It is a rare day that some noodle doesn't get their head in a newspaper, telling us how they are "ashamed to be an Australian", because of the actions of our political leaders. One of the motivations often quoted is that today's end-of-civilisation-as-we-know-it will make Australia a pariah in the eyes of the international community.

Strangely, I never hear any of these types proclaiming that, for instance, the Serbs should feel ashamed to be Serbians, or Zimbabweans ashamed to be Zimbabweans. The crimes are far worse, the evidence is much clearer, the international condemnation a damn sight more obvious. So why the silence?
