Like so many battles ongoing in our society the Klamath water struggle is simply (beneath the spiritual level anyway) an issue of Left vs. Right, Competing Marxisms vs. Capitalism, oppression vs. freedom.
The mind set of those who cut our irrigation water off and continue to fiendishly dominate it hasn’t changed. The mind set of some of those affected by the 2001 water cut off has changed however. To them the bad guys are now the ones who were the victims then and continue to resist those same scandalous forces now. Some say that a change of that nature may indicate that they have actually taken on the perspective of the aggressor. That new worldview may have been adopted for any number of reasons, many of which could well have been good and noble in the beginning.
The veiled essence of that regressive Progressive perspective is captured in a You Tube video titled; “Occupy Cascadia Documentary”. After viewing such you may start to understand why it was that a May 30, 2013 rally was held some six + hours away from Klamath Falls in Portland, Oregon. The event was organized to thank Senator Ron Wyden for his support of the KBRA/KHSA. As some may know, Portland is the political heart and soul of Cascadia. And no, K Falls isn’t a yarnhead controlled commune locale yet, so an assembly as such would not come off quite so well appreciated here - local newspaper coverage aside.
