This is a very interesting post, Charles. Aboriginal cultures certainly have a great deal to teach us about sharing and community. Even the idea of belonging to the land rather than owning the land is very confronting to those of us from Western cultures. However I don’t think these people are necessarily entirely free from mimetic desire as their myths and legends tell us, although they do seem to be light years ahead of us!
