Why does centralized power feel so much like anarchy?

From lakotalaw — Greetings from the Cheyenne River Nation! Over the past couple weeks, you may have seen some of the news abut our recent celebration of Wounded Knee Liberation Day’s 50th anniversary. The full weekend included a number of activities — including a ceremony, educational panels, the annual Four Directions Walk, and Warrior Women Project’s interactive exhibit on the women leaders of the American Indian Movement (AIM). Today, I urge you to watch our video narrated by my daughter, Marcella, featuring some of the weekend’s highlights.
If you’ve been reading our emails, you’re already aware that what happened in the village of Wounded Knee a half century ago will live on forever. When law enforcement converged on the Pine Ridge Reservation and put us under a months-long siege, they unwittingly gave us an unparalleled media platform. We became a fixture on nightly news broadcasts, and suddenly our movement to win justice and promote the sovereignty of Native nations inspired solidarity across the world.
Today, that movement has only gained momentum, thanks to allies like you and new generations of Native leaders like Marcella, my granddaughter DeCora Hawk, Chase Iron Eyes, Chase’s daughter Tokata, and many more. And new forms of media now give us increased control of our own message. We have the agency and visibility to build alliances and resistance efforts and the means to amplify our concerns.
Your support is so critical to making sure Indigenous communities struggle less and thrive more. As far as we’ve come, too many Native People remain on the frontlines of the environmental justice battle. From mining and pipelines to cultural appropriation, we’re reminded every day that racism is real. So, as always, my deep appreciation and gratitude to you for all that you do to move us forward.
Wopila tanka — thank you for your friendship!

One believes, if memory serves, that Ed Markey supported Biden for President. One also watched a self-defined environmental supporter as she was interviewed on MSNBC, expressing disappointment in lack of follow-through on campaign promises by Biden. This same celebrity has over decades, supported the Democratic Party that hasn’t followed through on policies as articulated during campaigns far too often to be incidental. But then, as they say, “everybody does it”……
https://www.rt.com/news/572923-biden-approves-alaska-oil-project/ –US Senator Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, was among the critics who blasted Biden’s “disastrous decision,” claiming it “sends the wrong message to our international partners.” The politician argued that the move “not only leaves an oil stain on the administration’s climate accomplishments and the president’s commitment not to permit new oil and gas drilling on federal land, but slows our progress in the fight for a more livable future and puts into harm’s way the neighboring native village of Nuiqsut and the Arctic landscape.”

Lack of veracity from political-Party corporations is a reason some people don’t take seriously the Democratic Party any more than the Republican Party.
Some of said D&R Base supporters become irate when others mention the smoke and mirrors and support systems aside from capitalism. Criticism of erroneous policies by either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party are met with accusations of some sort of attack toward personality traits as owned by groups of voters who often support said duopoly. This seems to forestall questions about bad policy as personal attacks or prejudices toward people. And so to oppose policy becomes synonymous with personal attacks. This is a problem.
We have watched political campaigns that have become veritable food fights between types attempting to become our leaders. Meanwhile actual issues and policies go unaddressed. But probably this is good for media ratings.

Still, even those measures have not been enough to cripple the Russian economy. Western officials have conceded that the decisions made by the Russian government to push back against sanctions have helped the country’s fiscal base hold up in spite of the challenging environment.
What did Russia do to mitigate the effect of sanctions, and how long can it sustain its resilience?

A characteristic if capitalism is that concepts sound so good until they don’t. –https://www.aol.com/finance/gop-senators-pushed-keep-banking-152706593.html —
In a letter dated March 3 to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, and nine of his GOP colleagues expressed concern that an ongoing Federal Reserve review may go beyond a 2018 law that eased regulations on smaller banks and “may unjustly increase capital requirements and have a chilling effect on market making activities and availability of financial services.”–end of aol info–
