The great lie

In light of so many hanging on to a most unsustainable system that trains them to hate on each other, only offering the illusion of choice between two (lesser in the eyes of some – pending who you ask – creating more of a divide) “evils”, here is a perspective to ponder.

“This is about a perceptional reality here. I come from a tribe. And whatever has been going on in my evolutionary journey, I still remember that. I’m confused about a lot of things but I remember that. I remember that when I was born, I, [there’s] never been a question about the memory.


See, so I feel a kinship to those ancestors and what they saw and what they tried to stand up against. I feel more of a kinship to them than I do to be a lap dog to this system and promote its lie. [applause] Alright, because I think it’s irresponsible.

And I think that when people are afraid to think … – and when people are afraid to think about what needs to be thought about, that’s the danger of the lie. Casualty of war, afraid to think.”

~ John Trudell, Lakota Activist, Poet
