Another Economy in Australia

There’s always been an economy in the lands now known as Australia. Well maybe not always, but for at least 60,000 years.

In 1788, when the British first started dispossessing the Rightful Owners of the soil, the Crown imposed a different legal and economic system onto these lands.
By settlering as if onto a Terra Nullius, the imposed economic order displaced and discounted the Traditional Economy, impoverishing the Traditional Owners. [node:read-more:link]

Federated Colonies of Australia – A Failed State

Cook - terra nullius

'Australia is not a nation formed under the customary international law. The Aboriginal Nations, however, were formed properly under that ancient system.

Every symbolic colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

Sydney City number 2

Sydney's current city is probably the largest urban system ever built from, and upon, an existing city framework and it was built in an unholy silence. So says Sydney based Peter Myers who was an architect on the design team of Jørn Utzon's famous Sydney Opera House at Bennelong Point.
Myers research was triggered in 1991 when a section of a lime plaster cornice collapsed on his c1853 Blacket villa - this led him to, maybe, the First Fleet's best-kept secret. [node:read-more:link]
