For Like minded people who like to see-
The Leader of the State Opposition in South Australia has only now waded into the “rotten culture of power” that is FamiliesSA on the Liberal’s website. To gain a better explanation of why the Report to Parliament exposed this rotten Department it is necessary to understand why it is so.
Firstly, it is well known, that many in positions of power take up such positions, not because of a noble purpose or “someone has to do it” but because it is seen as the pinnacle of a neurotic need to exercise power over others. Clear indications of insecurity and fear of the loss of control and thereby credibility. These people are indeed, frightened and insecure and very lonely.
Their quite awful sense of vulnerability is a disease of the psyche, marked by a dark smouldering misery that is treated with more doses of power that manifests itself in anger clouding the sense, rough indecisions, a comfort zone of a larger staff to take the heat and lots of Darjeeling.
The telephone directory listing for FamiliesSA explains a great deal.
Why have over 2000 children been removed and split up into State care with such an appalling record of abuse and damage while in such care? If this be a question, just about part of the 2500 that remain unanswered in the Parliament, then it is clear why it is ignored.
I will never forget the Minister’s response to the death of the little 9 yr 0ld boy from neglect of drug addict parents while under the watch of FamiliesSA or the children separated on Xmas Eve while the Minister, on 3 months holiday on full pay “examines the paperwork”.
