Summary
Not long after 9/11 Don Watson wrote a Quarterly Essay about Australia's relationship with the US. Called Rabbit Syndrome, it provoked huge debate -unsurprisingly, given that America is Australia's most important ally. But America is just about everyone's most important ally. So what is it that has made the US so extraordinarily successful? Why do we love it so much yet clearly loathe it at the same time? How can it be so dynamic yet so neglectful of its own citizens, such a land of freedom and oppression all at once?
