Seeing this Ron Cobb 'toon from '73 reminded me again of the power of a good cartoon. As a young adult this, amongst others (eg Captain Goodvibes), had a hugerole in shaping my understanding of the world that lasts to this day.
As Dave Riley at Left Click notes, 38 years later Cobb's 'toon is "archetypal of what underpins contemporary Australia and the meaning is as potent and relevant today as it was when the image was first drawn.
Scary isn't it if you pause long enough to consider it?"
