History ignored

It is an era dominated by industry, in which the right to make a dollar at whatever cost is seldom challenged.” — Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

I am always amazed that the supposedly enlightened government leaders insist on repeating the mistakes and uttering the lies for purely personal gains, and the people readily accept their words as gospel.

I have heard it said about criminals that they might have done great things if they had directed their energies for good rather than evil. My current feeling is that the same might be said of many politicians.
