The western concept of land ownership can also be summed up with analogy:

A warrior destroys a village and kills all the men. He then takes whatever woman he chooses to be his wife.

So the white man has done with land.

There is no respect in either relationship.

Private land ownership is not morally defensible when arguments are made such as councillor Mitchell's (BTW no relation!!).

Not only that, the really big, huge actually, "missing the point" is that the odd hiker or cyclist is no threat at all to agricultural land compared with market forces which would build more suburbs and highways.
