    I'm sure you're aware of (since we're using Latin) jura possessionis. It was, in fact, theirs.

    This interpretation of 'socially advanced' doesn't alter the fact that the land was theirs.

    Gough was/is a legend . . . and I wouldn't vote Labor if you paid me.

    Jura possesionis reverts inalienably to toughus tittius when you don't have the strength to enforce your right of possession on others.
    That was a social concept that even aborigines well understood and practiced.

    You're contradicting yourself there, both by referring to their 'social concept', when you previously mentioned their lack of being 'socially advanced' and then again by stating that jura possessionis isn't inherent . . . which it is.
