We are all Nouveau Americans who came to this continent and this hemisphere. The Americas were named after the explorer Vespucci.
The original peoples still exist in the Americas despite the continental diseases and the religious beliefs imported from abroad and forced on an advanced culture living harmoniously with the planet.
Many descendants of the first Europeans to land on the shores of North America continue to respect their early roots and the abundance found right here.
These first to land on our continent came from repressed lives eager to begin anew as the old life was intolerable. In Jungian terms each immigrant brings some shadow aspect of his or her former life. Repressed in Europe well it takes a few generations to overcome that leftover mentality and incorporate the new reality of a land of plenty. Unfortunately many of those first Europeans landed and the indigenous peoples tried to show them how to survive but old ways created walls of resistance to the abundance around them. It was indeed hard to let go of the old and accept any advice from these heathens. Embracing native peoples was about the only way to survive, and the few that did are those early Americans.
The influx of immigrants has never ceased. So many oppressed from so many cultures forming a common dream of hope of a better life here in the States.
People risked their lives to arrive here. I remember the movie “America America” produced in the early sixties, and showing a pair of young lads setting out on a journey towards an image of America while enduring the pitfalls along the way. From thieves to crooked ticket brokers, through starvation and life threatening moments, one of the young men eventually makes the voyage across the Atlantic.
When candidates of either party pretend to be more patriotic than the next, it affronts anyone who knows that all this pseudo patriotism has never once honored the gift that this continent gave to the starving huddled masses of immigrants escaping the oppression of past and present environments.
Not one candidate or Nouveau American is capable of filling the moccasins of the past and present original indigenous peoples that left no trail nor poisoned their walk on the planet over greed and fear those greatest imports from across the planets ponds.Read More
