One of my best friends my great Uncle George Latham taught me the basic rules of debating with someone and one of the main rules is a simple one...
....when you're in a debate with an opponent and they resort to personal insult then they've already lost the debate...
Now with First Nation Land Rights.....If there's any debate about our existence as First Nation people here in this continent & about the land we know...we're insulted a LOT by those who debate against us. That goes from the legal side of things right up into the colonial 'government' voted in by the majority.
No one can debate the fact that we, First Nation people were here first and that people predominately occupy land that was stolen and is held today as stolen property.
....but ....The Native Title Act is in itself a debate question...AND a personal insult as the opening premise to be held in a court that represents not our laws but theirs....aimed at every First Nation person who's been dispossessed when they talk about the 10 point plan amendments. They literally insult us before we sit for the court debate by saying that we need to prove our dispossession to them.
........so how can they make legislation and expect more debate from us again & again if it's more of the same compounding insult? They did and do insult us....they even vote on what insult we deserve and they have ministers assigned to hand them over and lots of stolen wealth to wrap it up and to shut up those who are numb to it all...
The fact is when they insult us...we win.
If they hurt us ...we win...the entire debate.
....so there's no real genuine debate out there that can tell us why we can't have REAL land right aye?
First Nation people don't come from the Planet Koozebane.
We were here first. We're still here and we won.
