Interesting personal story, Davy. Thanks for sharing. I'm in favor of reparations for those whose ancestors were enslaved and exploited. From what I've read, Australia is making far more progress than we in the US, at least based on how covid-19 vaccinations have been handled.

Davy I'm not ashamed of my part in the British Empire because I was born after the dam thing had ceased to be. But my nation should be ashamed to high heaven for what they did to the Aboriginal peoples and it's well past the time when the UK and Australia gave reparations to all first nation people around the empire. Sorry for any mistakes I'm using my phone and I haven't got my glasses.

My mother had cerebral palsy which caused her to only have limited use of her right arm. She had to use the very same lies that they told my Dad's mother about her ancestry  being West Indian not Aboriginal and if she ever said she was an aboriginal they were going to take her kids from her.  Mum used this lie to refute their claims when they tried to take her children from her because according to them we were Aboriginal. Because you see at the time the white fella didn't like having aboriginals living in towns and took their kids from them as they accused them of being good for nothings.   
She raised eight of her nine children to adulthood, she lost a son due to drowning and it shook both my parents and put a pall over their relationship and their dreams.
Yes! I am a Awabakal man, we found this fact out later in life when my brother researched our ancestry . It is the very reason that I have no compulsion to follow their barbaric Abrahamic religion that bolsters their arrogance as being better than other groups that go to make up the reality of Humanity.

Ian, it seems to me that if we have not learned from our colonial history we will destroy living matter and Earth as we know it. The recent past history, from Reagan and Thatcher through Trump leadership, the U.S. political scene seems doomed. We have to overcome the expectation of being entitled to the goods and services others can produce for us and neglect the working class.

Stephen Brodie, I watched a video the other day that states it is not the owner of land that matters, it is the control of it. This was from a rancher of huge herds of cattle in a cow/calf operation. He invests in cows, not land, and leases unused land from others too old or too rich to do the work. He makes more profits that way, according to him.

European countries started external colonisation only when they had established the idea of the defendable nation-state. Before that, they happily attacked and conquered each other. Even then some countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Balkan states) were part of either the Austro-Hungarian or Russian empires. The notion of empire has existed for thousands of years and might made it possible. We are perhaps the first generations to push for societies having consciense and responsibility. Let's hope we win that battle.

And you even weren't in my classes, Joan! But I'd love to see you there, or anywhere.

Chris B, you provide such thoughtful and energetic teaching to your pupils. I hope you can get back into that endeavor. I've admired your teaching style all these years and look forward to learning more from you.

We exist at a time and place where royalty and religion have no place or purpose. There is no need for a land-grabbing tyrant or a mind-grabbing dominionist to control and direct our lives. 

Individuals born with different talents have not only the rights but the obligations to develop those natural abilities.

Whether they have soft skills such as interpersonal, organization, and leadership skills or technical skills such as research, computer programming, accounting, or writing skills, each can hone their native abilities to the benefit of us all. Perhaps one's nature is in music, art, woodwork, mathematics, mechanical, caregiving, planning, or organizing,  education should exist to advance native abilities and create careers.
