  1. Thoroughly enjoyable Wells, well done, always great to hear your insights. Two things:

    1) at the 1:33:55 mark you may have wanted to make clear (from my understanding of what you said) that you meant “learned helplessness” on the part of politicians who are half-hearted in dealing with these issues, not on the part of indigenous peoples. I could see you getting in hot water over that if people didn’t understand.

    2) for your trivia file, the former leader of the Green Party was Jim Harris, and the only reason I know that is because he lived 5 houses down the street from me until last year and not because he made a lasting impression as Green leader.
