Notes:
Western culture banks on us never becoming angry. As long as we don’t remember our histories and what they did to us to strip us what’s ours and displace us in their backwards societies, we won’t get angry. As long as we’ve accepted their conditioning, we’ll stigmatize anger and never allow ourselves to see our “lifestyles” here as us being refugees. We have allowed them to domesticate us in too many ways! When we allow ourselves to get angry at how they enslaved, colonized, renamed, and murdered us for sport; when we realize that this whole society is built on our ancestors’ backs and that this culture keeps us in disease and disarray—we have beginnings of returning to who we are and never allowing them to have part in it. Today many of us are still caught in their matrix because we make exceptions, we don’ t want them to think we’re uncivilized by calling out and acting out on their generational violence towards us, we are afraid to lose our illusionary positions in their system, and don’t want to lose whatever we’ve amassed for ourselves here.

Anger is the beginning, not an end. Get angry enough to reroute your generation. Get angry enough to stop giving them your goodness. Get angry enough to trace their evils through your ages and call out how you’ve acted in agreement with it just to get by. Get angry enough at how they thought they’d be able to brainwash you into submission. Get angry at how they demonized your supernatural instincts and gave you “technology.” Get angry at how they condescended your agricultural living and now promulgate “ecofriendly” living; how they burned down your wigwams and now live in “tiny homes”; how they killed off wolves, birds, and buffaloes and now command the world to practice “conservation.” Get angry into reversing the generational curses that assimilation catalysed. And embark on the journey to dewesternize yourself.
