This video by The Economist is an important reminder that draconian oppression of any indigenous people will always beget freedom for that people and almost always painfully so for both the oppressor and the oppressed. The formerly oppressor will continue to exist in shame as the formerly oppressed rebuild their independent existence in glory. At one point the shame and the glory will balance out, thus bringing about any preconditions for mutual respect.
