If you and your family were setting out to sea indefinitely on a small ship that would receive limited deliveries of potable water once a week, chances are you wouldn’t plant a garden of hibiscus and bougainvillea on deck.

The litigants claim—as part of the "reading public"—that they've been harmed because President Jimmy Carter's non-fiction book, "Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid", was…Continue
In Australia Europeans justified invasion based on the doctrine of Terra nullius. It is a despicable legal trick that legitimises occupation by denying the existence of a people. Europeans defined people as 'civilised' and claimed Aboriginals were not civilised, therefore they did not fall into the definition of a people.
