Canberra Needs Better Social Lubricant

By che 24 August 2005 21

The CT has this story on Canberran’s losing touch with their neighbours. It talks of the social exclusion and fragmentation of the Canberra community due in part by our highly educated women having fewer babies, childrenbeing the usual way of bringing communities together.

I’d like to suggest a solution to the problem, firstly shutting down the TV signals in Canberra and secondly more neighbourhood pubs. What better lubricant could there be than beer?

What’s Your opinion?

I’m going to argue the pleasurable social effects of cheap beer till the cows come home.

Em, think of the viking longhouse situation, women feeding children, older children tearing around the place like tornado’s, males together drinking ales and talking about when Valad chopped his arm off and sprayed the enemy with his blood. Overall a very social atmosphere, warm, cosy and I’m sure a great many interactions were produced, regardless of child in tow or not 🙂
