bridging the gap

    it seems that not much progress is being made in bridging the gap between the aborigines and the rest of australia.

    it is easy to blame the government for not doing enough, even though billions would have been thrown at the problem - it does not look like land rights has done all that much to improve the lot of the aboriginal people.

    one wonders if part of the problem is the people themselves. it might be ok to give people houses in remote communities, but the houses tend to be destroyed. sadly, unless there is meaningful work, the communities will always have problems.

    from memory, the west australian government was going to stop providing services to some remote communities - which is obviously a good move
