While I'm glad Rudd said Sorry...
I hope it doesn't create a wave of people getting paid out - that's just as much inequality as what happened in the first place. See Penn & Teller - Bullsh!t: Reparations. Disagree? Post a damn comment, I'm sure nobody reads this blog anyway, so I couldn't be offending anyone regardless.

I'm reading your blog.

We compensate a lot of others

So it's okay to pay out millions to farmers who gambled wrong. It's okay to pay Mitsubishi to keep a few votes in marginal seats. It's okay to pay victims of crime and terrorism.

But when we clearly messed up, ruined lives out of a misguided and racist policy, those people aren't entitled to compensation?

Re: We compensate a lot of others

No, no, no, and finally, no.

I could reply to this and explain myself a bit better here, but it would probably be more productive in a full blog post.

So, stay tuned.
