Who are the all-time most conservative people in America?
Who are the most liberal?
You might assume that the most conservative people might be small-town midwestern Christians, and that the most liberal people might be San Franciscan gays or hippies.
But are those stereotypes accurate?
What could be more conservative than a native american who followed traditions largely unchanged for hundreds of years, who took only as much as he and his family needed, who used every single part of the animal he killed and wasted nothing, and whose spiritual beliefs formed the basis for every part of his life?
What could be more liberal than the "seven generations" concept of the Iroquois:
The Great Law of the Iroquois League imposed a duty upon leaders to "have always in view not only the present, but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground—the unborn of the future Nation," and the Iroquois tradition is to consider the impact of decisions on the next seven generations.
The Iroquois sought to protect his environment so that it could keep providing healthy food and good living. They were peacemakers who negotiated conflicts between other tribes. And the women elders had impeachment power to sideline a male leader who acted for himself instead of for the good of the tribe.
Am I saying that we should all dress up like native Americans and show up at pow wows? No.
I'll I'm saying is that the strategy of the elite is always to create false stereotypes to divide and conquer us and turn us against one another.
I'm saying that we need to think for ourselves about what conservative and what liberal means, and which parts of each we want to embrace and which parts we don't want any part of.
I'm saying don't let others define you. Define yourself.Note: The Iroquois also came up with the separation of powers form of government which, apparently, inspired the Founding Fathers. See this and this.
