I like the motto of that guild club in Damien's "The White Abacus":
"Every Sen a Chief, None An Indian".  The major malfunction causing the
deterioration of the republic and individual liberties is the
pernicious prevalence of the idea that equality means dragging everyone
down to the lowest common denominator, that all are proles. For both
liberty and equality to exist, every person must be a king, not a
prole. Reclaim your individual sovereignty, hold it tightly, greedily.
Do not lightly lend it out to bureaucrat or contractor.

At least one US census I stated I was a native American. Speaking of
which, I've been hearing more about this Pembina Band of N-A indians
that Prof. Ward Churchill was a 'member' of. A friend is also a member
of the band, and they seem to be pretty libertarian in orientation.
They are setting up their own currency and banking system.

But that wouldn't give any thug the opportunity to assault any other
passenger. Subways, however, tend to be far more packed during
rush-hour, at least in cities like NY and Boston.
