Any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up.
As you have fewer and fewer voices in a democracy, in a free society, it’s not good to limit the number of voices.

We have to see that we’re a part of each other, and we have to take care of each other. The reason why they have universal health care in Canada and Britain, these other places? Because they believe if one suffers, everybody suffers.
This is the crux of the problem: because the Republicans and the right wing have been successful in almost eliminating unions, everyone else has suffered as a result.
Every fact in my films is true. And yet how often do I have to read over and over again about supposed falsehoods?
I don’t like to sit around whining about the corporate media, how they control everything, own everything. We already know that.
Should such an ignorant people lead the world? How did it come to this in the first place? 82 percent of us don’t even have a passport! Just a handful can speak a language other than English.

There’s an arrogance to that concept if you think about it. To actually have to sit down and talk, to listen, to compromise, that’s hard work.
