Description

Justice in Paradise explains the legal and philosophical position behind Bruce Clark's opposition to the Indian rights industry. He argues that the North American legal system causes the genocide of those Indigenous peoples who embrace traditional religion and identity and accuses those who administer it of chicanery and abandoning the rule of law. Smeared in the media for his beliefs and attacked from the bench - he has been called "a disgrace to the bar" by the Chief Justice of Canada's Supreme Court. As a newsmaker, Bruce Clark is infamous - not for his discussions of the finer points of the law in relation to Aboriginal rights but for being dragged away by the police at the Native standoff at Gustafsen Lake, British Columbia. He has also challenged the United States' ownership of Liberty Island and the rest of the Hudson River drainage basin - the site of the world's most potent symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty.
