Right, and the shared culture and values that exist between the anglophone nations of course have no roots in Anglo-Saxon culture, right?

The very fact that Anglo-Saxon is used to refer to our shared cultures in academia (for example in this article here about the Socio-Cultural Environment for Entrepreneurship) shows that perhaps it is you, and not me, who doesn't understand the term Anglo-Saxon. :)
Just because some people in academia use a term doesn't mean we 'plebeians' must accept it as some kind of ultimate truth. While no one would disagree that Canada has certain Anglo-Saxon roots, it is debatable whether you can still call it so. Many Canadians would disagree to their country being labeled as essentially 'Anglo-Saxon'.

Anyway, back to subject, yes there are plenty of countries in the world where parents don't have to worry about their children going outside.

However, Japan is really safe from what I hear.
I think the article over-generalises and that the Australian writer has his own agenda. I mean, all of it is based on personal opinion with very little else to make a strong case.

Also, my personal experience is the opposite. My parents allowed me to walk outside by myself in both big-city Toronto and Brisbane with no problems. Many of my friends can attest to the same...
