Worth your time! Enjoy your reservation.
It seems to me the existing American culture is based on Old English culture, which is of a warring nature. Just think about England's history ...
Now we have 'Red Dawn' (again).
Where in tribal communal, life is more free ( i won't use the term democracy -has become branded and soiled lost all meaning)
He mentions many of the founding principles of the US Constitutions came from Native American way of life.
When the Roman Empire expanded into Celtic and later into the outskirts of Tribal Germanic lands they found a people whose way of life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germania_%28book%29 would in later centuries, help shape and remold the renewal of the Roman Empire, which would then descend into feudalism, which I blame squarely at the foot of the Roman Catholic Church, which is an abomination.
We have forgotten the way of shared living, that women as bringers of life had more say in how life was lived in tribal communities they were worshiped both spiritual & physically. Today women have the vote (for what its worth today) and more rights at work with more but not total equality in life and the workplace, but they have those rights within a system of Patriarchy, which is wrong and inherently evil.
Who were the last of the so called pagans that were killed in the lands of what today constitutes Europe? Women as supposedly Witches the Church did not burn wizards. Those women were no doubt leaders in their local communities. I guess that the "war on terror" in those times would be "War on Women/witches"
For a state to function it must instill fear into populace, by having/creating an enemy from within the State and one that is outside.
Quote:Russell Charles Means (November 10, 1939 – October 22, 2012) was an Oglala Sioux activist for the rights of Native American people and libertarian political activist. He became a prominent member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) after joining the organization in 1968, and helped organize notable events that attracted national and international media coverage.
Means was active in international issues of indigenous peoples, including working with groups in Central and South America, and with the United Nations for recognition of their rights. He was active in politics at his native Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and at the state and national level.
Beginning an acting career in 1992, he appeared in numerous films, including The Last of the Mohicans and released his own music CD. He published his autobiography Where White Men Fear to Tread in 1995....In August 2011, Means was diagnosed with esophageal cancer....The following year, however, his health continued to decline and he died on October 22, 2012, less than a month before his 73rd birthday. A family statement said, "Our dad and husband now walks among our ancestors."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russell_Mea..._and_death
I always listened to Russell when he appeared on the idiot box, and read his book awhile back.
Russell on his book, and what I touched on above, in my prior post.
