She wrote also of Indians in : "... different in details and identical in intent and disastrous effect to that of Indians in the United States"

Nevertheless, themes of survival persist:

"2. Indians endure -- both in the sense of living through something so complete in its destructiveness that the mere presence of survivors is a testament to the human will to survive and in the sense of duration or longevity. Tribal systems have been operating in the "new world" for several hundred thousand years. It is unlikely that a few hundred years of colonization will see their undoing." (Introduction)

We can tell by who the whiteman elected Prezzy prez, that their sense of dread must be growing day by day.

"The acts of aggression committed against every aspect of American Indian life and society over the centuries-- what the Aztecs foresaw as Nine Hells or Nine Descents --have left indelible, searing scars on the minds and spirits of the native peoples on this continent. But voices of the spirits that inform Native America are being heard in every region.

The oral tradition, from which the contemporary poetry and fiction take their significance and authenticity, has, since contact with white people, been a major force in Indian resistance." (p. 53)

"Contemporary Indian communities value individual members who are deeply connected to the traditional ways of their people, even after centuries of concerted and brutal effort on the part of the American government, the churches, and the corporate system to break the connections between individuals and their tribal world. In short, Indians think it is important to remember, while Americans believe it is important to forget." (p. 210)

Why get off corporate social media? Because it's plastered with lies and advertisements, with insidious garbage trying to brainwash, distract, and detract you from what's really important.

We just had the largest marches in the world, and Ecosteader still has almost no voice.

Twitter is a cesspool of diarrhea... it is the kind of still-warm, "MAGA" maggot-breeding diarrhea that gushes from orifices of a doomed TRE45ONIST man wrapped up so tightly in his doom that he fears everything: even little children from Mexico. He is a monster.

Facebook is cancer, a toxic sludge of radioactive waste that wants to suck you into perpetual unhappiness and discontent. Even your best intents to, say, donate to worthy causes are being siphoned off to feed the delusional money beasts: payment processing fees to feed the greed of the sneering techbros who think they are entitled to take a piece of this and a chunk of that to just "buy" whatever they want with all their money.

Zuck tried to buy his own paradise in Hawaii, but Hawaii said NO.

My day job is writing documentation for developers who work in what is perhaps the most hyped buzz phrase industry today: Artificial Intelligence.

Those who work in AI know that really, it is just a fancy way of saying math. Computers can do math astoundingly fast (this is AKA Machine Learning), which means they can distinguish patterns astoundingly fast. The application of a "known" pattern to a new scenario to achieve a predictable and desired result is the gist of what most AI does.

Conversely, nature has what is more aptly described as "Natural" Intelligence. Every single plant that bursts with seed pods has inherent engineering to maximize success for that plant's "known" pattern ... it rallies and sometimes flocks with others of its kind to further ensure that its cycle can repeat itself and sustain its unique imprint of and on life.

Of course, we can honor their efforts with more

Mark Charles is right: it is time to put the dysfunctional settler constructs in the past.

Here's an example of "weak with a history of malicious" among (and therefore bound to haunt) the cartel of settler-founded, and criminal Realtors and all of their associates:

A member of the Realtor cartel committed VEHICULAR MANSLAUGHTER ( Yes, the Realtor intentionally sought to literally kill the homeless person with their vehicle. In front of a church. )

This is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE, not civil: krqe.com/news/local-real-estat

"Jun 7, 2017 / 10:30 PM MDT / Updated: Jun 7, 2017 / 10:30 PM MDT

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Family of the man who Albuquerque realtor Chris Pino is accused of running over is now suing.

The complaint for wrongful death claims Pino intentionally hit a man with his car, but the attorney defending Pino in the criminal murder case ..."

plays victim, says angry BLAH BLAH BLAH, denial, blah blah (not important),

The attorney working on behalf of the family to bring the wrongful death to justice said:

"“They’re devastated,” attorney Mark Fine said.

He represented 30-year-old Daniel Arballo’s family in the wrongful death lawsuit."

Hey, I have a question:

To collaborate / hire union (the kinds of good people encouraging, helping, or otherwise in favor of workers' unions) ... especially when maybe dealing with different trade unions each proficient in their most preferred skilled trade ... what are some good ideas?

Our original version of Ecosteader had a setup like this to try to help workers localize (e.g. not have to do excessive fossil fuel commutes for jobs when qualified workers are available locally)

web.archive.org/web/2018083014.

The "ws standard" we want to avoid is devaluing everyone like minimum wage does ( as ws have been and continue to be in denial of their own status as immigrants and unwelcome overstayers, they'll find out what it's like to be on the other end of that soon enough ).

Companies in the 70's, 80's and 90's organized around highly exploitative going concerns that should have been shut down long ago (or stayed shut down).

No American City Has Ever Tried a Climate Justice Tax Like the One Portland Is Launching

"It's long past time for Portland, a city with a history of institutionalized racism, to move aggressively toward equity, Hardesty and others say."

"It's a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It's also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits."

The new tax, created by a 2018 ballot initiative city voters passed by an overwhelming margin, is part of a power shift that saw two outsiders—Chloe Eudaly in 2016 and Jo Ann Hardesty in 2018—defeat establishment candidates for seats on the Portland City Council."

"N’we Jinan, whose name means "We Live Here" in James Bay (Eastern) Cree, is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 and registered nationally in 2016.

It began as a platform for participating youth to learn about and acquire skills in sound recording, music production, songwriting, and performance. Through the use of a mobile studio, original songs are created that center on themes of cultural identity, language, struggle, love, and self-acceptance. To date, more than 500 First Nations youth have participated across 40 communities, resulting in 80 songs and videos that have been viewed more than 15 million times online."

How, exactly, do these people think a leftist society work? We pick your favorite leftist, say Kroptokin, then it's Viva Prince Kroptokin? What the fuck are you, Carlists? Jacobites?

No. Direct democracy means total transparency and full accountability. It means that the people can and will take the power back whenever they want, for whatever reasons they want. If you're not up for that, don't prop yourself up as a false prophet.

Ironically, it's these idol worshipers who love purity tests the most, because to them anyone who don't agree with their monarch and savior on everything are automatically not pure enough.

> "as a species, we are capable of making enormous, far-reaching changes."

How's this for a retort:

"The white supremacy species never changed (afawk) because it was sent out of our orbit long ago. More likely than not, those who've been proven to genocide kill races, as far as we know, have an eternally failing race condition."

Fun fact: the most popular card game in China is called 鬥地主, or "fight the landlord". It's not played in any other Chinese-speaking area as far as I know.

"Fear not the fascist; he is the consummate coward.

Beneath the mask and riot armor, that state-made veneer of power, is a wailing, heaving toddler, told by men far more cynical than he that his tantrum is an expression of mythology and a defense of his birthright.

Because anyone who loves the Arctic should care:

The recall to get Dunleavy to stop brutally murdering Alaska? Yeah, it's working. So many prayers answered.

He'll be out; that much is obvious. Though the expediency of this removal? That cannot be emphasized enough. )

"An Anchorage Superior Court judge ruled Friday in favor of the recall campaign against Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy, saying the Division of Elections incorrectly rejected the effort.

“This is a question for the voters, and the constitution makes that very clear”
"

He is no match for the kind of transparency Alaska knows. The only monsters in Alaska talk and look and dress just like him.

The ousting of all these men should happen at once!

Welcome to the of Landlords, whose greed for money causes people to move around and live such a transient, disposable life that they have to throw away half of their belongings every time they move?

Yeah, that's partially it, but people are just fucking stupid.

There is an equal-sized dumpster with mixed recycling options for paper, plastic, and metal literally 3 feet away from this dumpster.

What a sickening and disgusting, disgusting sight, eh? Portland is not as great of a place as I thought it was. Its suburbs are much smarter.

Showing also the "wall of text" excuses the spokesperson paid by the landlord company sent me when I asked about composting.

May their "equities" and souls burn in overflowing dumpsters like these, forever inhaling the toxic fumes of their own willful ignorance.

The temperature differentials are clashing in longer strides.

Likely too dangerous to fly? Turbulence among these currents will probably be especially unpredictable.

"Temperatures have been running as much as 20 to 30 degrees or more above normal in most locations east of the Mississippi River, creating dozens of record highs."

"More than 267,000 customers between Arkansas and Ohio lacked power Saturday evening, according to poweroutage.us, which aggregates information from hundreds of electric utilities.

With roughly 300 total reports of severe weather (damaging winds, hail or tornadoes) thus far, it is the largest severe weather event of 2020 to date, and the most significant since an outbreak in December across much the same region."

Some and a 2018 report from an 11 member tribal collaboration with GLIFWC about threatened species in the Great Lakes region.

"Various concerns regarding waawaashkeshi were mentioned during the interviews, with most of them focusing on the health of the animals. A tribal member referred to waawaashkeshi as a canary in a coal mine–when waawaashkeshi health and population declines, its habitat is not healthy. The recent rise in chronic wasting disease (CWD) and contaminates such as lead are directly impacting the harvest of waawaashkeshi. It was also noted that there seem to be more cases of CWD in southern Wisconsin, which a tribal member feels is due to the waawaashkeshi not having access to the proper plants (such as northern white cedar and Canada yew) to medicate itself and a loss of their habitat due to logging. One tribal member estimates that the waawaashkeshi herd in northwestern Wisconsin has decreased 50 percent between 2010 and 2015."

Dams, removal works. Maybe the still-endangered can recover with retrocausality.

Chin'u uk Wa'_ Attitude, it seems, requires more advanced thinking than most settlers are capable of mustering. They haven't the patience; and their faulty ideas about "insurance" claims indicates they never will.

in Congress made their greed apparent with their bill designed to put salmon into extinction; (reported in 2018): "House Resolution 3144 seeks to overturn multiple federal court decisions that protect endangered salmon and steelhead." Kawahara, an Alaskan fisherman said, "We expect our elected officials to bring people together and work on solutions... instead, we get this divisive bill that locks in failure and conflict. HR 3144 will have a devastating effect on salmon and our region's salmon-fishing sector."

"From populations numbering 130,000 fish in the 1950s, wild Snake River spring Chinook salmon dropped to approximately 5,800 in 2017. Thirteen populations are listed under the Endangered Species Act, and all four salmon and steelhead populations in the Snake River Basin are at risk of extinction, according to NOAA Fisheries. The dwindling number of salmon is having ripple effects across the food chain. In Washington State, only 73 Southern Resident orcas remain, due in part to the lack of Chinook salmon, their main prey."
