been our fortune that these two elements should be complementary, never fundamentally antithetic. Our fate now is that they should appear…

  • Ethical Complications Of Plato's Republic

By structure, I mean thereby the…

  • Analysis: To Have Another Language Is To Have A Second Soul

For example, when thinking about objects Spanish speakers tend to associate objects with genders while English speakers do not.

  • Canadian Identity Essay

    The concept of Canadian identity is difficult to define, as there are many unique interpretations of what it means to be Canadian. Throughout the development of Canada’s political and cultural landscape, a divide between the historically English and French speaking regions of Canada formed and, even today, this divide continues to exist.
