People at the lowest end of the evolutionary ladder, spiritually and ethically speaking, are thieves. They come down to Mother Earth and take her children's lives away from her, eat the animals, steal the lands, turn everything into a way to profit in the short term illusion for themselves. In reality, these material "gains" are meaningless, and actually force the soul farther down the ladder so that next lifetime they are at a greater disadvantage and forget their spiritual selves and purposes even more. Eventually, they, too, become victimized as Karma is exacting. Kill and steal in this lifetime, it is a certainty the cruelty and lack of fairness will be imposed upon the soul in the same manner. Unless all humans agree to end this karmic cycle by refusing to kill of steal...now, the killing and stealing will continue on into perpetuity.

From the beginning with the first boats it was all about conquest and taking back to the Kings and Queens what was found. The murdering, rape, and pillaging upon the original people who lived upon these lands continues on to this day and has morphed into everyones backyard.

Because this society failed to see the canary in the coal mine, the First Nations people, the rest of society is now the canary. If the American people don't rise up soon, they will be left in the same poverty and despair that is now being lived by many of the First Nations and American Indians upon this land. If you manage to pull your butts up and out of this mess, don't forget those who have been oppressed and downtrodden the longest.
