Let's break that down.

A culture can't suffer 'misjustices '. Only people can. Most of those who have ancestry back to those people also have European ancestry. Are the same people claiming to be victims also claiming to be perpetrators?

All current Australians arrived here or were born here many decades after the events in question. Australians share no responsibility for any previous events.
All Australians share the responsibility to atone for aboriginal injustices.

So why not fix it and end it?

The Cost will be negligible
Lots of money has gone down that rabbit hole and problems still exist... the cost has been far more than negligible...

Again where does the blame game end and personal responsibility start

May wanna speak to the people on the sub continent, Malaysia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and that's just in our part of the world.

Also we only have independence to what was effectively our colony in Papua New Guinea in 1975

You don’t understand the topic.

Read up. Listen to people involved and people affected.
I perfectly understand the topic.

A pithy saying to appeal to the twitter crowd and woke city lefties to further drive wedges in the community and promote victimhood which has provided an industry to that cohort instead of actually dealing with the proper issues that are occurring..

You don’t or you wouldn’t be making such completely incorrect statements.
or perhaps I just think your talking rubbish... that's ok, you can take on the guilt for me while I just remain happy in the fact that this land is as much mine as everyone else.

So you think the Indigenous Peoples should have slaughtered Cook and later the First Fleet before they took hold of the land?

Yes, I see your point, that certainly would have made them far more responsible

The idea that anyone or any one civilization owns land is silly. Even 50,000 years on the earths geological clock is a fraction of a second let alone a human lifetime. The earth will rid itself of humans soon enough and a new life form will evolve into that space.

How far are you willing to extend the notion of ownership; for example the commodities that exist on the land? The items that are made from the commodities that exist on the land?
