Comment on No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Alex Nelson, Posted August 12, 2018 at 8:56 am: Maybe the time has come to copy the Chinese: The Mandate of Heaven = The right to rule and the right of rebellion.
It is a old Chinese political and religious doctrine used since ancient times to justify the rule of the King or Emperor of China.
According to this belief, heaven which embodies the natural order and will of the universe—bestows the mandate on a just ruler.
“The people are of supreme importance in a nation, the spirits of the land and grain are the next; the ruler is the least. That is why he who gains the confidence of the multitudinous people will be Emperor (ruler)… ” — Mencius
Throughout Chinese history, times of poverty and natural disasters were often taken as signs that heaven considered the incumbent ruler unjust and thus in need of replacement.
“Democracy is the speculation, that the stupidity of the masses will be less dangerous than the irresponsibility of the elites”.

‘Lost’ man survived on bushfood banquet
Was he really lost? Or was it a demonstration of Aboriginal superiority in skill and knowledge of this land?
No supermarket, no Google, no GPS etc. How many Australians know what is a soakage? And especially make one?
Soakages were once a dependable and important water source for Australian Aboriginal people and although many are dried or contaminated now, they can still be found across the deserts.
Those skills should be taught in all our schools as survival is more important than money.
In case of national disaster, I put my life in Aboriginal hands rather that in our governments’.


Drowning in bad news stories? Try this.
Congratulations.


Missing man found safe and well after 17 days
Police said they will interview Morton once he has recovered to learn more about his 17-day disappearance, including how he was able to survive in the extreme conditions. ???
The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.
