The American Temperance movement was a lot more powerful and influential,
AFAIK, than the one in the UK, which, reversing the usual 19th-century
pattern, was an admiring imitator of the American original.  I can't speak
to Australia or NZ.

Gwynne: Australia is the only nation that used alcohol as official currency.
Alcohol also played a part in all three attempted revolutions. Temperance
didn't get much of a foothold.
