Voices silenced – Shame!

First we slay the dreamers – then silence discussion and spread misinformation – finally, call it God’s will. These methods have been used for centuries by those in power to gain control and further their own economic ends.

We have just recently seen this approach manifested in the mass firing of Canadian ocean scientists – yes, Canada! The scientists who were fired conducted ocean research for decades on pollutants that contaminated marine mammals and fisheries. This action effectively eliminates research into the effects of oil and gas drilling on oceanic resources, not only for Canada but for most of the planet.

If there were to be a memorial built to these scientists an inscription at the base of it might read: “As the wizards faded into the new night and fog the cry ‘profits uber alles’ was shouted and sheep echoed in chorus.”
