Discussing the North Dakota Access Pipeline (NDAP)

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Daniel Sv, after he shared a captioned graphic from here

Daniel Sv.:

So I still have friends on my page liking and sharing these anti-pipeline articles and memes. If you don't pipeline for a living, and you're not from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, or Illinois then you should really stay out of this conversation, especially if you're just going to keep sharing the same lies over and over. I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but this is not about opinions, it's about facts, and the facts are; the Dakota access pipeline DOES NOT cross the Standing Rock reservation, it DOES have all the necessary permits and approvals, and it is NOT disturbing any burial grounds This information is easily accessible online with a quick Google search, but I'll include a map anyway, in case you don't have time to research the lies you're sharing. And here are the links showing they have the permits, and that North Dakota's top archeologists surveyed these sites and found nothing. http://m.bismarcktribune.com/news/opinion/guest/all-eyes-on-north-dakota-full-story-isn-t-being/article_5dc1e955-fd71-5003-86be-0fa0f29d7fbc.htmlhttp://www.kcci.com/article/archaeologist-no-human-remains-found-at-pipeline-site/6922493And before you start in about possible water contamination, that's just another scare tactic. The Missouri river will be directionally drilled and the pipeline will have the latest technologies and monitoring systems to help prevent releases and will be constructed 90 feet below the riverbed to ensure nothing may reach the river — far above and beyond what’s required by federal regulations. Don't be fooled, the battle right now may be against this pipeline, but the war is on oil. I know some of you hate oil (even though you consume as much as the rest of us on a daily basis) but there simply is not enough renewable energy to meet the current demand, so this oil WILL be brought to market one way or another, and the safest way is via pipeline. They have a smaller carbon footprint and are 4.5 times less likely to cause a spill than trains. It's an easy choice. So don't tell me you're against pipelines because you care about the environment, because the two ideas are contradictory. With that being said, I will not hold back any longer, if you've got the nerve to post these lies, I will call you out on it, so you better do your research before you chime in on something that you know nothing about.

Rayn: The protesters, also called “water protectors,” are attempting to prevent the Missouri River from possible destruction in the event of a pipeline leak.

This much more detailed map accurately portrays this fact:

The Genocidal Truths Surrounding the So-Called “Discovery” of America

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

"A depiction of Columbus’ hunting dogs feeding on natives."

“A depiction of Columbus’ hunting dogs feeding on natives.”

7 Myths and Atrocities of Christopher Columbus That Will Make You Cringe:
http://usuncut.com/world/7-myths-and-atrocities-of-christopher-columbus-that-will-make-you-cringe/

() (Inspired by Vince Schilling‘s article for Indian Country Today Media Network: Read it here.)

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, so goes the elementary school rhyme. But Columbus also committed numerous crimes against humanity that we never learned about in school. This coming Monday, whenever you see a status update or tweet mentioning Columbus Day, share this article in response. On the anniversary of Columbus’ landing, it’s important for everyone to remember that Christopher Columbus was one of the most evil men to ever walk the earth, and that the myths propagated about him were completely wrong.

My Commentary: I discovered and read “Bartoleme de Las Casas, Brief Account of the Devastation of the Indies. (1542)” in the public library when I was around 9 or 10 years old, and innocently searching for any information I could find on the Native American portion of my family’s ancestry. It changed my views on EVERYTHING, FOREVER… Needless to say, the very first thing to go was any semblance of trust that I had in public schooling. Never again would allow the institution to “interfere with my education” (to paraphrase Mark Twain)…

American Government is a Rogue Entity, Representing Only Itself

The following correspondence originally took place here, on the Facebook page, “Indigenous Americans“…

(replies from all third parties have been omitted for clarity)

Indigenous Americans: 20 Protesters Arrested, While Police Shut Down Road Access to North Dakota Access Pipeline Near Standing Rock Reservation:

Your Comment Needed : COMMENT “YES” if you think what is happening to Natives is WRONG !

Around 20 people have just been arrested.Police have SHUT DOWN all road access to the site and are carrying assault rifles and less-lethal weapons.

WE NEED YOUR HELP. PLEASE SHARE IT. MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT REPORTING IT

Rayn: The American government is a rogue entity, and represents ONLY itself. They are terrorists holding the majority of those living here hostage.

Obama’s So-Called “Halt” of the North Dakota Access Pipelin Was Just Political Posturing, and Maneuvering

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

RaynBreaking: Riot Police Begin Mass-Arrests at Dakota Access Pipeline, FB Censors Video:

Jonas A.: Dafuq???

Rayn: Obama’s so-called “halt” was just political posturing, and maneuvering. The war criminal is a professional liar, so it’s not very surprising.

Though the meddling, thieving Imperial State is the REAL REASON behind this whole controversy, in the first place, that fact seems completely lost on most content-to-be-historically-illiterate Americans. So, Obama simply created a false sense of “conclusion” for the average authoritarian-fellating Statist, who then felt comfortable enough to begin directing their shallow display of “outrage” onto more popular, mainstream-media-monopoly-selected topics.

Successfully Peaceful and Prosperous Anarchy Has Existed All Throughout the Humanity’s History

The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I shared artwork posted to the page, “Anarchist Memes” by a fan…

Rayn:

"What people think Anarchy is What Anarchy really is"

“What people think Anarchy is
What Anarchy really is”

Murilo M.: I like your posts Rayn, but this is one I have to disagree with. How can you be sure? Have you ever seen a country in which anarchy worked well?

Rayn: “I am often asked if anarchy has ever existed in our world, to which I answer: almost all of your daily behavior is an anarchistic expression. How you deal with your neighbors, coworkers, fellow customers in shopping malls or grocery stores, is often determined by subtle processes of negotiation and cooperation. Social pressures, unrelated to statutory enactments, influence our behavior on crowded freeways or grocery checkout lines. If we dealt with our colleagues at work in the same coercive and threatening manner by which the state insists on dealing with us, our employment would be immediately terminated. We would soon be without friends were we to demand that they adhere to specific behavioral standards that we had mandated for their lives.

Should you come over to our home for a visit, you will not be taxed, searched, required to show a passport or driver’s license, fined, jailed, threatened, handcuffed, or prohibited from leaving. I suspect that your relationships with your friends are conducted on the same basis of mutual respect. In short, virtually all of our dealings with friends and strangers alike are grounded in practices that are peaceful, voluntary, and devoid of coercion.” – Butler Shaffer

Rayn“Until shortly before the common era, the very last 1 percent of human history, the social landscape consisted of elementary self-governing kinship units that might, occasionally, cooperate in hunting, feasting, skirmishing, trading, and peacemaking. It did not contain anything one could call a state. In other words, living in the absence of state structures has been the standard human condition.” – Yale professor, James C. Scott
