    Demands for repatriation of artefacts seized by marauders are becoming hard to resist.

    Objects safely maintained where many people can see them in security should be moved to insecure, obscure surroundings in order to remain unseen? Who benefits from that? The potter who created a piece two or more thousand years ago would be delighted to think it were on display in one of the world's centers. Whatever milieu he/she existed in has disappeared and would mean nothing to him/her.

    I guess the Australians should giver their island back to the aborigines, and the Americans their continent back to the Indians too. Libs can start first by moving off the land.

    Notice that Macron started off this debate.

    Trudeau should be next.
