Bill Moyers Interviews Tim DeChristopher

"We have a two-tiered justice system in this country. We don’t really have a rule of law, we have two justice systems. The division is not necessarily strictly between rich people and poor people, the division is between those that promote the concentration of power in the hands of the elite versus those that threaten to distribute that power, or take away some of that power. I think part of the mistake that a lot of people make is thinking that the law, or words like ‘legal,’ are synonymous with ‘moral’ or ‘just,’ and that’s not the case. Most of our great examples of morality throughout history are people who broke the law."

"We are on this path of rapid change. We know we’re going down this path of unprecedented change, and so it’s really important who is calling the shots during that time. The collapse of industrial civilization with an ignorant, apathetic citizenry that’s afraid of their own government and feels like they have to accept whatever corporations want to do, that’s really scary, that’s really ugly, and that’s, I think, the big challenge that we face now."
