“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. We had no locks, therefore there were no thieves. When someone was so poor he couldn’t afford a horse, tent or blanket, he would receive it all as a gift. We were in bad shape before white men arrived. I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for civilized society” - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976

"Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God." - Abraham Lincoln, 10/3/1863
