PROPAGANDHIA Public Dis-service Announcement From Shell Lyrics
("clear thinking in troubled times": winnipeg
free press, nov 21st, 1995) "people have the right
to the truth. unvarnished.
even uncomfortable. but never subjugated to a cause, ho
Noble or well-meaning. they have the right to clear
thinking. slogans, boycotts and protests don't offer
answers... (I)t has been suggested that shell should
pull out of developing nations alto
R. the oil would certainly continue flowing.
the business would continue operating.
the vast majority of the employees would remain in
place. but the sound and ethical business practices synonym
Ith shell, the environmental investment,
and the tens of millions of dollars spent on community
programs would all be lost.
again, it's the people of developing nations that you would hurt. it's
Enough to sit in your comfortable homes in the west,
calling for sanctions and boycotts against a developing
country. but you have to be sure that knee-jerk reactions
won't do more harm than go
Ome campaigning groups say that we should in
Tervene in the political process in developing nations.
but even if we could, we must never do so.
politics is the business of governments and politicians.
the world where companies use their ec
C influence to prop up or bring down governments would
be a frightening and bleak one indeed."(ha. ha.)
