"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    This is corporate narcissism, really at the core of it all. No accountability. It’s an old story at this point but I believe it ALL comes down to Invenergy’s belief that this is a done deal and all the drama in between is just that. All they have to do is wait it out. Gov Raimondo made a promise and they are counting on her ability to deliver. And Mayor Baldelli-Hunt, a Raimondo wannabe, is in on the dirty deal. She went ahead without her City Council and met with Invenergy. Pretty sure we all know what that conversation was about. So…..does the Woonsocket City Council have the moral fortitude to kick the proposal to sell Invenergy water to the curb?

    That the governor still wants this plant after all the lies tells us all we need to know about her moral charcter.
