Build a new and better national life on the wreckage of the old

The vicar of Cranbourne had some ideas about the long term impact of the war on the country.

At the meeting the Vicar spoke on “Reconstruction after the War.” He pointed out that every one should be considering how he can help to build a new and better national life on the wreckage of the old, that we should try and gain an understanding of the nature of the problems we shall have to face and think out the ways in which our social system may be set on firmer foundations.
