Task Force in Australian Aboriginal Communities

Aboriginal Life in Australia – Tropic of Capricorn – BBC Travel

This Youtube video is taken from a longer BBC travel video titled “Aboriginal Life in Australia – Tropic of Capricorn”.

The video discusses an army task force that is going into the Australian Aboriginal communities, banning alcohol consumption and pornography and even forcing the people in these communities to spend their resources in certain ways.

My impression is that this is the Western community imposing western ideals and values on the Australian Aboriginal communities. Is this right? What are your thoughts? Is it OK so long as it is in the name of reducing poverty?
