Thanks for your comments, Garnet. I appreciate your view.

It really is a very complex subject. I’ll admit, I really need to go back and brush up this piece. This whole phenomenon surrounding DAPL could (and probably will) be made into a novel in order to do justice to all the players that are making the DAPL protests happen and illustrate the reasons they are doing so.

What I tried to do with this piece is write a one-stop overview of the entire subject so people would have one reference they could turn to in order to get a sense of the big picture. It’s a 40-minute read and even then there’s a lot I left out.

Hopefully future revisions will earn your recommendation. Thanks for the feedback.
