Why are the Aussies here so much more reasonable?

I've never been to Australia, but the Aussies here on Gag are so much more reasonable than the other English speaking members, on average..
It's rare to find one obsessing about some minor issue they have. You nearly always get level-headed, balanced opinions from the Australian members.

I can't help being curious as to why.. I'm not saying there are no unreasonable people in Australia, but there sure seem to be few of them here!

    • The Aussies I've met abroad (never been to your country) make the same impression. So much less drama, generally, less buttons to be afraid of pushing, you don't call people names all the time.

      Not to mention the girls are frequently really pretty, nice unforced smiles...

    • pretty much yeah in general, but there r a lot who swear like sailors actually. really depends on the person u come across.
      some Aussies r complete twits.

  • I think it's just their natural disposition most of them. I've been informed there's some unpleasant Aussies but you don't encounter them much unless you go to those areas I guess. I believe my friend said the unpleasant Aussies are referred to as Bogans.

    • People who travel to other countries tend to be friendly and insightful; otherwise, hey, they would have stayed home

      so of course, since I haven't been to Australia, I haven't seen a real cross section of the people.

  • cuz they're ausum

  • Maybe it's the good weather 🌞

    I think the lifestyle there is just more laid back and not as fast paced as in other countries, and it reflects in how their citizens conduct themselves. I've never been to Australia though so that's a wild guess.

  • No offence but their cricketers are not very civil and well mannered. Other than that I too like Australia and its people.

    • You can't reason without generalizing. But maybe that's your preference.

  • In Australia and New Zealand we live a life that is free of many of the world's problems. In general we have less stress and a work hard but also don't forget to play hard lifestyle. So we love BBQs with mates over a beer. We have a good work-life/leisure balance. As we don't have many of the world's problems in Australia and New Zealand we have less stress and therefore are pretty level-headed.

  • The amount of Aussie users here is growing... and for some reason most of them do seem to be chill reasonable folks.

  • Australia is one of the most bigoted, racist, violent, communist, ignorant, white supremacist, backwards country in the world. We've had 5 government coups in the last 5 years. It is illegial to consume alcohol on public grounds because we get way too violent. Australians do not celebrate other Australians' successes here - if somebody is successful, we treat them with contempt and jealousy - the only exception is if they made their money in Hollywood. And you know how US cops like to shoot black people? Once upon a time, Aussie cops liked to shoot poor people.

    If we weren't chill and relaxed, this place would be pretty depressing.

    • No, it's not. There are standards for being reasonable: no name calling, racist put downs, no refusal to consider alternative points of view...

  • Lol why so specific?

    • Can I ask if you're from Australia/NZ yourself? Profile doesn't say.

    • I am from neither country, I am from a country far worse than two those, it's so bad, I cry that maybe one day I can leave for pastures new.

  • Here in Australia, children's shows portray 'cool' and 'level headed' as fairly synonymous. Also one of the most common phrases here is "she'll be right".
