Nationalism , Yorro-yorro and a little Leunig magic

Filed under: — Bravus @ 5:24 am

Michael Leunig is a living national treasure in Australia. He’s a cartoonist and occasional commentator, and although I guess he’d fit in the liberal/progressive end of the political spectrum, he always seems much more like a kind, open-hearted, open-eyed innocent wandering through the land and then ever so generously showing us the odds and ends he’s found.

Here’s a meditation of his on nationalism in Australia: http://www.theage.com.au/news/michael-leunig/our-flagging-enthusiasm/2008/01/25/1201157630672.html?page=fullpage#contentSwap2

If you can get hold of a book of his cartoons by all means do.
