Fred Upton
I’m not a dispensationalist – I don’t believe in the Rapture. I think it’s an unbiblical doctrine, and in North American Christianity, at least, it is the teaching that is the root of much of our subculturalism.

Right now, there are a limited number of customers for Canadian oil. Due to simple geography – and without the pipeline – it’s really only cost effective for Canadian oil producers to sell their oil to North American customers, mostly American Midwesterners.

It’s not hard to look at our own world and draw parallels between 9/11, for example, and how Muslims are viewed or treated by North American culture since then. Just to see the way fear can breed hatred and intolerance for people who aren’t the same as us – and that’s certainly part of what’s at the heart of ‘Descender.’
Jeff Lemire
The TV show ‘How It’s Made’ brings the intricate details of assembly lines to numerous North American living rooms. But if the series were to ever branch into exposing the secrets of music production, Colin Stetson’s ‘New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges’ would make for a mind-bending episode.

One of the characteristics of North American culture is that you can always start again. You can always move forward, cross a border of a state or a city or a county, and move West, most of the time West. You leave behind guilt, past traditions, memories.

Ever since the 1860s when photographers travelled the American West and brought photographs of scenic wonders back to the people on the East Coast of America we have had a North American tradition of landscape photography used for the environment.

Zac Goldsmith
As the eldest son of an Alabama sharecropper family, I was constantly troubled by a collage of North American southern behaviors and notions in reference to the inhumanity of people.

The colour of a British wood in autumn is predominantly yellow. There are relatively few European trees which have red leaves in the autumn.
