    Today is a good time to be talking up Treaty. Yet not without considering how far we all have to go in respect of whom we are asking to make Treaty with Indigenous Australia. The governance of legislative justice has all too often proven itself to be fundamentally flawed, and yet still we ask for it to make Treaty with the Sovereign people of Australia. Why? It is not because we are ignorant to the flaws, but because we recognise a need to repair those flaws. Today I considered the business of Treaty in this context. Why do we want to repair the flaws? It is of course because that will be the most expedient method by which to prevent further havoc in the environment of flora and fauna which God provides mankind to live among. To rule over the animals, and accept the trees as living sentient beings. Perhaps after all it will be the trees whose will it is to make Treaty, that are causing it.
