Cherokee Nation

CherokeeNation

Yup! Fucking sucks doesn’t it? Trail of tears bites big time. I’d like to step back and look at this from a broader perspective. We can’t get too maudlin, it serves no purpose. War is part of the human condition, probably always will be. I think of ant wars. The individual ants are like the individual in society. The good of the individual has been subsumed by the good of the society. In the case of ants, the activity is determined by pheromones. In the case of humans, ideology. But it’s the same thing. Mindless robots executing their programming. The question becomes, as supposedly intelligent beings, how do we rise above this programming? We’re heading for extinction if we don’t. Amerind, tamil, western, ALL. We no longer live in the paleolithic.

I intended to write about the cherokee nation. eLG thought I was missing the point. Needed to look at the big picture. Anybody know who the Aquitains are? I thought not. Even most Aquitains don’t. Cherokee got off lucky, they killed all the Aquitains, save one. A culture subsumed by a culture which was subsumed by yet another culture ad infinitum. There’s your wheels within wheels. Sometimes that’s the only choice there is, to die on your feet or live on your knees.

Consider the statue of the dying Gaul. He had just killed his wife and is about to kill himself. Romans respected that, and in fact glorified it. Doesn’t matter, they killed them all anyway. We are ALL survivors. None of us have a lock on rightousness. We have to get past this us/them mentality before we go extinct.

Ceaser’s really starting to get on my nerves.

“Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur ” – Ceasar

As to what happened, Amerinds (not all but some) picked the wrong side in the revolution. That is, they became conquered enemies rather than victorious allies. The diaspora would not have occured.
