    Mr Harper seems to be tuning into the same mentality as the guy who came up with the quote below;
    “Deprive the people of their national consciousness, treat them as a tribe and not a nation, dilute their national pride, do not teach their history, propagate their language as inferior, imply they have a cultural void, emphasise their customs are primitive, and dismiss independence as a barbaric anomaly”.
    Reinhard Heydrich, Hitler’s Head of Gestapo.
    I found this quote in an article relating to the present growth in those supporting Scottish independence from the UK (bring it on!)
    From my own perspective as a Scot with Irish roots (Celtic peoples who originally were strongly communitarian with a strong spiritual coneection to our lands
    and while many of us were part of the problem many millions more were victims of it) the commodification of life itself- to sate a form of greed which is in itself insatiable, namely the free market economy, will soon be in its death throes (hopefully) and will inevitably eat itself.
    Capitalism, as we thought we understood it, was about trickle down economics. Now its all trickle up with vast and growing gaps in wealth between the rich and the poor. They turn the sacred into the profane all for the sake of the quick buck. The political and economic culture of the present time has at its head people who are are unworthy of such power, many of them should actually be in prison if you look deep enough. They have no vision, no long term strategies and live in a self referential bubble where the bottom line is king. They are financial terrorists. People who are not in the bubble are regarded as mere pawns, are demonised and therefor deemed as expendable. Other species that dwell on our earth don’t even figure. Now is a bad time to be a child and it will be worse in the near future if we don’t come up with alternatives.

    This is HORRIBLE! Support from me in the land south of the border. And isn’t this exactly what the colonizers and missionaries tried to do? Doesn’t seem to be much change …. except, and this is a big one, First Peoples have restored and developed and contemporized their POWER! Go for it!
