Of course property rights extend to land...

Of course property rights extend to land, but your point is definitely well taken. I too am troubled by the savagivizing of Native Americans when all they were doing is defending their land against colonialist.

But to be pragmatic, clearly we cannot just force Americans to relinquish their legally acquired property, nor can we punish the future for the actions of the past...though many would argue that's what we're doing now with all our debt and terrible policies, and I would agree.

What we can do is recognize that "savages" and "terrorists" are relative to our perspectives. We can realize the unintended consequences of occupying foreign lands. We can recognize that forced and coerced taxation is theft.

We need a culture shift...we have a people problem.
