Three Articles for ANZAC Day

Sharon Mascall-Dare: ANZAC Day: Ethics of Remembrance (via the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma)
“From an ethical perspective, such a prolonged focus on commemoration and remembrance raises numerous issues.”

Jane Rawson: Don’t Mention the War (via Overland)
“Courage, ingenuity, good humour, mateship and even sacrifice are qualities which have no inherent relationship with war. Sure, they occur during war; they also occur in primary schools and at stitch and bitch sessions in inner-city bars.”

Bruce Scates: Political Rhetoric Makes a Parody of Remembrance (via the Age)
“Seldom do we consider the flawed political systems and destructive ideologies that pit the young men of one nation against those of another. And in that, again we do that generation an injustice.”

Lest we forget.
