Aboriginal people must embrace capitalism or risk being left behind in the modern world, a prominent indigenous leader says.

Native HawaiiansWhat is the most essential and basic glue that binds living, and formerly living, and yet to be living individuals to other individuals whether they are animal or plant? Is it a piece of paper such as a constitution? Is it nebulous concepts such as "freedom" and "democracy"? Is it that they have occupied the same piece of land? No. Not one of these things is essential or basic. And none of them are very strong glue. What naturally glues together things that live or have lived or will live is having the same genome. In humans, this is usually expressed as being of the same race. - (Commentary) - (H. Millard index)

King Taufa'ahau Tupou IVHowever the protest turned ugly when they were refused a visit with King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV and a fight broke out among a small group of protesters and staff.  Police were called with two men removed to cool down and another arrested for wilful damage. Earlier, the lead protester Alan Taione had arrived at the entry of the residential grounds in a four-wheel drive vehicle draped with protest banners.  He opened the boot of his 4WD to reveal a bomb-shaped metal canister with a material stuffed into its mouth like a wick. Mr Taione, an Auckland motor mechanic, said he was going to sacrifice himself for the people of Tonga unless he got an audience with the King.

The Ignoble Savage By Thomas S. Garlinghouse
Bashers of Western civilization wax nostalgic over an imagined Golden Age, when Noble Savages, uncontaminated by capitalism, enjoyed peace, harmony and environmental balance. In reality, prehistoric peoples waged incessant, brutal wars and hunted vast numbers of animal species to extinction - perhaps even the woolly mammoth and other great Ice Age creatures of North America.
