On Australia’s founding lie. Spoiler alert: It’s that Aboriginal Australians were exclusively hunter-gatherers, and didn’t perform activities like farming, irrigation, or the building of permanent structures.

There’ve been rumbles about this for years, but the viciousness of the right-wing culture warriors has meant it’s never really gained ground.
