Hi Diver Dan,

There's been only one case of 'stolen' which has been proven. Every person taken into care, for whatever reason, would have a file, so that they can find that from their State Archives, it's not difficult, and take it to court.

Yeah, I've been trying to understand the Indigenous situation and response for a very long time, and around thirty or more years ago, I got interested in what they call patron-client systems. There's s lot about it on Google Scholar.

Recently, I've gone back and looked at the theories about rentier states, rentier economies, rentier societies. They make a lot of sense in the context of Aboriginal issues.

Still working on it.

Joe

I don't know why they wanted Special Recognition. The Constitution recognizes all Australians & that includes, as of 1967, Aboriginals. So there is no need for Special Recognition.

Jayb, its all a diversion to take focus away from the real truth, that being that no matter how many billions we pour into this sector, little to no real progress will be made.

Its a case of the old saying, 'you can lead a horse to water, but you can not make it drink'. But hey, Rudd in all his wisdom apologised so all will be right now, right, pull the other one. Forever the victim.
