Superiority complex at the heart of elite activism

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


The defeat of the Voice Referendum is no reason to rejoice, but rather a time for reflection. Indigenous communities need the government to focus on providing support that suits their circumstances, rather than a Canberra-based bureaucracy that makes representations on behalf of people who already have representatives. This view was supported by a majority of Australians at the referendum. Regrettably, however, many supporters of the ‘Yes’ campaign have since decided to double down on their failed policy stance, suggesting that elite activists believe they know better than Australian voters.
