Change the date

Every year it gets harder to acknowledge this day as our nation's day because it represents not gain for the world but loss of a rich, vibrant 40 000 year-old culture. Well, not total loss—but not for lack of trying with pre-millenial governments doing their best to scrub it from "modernity".

Change the date; any day but this one. It's the near-moral equivalent of Columbus Day, a day also rank on the nose given crimes against humanity—actual genocide—that Columbus ordered and participated in.

I'm treating Australia Day like an extra Sunday and devoid of "Ozzie". 

Don't get me wrong; I want a national day of celebration for all Australians.

Just not January 26.
