What if I said to you, "Yes, we absolutely need to deport ourselves back to Europe, and return all land and resources to the indigenous peoples."
Would you argue? Could you find a valid argument that somehow alleviates us of the responsibility for the genocide we have unleashed on indigenous peoples around the world? No, you couldn't find a valid argument. But you'd fight me on it, anyhow.
But what if I also said, "It probably won't happen in our lifetimes."
Does that change how you feel? Do you feel relieved when I say that? Are you ready to consider the idea, with this in mind?
If you said yes, then I know two things about you. One, you fundamentally agree that what we have done, both we and our ancestors, is absolutely inhumane and requires redress. And two, you don't mind entertaining the thought as long as it doesn't affect YOU.
