Comment on Do these two people live in the same country? by Paul Parker.

[****Correction to my earlier comment awaiting moderation.]

Few people disagree some people do need their income managed – partly or fully, to ensure they maintain a roof over their head, and provide them money each week for food.

People go to welfare about this out of desperation, not desire.

The Commonwealth claims Australians’ identification of themselves with any of Australia’s many racial-sub-cultural groups is their valid measure to determine assistance.

IMHO (“in my honest opinion”) most Australians strongly disagree.

IMHO most feel Australians need protection from government assistance, particularly when racism is used as a tool.

IMHO most Australians do trust our Courts in making these decisions, as their state welfare authorities MUST PROVE THEIR CASE for each intrusive management to be imposed upon the citizens thus denying their civil liberties.

Courts can require privacy of parties to be protected, whilst allowing relevant facts be published. We no longer see enough reporting, so not enough public discussion of issues which are raised in courts. Result is less effective, less responsive legislation.

Paul Parker Also Commented

Do these two people live in the same country?
Our politicians and governments refuse to accept Constitutional restriction on their ability to qualify the rights or responsibilities of Australians using race as their measure.
Commonwealth “NT Intervention” problems continue earlier Commonwealth mass-treatment applied by racial measurement.
Commonwealth obstructs relevant judicial determination processes.
Commonwealth claims it held no Constitutional authority to qualify rights and responsibilities on basis of race, yet it busily did and continues to do so.
Today’s problems result from earlier racial discrimination.
Australian’s Constitution sort to outlaw ALL legislation which qualified Australians rights or responsibilities using racial measurements.
Yet many opposing Commonwealth “NT Intervention” act with concerns for their preferred flavor of racism, not eliminating racism.
The Commonwealth Attorney-General advised Parliament Australia has NO racial tests.
Yet the Commonwealth supports, promotes and practices racism using racial measures.


Do these two people live in the same country?
Two faces of racism, are NOT the only views.
Jenny Macklin maintains Commonwealth claim for 67 years it lacked authority to assist whilst at same time they practiced apartheid.
Richard Downs and others believe they advantaged from Commonwealth apartheid policies.
Hundreds of millions of public money spent perhaps could have achieved more if just given as compensation to all the intended beneficiaries of these programs.
Recipients made wealthy who then wasted it could at least look in their mirrors to see whom to blame.
Past 44 years Commonwealth busily promoted segregationist programs.
Schooling is about attending school, with nothing to do with racial identification.
Took government to make attendance a racial issue, then being government they wasted more public money.
Bilingual education was about teaching people to read, using words they understood, whilst also teaching them to speak English, the language of modern Australia.
People remain – in civilized societies – free to study any languages they like, as long as they have the basics needed to live in the wider Australian community.
Bilingual Education was NOT about expanding languages from our past to incorporate explanations of modern science, medicine, technology or quantum mechanics.
The Commonwealth Attorney-General told Parliament NO racial tests exist in Australia.
Yet Commonwealth racist actions include on almost every Australian a form our Commonwealth’s racial test.
Coldly, deliberately, refusing to all a chance to “decline to answer” questions to do with their racial identification. Any those who do not answer are then deemed to have answered NOT.
Why is our answer “Australian” NOT acceptable?
Such is the approach of our racists.
The Commonwealth promotes, supports and imposes also segregation upon families based on racial testing.
Proposed Commonwealth Constitutional proposal is NOT about helping people to fix past wrongs – have already wasted billions doing this.
Proposed Commonwealth Constitutional proposal is to widen up ability of Commonwealth to claim it has Constitutional authority and power to discriminate between Australians using racial identification as the measure.
Commonwealth denies legal support – when required by the Courts, to those who challenge this purported existing authority.
Australians at Federation, then again in 1967, overwhelmingly voted to extinguish, to eliminate, stop ALL racial discrimination between Australians, not widen opportunities for their Commonwealth to practice same.

“Apartheid refers to a political system where people are clearly divided based on race, gender, class or other such factors.” Evelyne Roullet
By this the NT has always been, and remains, an apartheid state.
To resolve this we need to recognise the clear blame is resting with the Commonwealth.
The majority of Australians who created our Commonwealth sought NO “racial discrimination” between Australians.
Australians particularly were concerned about legislation imposing such upon Australians.
“Aboriginal” appeared in our Constitution to resolve then unknown numbers of potential voters “traditionally” roaming away from, outside, the wider Australian community.
The Commonwealth’s ongoing maintenance, and promotion, of racism upon Australians creates or maintains the problems.
Only elimination of racism in legislation will resolve the problems, removing opportunities to practice racism.

It remains the responsibility of licensees what happens within their premises, to ensure compliance with requirements set out in the legislation.
If Licensees find to difficult to check proper ID to avoid serving those on the BDR, they need provide better staff training.
If their own staff experience difficulty with unlawful purchase events they need then call police for assistance.
If licensees are not able to avoid serving banned persons alcohol, they need be temporarily closed until they can.


What will our cultural celebrations look like in a generation?
It is disappointing Professor Rolf Gerritsen neglects to mention when those colonial self-governing states all joined together to become the self-governing, independent nation of Australia.
Our Commonwealth of Australia commenced on January 1st, 1901.
The historical events of 26 January shall remain important historical events, however we each care remember.
Australians decided their own important January 1st independent nation events were NOT to start before noon (Sydney time) to ensure everyone “recovered” from celebration of New Years Eve, so all are well enough to attend our nationally important noon event of swearing in Ministers for our first Commonwealth government.
Such timing suits our national reputation on priorities:
1 January, Commonwealth Federation Day.
So move 26 January holiday to 2nd January and call it Australia Recovery Day.


What REALLY goes on in our streets: Youth worker
There is little need to change the criminal code.
There already exists a process used to determine whether parental responsibility is failing or working, and what needs to be done.
Even the best of parents may find themselves in court with their children following a single act of youthful irresponsibility.
Any parent can find themselves with youths no longer prepared to follow their reasonable instructions.
The need is for clearer policy dealing with parents who are irresponsible, and more assistance for responsible parents before they become a minority.
The need is for the responsible “Docs” department aka “Territory Families” with Minister Dale Wakefield and CEO Ken Davies to start attending public meetings with media present in Alice Springs to answer questions then respond to address raised issues, on how these problems are being addressed.
Clearly the NT has become an apartheid state, where the rights, responsibility and accountability of residents appears first determined by racial tags.
Racial tags are the responsibility problem, so not part of the solution.


NT road sealing costs threat to Outback Way?
Perhaps a major contributing cost to the deplorable condition of the existing road between Yulara and the border is that it is NOT part of the public highway.
The Commonwealth’s land rights act needs be amended to enable the NT Government reclaim land required for public roads, the same as other states, with just compensation determined and paid.
It is financial and political irresponsibility for NTG to pay for construction of privately owned roads and housing.
The failure of the Commonwealth to enable such resumptions contributes significantly to deplorable conditions.
These wealthy private corporate landlords need spend their own money, not milk public funds.
The failure to eliminate such a rort contributes to the Commonwealth’s reputation as a government committed to promoting racism and inequality.
