Guardian columnist Brigid Delany has written about the sometimes astonishing levels of anger and impatience in Australian society.
She wonders, “if we are the spoilt children of the planet – the only ones to escape a major recession, swept along by this long boom – and therefore we haven’t had the pain or hardship to show us a bit of forbearance and gratitude?”
Do you magically transform into a demented driver behind the wheel of your Barina? Have you stayed up at night just to win an online feud? When was the last time you were angry enough to shout at a complete stranger?
Are you part of angry Australia? How can we start turning the other cheek a bit more?
