A time for hard truths


10 years has passed since then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s famous apology for the ‘Stolen Generations.’

While Rudd’s grounds for apology were dubious, and it remains unclear if Indigenous ‘Stolen Generations’ ever occurred, these areas have been previously covered here and here.

Apart from anything else, Rudd’s apology was seen as the ultimate step towards reconciliation between White and Black Australia, and he was universally revered for it. Australians were told upon this proper ‘reconciliation’ we would come together as a unified, colourblind nation, and finally close the gap in health, educational, and lifestyle outcomes between Indigenous Australians and whites.

But 10 years on from a supposedly watershed moment, despite our best intentions, attempts to close the gap are woefully floundering with the Federal government set to achieve just 1 of its 7 core targets.

Considering this lack of success in the face of copious resources and time extended, it appears inadequate to solely blame government inefficiency, or a ‘lack of community consultation.’

Nor can the rise of black armband/ white guilt politics be entirely attributed to said failings.

Nor is this news a reflection of specific political parties, be they Labor, Liberal or the Greens.

Instead, at least of part of the Indigenous disadvantage problem, can be attributed to low average IQ’s, which is linked to civilisational development, poor life outcomes, and obviously, intelligence. As such, it is highly unlikely the gap between Aboriginals and non- Aboriginals will ever completely close.

To some, these remarks are a modern heresy, and they are rarely expressed in mainstream discourse.

Yet no truth however challenging, should ever be ignored.

For if this compulsive commitment to deny hard truths of race and IQ could be broken, we would admit that although past injustices have been committed, and Indigenous people are largely culturally displaced, not all or even most modern Aboriginal issues can be blamed on European colonisation. With that, societal harmony would surely increase, and move away from toxic rhetoric especially observed in pro- black, anti- Australia Day protests observed each year.

Admitting this actuality is also necessary, as to avoid placing exorbitant pressure on Aboriginals. For when dismal progress is subsequently lamented, this places unjust burdens in expecting results which are unrealistic.

Further, with this revolutionary information about race and IQ, we would understand there is nothing worse for Aboriginal employment prospects, than continually importing in millions of high IQ migrants to compete for Australian jobs.

  1. Think western society has a huge amount to learn from the Aboriginals in terms of custody of the earth. There value system us completely- almost diametrically opposed – to western values. However, this does mot mean theirs is inferior. To be able to live off the land as they have done for hundreds of years is worthy of the respect they deserve as Mankind’s oldest inhabitants.

    1. Yeah and I have respect for what they did in their time dominating this continent, no question. This isn’t about bragging about superiority to subjugate Aboriginals or anything of the like, it’s merely a recognition of reality. For if I thought higher IQ tests reflected some sort of widespread and eternal ‘superiority,’ I’d support the replacement of white Australians with the Chinese/ elite Indians, and I am not ok with that whatsoever.

    1. Something the mainstream media ignored at the time of Rudd’s apology in 2008 was that there was an increase in Australia’s homicide rate compared to the year before – a coincidence?

    2. Yeah I’m not sure there’s enough to substantiate a connection between the apology and more homicides, but I’d be happy to consider it upon further evidence and arguments.
