Landless, money-less, heritage-less

It has been my experience personally, and what I have witnessed & read that when a group of people want to be accommodated and repaid, that they never stop. With every restitution they seek, they state that they will be happy, yet with every restitution given them, they become more hungry and seek to gain more and more. This is true with all peoples. And the Natives of SE Alaska it is no different. Once they get land for payment, what will stop them from seeking more of 'their' land. After all, they did live here first.

Makes me think I should have Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Germany and Morocco give me a few acres land in each country as restitution for previous economic circumstances forcing my family to leave and come to the American Continent. We'll see how far that goes.
