Most would agree Australia is a fantastic place to live. If like me, you are at the end of your working life or if are well off and in a privileged position, then Australia is gold. If you are not well off, if you are young and only just starting out, if you are a migrant making a new life, if you are sick or if you are handicapped, then in Australia you have the best chance of succeeding of any country in the world. Bar none.
For a variety of reasons, Australia has been like this for at least 75 years. We should hope that it goes on for many years to come, and that the blight of internal or external conflict does not occur in this country as it has in too many nations in the world.
There are a few different kinds of security that impact Australia.
First there is the security which allows nations to trade with others across the globe, and so makes all of us better off without taking from one another.
