Once again, national 'sorry' day has passed, where pious public servants and media stooges bemoan the 'stealing' of aboriginal children from families because they were aboriginal.
Didn't happen of course. There was no government policy to do anything like this.
Sure governments have a track record of doing bad things, but this ain't one of them.
In fact, I am sorry.
I am sorry we didn't rescue more children from the stone age culture of child abuse, woman bashing, rape and assault that left them and still leaves them scared and disadvantaged for life.
Governments and missions might have not done as well as we would expect today (opps, hang on, governments still fail to protect the weak and the taxpayer), but they are the only ones who stood up for these children.
