Germaine Greer on rage (Little Books on Big Themes)
Greer has turned the debate on indigenous politics on its head and shows the perversity of many aspects of the Northern Territory Intervention and other contrived government responses. These responses, in their myopic lack of perspective and conveniently whitewashed options, are a perpetuation of so much that is wrong.
It is refreshing that a commentator such as Greer, who is often reported to have lost touch with Australian issues, can nail this problem so neatly. The reader is lifted from what is an otherwise despairing account when Greer identifies a way forward, a shared vision which will nurture hope and ownership, rather than rage.
Thanks to Annette, Tara and J for putting me on to it.
