I did mine in Arizona, it was about 13 years ago, but the fee was $50 you were required to notify people who might have an issue with it, but there wasn't any real definition of who that might be. There were also no residency requirements as far as I can recall (I had just moved there a few weeks before, I know I didn't have my license changed over yet).

Simpler solution. Eliminate fines for motor vehicle offenses. Use a points only system. Rack up x number of points, one month suspension, more, 6 months, then a year, then permanent. Let the points decay at a reasonable rate. Should affect all drivers equally regardless of wealth.

Were I them, I would be focusing my efforts this generation and next in repopulating, reinforcing cultural teachings and unity and acquiring wealth. The Jews are phenomenal example of recovering from their holocaust. I have witnessed small Jewish communities explode in population and influence over a span of only thirty years. The Amerindians could do the same with focused effort.

The overkill theory has been pretty much shot down. For one thing, megafauna disappeared worldwide at roughly the same time, there have not been mass remains found near native settlements, and those that disappeared were primarily predators, not food herbivore species. Competition with humans was likely a cause, maybe even the leading cause but it wasn't overhunting.

Star Trek seems a bit more egalitarian. There's hierarchies where there needs to be, and the Captain certainly get his own private toilet, but in things like restaurant reservations except where the owner specifically lets someone skip ahead or come in with no reservation based on merit I think it is equal. They won't keep Joe Plumber out entirely because of some perceived social class.
