Sample text

This campaign really put Greenpeace on the map and made us a worldwide icon. By the early 1980s we were confronting the annual slaughter of baby seals, opposing driftnet fisheries, protesting toxic waste dumping, blocking supertankers, and parachuting into nuclear reactor construction sites. Our campaigns were highly successful at changing opinions and energizing the public. Through the power of the media and the people, we were steadily influencing government policies and forcing industries to clean up their acts.

We could hardly believe what our ragtag band of peaceniks had accomplished in just a few short months. We realized that a few people could change the world if they just got up and did something. It was the beginning of a very wild ride. High on the victory of vanquishing a world superpower, in early 1972 we repeated our “take it to ground zero” protests with France, which was still conducting atmospheric tests of atomic and hydrogen bombs on Mururoa, a small atoll in the South Pacific. France had refused to sign the 1963 treaty banning atmospheric testing signed by the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and the United States.

In the strictest sense, then, there is no place for dishonesty or misinformation in one’s philosophy of life. It is the pure expression of truth. But in the realm of ideas and opinions there are many shades of gray between black and white. The use of loaded words, their inflection and context, and the confusion of belief with proven fact create a minefield that is difficult to navigate. Add large doses of self-righteousness, fanaticism, and a willingness to use force and you have the turmoil of history as individuals, tribes, and nations come into conflict over control of people and resources.
