Colonialism is a disease. It is characterized by fantasies, delusions, greed and destruction of everything in its path. Something like the “Cookie Monster” that eats everything up and just leaves a few crumbs behind ...
Recently the Lakota decided to give the colonists another chance to come to their senses. They put out a “Declaration of Continuing Independence” on December 17, 2007. It’s nothing new. According to ancient principles of international law that were defined and confirmed by the UN, the Lakota and all Indigenous Peoples continue to be independent and sovereign. The colonists did not respect the law because they’re sick and deluded. But that is no excuse. There are signs that many people who were born in colonial society have developed a resistance to the disease. The Lakota Declaration is attempting to strengthen the process needed to overcome the illness. It is offering members of the colonial society a reality check and a chance to start treating everyone with equality and respect. They’ll have to leave their “false hierarchical high” and fill that void some other way! Can they rehabilitate themselves and begin the long slow process of recovering from their addiction and escape this ravaging disease?
It is a good way to begin the new year!
