How ? Why ? Its the usual government stuff; steal land, ruin it to make short term money, suppress people in the way - usual story. Australia is no different ... Oh, we try to make it look good from the outside, but dont forget, this is a country that STILL locks up children ( refugees already suffering trauma , shock and mental health issues ) behind razor wire , exports uranium, etc. etc .Thanks for the recommendation! I spent some time to finish the whole movie of Utopia and is quite shocked.
How can the government be brazenly lying about the situation?
Why systematic abuses still happen?

Nope ! There are MANY more. Living a fulfilled happy and satisfied life, IMO is very important. That can be achieved with minimal technology.We should see how residential schools failed.
Some people previously asked "why the Australian First People were so technologically backwards"?
Then, is technology the only aspect of humanity?
And things that would take mammoth organization, mobility, machinery, monitoring and technology, nowadays, where achieved in Australia, per-colonial times, without modern technology ( eg 'The Great Estate' concept ; numerous writers and painters depicted the first discovered landscapes as 'Park like' - considering back then, there where NO National Parks or real public parks , what they where comparing the countryside to was a park estate of a rich person - 'landed gentry' that they where familiar with . Landscaped, gardened, wide open areas of grass, scattered trees, lanes, stocked with hunting game and inter spaced with fields of herbage and grain. ... ALL over the country .
Well, they adopt well, if they are bought up in it, they are just as capable as anyone else. But you have to be bought up in it. The early formative years are VERY important in embedding specific cultural templates.We assumed industrial civilization during the years of residential school, and these people neither fit in their own culture nor the industrial civilization.
The Chinese fable is 邯郸学步 (learning the walking style of the City of Hangdan); in the fable, a child attempted to learn the walking style of the City of Hangdan; he failed to adopt the new style and forgot how to walk altogether.
In the residential school, the students failed to adopt to both cultures.
In the realistic setting, the old culture is quite moribund; how should these people adopt to the Information Culture?
Just get a kid that is used to being indoors, watching tv and playing computer games and stick them in the country for a few days and take away their technology .... they have a near break down ! And sometimes that is what they HAVE to do ... break them down first to rebuild them !
