Letter to The Editor - The role of globalist interests and foreign powers in weakening national governments
To The Australian Daniel Wild has produced a sensible proposal to achieve real aid for our Aboriginal people ("No call to heed a divisive voice", 23/8); but he avoids mentioning certain political realities. He espouses decentralisation and "the individual and his or her property rights", but one strand of the misguided campaign for indigenous constitutional recognition is the activism of Marxist zealots who want a utopia based on centralisation and increased government control of citizens. Secondly, Wild ignores a major reason "why welfare doesn't appear to be working": the different nature of the Aboriginal people. In some respects their ability levels are lower than those of other Australians. Reasonable reform should not ignore this factor. Finally, there is the role of globalist interests and foreign powers in weakening national governments by fomenting discord between majority and minority ethnic groups. Neither the UNO nor China may be friends of Australia in this context.
