Comment on First Nations want a ‘Voice’ enshrined in the constitution by Paul Parker.

Some Australians support, promote and practice racism.
Most Australians support, promote and practice equality of opportunity, equality of rights and equality of responsibility.
Policies of racist’s usually about benefit for themselves based upon who their ancestors were.
Racist approaches to resolving past differences similar to various fundamentalists like the Taliban/ISIS.
Australians at Federation, then again in 1967 voted for equality of opportunity, equality of rights, equality of responsibilities, all these to be without racial testing of Australians.
Compensation for past racism, does not require racism continue.
The Uluru meeting IMHO is more about ensuring ongoing racism, by trickery upon Australian’s Constitution, thus is to be rejected.
The ongoing failures to thrive in communities is due the focus upon, the decisions to operate with, racist approaches.
Many communities still need change to reject their use of racist approaches, stop hiding behind racist legislation.
This particularly for communities with the label “Indigenous”, for they are disadvantaged by such.
Many communities in the NT have control over what they can do, yet fail to accept their own responsibility to improve things for themselves.
Those who apply self-help, accept responsibility for what they achieve, and where they fail to achieve, can do better.
Constantly blaming others, particularly historical events, for what is or what happens today, discourages support.
Equality of opportunity does not guarantee equality of results, though to deny equality of opportunity ensures failures.

Independents now ineffective?
To suggest a potential candidate is “no longer allowable to run as a party associated independent” appears breach principles of democracy in elections.
Such restricting claims upon candidates and elected representatives need be resolved by the High Court.
Candidates stand as natural persons, chosen by voters where they stand for election.
Why each candidate obtains voter preferences is a matter for each voter to decide.
Individual candidates when elected retain right to change their mind, their political affiliations, whenever they wish.
Elected members are judged by their voters at each election, not by others they may or may not be associate with.

The ‘ABC’ acronym apparently stands for Apartheid Building Corporation, reflecting its long term support and promotion of racial separatism with inequality of opportunity.

Alcohol floor price may breach Australian Constitution

“When you have a 40,000 year old culture of sharing everything, then it perfectly acceptable for 10 mates to chip in fifty bucks each to buy a bottle of rum!”
Culture is not fixed.
Culture is about acceptable behavior, sharing is part of every culture.
Each culture applies measures which reflect their environment, each adapts to suit their environment, their physical and social survival.
Culture is slow to change, yet each culture experiences ongoing change, ongoing adaptation.
Failing to recognize, to understand, limitations and changes within each cultural group demonstrates ignorance or disrespect.
Every generation re-writes what is culturally acceptable to them.


Council shoots Anzac precinct gallery down in flames
I congratulate the councillors for their demonstrated commitment to principles, to what is best for their community, and with support from the community.
With inadequate public information, such rejection is the best decision for government.
Good government for good decisions requires full, open, lengthy and public discussions of issues long before decisions to be made.
For far too long various NT governments have regularly demonstrated their lack of this ability.
Voters in the NT need ensure each MLA understands clearly they are elected, or rejected, by their electorate, not their party.
