And just out of morbid curiosity, how do you imagine we will abolish private property and how exactly will that prevent a group of indigenous people from making sure you'll never step on what they decide is 'their' land.

Through violence. Same way it did for the current landowners.

they really are picturing indigenous people retaking stolen land and an army of white anarcho-settlers forming to kill indigenous people to get their suburbs back

I can't possibly understand how someone could get so worked up over indigenous people getting government subsidies. It really screams I've never been poor in my life.

It's interesting you mention being poor. My partner, whom is of descent of a colonised people, once said to me, it must be nice having the privilege of never having been poor, weighing in your mind.

This statement really flipped my thinking of privilege.
Being poor and destitute (in an alienated society) is a trauma that people never recover from (though some have the resilience to resist it's effects).
To disparage others from accepting resources so that their children may have a chance of not experiencing this trauma, shows an incredibly high amount of unacknowledged privilege.

Sure there are problems with reparations and integration, but in order to fight back, it's much easier if you're not also fighting to survive at a basic level.

I think most people in the US have no comprehension of what it is like on many reservations. It's literally impossible to survive without state subsidies due to 100s of years of purposefully disempowerment by the US government.

It's take the subsidies or die. And people just don't understand that. And even if it isn't a state of taking the subsidies or die there is no real problem with taking all the handouts u can get bc life is hard af..

For sure, I’m totally the one coming up with white nationalist fever dreams for no reason.

It's sad that I see a Norse(?) name and think of white ethno-nationalism.

That being said, on the topic, there's plenty of room for improvement for the indigenous people of the Scandinavian area, whom are often forgotten.

Lol sorry for the confusion, my handle is an obscure character’s name from a Terry Pratchett book.

No, it was more just thinking "out loud". Not really a comment about you.

Now I look at it more closely, definitely a Dwarf name.

I looked up the name, and can't really remember the book... I might just have to re-read some Terry Pratchett... oh no... Sounds nice, I've been reading too much theory.
