    Kenn, great topic! Honestly, its what we should be really discussing! What conquered culture did we derive this benefit from? Isn't colonialism wonderful?

    I believe that would be Tatooine or perhaps San Diego but either way...
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I do not find any of them attractive because they are probably not Primal.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    While I appreciate your point, they are all more attractive than pointless back and forth about who screwed who colonially and whether current populations should be held accountable for their own actions.

    I recently got into an argument with a friend of mine whose (now deceased) husband is native. My argument was that if we let them not pay taxes and give them their own land then we should take all of our technology back.
    If they want things to be as they were before we got here then they can have them EXACTLY that way.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    While I am usually from the "You got conquered, uh, sorry..." school of thought I have to disagree. You can't take someone's land, stick them on a reservation, limit their economic opportunities and then say "There just like it was before!" because it isn't. GFTO, give them their land back along with all the forest/animals/whatever, stop interfering and then perhaps your argument holds weight.

    *obviously the reservations thing applies to the US. I have no idea how you all do it up in the Maritimes. It involves goats I have been lead to believe

    They get free land, free electricity, huge discounts on anything they buy and pay a reduced rate for secondary education.

    I was being sarcastic.

    Why do people still take me seriously?

    It's hard to read inflection on the internet plus it was 6am. I am lucky I can read at all at the time
