    If the biggest thing you have to rage about is indigenous people getting some aid money in exchange for "here, sorry, we completely destroyed your people and way of life, we'll feel bad if we leave you in TOTAL poverty..", then think about how good you have it in life.
    Of course that is false. The Australian people, by their labor and creativity have built a modern and successful society upon land which was largely vacant before. The aboriginal people retain their way of life--as miserable as it is. If you think they are being mistreated, it is only because you, and they, romanticize their prior existence-- without medicine, soap, bathing or bathroom facilities, or modern tools, clothing etc. Objectively they are far better than before.

    You know, since they retained their way of life for far longer than Western civilization has existed, it stands to reason that if they really desperately needed "bathroom facilities", they would have invented those.

    That is, if one has any reason for something to stand to...

    No, objectively they are better off wth medicine than without. They are better off with moden fabrics rather than having their women chew leather to make it soft. Objectively, they are better with horses and motor vehicles than without. With soap and clean water than without. With steel tools than without. Etc.

    There are more conveniences today than in the past, true.

    What would that have to do with saying "so it's good the Jews endured the holocaust, they have it better today"? That's what you're doing.

    Not at all. You have repeatedly complained that whites took away their "way of life". It is largely the conveniences which have altered their way of life. Even the horse, the rifle and metal knives are white conveniences.

    Sure if you rule out disease, violence, warfare, forced removal from land, and generations of intentionally restrictive or genocidal policies and forced cultural assimilation and boarding schools to break use of language and culture... sure, the only thing that changed whatsoever is they got some modern conveniences.

    Re: Colonialism = Slavery

    I hear this kind of bitching about aboriginal people in Canada: "Seriously, we're flying jet planes and they whine about wanting to 'keep their way of life' and do what? Live in a teepee?"

    Well, no.

    When white people came to canada and cree people were living in teepees, the white settlers in the west were often living in caves made of sod. What has been missing is the equality necessary for aboriginal cultures to let their traditional way of life develop in the same way that settlers let their traditional way of life develop. Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton represent the modern expression of the traditional colonial way of life. If aboriginal cultures had not been contained and confined in reserves* those cities would be subtly different nowadays, and I would argue, stronger for it.

    I'd argue the same would be true of Australian civic life, and American, and Brazilian, and Chinese, and Russian, etc.

    (*no exaggeration - at one point you needed a passport-like ID document to leave the reserve.)
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    No, I was addressing the complaint that their way of life has been taken. Comparing what they have with what they had before, the change to their way of life is largely a vast superiority of material things and conveniences. Things that happened in the past are in the past.

    This is a no win discussion. The Native Peoples are entitled to maintain the lifestyle they cherish. Strange as it may seem to us. If they happen to be situated on oil sands, well, we put them there didn't we?

    Similarly, if we truly had National Parks we would close them to intrusion. Elsewise they only preserve our induced change.

    The real question is whether they are better off with the changes. They did not realize how much they needed horses until they got them. And no, if they had realized how unhappy they were without the horse they could not have "come up with them". They needed cloth so as not to have to chew leather. They needed steel knives and tools, but in thousands of years of history did not come up with them. Were they unhappy without medicines? Yes, I am sure, when they were sick they were unhappy, but did not "come up with" them.

    That is your opinion, it's pretty clear from your statements in this thread that you really aren't much of an expert of anything, least of all this topic, so I'm not sure why you keep repeating it as if it becomes more valid through the repetition.

    And he has a proponent of Eugenics who defended the WWII dictators as his avatar.

    Re: Colonialism = Slavery

    The Native Americans eagerly adopted many of the material conveniences when they became available. Whites did not force them to adopt horses, rifles, steel weapons and tools, medicines, cloth, etc. They were often the objects of theft, so desireable were they. Horses alone brought about the biggest change of their "way of life" in their entire history of many thousands of years.

    I do not join them because I was otherwise raised. But I recognize the necessity of preserving their heritage.

    You are not the one who decides what a subjugated people whose roots have been destroyed should feel about its current situation. Also, you have no idea what living conditions they face, or how little the law cares about them. Your posts are revisionist, arrogant to the extreme, and overall quite appalling.

    Of course not. Indigenous people around the world were quite capable of making decisions about which tools enhanced their way of life or were welcome additions. However, YOU are the only one claiming that "the only difference between then and now is their life has been changed by modern conveniences."

    As I already stated-- you left out the part about violent, forceful relocation, restriction to generally poor nonviable land, disease, eradication or genocidal policies, forced cultural assimilation, boarding schools and everything else which served to traumatically alter their way of life.

    By your same logic the only difference at all in life for a Palestinian of 80 years ago and a Palestinian today is that Israel provided them with a near first world quality country with lots of doo-dads.

    Kids were dragged out of the arms of their mothers and forced into boarding schools where they would be beaten or have their tongues whipped when caught speaking their native tongue. It was usual for indigenous children raised in boarding schools to never be allowed to go back out into the world until 18. By which time the language had been completely lost for an entire generation.

    This was common and a shared practice in the U.S., Australia, and Canada.

    Maybe you should actually know the first friggin thing about what you're talking about before you offer troll snipe opinions based in absolutely nothing.

    No, because reservations are atrocious, with horrible living conditions, poverty and misery. Which is kind of the point.

    There were hundreds of different language groups. They practised exogamy. They didn't write. They relied on oral communication and oral history.

    So you're not teaching them their own language? Teaching galley, fo'castle, yardarm, poop deck and other useful terms?

    I'm sure PAT's point would be that the reservations are that way because Natives have kept their "original culture" there. Of course the reality is most tribes don't even live on the same land they originally used to live on, didn't know how to survive in, and in many cases was horrible quality land. In the U.S. there had to be a whole slew of supreme court cases just to apportion water rights to tribes because literally they were stuck on useless arid land in the 19th century and told to farm when the land could not be farmed naturally. And then you run into other issues as well like in much of the arid upper midwest and middle America where reservations are located, some of the best crops you could grow (like commercial hemp) in the climate are banned because of the stupid war on drugs.

    Reservations are a case study in what happens when you stick people in a place where the land is crap and you've totally cut them off from either traditional or in most cases even conventional methods to be self-sustaining... and people like Pat Grimshaw then swoop in and point at the unemployment, desperation and poor conditions and attribute it to their 'inferior culture.' 'Inferior cultures' which had persisted for thousands of years far back into prehistory and come out of the friggin ice age before western contact.

    They practised exogamy. Are you sure? That's a serious charge hitherto unknown in world civilation. Have you taken this to the UN?
