Hawaii’s quest for a new type of independence

Boston Globe, July 23, 2018 has an opinion piece by Steven Kinzer, author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, arguing that Hawaii’s unique history, geography and culture qualify it for “some form of special status” in relation to the United States.

    I read the article it is such a confused mess of truths and untruths and just plain ignorance. Though to attempt to be kind, I’ve been on a learning curve for years as to the international status of the Hawaiian Kingdom. But, to make any excuses for the United States’ fraudulent annexation and continued occupation…because “the way things are, are the way things are”, to quote Babe, is just pathetic! The time is upon us, in my educated opinion, that there will be the ignorant, those educating themselves, and the wilfully ignorant. “The overthrow of the Royal Family” that’s a new one. What do these people do make it up as they go along? It’s a wilful twisting of the Nation’s continued sovereignty.
