personally i guess Japan is one due to its economic power, its past history as a great power in military, its culture is stable and unique, it only lacks behind in natural resources and a bit in politics. France is a great power too because it is one of the UN permanent member and it got aircraft carrier and it got history as a great power and a culture. on the other hand, what’s so good about australia? apart from being new, big and have resources, australia doesn’t have a culture, does have much history, a small army and navy, economy is not as sound as france and japan that they are usually more advanced in technology and even in industry such as making products out of resources instead of diggin and selling resources like australia. australia can only be a middle power to my thoughts, if it’s small and not an island, it will be worse than vietnam.

I dont follow politics very well so i just wanted a simple explanation of why Kevin Rudd was voted out of the position and why Gillard is taking over, what party she is in etc.
I’m Australian and i’m just curious as to know what the world thinks of Australia and Australian people.For example anything to do with sport,politics,music, media, way of life and the country itself etc
You’re opinions would be greatly appreciated

I have an assessment task where I have to focus on one or two themes in the media or in politics, which I have to satirise ie. make fun of, find the flaws in that particular area. Im looking for something big in the media over the past month in Australia. Any suggestions?
I’ll be moving to the US from Australia within the next 6 months… my husband is a US citizen.
I don’t know a whole lot about Politics over there but i’m very keen to get more involved and I was wondering how I would go about that.
I’m not a fan of George Bush but I don’t really know anything about his party is he a Republican or Democrat?
What are the differences between those 2 parties?
Is there anywhere I could go to learn more about state and federal politics and how the voting system works?
Thank you for you help
In the United States the term “liberal” is generally synonymous with “socialist” or “communist”. But if you look at European, Asian, and South American countries the term liberal usually means “centre right” or just “centrist”. Why though? “Centre right” and “centrist” don’t match up with the term “liberal” found in the dictionary, plus these parties are usually described as the conservative parties of their countries.
I have two friends, one from Australia and one from Japan, who said that the conservative party in their country is the “liberal democrat party”.

“Remember the government in Australia will not allow you to own a firearm. They cannot hunt, defend their own property, defend their lives or the lives of their families. ”
