How has militarisation come to define Australian valour? Why has commemorating the centenary of World War I dominated our sense of patriotism?

On Patriotism explores what it really means to love and serve your country. Paul Daley contemplates ways to escape the cultural binds that tie us to Anzac, British settlement and flag-waving.
