Essays for Australia is a publication of The Centre for the Australian Way of Life at the Institute of Public Affairs
The purpose of Essays for Australia is to explain and defend the values that have created the Australian way of life – democracy, egalitarianism, and freedom in all its dimensions.
The Centre for the Australia Way of Life is a research, education, and communications program of the IPA that aims to:
- Provide the cultural and intellectual leadership required to maintain and enhance the Australian way of life;
- Give a voice to timeless Australian values; and
- Educate young Australians about their own and their country’s history.
Since 1943 the Institute of Public Affairs has been committed to preserving and enhancing a culture of freedom in Australia.
Freedom was once, and can be again, integral to the Australian way of life. For the sake of ourselves, and for the generations that come after us, we cannot afford to lose hope that our way of life can be preserved and enhanced.
But for this to be achieved we must immerse ourselves in the discussion about Australia’s future, and to argue forcefully that the Australian way of life – based on the timeless values of democracy, egalitarianism, and freedom in all its dimensions – is truly the best way of life.
Essays for Australia will help shape that discussion about our future.
