On Australia Day we need to recognise the First Nation. How can we forget that Australia was declared Terra Nullius? Recognition cuts to the heart of what an individual needs to have a sound mind. It is essential for the well-being of our national psyche. To treat the mind we need to address issues of recognition at a personal and individual level. Then Healing can come. To treat our national psyche we need cultural and constitutional recognition for Aboriginal peoples.
Celebrate Australia Day this year by listening to, hearing and recognising Stan Grant’s powerful message, recorded at an IQ2 debate last October, that has gone viral since the video’s release last week: https://www.facebook.com/ethicscentre/videos/1169353876408952/?theater.
