Comment on Bleak tunnel vision in new book on Alice Springs by Evelyne roullet.

This a true story because it involved my family who was repatriated to France on the 31st.
1. They left Adelaide for Perth.
2. Their luggage was loaded onto a flight to Doha (no quarantine) and then onto to a flight to Paris.
4. Loaded straight away to a train bound to Nice (no check-up, no quarantine).
5. Nice to Toulon, two hours drive, picked up by family to drive to Saint Mandrier-sur-mer (no quarantine).

Alcohol-fuelled’ violence not caused by alcohol but by macho culture.
Countries such as Iceland consume more alcohol than Australia but report less violence.
The reality is the men who commit these unspeakable acts are attempting to compensate for their emotional fragility by exerting their physical dominance.
Efforts to address the attitudes and behaviours that lead to violence against women must commence at an early age.
Be it in the home or the classroom, the macho culture for too long drummed into Australian boys from the earliest of ages must stop.
The way to tackle the real underlying causes of anti-social behaviour is to address the cultural reinforcers of violence, misogyny, and aggressive masculinity in all its cultural expressions from schoolyards to sports fields, politics and pubs, movies and media.
