Not done Sir, but doing.

Plenty is doing.

"Today the vast majority of northern Aborigines [which includes most Aborigines having full Aboriginal descent] are effectively unemployed. But Government unemployment benefits are quite generous. What do you do when you have nothing to do but are given substantial amounts of money? In any society surely the answer is drink, smoke and gamble, and the daily lives of thousands of northern Aborigines are spent doing little else. Drunkenness abounds, especially in the towns, and not only afflicts men but also women, teenagers and even children. Health is inevitably poor.... An increasing number of Aboriginal councils outside the towns are putting a ban on alcohol in their communities.... Perhaps the establishment of self-determining homelands would help. Certainly the future of neighbouring Papua New Guineans, despite their terrible current social problems, seems much brighter, because of their rights of self-determination."
