Like aborigines have more of a right to live on the land that is called Australia than the white Aussies of European descent.

The Yankees who took land in California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico were really transplanted Brits for the most part. They were nearly all descended from the original settlers from the British Isles who had arrived in the American colonies a couple of centuries earlier. Check the names of those who died during the siege of the Alamo. Nearly all of English, Irish or Scottish origin. Two centuries of existence in America had not bred out that instinct to acquire ever more land. An inheritance from their Empire building Brit forefathers

I'm pretty sure that's not an actual instinct. It's a learned response... perfected by the Ferengi.

Gives a whole new meaning to lactose intolerant.
