We have created this blog to provide an open, pluralist, forum for civilised discussion on the evolution of Australian and New Zealand thought.We welcome contribution whether by comment or post. If you would like to become a posting contributor, please contact Jim Belshaw - ndarala(at)optusnet(dot)com(dot)au. Posting need not be a burden. Irregular contributions are welcome. In time, we hope to build a team that will provide diverse and stimulating viewpoints without too great a load on any contributor.
