Determining the “disadvantage” of people, acting to reduce the disadvantage …

Comment on Parliamentary committee endorses a First Nations Voice by Paul Parker.

Determining the “disadvantage” of people, acting to reduce the disadvantage does not require a racial test.
The Northern Territory long been a victim of Commonwealth racism, indeed where Commonwealth racial divides make racism in the NT appear normal.
Racism a major activist in history. That history demands our vigilance to prevent repeating damage previously done by racist activist politicians.
Patrick Dodson is yet another activist campaigning to support imposition of racism upon Australians.
Patrick Dodson supports programs which maintain inequality in large areas of Australia.
Patrick Dodson supports programs which determine rights and responsibilities using racial identification in large areas of Australia.
Patrick Dodson supports the segregation of Australians using racial identification, including the racial segregation of Australian families.
Central to all this, and this campaign, is racism, the identification and treatment of Australians differently using racial identification as the measure.
Patrick Dodson is just one member of an activist group in the Commonwealth and other Parliaments who are promoting racism, to divide Australians.
Commonwealth racism imposes qualification of Australian’s equality of legal rights, equality of legal responsibilities and equality of opportunity.
Almost all racists do this to benefit themselves.
Australians rejected racism at Federation.
Australians rejected racism in 1967.
Patrick Dodson with others are promoting racism, promoting treatment of Australians differently using racial identification as their measure.
Is a disappointment that activists who promote racism receive more attention and support than those opposing it.
Politicians show ongoing efforts to divide their electorates into “manageable segments”, each “segment” easily tempted to follow path of division by promises of “special benefits”.
We need to obstruct those racist activists seeking to racially divide us.
History, of the NT and wider, clearly shows accepting racism is pathway to inequality, then to worse, with huge costs born communities and world.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Australians all need actively defend our equal rights, our equal responsibility, our equal accountability if we all are to have equality of opportunity.
Equality of opportunity does not produce equality of results.
Lest We Forget!

Racism is about dividing people into separate groups, identifying them as different due ancestry, social behavior, innate capacities, and other, frequently using these to exclude or include them for “special treatment” whether this by advantage or disadvantage, also to rank then as inferior or superior.
The term “racial discrimination” means any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.
The Commonwealth continues to seriously infect the Northern Territory with its racism.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Jacinta, your response to Erwin Chlanda of Alice Springs News is a great disappointment.
I have know Erwin Chlanda over 40 years, his work and commitment as a journalist is exceptional.
Apologise with grace, or shame yourself further.
IMHO Erwin Chlanda is well overdue for recognition by the NPC.


Horses starve, rotting carcasses near homes
Around Australia corporate or natural persons as land owners, managers or others are prosecuted, found negligent and penalties are applied.
Other than racial prejudice, why are these relevant corporate land-owners (Land Trusts), their relevant corporate property managers (Land Councils), their relevant executive management boards, or other relevant individuals not prosecuted?
Frequently applied is the legal principle that ignorance of the law is no excuse.


News cycle: It’s all over in a day
None may claim surprise, the Commonwealth long conducting “racial profiling” since it took over the Northern Territory from South Australia.

Commonwealth promotion of “racial profiling” and apartheid is easier to recognize in the NT.

Commonwealth cares little for equal legal rights and equal legal responsibility which our Constitution offers all Australians.

Puzzle is why so many content to ignore denial of their equal rights, thus opportunity, for a few silver coins…

As Pastor Martin Niemöller explains it:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


Public may pay for government fake news: Opposition
The Chief Minister Michael Gunner and his government adopting principles of Dr Goebbels [Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister – ED]:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Possible advertising change: “Welcome to the Northern Territory land of big lies.”
Every MLA is part of the NT Government, their is role to draw public attention to serious failings and disgraces.
