What I'm thinking about a why history has put Australia behind a firewall
'The chasm of misunderstanding between the British and the Aboriginals in 1788 was as profound as any that has ever existed between two different peoples' When I was young, I used to imagine that periods of history changed like the switching off and on again of a light switch.

Firewall. The chasm between Brit colonizers and colonized. Interesting.
For thousands of years native Australians lived nomadic life on desert. No farming, no domesticated beasts, no private property no literature, no law or civilization. As a result NO progress. No ambition. Basically apes with boomerangs.
Then Brits came. Hunted them down like animals. Now white Aussie complain. Call them boongs. Why don't they work hard like us. Why are they so different to us.
So author of article is right. Chasm between cultures too great. Not going to bridged for many more generations.
White Australians should just deal natives. Help them out. Have patience and compassion but recognize natives are a lost cause for many more generations.

Mr. Humpert, that is exactly the same thing that white europeans did to native americans , is that not right?
So why did you target australia, when the exact same thing happened in your own backyard? That is, if you're really in the usa.

And also let's not forget that although Native Americans seem to have adapted well and have reason to feel pride, how long has it taken for that process to mature?
Over twice as long as White Australia has existed.
Given a similar length of time our own Aboriginals may yet establish the same status as America's indigenous peoples. The beginnings of that are already surfacing.
Mr 'Humble' is right about one thing ... it may take many more generations.

Thats right. Australia is simply experienceing 'growing pains', when all settles down everything will be okay.
Australia has the potentional to one day be a major player on the world feild. It has a bright future ahead of it. The race problems, and the racist, should realize, its not race that threathens the future of australia, its islam.
