Ninglun on Australia's Aborigines

Neil, Ninglun, has continued our on-line dialogue about Australia's indigenous people.

While Neil and I often end up at the same point, there are differences in perspective between us that mean that the starting point, the question posed, and the subsequent thought paths are sometimes different.

I will respond properly to Neil's post, continuing to draw out some of the conclusions I have reached, the questions posed, the thought path. Part of my argument remains that official policy often implemented with the best will in the world has failed and that we need to stand outside the box to find new ways.

In the meantime, I commend Neil's continuing posts even where I disagree with them.
