Corona Virus and The Air We Breath I propose in this article that Particulate Matter Pollution that kills 4.2 million people worldwide and 200,000 Americans every year, with half of these deaths come from air pollution from another state, is why the Navajo nation leads the United States in Coronavirus infections.

Governor of South Dakota Threatens Legal Action Against Lakota for Self-Protection Against COVID-19 On Friday, May 9th, both the Cheyenne River and the Oglala Lakota received mandates from Kristi Noem to take down any checkpoints on state roads going into the reservations. Chairman Harold Frazier of Cheyenne River unapologetically responded to the governor that they would continue protecting everyone on the reservation.

Getting the Truth "Out" These red flags of persuasion are signals to look deeper into what is being said. Is it possible that at least one of the "conspiracy theories" might have substance? Why not just give a medical statement about the origin of the virus and let others sift through alternative theories.

Worldview Reflection and Coming to Terms with a Terminal Prognosis for Civilization "The end of civilization as we know it" might be "just what the doctor ordered." I'm smiling at the truthful but sardonic irony of having joined these two idioms in one sentence. As much as it makes my point, it also conveys the kind of contradiction I hope to expose here. I find "doctor's orders" and modern civilization both tend to represent our Dominant Worldview (DW). I propose DW is the source of our existential crises

A More Efficient Cavalry: Anti-Indianism in America, Revisited At a recent conference call with fellow writers and educators, I discussed how Jeff Gibbs mentions in his new documentary, "The Planet of the Apes," that our not wanting to think of ourselves as animals and our fear of death are major reasons for our destruction of life systems, implying that other cultures have a different story.

What Everyone is Missing".Again (Going "viral" is not sufficient) Michael Moore tells Steven Colbert that his new documentary, "Planet of the Humans," is about the need to take "a different road," but he missed the most important clip in the film that says what that road is- as has everyone else!

Self-Triage in a Catastrophic World (A Decolonizing Perspective) Our colonized mindsets make authentic self-care an act of irreverence for the hegemonic systems leading us to the bring of extinction. Covid-19 might have reminded us of this, but it hasn't. If triage is about examining problems in order to decide which ones are the most serious and must be dealt with first so as to save the most people, we are not doing it well enough. In fact, the colonized mind cannot save itself.

Suspending Environmental Regulations Proves the Insanity of our Dominant Worldview and the Logic that Supports it With the recent suspension of any environmental protection regulations for corporations the insanity denying human-caused climate change expands to not only denying human-caused pandemics but authorizes potential behaviors that will continue the destruction of animal habitats that are responsible for such pandemics, such as deforestation. Deforestation in Europe and Asia throughout the 1300s contributed to the pandemic known

Corruption Masquerading as Due Process? I woke up this morning pondering how the Republicans are getting away with what they are doing to control the impeachment hearings and how the Democrats are not only going along with it but have just supported reauthorization of the Patriot Act behind the scenes.

Invisible No More: Please Let's Do This Together (Remembering the Other Original Sin) African Americans and Native Americans (aka American Indians) should be together in any discussion seeking to bring about reckoning America's history of racism, oppression, discrimination and inequality. Unfortunately "Indians" remain all but invisible in politics and media covering the new reparations efforts for descendants of Black slaves .

"President" No More (How Media Language Helps Keep Trump Going) when "President" is not attached to Trump in media reports, people associate this with a lack of respect. This is exactly why we should start implementing the strategy!

Speaking of Wellstone David Wellstone said his Dad "would have gotten under this president's skin by now. He wouldn't have backed down from this kind of stuff. It would have energized him." In trying to get Wellstone Action to take such action, to their great surprise and dismay, the two men were voted off the board. I have no evidence to conclude that the "crises of courage" has some role to play in this decision, but I think it must.

And Then Mother Earth Said, "Me Too!" The "Me Too" movement's unprecedented number of courageous women speaking out against their famous male abusers could signal hope for our planetary crises. We just have to realize that the source of such rampant anti-feminine oppression is an uninvestigated worldview that places humans above Nature and ignores the importance of diversity and complementarity.

Trump's DAPL Memorandum: The End of Rule of Law? Rule of law" assumes that law should govern a nation rather than the personal desire of a government official. Rachel Klienfeld Belton, a legal scholar and Director of the Truman National Security Project writes that rule of law in a democracy is identified by "the efficient and predictable application of justice and the protection of human rights."

Shootings on Backwater Bridge Late afternoon yesterday "Lunatic Outpost" released a video showing a group of about "20 to 50" water protectors who while returning from a prayer walk along the Cannonball River were chased down by armed security from DAPL and Morton County Sheriff's Department.

No Sitting for Standing Rock, Please My ultimate goal is to encourage water protectors worldwide to be more determined than ever in the face of the incoming administration of Donald Trump. This may seem an impossible task but perhaps without the deceptive language of those who came before that only veiled Trump's anti-environment intentions, it may be easier than we can imagine if we keep up the effort.

Veteran's Day at Standing Rock: Perhaps Not What You Think Today's Veteran's Day, filling me with mixed emotions. On the one hand there is a sense of pride and a continuing sense of loyalty to the Corps. Like the the marine-turned-avatar in James Cameron's Avatar said, "You never lose the attitude." On the other hand, there's the knowledge the Marine Corps mostly works for the corporations just like the National Guard is now working for Energy Transfer Partners at Standing Rock
