    Default Will the broken promises, lies and ripping off native americans ever end?

    This keystone xl pipeline(proudly brought to you by the republican party) seems to be the latest on this issue that has been going on since white people conquered usa with empty promises and guns. Before voting, i would suggest watching this talk about the history of this stuff in case you are not familiar with it:


    Northern Alberta, the region where tar sands oil is extracted, is home to many indigenous populations. Important parts of their cultural traditions and livelihood are coming under attack because of tar sands operations. Not only have indigenous communities been forced off of their land, but also those living downstream from tailing ponds have seen spikes in rates of rare cancers, renal failure, lupus, and hyperthyroidism. In the lakeside village of Fort Chipewyan, for example, 100 of the town’s 1,200 residents have died from cancer.

    These problems will only get worse, unless tar sands production is halted. Investing in a new pipeline would increase the rate of production, while decreasing the quality of life for indigenous populations.

    No company would be profitable if they had to pay for all of their externalities. Therefore, it's better to have government intervene and limit the liability of companies.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
