human rights are for people.
Con-vince Natives their ancestors were savages, that they were pagan, that
Natives are drunkards. Make them wards of the government. Make a legal
distinction, as in the Indian Act, between Indians and persons. Write history
books that tell half the story.
Con-vince the Native that he should be
patient, that these things take time. Tell him that we are making progress, and
that progress takes time.
Make the Native believe that things are being
done for his own good. Tell him you're sure that after he has experienced your
laws and actions that he will realise how good they have been.
Native he has to take a little of the bad in order to enjoy the benefits you
are conferring on him.
Get some Native people to do all the dirty work.
There are always those who will act for you to the disadvantage of their own
people. Just give them a little honor and praise. This is generally the
function of band councils, chiefs, and advisory councils: they have little
legal power, but can handle the tough decisions such as welfare, allocation of
Consult the Native, but do not act on the basis of what
you hear. Tell the Native he has a voice and go through the motions of
listening. Then interpret what you have heard to suit your own needs.
Insist that the Native "GO THROUGH PROPER CHANNELS." Make the channels
and the procedures so difficult that he won't bother to do anything. When he
discovers what the proper channels are and becomes proficient at the
procedures, change them.
Make the Native believe that you are working
hard for him, putting in much overtime and at a great sacrifice, and imply that
he should be appreciative. This is the ultimate in the skill of stealing
human rights; when you obtain the
thanks of your victim.
Allow a few individuals to "MAKE THE GRADE" and
then point to them as examples. Say that the 'HARDWORKERS" and the "GOOD"
Natives have made it, and that therefore it is a person's own fault if he
Appeal to the Natives's sense of fairness, and tell
him that even though things are pretty bad it is not right for him to make
strong protests. Keep the argument going on his form of protest and avoid
talking about the real issue. Refuse to deal with him while he is protesting.
Take all the fire out of his efforts.
Encourage the Native to take his
case to court. This is very expensive, takes lots of time and energy and is
very safe because laws are stacked against him. The court's ruling will defeat
the Native's cause, but makes him think he has obtained justice.
the Native believe that things could be worse, and that instead of complaining
about the loss of human rights, to
be grateful for the rights we do have. In fact, him that to attempt to regain a
right he has lost is likely to jepordize the rights that he still has.
Set yourself up as the protector of the Native's
human rights, and then you can
choose to act only on those violations you wish to act upon. By getting
successful on a few minor violations of
human rights, you can point to
these as examples of your devotion to his cause. The burglar who is also the
doorman is the perfect combination.
Pretend that the reason for the
loss of human rights is for some
other reason that the person is a Native. Tell him some of your best friends
are Natives, and that his loss of rights is because of his housekeeping, his
drinking, his clothing.
Make the situation more complicated than is
necessary. Tell the Native you will have to take a survey to find out how many
other Natives are being discriminating against. Hire a group of professors to
make a year-long research project.
Insist on unanimity. Let the Native
know that when all the Natives
make up their minds about just what they want as a group, then you will
act. Play one group's special situation against another group's wishes. Present
dilemmas none of which have any merit, and then tell the Native that indeed he
has a choice. Ask, for instance, if he could or would rather have council
elections in June or December, instead of asking if he wants them at all.
Convince the Native that the leaders who are the most beneficial and
powerful are dangerous and not to be trusted. Or simply lock them up on some
charge like driving with no lights. Or
refuse to listen to the real
leaders and spend much time with the weak ones. Keep the people split from
their leaders by sowing rumour. Attempt to get the best leaders into high
paying jobs where they have to keep quiet to keep their paycheck coming in.
Speak of the common good. Tell the Native that you can't consider
yourselves when there is a whole nation to think of. Tell him that he can't
think only of himself. For instance, in regard to hunting rights, tell him we
have to think of all the hunters, or the sporting goods industry.
Remove rights so gradually that people don't realize
what has happened until it is too late. Again, in regard to hunting rights,
first restrict the geographical area where hunting is permitted, then cut the
season to certain times of the year, then cut the limits down gradually, then
insist on licensing, and then Nativess will be on the same grounds as elite

Perhaps the most remarkable characteristic of this political theory sits in its
deep-seated conservatism. However radical the principles of the Revolution may
have seemed to the rest of the world, in the
minds of the colonists they
were thoroughly preservative and respectful of the past." - Clinton
"No referendum was necessary for the Declaration of
Independence and it might well have failed in some of the colonies. The "will
of the people," so precious to demagogues, did not determine what was right and
true. The people can fall for Hitler,
adore Obama, and be
enchanted by silly or
wicked men. The purpose of government, as the Declaration clearly states, is to
secure liberty and not to implement that dubious, inconstant sentiment "the

"I was struck by the number of
offenses attributed to the "British crown" that have been, and are being,
committed by the George Walker Bush

majority of voters who returned
this particular George to a second term in order that he might continue to
pursue policies so at odds with our founders' ideals." - Jeffery A. Wolf
"I was struck by the fact that many of our founding fathers' grievances
are the same as those felt by today's Democrats. For example, John Hancock et
al complained that King George III had "forbidden his governors to pass laws of
immediate and pressing importance ... "; "affected to render the military
independent of and superior to the civil power. . . " and perhaps most
chillingly, "made judges dependent on his will alone. . . . " There are
numerous other parallels between the administration of King George III and
George Walker Bush. Perhaps
it's time we abolished ties to our King George?" -Chris Jares
King George III of EnglandKing George III suffered from a genetic disorder called porphyria,
an over production of the reddish pigments in hemoglobin, which carry oxygen in
red blood cells.
III displayed many symptoms of porphyria, including abdominal pain, reddish
urine and acute mental disturbances.
Similar symptoms had been reported
across several generations of the
Ironically arsenic contaminated medicines used to treat some of
his symptoms probably exacerbated them as arsenic disrupts hemoglobin
production which, paradoxically, triggers many or porphyria's symptoms.
Biochemist Martin J. Warren of the University of Kent and his
colleagues studied five strands of George III's gray hair preserved at London's
Science Museum. They concluded that the hair had an arsenic content of 17 times

extremely likely that his bouts of madness were due to severe porphyric
attacks," Martin J. Warren said. "Arsenic may have precipitated his attacks, or
made them much more severe."
King George III experienced at least five
bouts of extreme derangement, each lasting weeks. King George III occasionally
became violent, and he often talked to imaginary people, including a
tree he thought was the
Prussian king, Frederick II.
There is a very real possibility that
had King George III not suffered from severe
arsenic poisoning the American colonies would have been dealt with in an
entirely different manner and the American Revolution would never have

predecessors [houses of Elephant and Donkey alike] dating back to the reign of

and their trusted advisors], all having in direct object the establishment of
an absolute Tyranny over these Colonies and their Poor and
Middle Class inhabitants.
To prove this, let candid facts be submitted to the citizens Earth

royal advisors: lords

Orleans, the suspension of labor laws which would have ensured fair wages to
those rebuilding the city, and the
dispensation of generous federal contracts to crony corporations to rebuild a

the interests of the wealthy.
They manipulated facts and presented
lies to the American people and to
Congress to gain necessary approval of a "preventive", illegal war against the
sovereign nation of Iraq on the shifting premises that this nation posed an
immediate threat to our national security, that the
Iraqi people needed a champion

They have continued to perpetuate,

corrupt, avaricious corporations.
These cornucopias of avidity for wealth and
power pay sub-standard wages, offer minimal
benefits to their employees, increasingly utilize inexpensive "offshore" labor, manufacture
products in "sweat
shops" which egregiously violate the human rights of their employees,
profiteer during wars and natural disasters, rape the environment and
plunder our precious natural
resources, utilize "creative accounting methods" to increase their stock
value, capitalize on laws enabling them to
create hostile environments for unions, demand virtually endless increases in
corporate welfare, and strangle
acquisitions accomplished with
their over-inflated stocks.
They have perpetuated and
expanded an executive branch of government which is in many ways
indistinguishable from the leviathan corporations and wealthy elite which it
serves and represents.
They have forsaken their primary responsibility,
which is to preserve the universal human rights of their citizenry, and to
secure the general welfare of the citizenry.
They have rapidly eroded federal
domestic programs promoting health
basic infrastructure, and
housing, while directing unconscionable sums of public monies to
industrial complex comprised of current and former government officials and
the wealthy elite.
They seize the lion's share of
taxes from their citizens and spend
obscene amounts to finance a grotesquely powerful military [and their imperial
adventures], while a significant
number of their citizens want for proper education, housing, transportation,
and even nourishment.
They have created a rogue
military state which engages in terrorism of such magnitude that
terrorist acts committed by the Iraqi Resistance, while equally
as morally objectionable, are modest in comparison.
They have, through
their willful neglect of the general welfare, allowed 46 million Americans to
languish with no health insurance,
13% of their citizenry to experience poverty, 3% to experience homelessness,
24% of their Black populace live
in poverty, and 6% of their citizens
to experience unemployment.
These glaring blights on humanity are
inexcusable in the wealthiest
nation in history.
They have continued to loosen
federal regulations on the "free market" economy, thus further enriching their
plutocratic allies while impoverishing more and more Americans.
have worked tenaciously to perpetuate the exportation of neoliberal economic
policies to Latin America, crushing economies throughout that region, and
creating chasms between their rich and poor.
They have employed chemical
weapons, white phosphorus, in Iraq, violating numerous
treaties, conventions, and International Laws.
They have exposed their own
soldiers and the civilian inhabitants of occupied Iraq to the dangers of
depleted uranium projectiles.
