Quotable: George Monbiot on the end of corporate impunity

“For two centuries corporations and governments from the rich world have treated the people they encounter overseas as nothing but obstacles to the extraction of resources, who — when they could not be enslaved to assist that work — had to be disposed of as expeditiously as possible: by bribery, deception, terror or massacre. The richer the resources a land possesses, the more viciously its inhabitants are treated. Now these inconvenient people might begin to be seen as human beings.”

–George Monbiot, “Shell: Corporate impunity goes on trial”
