This week saw the launch of Real Heroes Walk Away, the national campaign against violence which aims to end the king-hit culture that has seen so many young Australian men killed or injured in random and often drunken assaults.
The campaign, launched by News Limited newspapers and the national website news.com.au, is different from other campaigns in that it doesn’t demand that the government act or the police do more. Rather, it is framed around a belief in personal responsibility. The only way this problem can ever be solved is if individuals take ownership of their actions and think through the consequences of those actions.
The only way this behaviour can ever be challenged is if good blokes speak up and intervene when they see their mates acting in a violent fashion.
