Corruption is a form of corrosion, corrosion or corrupted spirit/energy within is as a disease, a virus, that spreads or not throughout the system within and infected, affecting those around. When the inner sheath has been torn, ripped, traumatised, its as if like the vacuum in a pressurised cabin has been breached, and an opening within the inner psyche—spiritual immune system—is disabled, damage. The corruption and corrosive disease I speak of is like the wind, we see its effects and the damage chaotic winds can produce, but we never see the wind … evil is like the wind of darkness, viral bacteria to the spirit/soul, integrity of the individual … the Aboriginal people I grew with have their word for evil/bad… mamu!
And if they recognised as such way back when, then why the heck do moderners think/believe that such “evil” no longer exists? We live in a corrupt system, paradigm … and many many are “diseased” and “corrupted” by such environmental association and other “carriers”, just like a disease or pandemic.
Anyone claiming or identifying as Aboriginal should at least learn the difference between Sovereignty rights & so-called Reconciliation and/or Recognition … and if you don’t know the fundamental differences and its impact on the future standing of Aborigines in this country … then STFU, and stop following what’s trendy… there are a lot of “5 Star blacks” (coconuts) working with the Govt agenda to dis-empower the Aboriginal nations even further … to be “white-washed” and assimilated once and for all under the current goal of Constitutional recognition … read and learn people, or just move on and forget Aboriginal world and culture …

I often find it shamefully amusing, whenever I hear non-Aboriginals tell others of different ethnicity/race to “go back to where they come from” or “if you don’t like it, you can leave!” … hmm … and where do they actually originate from, how did they come to be in Australia? Again, that so-called convenient memory-loss they seem to suffer when it suits them or their motives.
So-called “indigenous recognition” is just another political ploy—a route to assimilation and equalising of the cultures and minimising any chance of acknowledgement of Sovereignty of the Aboriginals of Australia … and of course putting the matter of the illegality of the Colonial take-over in the 1st place to rest, without consultative Treaties being in place. Aboriginal rights and legitimacy will be “dead in the water”— finally “white-washed” and watered-down, as are many so-called “Aboriginals” these days.

Though often referred to as a religion, the Dreaming is much more than a collection of metaphysical concepts and moral prohibitions. It is the spiritual beacon which provides the societal and personal guiding light to every Original soul and tribe. The Dreaming’s genesis is a time before time began, when the Earth was soft. In this eternity dwell the Creation Spirits who gave form to this unformed reality. But the Original understanding of chronology is not that of naive Western science, and the Dreaming is not a period of formation that is now over but one that is infinite. Indeed, one term for the Dreamtime, Alcheringa, has been translated as –to see things eternal. It is obvious that, in trying to come to grips with the ineffable, words can only get us so far. However, to some extent we can say that the Dreamtime is a place, a time and a vision. One which is all place, all time, it is a dimension of reality which creates and sustains and provides purpose and meaning. Yet in the Original paradigm, this highly mystical concept is thoroughly grounded, for the Creation Spirits manifest through the land which shares this eternal reality. Every person and place in the continent is embraced by these beings (or we might say, this Being). The Creation Spirits determined all personal and tribal identity, relationships of respect and the ways of communicating them, the relationship with non-human species and the land, initiation ceremonies, cosmological tales and every other aspect of life (and death) imbued with deep meaning. These form an eternal circle whose source is the Dreaming. The integrity of the Original spiritual paradigm is guaranteed in perpetuity because of its comprehensive nature; one which is untainted by the materialist and competitive influences of the degenerate societies which have replaced a similar vision. That vision was, doubtless, once worldwide (and as we shall see, was probably initially exported from Australia). Whatever true spirituality exists in the world only does so in so far as it retains some essence of this original teaching and taps into the vision behind it.

The result of a long campaign by those who wished to establish a colony according to the principles of systematic colonisation, the South Australia Act of 1834 empowered the King to erect South Australia into one or more British Provinces, and to provide for its colonisation and government. The preamble to the Act included a description of the lands on which such Provinces were to be erected as ‘waste and unoccupied Lands, which are supposed to be fit for the Purposes of Colonization’.
A period of intense negotiation followed between those planning to establish the Province of South Australia and the Colonial Office, which administered Britain’s colonies. One of the topics under discussion was provisions for the Aboriginal inhabitants, particularly in relation to their proprietary rights to land, rights which those in the Colonial Office believed were beyond dispute. The Colonization Commissioners, seeking to establish the Province, disputed that such rights would be found to exist, believing that Aboriginal people did not ‘occupy’ the land in a way that would be recognised by British institutions.
Negotiations between the Commissioners and the Colonial Office continued. Finally, when the Letters Patent establishing the Province were signed on 19 February, 1836, they included the clause:
Provided always, that nothing in these our letters patent contained shall affect or be construed to affect the rights of any Aboriginal Natives of the said Province to the actual occupation or enjoyment in their own Persons or in the Persons of their Descendants of any Lands therein now actually occupied or enjoyed by such Natives.
The first of the South Australian Company’s ships, the John Pirie, set sail for South Australia just three days later.
In 1838 the South Australia Act was amended, and wording conforming to (and referring to) the Letters Patent was inserted.
Colonisation of the new province of South Australia proceeded with little regard for the words of the Letters Patent relating to Aboriginal rights to land. In 2011, the Letters Patent are again the source of discussion and controversy as the significance and legal meaning of the document are debated.

original title: Warren Mundine: The white sheep of the family? by Dr Gary Foley
Warren Mundine’s new “bromance” with Tony Abbott has surprised some, but not Dr Gary Foley, who has watched Mundine steadily tread a path to the Right for years.
Tony Abbott and Warren Mundine: a “bromance” between “kindred spirits”?
It would seem at the present time that the former National President of the ALP, Mr Warren Mundine, has momentarily eclipsed the Cape York Crusader Noel Pearson as the Aboriginal Man of the Moment.
Whilst Mr Mundine may lack the intellectual firepower of Noel Pearson, he has nevertheless elbowed his way to the front of the pack with his dazzling late-life conversion to the cause of all things Tony Abbott. Mundine’s strategic realignment to become best buddies with Abbott at the beginning of the 2013 federal election campaign may have been a surprise to some, but only those who have not been taking notice of Mundine’s mundane comments on Aboriginal matters over the past few decades.
It is therefore instructive to recall Warren’s political trajectory over the long term if we are to begin to try and make sense of the political stance he has arrived at today. We must do this if we are to ascertain when Warren is driven by pure political opportunism alone, or whether there is some internal logic and rationale to his strange political path over the years. After all, here is a man who emerged from a respected Aboriginal family on the north coast of NSW; a family who collectively over many decades have been honourably involved in the struggle for justice for our people.
At his stage I should declare my interests and advise the reader that Warren is a distant relative of mine, and that this has tempered this article to the extent that I am treading cautiously in an attempt to not offend too many members of my extended family. At the same time I believe that it is important for Aboriginal people to subject Aboriginal leaders in positions of power and influence to a level of scrutiny that a biased and ignorant mainstream media often fails to, so readers need to be aware of the tightrope I walk as I write this article. Having stated that disclaimer, I would also point out that I have long referred to Warren as the “white sheep of our family” without seeming to upset too many relatives.
