The strong have conquered the weak through out time. The colonization of America is just one example.

So you're saying we're no better now than 75 or 750 years ago? What happens if some bigger dude beats the fuck out of you and steals your wallet? Is that simply the strong conquering the weak?

You can’t compare a project that is economically beneficial to many, including their own, to Putin looking to annex a nation. You’re not down on Commercial are you.

Putin didn't annex a nation. He rescued the several generations of Russian speaking nationals who were the majority in Crimea from the facists installed in Ukraine by the psychotic yanke scum.

I was. Pffffffffffft...........

Protests are doing nothing to resolve an argument amongst the leaders who want to work it out amongst themselves.  Let them do so and find their new way forward

And the blockade that supposedly started it is not what it appears. LOL

Not saying it's a good or bad thing, just saying that's the way it is. Survival of the fittest.

So the strong have no reason to be ethical? They get to just take whatever they want?

Pretty much. That quite often seems to be the reality of it.

Unfortunately yes, but why advocate for or be okay with that ideal?

do you think Canada is not being ethical about it, at least in recent times? we haven't always been, far from it, but i think the country is being as ethical as it can possibly be. i know this gets old, but i'ma say it anyways, imagine if this was the US, or oh, anywhere in the mid to far east? it would be a massacre.

If I rob your house to feed my family, that's also economically beneficial to many.  Does that make it right?

"Settlers use a number of strategies to maintain the colonial status quo, including distorting or dismissing the past, doublespeak and deceit, divide-and-conquer politics, paternalism, invoking a singular “rule of law,” and, of course, violence and coercion. Our hope is that by exposing some of the discursive tactics in the settler playbook – and putting them in historical context – we can help settlers to see these “moves to innocence” for what they are. As well, we want to show that settlers can choose how to respond in these moments. Instead of treading the familiar paths of colonial hubris that have led to so much pain and damage, we invite settlers to recognize the limits of our knowledge and experience and to listen to Indigenous elders, youth, scholars, and knowledge keepers. In the case of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, their calls are clear: the RCMP must leave their territory and the Coastal GasLink project must pause for nation-to-nation negotiations.

We have heard from the brave people putting their bodies on the line at numerous blockades that they are not there for themselves but for future generations. As Dr. Karla Tait, director of programming for the Unist’ot’en Healing Centre, states, Wet’suwet’en women are taking a stand “to protect the lands for all the future generations that depend on it.” Land defenders are acting out of love and are taking risks to protect land and life for us all. Instead of deploying the same old tactics and strategies to talk down to Indigenous people and to justify violence against them, we want to find generative and life-affirming ways to respond that might help shape a new playbook based on respect, good relations, and reciprocity."
