“I wanna be free. I want you to be free. A lot easier for me to be free if you’re free”
Credo of the American Indian Movement
“Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself-and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty.”
—————Chief Joseph of The Nez Perce

Oh, please, enough of the moral superiority ruse. It is your prejudice on display, and the typical I-don’t-need-to-consider-other-points-of-view hypocrisy that hides ignorance of the kind that puts rapists and murderers on a pedestal with genuine Indian warriors. Get a clue.
As I stated, it’s not an important topic and not relevant to the post this thread began with. Nice try.
I would change that to read, “…a lot easier for me to be free if you’re dead.” Russell Means has now joined his victims, Martin Mountileaux, Leo Wilcox, and Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, etal., in the hereafter.
These statements are the direction humanity is moving toward now in very positive and powerful ways. Globalism, planetary citzenship, one people, one planet, one God. Humanity is moving toward a global government of peace through justice. Peace without justice is tyranny. The transition will not be easy for some. Many who are not properly fit for the experiment will lose their connection to reality, become paranoid and psychotic and wreak unspeakable violence upon themselves and those around them. We’ve already seen this phenomenon occur increasingly over the last decade and it will contnue to increase as the transition to a spiritual world government and a spiritual world economy progresses. Those whose focus is on the material realm will see only fearful visions of loss and separation from their materialistic attachments and these unfortunate ones will attack that which is provided for their own direct benefit, like the rabid dog that attacks the man who offers it life-giving water. The two men quoted in the post were not speaking of freedom in any materialistic sense, their vision was far beyond what the materialistic mind is capable of comprehending. They both gave up the way of the gun and of warfare before their passing and grew beyond material attachment. As a result these two men were able to see with their spiritual eye beyond all material fears to the prophesied global community revealed by Baha’u’llah. Their example is one of great wisdom for the people of this day.
Nicely written. Keep those cards and letters coming!
