It would be a travesty to see the Anglo-Saxon culture, which has given more to the world than any other culture, die out simply because people thought it was passé and that foreign cultures were funky and trendy.
There aren't really that many Asians in Australia, certainly not as many as you make it out to be (go 50km away from the cities and you'd be hard pressed to find any Asians about). You have a greater influx of Europeans who are bringing with them their culture but I hear nothing on them endangering the Anglo-Australian way of life.
