Mabo case is indeed influential and there are a number of documentaries and films made ...

Of course, almost every invention, new technique, policy comes into existence carrying with it the pros and cons, sometimes, pros far better outweigh the cons, in such a case, the society finds its gratification and enjoys it while trying to bring down the cons to the lowest possible level. However, when the cons exceed the pros and cause the negative imbalance, the society would be hit by the confusion a great deal, then, it would rely on its political and judicial body to correct the balance.

Oh, boy! As soon as the word CORRECT comes around, another word OVERCORRECT immediately hits me! But, that's how a society constantly initiates the conversations and moves forward as a whole.

The idea of 'Terra Nullius' was derived from John Locke's 'property rights'. I've, in recent years, come to realise that lots of the Enlightenment ideals, from today's point of view, had positive and nagetive effects in the same time, and were productive to some people as well as somewhat harmful to other peoples, e.g. progress theory(civilised vs premitives, colonisation), race theory (racism, eugenics), social Darwinism, just name a few.

To even think of the above topics, you can never be guaranteed a peaceful mind and be rest assured, can you?
