A Generative Crisis

San Francisco City Hall

The idea (see Pallas' post below) that tribal leaders are now considering forgiveness is stunning.  Sitting Bull?  Crazy Horse?  What might we learn from this?  What kinds of organizing, what kinds of nonviolence might emerge from their courage at Standing Rock?  Is it even possible that, centuries from now, historians of the planet will look back at Standing Rock as a generative crisis, one that caused all of us to think and act differently?
