At this time, the majority of people are finding out firsthand what it means to be an outsider: them, not us.
Few of us know what it means to be walking in the shoes of America’s First People who were banished to POW camps known as Reservations in the United States and Reserves north of the border.
Having our freedoms, liberty, ability to work, and pleasures removed for our own good has given many people a microdose of what it means to be an outsider.
The freedom to make decisions having to do with health has been nearly extinguished in the Covid world. Apparently, the authorities know better, once again, what is best for us and our families.
Moderate, conservative America has lost its voice, much like Native Americans did hundreds of years ago. Being a native son in a land that does not acknowledge you as a Native son is ironic.
We’ve seen this time and time again in the past.
We are being discriminated against and divided once again. What have been some of the reasons for division and conflict? Creed, color, nation of origin, religion, etc. Now it is whether we agree with their harsh terms that violate our liberty and freedom.
Today there is even more division and discrimination based on our beliefs about health, disease, truth, and lies.
Does the emperor really have clothes on or not?
We are once again a divided nation, in conflict with our neighbors, families, workplaces, religious leaders, brothers, sisters, and parents.
We’ve been down this path before. From civil war to witch hunts of minorities, in the past, people who didn’t believe the same things as the majority were discriminated against. This is nothing new here; it’s just taking a different form. And now social media fans the flames of division faster than we have ever seen in history.
For the first time, the majority of non Reservation people are experiencing what it feels like to be them, not us.
