This suggests another important debate about the impact of globalization on the traditional capacities, roles and activities of the nation-state, and on national identities. Talk of this kind is provocative, but seems to me an overstatement of the facts, in both a general sense, and specifically in the case of the Australian experience.

Through such action, the state was visible to the population as a resource to be engaged with for the betterment of their lives. The cultural tradition arising from this situation, Hancock argued, was one of individualism underwritten by the state. “Australian democracy,” he concluded, “has come to look upon the State as a vast public utility, whose duty it is to provide the greatest happiness for the greatest number” (Hancock 1930: 72).
