No actually I understood that. It was the reference which seems to blame Australians luxurious living which stumped me. I've never considered Aussies obsessed with material pursuits, although I don't doubt there are some. I do find a larger majority over there who are more interested in things like permiculture and environmental issues more so than many of the so-called Ecos from the E.U. who think of themselves as on top of the enlightened world.
