I’ve tried to figure out the likely impetus behind your comment, in a way that makes it unoffensive, but I can’t get there. As stated, it seem judgemental and dogmatic, as if you’re sure you have the moral high-ground and just really need to let us know.
But that can’t be right, can it? Please explain.
In any case, after some contemplation, I think my compliment of a particular part of Sam’s post is appropriate: Saying you’re sorry for a wrong you’ve committed and doing nothing to right it is a hollow response.
That noted, I’m not at all sure that Andrews did anything wrong - any more than any of us alive today who own property in North America. Or Central America. Or South America. Or Europe.
I agree that you can’t just return the land, just like we can’t go back to the good-old-days (that never were). We can only go forward. Still, there must be things we can do as a country to at least partially rectify the land-grab that was US American expansionism - which we only just gave up after Hawaii became a state.
The first step may be influential public acknowledgement, and perhaps a public information campaign, forcing us to face what we as a country did. I’m not sure, but it seems like a reasonable start, which is what I think Sam is saying as well.
