CBC Host: “Can you relate to that love/hate relationship that we [Canadians] have with the Americans?”

Shawn Phillips: “Yes, I can. I must preface this with the fact that I sell records everywhere in the world. It’s very difficult for me in the United States. America is a country that is frightened to death of the truth. And part of the problem of America right now is that the heartbeat of America is a TRUCK.”

Host: “And it sells commercials.”

Shawn: “And it sells commercials. They want to take as far as the culture and the art, moving back and forth. They want to make it a total business.”
