Persistence in Folly by Les Murray

April 1985, no. 69

The heat of recent controversy in Australia about the meaning and value of multiculturalism in education, in history and in society at large is an indication of the tenacity with which a dominant culture, in this case that of British Australia, clings to its privileges.

However, to the extent that these cultures come to recognise the differences and tensions existing within the dominant culture itself they lessen its exclusivity and widen the choices available to everybody.
