This stirring speech has been broadcast nationally on radio and television and published in Quarterly Essay 44.At a moment when the ferment of Tahrir Square has spread around the world to unsettle the status quo, Flanagan’s provocative ideas resonate with a new mood and a new questioning.Above all, Flanagan says, we need to take our compass more from ourselves and less from the powerful if we are to find hope.We need to look the disease of Australia in the eye, the disease of conformity that is ill preparing us for the future.
