Australia leans ever much in the direction of US Republican conservatism. It treats its aborigines very poorly. Those in Australia of European descent don't even attempt to comprehend the damage they have done to the people by destroying their way of life. They don't care about the damage to the environment done by not learning from those who lived so close to the land for tens of thousands of years.
The can be said of the US treatment of indigenous Americans.
Rather than merging the best with the best of various understandings, the arrogant are raping the earth and will pay for it.
That is not a statement looking to curse anyone or for retribution. We pray with no ill will.
