...and wealthy people will recreate on them.
In an article titled, "Do Native Americans Have First Amendment Rights?" by Leslie Thatcher, we learn that the Ninth Circuit Court has decided that yes, indeed, the U.S. government says it is OK to rub treated sewage all over indigenous sacred sites so wealthy and semi-wealthy folks can ski down them. The U.S. knows what is really sacred, and their god is flat, green, and has the faces of genocidal maniacs on them.
This is not surprising to me. This is nothing new. This is a clear and consistent pattern of the U.S. If it produces capital, it is sacred and holy. If it is natural, then god fucked up and it has to be made sacred and holy (aka, produce capital). That is the way it has been for quite a few centuries. That is also why I look forward to the collapse despite any consequences I may pay when it happens.
