Description

Since the 1970s, Australia has been conducting a utopian socialist experiment with the lives of a generation of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in remote Australia. Helen Hughes and Jenness Warin argue that the resulting deprivation and misery of remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities can no longer be tolerated by wider Australia. New policies for individual property rights, health, education, housing and employment must ensure equality of opportunity with other Australians and decent living standards.
