This is the new litany to be recited at all Australian events, public and private, that you attend in the future. It is the verbal equivalent of taking a knee or saluting Gessler’s cap.
While it may seem to be boot licking in the short term, look upon it as an investment in long-term comfort. Comfort, that is, until they invent yet another new religion of cringe – and we are required to kowtow to a different set of overlords.
This may all seem to be odd in a nation and amongst young people that value the term ” F*** You ” so highly.
For myself, I prefer to say ” Genug ist genug ” and get up off my knee.
