The Dakota Access Pipeline: The Atrocity Is Almost Complete
It looks like corporate greed and service financial interests have won out over the health, safety, and well-being of the American people. The latest atrocity against the planet and its inhabitants, known as The Dakota Access Pipeline is finished and ready for oil to start flowing through it. At a time when our entire planet faces the dangers of global warming, and our society should be divorcing ourselves from fossil fuels, in favor of renewable energy sources, billions of dollars were spent on technology that is obsolescent. This money could have been so much better spent on developing renewable “green energy” sources.
Despite the Standing Rock Sioux winning first court rulings against the pipeline, which not only desecrate their tribal land and endangers their water supply, Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) has announced that the Dakota Access Pipeline is finished. Donald Trump coming into the White House seems to have changed everything because the Obama administration was very willing to work with the Standing Rock Sioux and almost stopped the pipeline from being built.
Of course, an anti-regulation businessman like Donald Trump, who once owned stock in ETP (talk about your conflict of interest) just had to cave into corporate interests and allow The Dakota Access Pipeline to continue. After all, he had to show some solidarity with his fellow corporate greed Masters and allow this atrocity to go unchecked.
Isn’t it great how these capitalists always stick together, when we the common people seem to argue about everything, no matter how trivial? It would be so great if we would stop playing the game by their rules and start winning by our rules? As long as we allow them to keep on successfully using “the divide and conquer tactic” to keep us all in line, nothing will change.
