Can't wait to see this film, "Greedy Lying Bastards".
After Obama finally stood up to Big Oil, there is a growing feeling that we may have turned the corner. Big Oil is the new Big Tobacco, using all the same tactics of denial, obfuscation, lobbying, lying and burying all our heads in the sand (oil sands!). Is it possible that we will see the same educational tidal wave that put tobacco in its place? Will oil be seen, finally, as the most addictive substance so far devised by the powers that be to keep us all in thrall? Far worse than fags, far worse than drugs, far more destructive to our health, our grandchildren's health and that of the planet? Will we all see the connection between oil and our insatiable need to travel, get away, take off, get on the road, fly, drive, boat, skidoo, seadoo? "Getting high" on drugs is considered self-destructive. Getting high on travel/oil is considered perfectly normal even though its consequences are massively more damaging to all in the long run. We are horrified when we see native Canadian children on some blighted reserve, sniffing petrol but we fail to see our own deadly habit. Big Oil has us by the short and curlies. Will this film break through the film of oil that clouds our vision, letting us see the greedy lying bastards who control the world?
