When there is an argument about money, don't try to make it into an argument about morals. Reply in kind.
Some corrupt federated and incorporated fake "county governments" have seen a way to line their pockets with money from pipeline company and oil company profits. So they cut a deal allowing these corporations to put a pipeline through.
The problem for these corrupt "county" organizations is that they are just franchises (like Dairy Queen franchises) of parent corporations in the governmental services business. They don't actually have anything to say about it if the people form their own unincorporated land jurisdiction country assembly and say otherwise.
We dealt with this same problem in Nebraska, but did it intelligently.
