I have several good friends in Australia, and loved this article. It is pretty heinous how the indigenous peoples who were there first were treated by others coming, but it's the same story in the Americas, most of Africa, and anywhere that someone with power chooses to lord it over those who don't. I find Aussies refreshingly honest when talking to them. Thanks for this!
