Australia is the government child stealing capital of the world. Australian government child protection departments' have stolen more children per head of population than any other western nation. That is not a title to be proud of - it is one of great shame.
Sadly our governments have failed to learn the painful and destructive lessons of the past, and have escalated the rate of child stealing in the last decade on the ludicrous premise that it is better to take a child on an unregistered caseworkers opinion - because they might suffer a risk of harm at some time in the future if left with family; whilst at the same time failing to acknowledge the far greater evidenced harm to children forcibly removed and placed in care that has damaging lifelong consequences both for the child and their family.
While the Federal Government keeps apologising to one stolen generation after another, and acknowledges time and time again the harm state governments have inflicted on vulnerable children and their families for decades caused by the failures of the state child protection systems, nothing has changed. This is because there is too much power and no accountability in this corrupt industry. Child stealing by governments always has and always will be a total failure as governments are evidenced to be the worst parents of all.
