That war took the form of deceptive agreements, settlements, outright violence, genocide, and, after defeat on the battlefield, an attempt to erase Native American culture and history from the minds of the victims. This war on Native Americans has never ended. Instead, it has only intensified with the lessons learned from the indoctrination and police state techniques used on the majority American population via television, law enforcement brutality, austerity/dependency, and of course … Continue reading GENOCIDE FOR PROFIT – HOW THE GOV’T, BIG PHARMA, PSYCHIATRY, AND DSS ARE CONSPIRING TO DESTROY NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE
