The State Is Amoral
I am not a one who believes in 'historical apologies' because they are usually done for the basest of political reasons to pander and secure votes from minorities.
However the apology from Kevin Rudd this morning in Australia was timely as the
practice of child trafficking by the State was going on as late as 1970, and its victims are still alive. We are not going to get the same apology from Brown until nearer the Election to show how 'compassionate' he is. A joint apology by both Australia and Britain would have been more appropriate.
It has taken the Child Migration Trust twenty two years to force this situation. The Churches,Orphanages and the State were all complicit in this crime. If you ever need an example of the State being amoral and never to be trusted, this is one.
