eurekaSydney
An Australia guided by the spirit of the Eureka Tradition as symbolised by the diggers' flag and oath:
"We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties"

Tunc Justus (thus justice) ©lyrics Raffaello Carboni
Arr & Music by K.Mazzella / Published by Peer Music

Mendacium sibi sicut
Turbinis viam augustam
In urbe et orbe terrarum aperuit
Stultus dicit in corde suo
Non est Deus
Stultus dicit in corde suo
Non est Deus

Veritas vero lente
Passu passu sicut puer
Tandem aliquando
Janunculat ad lucem
Tunc justus ut palma florescit
Tunc justus ut palma florescit

The translation is

Listen to me the lie
Like a whirlwind clears itself a royal road
Either in town or country, through the whole face of the earth
The fool in his heart says
There is no God
The fool in his heart says
There is no God

The truth however slow
Step by step, like a little child
Someday at last
Finds a footpath to light
Then the righteous flourish like a palm tree
Then the righteous flourish like a palm tree

"The Eureka Stockade", Raffaello CarboniÍs eye witness account, starts with this quote in Latin... The sentiment to me is so pertinent.
