Rethinking Indigenous Policy

"Last year’s “Voice” debate brought into sharp focus the difference between Labor’s ideology and liberal philosophy. Liberalism embraces a few big ideas and lets the ideas’ natural power improve society from the ground up. Labor’s approach is to promote myriad small solutions from the top down, applying them with a paternalist mindset that tries to bend nature to fit Labor’s ideology. This mindset led to the fatally flawed “Voice,” which was a national top-down solution to issues that are fundamentally local."
