NOTHING’S CHANGED

‘The Argus’ was a Melbourne newspaper from 1848 to 1957.

“Our history lies within a period filled with a deafening clamour for rights, and a few shrill protests about duties. Our nationalism is a struggle between the landless majority and the landowners, and the air is rent by the complaints of those who have less against those who have more.” – WS Moyes, Anglican Bishop of Armidale NSW, The Argus 2 December 1930.

From The Argus’ leading article on 6 December 1930, discussing Bishop Moyes’ remarks:-

“Our history lies within a period filled with a deafening clamour for rights and a few shrill protests about duties. The air is rent by the complaints of those who have less against those who have more.”

To this day in Australia, it seems land must remain invisible.
