Never stop making the connections between sexism, racism, militarism, nationalism and all forms of violence.

We watched Australia tonight. Set during WWII, the story was about the "lost generations"--the half aboriginal, half white children who didn't fit in either world. The wisdom of the day required that these children be taken from their mothers (the mother was always the aboriginal) and placed in a missionary school where they could be trained to become servants in white households.We wouldn't think of doing such a thing today, but this program didn't end until 1973. Heck...I was barely out of high school then. It's not so long ago when you are talking about human rights.
How many isms aren't listed above? How many are we not even yet aware of? How many of them am I--I who am subjected to the downwind end of several of these--not aware of? I wonder...will we learn?
