Lets give the land back

Honest question. After what everybody's done to it over the past centuries, would they even want it back?

That’s a great question that points out that comprehensive reparations or land back would be an absolutely grueling huge slow drawn out confusing process

@Boss that and in the end the land they hold so dear has been changed, warped and polluted over the years. Anything that was valuable both sentimentally, as well as financially through resources exploited, would have been dried out. Unless they or those that took the land from them, find a way to restore it to its natural beauty, the land is worthless on both fronts. The people using it will have dried up all resources, while the people that want it back will be disappointed with the result once it's over. That said I do have hope they get it back either way. It's the principle of the matter.

Hey Boss, I thought you'd disappeared! It'd be awesome for some countries like America to give people their land back however I think that countries like the United Kingdom (where I live) could help relations a lot if our museums (like the British Museum) gave people their heritage back. Did you know that the museum's African collection, comprises of over 200,000 objects? It'd be great if it was a collection on loan from it's rightful owners but sadly the British Empire had a record of going into countries, declaring themselves the rightful owner (or protectorate) and looting the good historical stuff from the many museums and collections in the countries.

Sound familar at all? The Nazis did a similar thing during World War Two which is always condemned however because it's the British that did it in the past it seems we've got a 'get out of historical jail free card'.

I love this comment! This is so true and this should be something people talk about more. I wonder sometimes if the human lifespan expands if we would have the time for people working at institutions who have done awful things to trust other cultures and countries more and do the right thing. Or if we would just have more evil rich vampires. I think we have to do the right thing now somehow
