Powerful child abusers are a protected species

Louise O’Shea in Red Flag writes that the powerful are protected no matter what they do. Child abuse, whether it be in religious institutions, orphanages, through forced poverty or in immigration detention centres, is acceptable so long as it is carried out by the powerful. Seen in this context, moral panics about protecting children have nothing to do with concern for children. They are rather a cynical pretext for attacks on people‚Äôs rights and the demonising of minorities.
