June 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm WikiPuppies. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rex Hunt, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, WikiPuppies bark dig 22:51, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Re: My talk page[edit]

Hi. Although you did provide a source (and a nicely-written one at that), because it is self-published, it cannot be used. I've removed the content again, but if you can back up your edit with a reliable secondary source, feel free to reinstate it. Cheers. WikiPuppies bark dig 23:26, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Blanking well sourced accurate material is vandalism. If you have problems please take it to the talk page. In this case, the symbols of Australia comprise a major part of its culture, and the symbolism of the monarchy is especially important. Rjensen (talk) 08:34, 18 February 2014 (UTC) I faiil to se how it designates as culture, reference or no reference

You're asking how does one learn about Australian culture. It includes a lot more than football games, although sports make up a bigger part of the culture than any country I know. (My Australian relatives out-talk my American relatives on sports by about 2-1.) The historian will note that in recent years popular republicanism seems to have left the younger generation rather ignorant of the role of the sovereign and royal symbols. On this see the fascinating article by Peter Spearritt on "Royal Progress: The Queen and Her Australian Subjects," in ACH: The Journal of the History of Culture in Australia (April 1988, pp 75-94.) (note the title of the journal) Spearritt shows how the royal role has grown weaker every year, but the political system is unable to opt for republicanism. It can't get rid of the Queen. (mayne it can get rid of King Charles, but I doubt it.) Most scholars emphasize that royalty cannot be real because of the intense equalitarianism of Australia. I recommend comparing The Lucky Country (1964) by Donald Horne (which emphasized the strength of equalitarianism) with the recent The Lucky Culture and the Rise Of An Australian Ruling Class by Nick Cater (2013) (which emphasized the weakness of equalitarianism). On the issue of Australian symbolism, see "Nationalism and Republicanism in Australia: The Evolution of Institutions, Citizenship and Symbols" by John Warhurst, in Australian Journal of Political Science (1993) v 28 pp 100-120. The broadest study is mark McKenna, Captive Republic: A History of Republicanism in Australia 1788-1996 (1997). God luck with your exploration! Rjensen (talk) 12:09, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Don't write your pro-monarchist shit on my wall thank you. You want to lick the Queen of England's arse and pledge alleigence to a foreign person, do it on your own wall, not mine. Face facts, once the old bag dies, the monarchy is doomed. I can't see younger generations wanting to pledge alligence to a foreigner especially a dimwit like Charles, wait and see. Ps, stay off my wall
