Moore: Did you know that the day that Columbine happened, the United States dropped more bombs on Kosovo than any other time during that war?
Marilyn: I do know that. And I think that that’s really ironic. Nobody said well, maybe the president had an influence on this violent behavior. Because that’s not the way the media wants to take in and spin it. Turn it into fear. You’re watching television, you’re watching the news. You’re being pumped full of fear. There’s floods, there’s AIDS, there’s murder. Cut to commercial. Buy the Accura. Buy the Colgate. If you have bad breath they’re not gonna talk to you, if you have pimples the girls are not gonna fuck you. And it’s just this campaign of fear and consumption. And that’s what I think it’s all based on, the whole idea: keep everyone afraid and they’ll consume. It’s that simple.
Moore: If you were to talk directly to the kids at Columbine, to the people of the community, what would you say to them, if they were hearing now?
Marilyn: I wouldn’t say a single word to them. I’d listen to what they have to say. And that’s what no one did.
