The Maori Land Court was originally used as an instrument by the Crown to literally steal land from Maori. Maori gave it the nickname "engine of destruction." So I'm not sure how Ryan thought that this was going to help his case.
Ryan was asking a question because Ryan knew you were Maori and wanted your opinion on it. The reason I raised it was that there was conflict between the metropole and the periphery between rights for natives and the settlers wanting to remove or hinder those rights.

Ryan, do you intend to keep arguing through non sequiturs?
I'm not arguing anything.
