Yesterday the current Australian Prime Minister (President) John Howard announced he's going to send in troops to Aboriginal communities in Australia to force health checks on Aboriginal children.
That frightens me and I'm white.
The government has the authority to remove any child from its parents if there's enough pieces of paper generated to say that child is in danger.
From there it's not that far to another Stolen Generation.
Whitefellas, think about it from your own self-interest: What would another Stolen Generation do to our international reputation?
We'd be fucking pariahs. Every time we said something reasonable even grubby little dictatorships could whisper behind their hands about us. Tourists would go somewhere else instead of bringing their money here. People in countries we visit would turn away from us in the streets.
141 days to the next election.
