In his Nov. 24 letter, Dick Pigeon complains about Biden shutting down Keystone. What he seems all too willing to ignore is that Keystone was built through sovereign tribal land, that it put water supplies in danger and that the pipeline (as is typical in America) placed corporate greed over the citizens and their rights. And then there is the fact that, when met with nonviolent protests, Trump and the government responded with violence.
We hear it every day – certain people complaining about their “rights” – yet by now it’s all too clear that the only rights that matter are those of greedy and selfish people who have no problem trampling on the rights of everyone else.
Sadly, this is nothing new in our country – it’s been going on for over 300 years, since before America’s founding. But we’d rather follow lies than acknowledge the truth and fix things.
