Thread Name: BS: The Indigenous Peoples Outlook
Subject: RE: BS: The Indigenous Peoples Outlook
"I think most people in the world were at one time peasants or serfs and just wanted enough food and shelter and an occasional Maypole dance and did not have bad intentions..."

That's the deal. That's my point. WE are ALL in this together. "Indigenous Peoples" are not the only ones who want a better world and they certainly don't lead the way just because some of them make videos touting their environmental superiority. My First Nations buddies are cool dudes but just a stroll down the road are guys who bang moose and leave em if they end up in tough cover.

Fact is, the ideal is laudible but the reality is real. If some say I am shitting on indigenous peoples or being negative in any way I disagree... I am being real. Anyone, red or white or polka dot, who does good for the environment is doing right. Anyone who says any group is at fault is generalizing and that's what pisses me off... to no end. And, yes, that is what I think was being said by the OP. Say all you want in the opposite, it was quite clear to me.
