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.

    The cited book has been proven to be as farcical as an inconvenient truth. It is an example of more damage done by the spread of lies in the hopes of dashing moving mankind in a meaningful way.

    But it is the ignorance of the voters that keep putting these politicians/criminals into office. Truth be told, most voters walk into the polling booth and click on names they recognize, not on what the politician says or stands for…..and THAT is why history is repeated!!

    Wow. Speaking of ignorant, that book has NOTHING to do with climate change. Does your nearly retired mouth like the taste of your shoe?
