Nice Quote

31 Oct

The corporations that shred habitat and contaminate your air and water are anything but democratic. Stand in line to get your 30 seconds in front of a microphone at a public hearing about the siting of a nuclear power plant, the effluent from a factory farm, or the removal of a mountaintop and you’ll get the picture quickly enough: the corporations that profit from such ecological destruction are distant, arrogant, secretive, and unresponsive. The 1% is willing to spend billions impeding democratic initiatives, which is why every so-called environmental issue is also about building a democratic culture. – Tom Dispatch: Chip Ward 10/25/11
