Canadian Politics

Tar Sands and Democracy

But more alarming [than the economic deterioration caused by reliance on tar sands] is the way the tar sands industry is undermining Canadian democracy. By suggesting that anyone who questions the industry is unpatriotic, tar sands interest groups have made the industry the third rail of Canadian politics.

~ Thomas Homer-Dixon (1956 age:61) in The Tar Sands Disaster

Confirmation Seeking

One of the most distressing features of humans is they don’t seek truth, they seek confirmation for what they already believe. Further, they will attempt to censor anything that counters that belief.

~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
