How did the conscription debate divide Australian society in World War 2?

Yes, there are different aspects that divided the economy in ww1. the first reason was conscription; this was a term given to a law that was attempted to be made in ww1 times. if approved it meant that all men from 18-up would be forced to go to war. a lot of people disagreed with this and so the economy was split into agreers and disagreers of conscription. another reason was 'the white feather'. if a man did not go to war willingly he would usually be sent a white feather which symbolises cowardliness. some people agreed with the white feather and some people didn't so again this caused a division of economy. some people disagreed with war completely which would have caused debates.

Why was conscription introduced in World War 2 when the majority of people opposed it in World War 1?

How was propaganda used in australia during the conscription campaign of ww1?

Propaganda was used in Australia during World War I to sway public opinion towards conscription. It involved exaggerating the threat to Australia, questioning the loyalty of those who opposed conscription, and portraying conscription as necessary for the survival of the nation. This propaganda campaign divided the country, leading to two referendums on conscription in 1916 and 1917, both of which were defeated.
