Mourn Learn Engage

The Civil Rights Movement was co-opted by state and market interests. The human rights movement, likewise, was defeated by international institutions--such as the UN and World Bank--that serve these same interests. The indigenous movement, however--united by relationships and values that precede states, markets, and institutions--remains a viable social phenomenon, offering an authentic counternarrative to the synthetic corporate message.

Whether the latter can endure long enough to attract sufficient support from civil society to affect a change to a sustainable way of life, remains to be seen.
